PI Update: Latest Shopping Photos

New sign in Downtown Disney West Side still calls it Pleasure Island.  So it must be!
So let's cross the No. 4 Bridge and check it out!
At West End Plaza aka Celebration Plaza, this new construction that looks like an old time railroad depot is home to the Island's new bathroom center.  We suspect the new STK restaurant is hidden right behind it.
The bathrooms inside are very narrow, an indication that the rest of the building behind it will have another use!
Continuing east, Art of Shaving is in a newly constructed building built roughly where the old Curl by Sammy Duval (formerly Superstar Studios) building once stood.

Next down Hill Street is the Sanuk flip-flop store.  This is new construction that stands where the front section of 8TRAX once stood.
And you can see 8TRAX standing right behind it!
Next is the new 4-plex building that stands where the Apricot Lane / Orlando Harley Davidson / Changing Attitudes building stood.  There has been no announcement or permit yet on this westernmost spot in the building.  That iron gate on the far right goes into the service corridor and directly to what was one time Mannequins' smokers patio.
Coming down the hill, we have newly opened Sound Lion and Apex by Sunglass Hut.
The fourth tenant in the building, located right at The Hub, will be Erwin Pearl Jewelry.  Their build-out permit was just recently filed with Orange County so it won't be long.
No permits, no rumors on this new building directly across from the new outdoor amphitheater at Waterview Park.

The so-called Motion Corridor is the narrow opening that previously was the service court for Raglan Road and Portobello Yacht Club.  It's now home to 3 retail establishments, two on the left and one on the right.
On the right we have the new Havainnas flip flop store.
On the left, Chapel Hats.
And gluten-free baked goods from Erin McKenna's Bakery NYC.  Come on out to beautiful Pleasure Island and see this all for yourself!
