They have put the Hyperion Wharf project on hold at the moment and shifted their focus on converting the old Virgin store at the West Side to Splitsville -a massive bowling and eating complex.

The whole Hyperion Wharf plan was scrapped over a year ago. However, just a couple of weeks ago, there were rumblings/rumors that an announcement about the new direction of DTD was almost imminent There's been no announcement yet, so we'll see.

I think DTD needs a good overhaul.

I agree, Ialthough I enjoy going to the Marketplace and West Side is ok at best, I wish they would make up their mind about Pleasure Island soon as its like an abandoned building site. CityWalk is beating them big time!

Ya I totally agree city walk has absolutely no competition at the time dtd needs a nice rehab Disney has plenty of room on the dtd property to do great things but it's whether Disney decides to do something with dtd or not
