Downtown Disney officially becomes Disney Springs

Project includes new restaurants, shops

ORLANDO, Fla. – Disney held a ceremony Tuesday to mark the official name change of Downtown Disney to Disney Springs.

With the change came new additions to the destination.

Earlier this week, an Indiana Jones-themed bar, Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar, opened its doors.

The new Morimoto Asia restaurant opens Wednesday and will feature a menu designed by Iron Chef Mashaharu Morimoto.

The Disney Springs project is expected to be finished next year.

When it is complete, officials say it will be double the size of Downtown Disney.
