Today they are supposed to make the official announcement on the DD plans.

They will tell you whats coming, but "we cannot disclose the project name". Seems sort of backwards to me...who cares about a project name when they are spilling the beans what is going in there. LOL.

I thought this was very funny also! I use to work for a very large well known software giant. They would spend hours in meetings coming up with a project name of the next version of their operating system. Who cares lol... Just make it work is all people care about! People don't even know the project name anyway because after naming it a famous ski resort for example they rename it when released...confused lol.

WDWMagic.com is reporting that CM's have been given an overview of the new DTD, to be renamed Disney Springs.

For what it's worth, where I live, you pay to park everywhere - even shopping malls and the such. Just a fact of life here...

I also don't care much for DTD, so this announcement is no biggie to me.

maybe the project name is something dirty or some innuendo about what disney springs is going to do to your wallet.

I've been to Trader Sam's in DL, it is basically just the Adventurers Club with a Polynesian theme and without the actors. There were even Adventurers Club props there (some of them were replicas).

It was fun and I wouldn't object to its presence but the Ad Club was better.

The fact they would be putting in something fairly similar to the AC, is probably the final nail in the coffin of anyone's hopes that it would return (not that there was much hope to begin with).

That said, it would still seem to be a step in the right direction.


ETA: Is Trader Sam's Disney owned/operated? Or is it a 3rd part establishment?

Great! The parking is awful. Just hope they keep Earl of Sandwich and RainForest Cafe! I love them!

As with anything to do with Downtown Disney, I won't believe it until they actually start constructing stuff.

I'm not sure why. It's essentially a nice outdoor shopping area.
