A check in on Starbucks in Downtown Disney. It is moving along. The signs say a winter opening, no idea what that translates into.

The Finding Nemo subs go down for renovation next week for most of 2014. Or if some internet rumors are to be believed maybe forever?

The Flower Market on Center Street has been reduced to just this archway.
