Though Disney Springs has hit several big milestones over the past several months, with the Town Center district now open and several other projects finally completed, it was announced earlier this week that the shopping district is finally having a formal grand opening celebration, which unexpectedly kicked off just yesterday. Though this grand opening celebration announcement was a little unexpected, we've got the details on what guests who visit this shopping district in the coming weeks and months can expect.
1. Experience special entertainment, photo ops, and food offerings around the shopping district
It wouldn’t be a Disney celebration without some commemorative treats, and luckily both The Ganachery as well as Amorette’s will have some new, sweet treats on offer for the grand opening celebration. In addition, special PhotoPass photo ops will be set up around the shopping district so that guests can strike a pose to commemorate their visit to Disney Springs during this special occasion with a fun photo.
However, perhaps the most exciting part of this grand opening celebration will be a new, daily dance party happening at the shopping district. The brand new Beat the Heat DJ Party will take place every afternoon this summer around the Marketplace Fountain, and will give guests the opportunity to dance along to some familiar Disney and popular tunes for a few hours. Guests can also enjoy a variety of ice-cold, frosty beverages (with options for adults and kids) nearby for purchase during this daily event as well.
2. Grand opening discounts will be offered at select stores (for a limited time)
