    There are a handful that always seem empty.

    I noticed that as well. But Steve says most/all seem to be doing just fine. Probably with the prices in some they don't need to have a lot of sales. I guess looks can also be deceiving? LOL. I was surprised when he posted that as I had posted before I noticed a lot were empty but it's not like I'm standing there keeping track of them either.

    True but we also have no idea what rent is....if rent isn't really that much more than a nice mall like say milenia than for sure they are making money. But if there's a high mickey tax those lower volume stores may not be doing as well. The raw foot traffic this place will have 365 makes total failure hard in my opinion.
    I bet sales year round are much more stable that the seasonal sales malls are built on.

    I've actually noticed STK drawing much larger crowds of late now that they've been opening the retractable door at the front of the restaurant, allowing passerby's to see in that it's a restaurant.

    That is a great store. They have Disney t-shirts at non-Disney prices. Everybody should shop there rather than World of Disney for Disney clothing. And if you live where it ever gets cold, their HeatTech stuff is magical.

    Ugh, not this again. We've spent years debating whether or not stores will be/are successful at Disney Springs. Some don't play the market right, and some just are a bad fit or are in a poor location. Lots of stores are a departure from a typical layout/setup that chains are used to dealing with so there are some growing pains. Stores will come and go, but there isn't going to be boarded up storefronts at Disney Springs in the foreseeable future. For most of the Disney Springs locations, they're the most trafficked and profitable properties in their chain.

    As others have said: SHOUT OUT TO UNIQLO for the Disney shirts. Awesome stuff, awesome pricing.

    I'm picking up a large Disney shirt order at Uniqlo this weekend in fact.

    it would still be a few years off after the 3rd garage is completed, so by that time a 4th one would probably be needed

    and it could enable expanding the west side into part of that area, would be great to put aspects of the hyperian warf there and make a "new pleasure island" geared to adult entertainment

    LNM makes more sense for a garge than opq as it could be connected to the direct i-4 ramp

    that would be super expensive and not needed

    what are those trailers behind cirque? tons of expansion potential,

    would love to see the hyperion warf project come to the opq lots, a better fit for it than the old pleasure island.

    would be nice to see some more entertainment type options, clubs, shows, etc instead of just expensive restaurants like they built at the landing

    and couldnt hurt to hit some other price points as far as attracting customers, though dont know where the heck people get there money from since the rest of this crazy project seems to be doing well despite many of the new offerings being pricy pricing out the middle class

    by this logic, whats the "major draw" to get people to go to the east of the marketplace down over by rainforest? that area seems to be doing just fine, even without the addition of new stores that were suppose to replace the bus stop

    anyone know what there doing with the old marketplace bus stop? is it being used for anything after this winters christmas tree event?

    As long as you aren't looking for McDonalds prices there actually is quite a range. At the bottom is Blaze Pizza, Earl of Sandwich,Cookes of Dublin, Wolfgang Express, D-Luxe burgers.
    Then lower cost table service such as Polite Pig, Art Smith Homecoming, Fronterra Cocina and existing places such as Wolfgang Puck Cafe, Bongos, Raglan Road, Paradiso 37, House of Blues, Planet Hollywood.
    Yes several of the newer offerings are high end (Morimoto, STK, Pasdlefish) but there is still a large number of moderate offerings including old and new names. The major quick service additions have all been kiosks though with BB Wolfs, Poutine and the Food Trucks.

    Could just be that the Marketplace has been around for forty years and people are just generally familiar with it. But hasn't there been some talk that the Martketplace stores have seen a drop in traffic since the Town Center opened? So maybe those locations aren't doing as hot as they used to and could maybe use some kind of anchor back there.
