I like the new colors, but it doesnt pop out as "Disney" to me, But hey, neither does a lot of the Disney springs additions either so it's the direction their going for.
It's not supposed to. It's supposed to look like an old Florida town that grew around springs which joins the many other Florida towns with "Springs" in its name.

I don't dislike it but (from the pictures at least) don't find it very interesting and a somewhat in-between design. Not sure if they wanted something that would blend in when it was airborne but still look whimsical when you saw it. You would think they'd try to do something that reflected the Disney Springs narrative.

Seriously though ... who authorized the use of 4 different colors of blue/teal? Call your art school and demand a refund.

I really like the colors, but I'd also have to see it in person. I also really liked the former color scheme and designs. Agreed that a name change is in order if they aren't going to have characters on the balloon. At this point I don't really think the characters "fit" so is there a chance of a name change?

Saw it today, it looks sharp. Of course, it will be faded all to hell by September. Sun and rain are not kind to fabric (umbrella on my lanai doesn't last a full Summer either).

The blue definitely seems like a nice change. True on the fading. I was there a few weeks ago and the fading was terrible so it seemed like good timing for a change out, but that's to be expected with our sun and weather. Blue may fare a tad better by not by much.

I like the new color scheme. Plus now there's a blue light on the bottom of the basket. Here are a few pics from Fri night 1/20/17. It wasn't' that windy on the ground, but, I sure would not have wanted to be up in the balloon then. It was listing quite a bit back and forth as they were reeling it back down.

I like the look...very nice - but it does seem to have an identity crisis considering the name of the attraction
I think much of the new addition suffers from the same identity crisis. I want to shop in a Disney-fied ambience. Once you enter the new section the music etc...is same-old "I could be anywhere" mall feel.
