The Motion Corridor. Envisioned as part of the doomed Hyperion Wharf plan for Pleasure Island, the idea was to build a pedestrian corridor behind Raglan Road and beside Portobello Yacht Club. This would allow guests to easily transfer between the two shopping halves of Downtown Disney.
|The space was being used for garbage and waste disposal which could easily be moved elsewhere. But that big brown building in the back stood in the way! Club Motion!|
|Which by the way held offices for Levy Restaurants too.|
|So Motion had to go! And beginning in December, 2010, down it went!|
|But the vacant spaces where Motion and Rock'n'Roll Beach Club once stood remained idle for years before the Disney Springs plan was launched. So the bleak Motion Corridor did not open until October, 2014, nearly 4 years later!|
|And today it carriers multitudes of happy guests between Marketplace and West Side, all of them oblivious to what once was.|
