Disney village


#1

i was on the phone with a friend last night talking about WDW and he mentioned something called disney village that’s outside the property. but from the sounds of it, he’s talking about DTD and though i told him plenty of times there is no disney village, it’s DTD, he insisted there’s a disney village. is there?


#2

Could he be talking about Celebrations, the small residential area on the south end of the property?


#3

Disney village in Disneyland Paris???


#4

DTD was formerly known as Disney Village Marketplace, but people (I still do) called it Disney Village.


#5

You’re right, years ago DtD used to be called Disney Village.


#6

The knowledge I gain from you guys, never ceases to amaze me. Thank you to all…so much.


#7

My mother in law still calls it (dtd) Disney Village too!!!

Disney Village Trivia: Chef Mickey’s used to be at the Disney Village. It was first called the Village Restaurant and then called Chef Mickey’s.

Today? Rainforest Cafe!

He’s probably talking about Celebrations. It’s a little village sort of, but it’s not a place where you can go & shop, etc… We drove through this little “village” and now my husband & kids want to move there. It’s a village that has their own school, shops, etc…The houses are very old town village like. Colorful and gorgeous. Sort of like our street here in Massachusetts. You buy a house in celebration and sort of live within this little village area. The houses are pretty expensive.

DTD -Yes, a friend of mine won’t stop calling it Disney Village.

You’re so awesome! :laugh:


#13

OH and my Mom still calls it Disney Village, too!


#14

thanks for clearing this up guys. i knew he was talking about DTD and though i told him that it was DTD, he insisted that it was this disney village and it’s not on the property but you can shop and dine there. he even mentioned a restaurant that has a boat on a body of water, which i know is DTD so that convinced me he’s talking about DTD. thanks again guys!!


#15

Yes we are guilty too of calling it Disney Village or the Market place!! I have some photos somewhere of it under construction I must find them out.


#16

Wow really? We all used to call it Lil Lake Buena Vista. :huh: Shows what I know…

My Mimi always said “Byoona Vista”". :laugh:


#17

I heard its a village were you can live and / or retire the. Any truth.


#18

Disney Village, now that is a tidbit of knowledge I never knew!

That’s prolly Celebration, which is definitely NOT Downtown Disney, formerly Disney Village.
