Downtown Disney Update: Future Hyperion Wharf, Pleasure Island, Marketplace – Photos & Video

Hi everyone!

We walked the length of Downtown Disney yesterday to see what was new – and it turns out that plenty is! Pleasure Island will soon become Hyperion Wharf (below, left), and there is a small amount of noticeable progress in that direction (below, right). We have video showing the former nightclubs being torn down HERE.

The area that used to encompass the Rock & Roll Beach Club and Motion was turned into what has been referred to as a “grassy knoll” a few weeks back (below, left and right). We have closer photos of what is going on there as you look down the article. Looking at the concept art above, it seems there will be terraced seating and I am assuming a stage of some sort.

Video #1 – Downtown Disney Future Hyperion Wharf Area From Boat 4/14/11 Walt Disney World – The future Hyperion Wharf is included in this video, as well as more of the Downtown Disney!

AMC will be opening it’s new Dine-in Theaters next month (also called Fork & Screen). Guests will be able to dine from the comfort of their own seats. Little Miss Matched has been closed to make way for the Harley Davidson shop (below, right), which will be moving from Pleasure Island.

I’m not sure how much longer the Pleasure Island sign will still be up, it’s nice to get photos of it when there (below, left). The Harley Davidson store is still open on Pleasure Island (below, right) while work starts on it’s new store.

The grassy area that used to be Motion and Rock & Roll Beach Club seems to have some work being done to it now (besides adding the grass) – including concrete being laid (below left and right)

The Lego Imagination Center is still undergoing it’s expansion (below left and right), adding a sizable amount of space to the store. It was supposed to be done in mid-April (which is now), but it still looks like it has a ways to go.

The temporary Lego store is still open during the expansion (below, left). Little Miss Matched (below, right) can be seen across the water. It should be open in just a few days!

There is a new store open now, taking the place of the Winnie the Pooh shop. Fun Finds (below, left) has assorted Disney merchandise, including a small amount of discounted items (at least right now). After all the talk about the “Friday” song by Rebecca Black, I laughed after seeing “Fun Fun Fun” on the wall (below, right).

Video #2 – Downtown Disney Future Hyperion Wharf Walking Tour (and More) 4/14/11 Walt Disney World – This video includes the new AMC Theater Fork and Screen entrance, the old location of Little Miss Matched – and the new location, which is close to open. Also the Lego store as it’s being rebuilt, Pleasure Island/Future Hyperion Wharf and more!
