ANAHEIM, Calif., Friday, May 5, 2017: Regular Downtown Disney District guests – and probably some who have never been in the District before – are noticing a sensational transformation. Along with recently opened new shops – PANDORA, Curl Surf, a second Starbucks location – the face of Downtown Disney District is being refreshed with bursts of color throughout its pots and planters.
Guests who take a closer look will see area-specific layouts with the height and color of plants varying, for example, from the ground-level flowers in planters near World of Disney and Naples Ristorante e Pizzeria to the higher-profile plantings around The LEGO Store and Tortilla Jo’s. In fact, since both Naples Ristorante e Pizzeria and Tortilla Jo’s have added additional outdoor seating, their respective new seating areas are enhanced with new pots and fresh, colorful plants. More than 8,000 new plants have been added to the Downtown Disney District. (Scott Brinegar/Disneyland Resort)
