The Centertown Market area will include a quick service dining location that will have an “indoor street market vibe.”  There will also be a variety of Grab n’ Go items as well as specialty coffees and other necessities.

Shutters, a table service dining location, will reside at Old Port Royale on the waterfront side.  Guests will get the vibe of enjoying dining within the tropical islands. The location is expected to be open and airy with island decor items.  It will encompass the natural beauty that you would find in the Caribbean.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
