Disney Springs tenant watch

I think the people who are at a Disney Springs during the daytime will still want a quick lunch option and the loss of the Pollo Camparo / McDonalds Outlet means that the marketplace area is still lacking in options.
Bongo's express, Earl of Sandwich, or Wolfgang Puck Express all have superior food options to Pollo Comparo and MC D's. While not as quick as the traditional fast food joints, they still have your food within a few minutes.

Yep and I would also throw Cookes of Dublin into that list.
Agreed, but not everyone is looking for "superior food options". While McDonald's (or similar) would not be an appropriate choice for Disney Springs, there remains a place for a burger/fry/chicken strips place in the vein of the old Lite Bite or Goofy's Grill.

There will be a burger place, but I believe it will be table service.

I was just wondering if anyone knows what entertainment options will be coming to the new areas? I have not gone back and read every page here, sorry if its already been explained. The west side still has a good amount of entertainment with Crque, Quest, AMC, Splitsville. but we lost some when Pleasure Island closed. Just wondering if anything new besides eating and shopping is coming?

My mom still misses the McD's. Grabbing a coffee and an ice cream to eat while walking through DTD was always one of her favorite activities. There were always higher end options, but $3 at McD's was her choice.

I'd like to know this as well. The problem with restaurants is that you can really only do one of them a night, but entertainment options combine much more easily — A movie at AMC and a round of bowling at Splitsville, that kind of thing.

Hmm.

I live in an area with a pretty significant burger place presence. And none of them are table service. I am racking my brain trying to think of a burger place that is.

Steak and Shake - Counter service
Shake shack - CS
Smash burger - CS
Bobby's Burger Palace - CS
5 guys - CS

There is a place called Boom Burger that's table service, but it's really more of a bar then a burger joint. Is that what they are going for?

Red Robin is one. It could still change of course, but there is certainly an opportunity for a very successful table service burger restaurant.

sorry I didn't see til now that there is a place to discuss entertainment at the new Springs. If anyone does know of any entertainment that is coming hopefully you can share that with us.

Sort of like people might hop from an 80s bar to a comedy improv bar to a place with a live band.

But you're right, the only way someone does Morimoto, Boathouse and Raglan in one night is if they wander into one for drinks after dinner.

I really hope we do get a stand-up or Improv comedy venue. I never really did the night clubs at Pleasure Island but had two great times at Comedy Warehouse. I think they do need a couple of bars you can just walk into even if those bars don't have entertainment, plus an entertainment driven venue such as a comedy club or a bar with a live band (similar to Raglan Road but less emphasis on food.

I think The Hangar will be a bar you can just walk into and The Boathouse will have a bar areas separate from the restaurant.

I've seen news popping up in a few other articles around the interwebz about the Raglan Road's parent company opening a new place in Disney Springs. Has this already been talked about in previous posts/threads and I've just not made the connection?

Yes I found a permit about this....

"There was a permit filed today for "New Construction of a single story Restaurant" and the owner of the project is "Great Irish Pubs of Florida, Inc" which is the company that owns Raglan Road. The location is listed as C-07 which is not on my map, so I am thinking I might have mis-labeled one of the locations around Raglan."

Correct, Raglan's owners are doing another restaurant, which has been reported. There is more to come, serving multiple segments, and I would place bets that includes quick serve.
