IMG_2680Another milestone in the evolution of Downtown Disney into the new Disney Springs was celebrated on September 14th as the first pedestrian bridge was opened. The bridge spans the expanded Buena Vista Drive, connecting the Team Disney building (used for overflow parking) and a walkway near the Orange Parking garage.IMG_2682IMG_2684The bridge, while serving the purpose of helping alleviate the ever-growing foot traffic across a very busy road, also gives some great views of the construction going on not only on Buena Vista Drive but also the Town Center area of Disney Springs.IMG_2685 IMG_2686 IMG_2688Heading into Disney Springs for a quick look around, we see that the Westside is still pretty much the same as it has been for the past few months with the exception of more of the “L” train tracks.IMG_2695 Moving toward The Landing (former Pleasure Island), we see the skeleton of the once proud Adventurers Club waiting to be part of The Edison in the coming weeks.IMG_2697In the former location of the Comedy Warehouse, we have STK American Steakhouse taking shape.
