Concept art and details were released today about the new Hyperion Wharf, the name of the project formerly known as Pleasure Island in Disney World’s Downtown Disney, and they look pretty stunning.
While the plans are vague and don’t seem to include a central theme, yet, we do know that the 120-acre “waterfront complex” themed after an old-fashioned entertainment pier will include “diverse eateries, [which] will expand dining availability at Downtown Disney by more than 25 percent.”
A couple of the new dining options will take place somewhere you’d least expect them: the AMC Movie Theater! The Disney Parks Blog promises that the theater will add a “Concession Stand of the Future” along with “Florida’s first Fork & Screen Theater” (think Studio Movie Grill to get an idea of what this might be like).
Additionally, Save Pleasure Island has reported that Steve Schussler — the developer of Yak & Yeti, Rainforest Cafe, and T-Rex — has been called in again to create new dining concepts for Hyperion Wharf. Some rumors floating around include the story that a contract has been signed for a speedboat themed restaurant tentatively called Mahogany Bay to be built in Disney World.
