Ok, but someone like you will clearly never qualify Disney Springs as a hit then if you don't see the amount of people there now as opposed to before. If they had built the entire new section and all of the stores did poorly and were already closing, then everyone would say it's a flop.The argument was Disney Springs is a hit. The same amount of traffic is at millenia. So you can't call Disney Springs a hit.
So please explain, what makes this not a hit to you? Sure, they didn't reinvent the wheel, but there are some cool things here like The Edison & The VOID. The Greg McCullough(?) art gallery is also a very cool Art of Disney location.
