    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 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

    Where is City Walk? Is it part of Disney?

    City Walk is at Universal. You can read about it's history and connection with the West Side and subsequent fall of Pleasure Island here
