They had set up fences and a construction station in the parking lot near the planet Hollywood side there were pictures on here a while back but nothing major has been done yet. I would expect them to start doing some major things come this summer or fall.

there gonna roll fast now that they have committed...they have to get this thing up before the stock market tanks again.

remember that the first six months or so of any disney project in orlando looks like absolutely nothing...its all water management, subsurface footers, and utility work...

but key to the project nonetheless.

A construction office trailer (mobile home) has been installed in the Q-Lot beyond House of Blues. It's for the people who currently work in the offices under the West End Plaza. The move should have already taken place but apparently disarray in plans has delayed the move until April 29th.

Other than that trailer being installed, there has been no visible construction at DTD related to the Disney Springs plans. But you might see some demolition walls up as early as next week.

Exactly I'm just saying your not going to notice anything major for a while yet other than walls and such
