As Downtown Disney West Side transitions into Disney Springs, it’s gotten a bit of theming that has changed its aesthetic. The repurposed abandoned railway high line that has been added to West Side is supposed to evoke Florida’s historic roots. For me, born and raised in Florida, it reminds me much more of New York and Chicago and other locations where abandoned high lines have been turned into green spaces. Many of which you are able to walk on and enjoy the view from the garden above. This was part of the original concept art for Disney Springs West Side. But as Food Truck park became Exposition park it appears that Disney became nervous about giving guests access to a second story structure where they’d overlook other guests at Disney Springs. That design was pulled and so at least thus far the railway’s only uses are to change the overall look of West Side, provide shade and cover from Florida’s harshest weather and add some bench seating. Despite this scaling back, it is a dominant feature now at West Side. So love it or even if you don’t, I thought it was a good time to show you the extent of the high line by giving you a bit of a walking photo-tour from end to end of Disney Springs West Side. Enjoy!
