Walt Disney World resorts

Downtown Disney is an outdoor shopping, dining, and entertainment area located at the Walt Disney World Resort. Until 1989, only the Marketplace existed and was known as the Disney Village Marketplace, and before that, the Lake Buena Vista Shopping Village. Pleasure Island then opened, and the West Side followed in 1997. Pleasure Island and Marketplace were referred to together as Disney Village until West Side opened, at which point the entire area was collectively renamed Downtown Disney. There are 32 Resorts located on the Walt Disney World Property. ... Cinderella Castle is the symbol of the Magic Kingdom. ...


The Marketplace and West Side have always been free to enter, while Pleasure Island required the purchase of admission. Pleasure Island was also closed during the day.

History

The Empress Lilly is a 220 by 62 foot static replica Paddle steamer riverboat on Village Lake in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. In reality, the Lilly couldn't go anywhere. She was not a boat at all, but a large boat-shaped building, erected on the edge of the lake. A submerged concrete foundation gave the Lilly the stability to weather a hurricane. Built for the Walt Disney World Resort in 1976, the ship contained three restaurants and a jazz lounge. She greeted guests for the first time on May 1, 1977, when Lillian Disney, Walt Disney's widow for whom the ship is named, christened the ship. The Lilly was designed by Walt Disney Imagineering to be as true to the eye as possible. The gingerbread scrollwork and stained glass detailing gave the ship an authentic feeling, harkening back to the days of Mark Twain's Mississippi River. The paddle-wheel at the aft end of the ship churned constantly, though the ship never went anywhere. The Empress Lilly was one of the first locations of the now famous Disney Character Breakfast. A paddle steamer, paddleboat, or paddlewheeler is a ship or boat propelled by one or more paddle wheels driven by a steam engine. ...

In the mid 1990s, Disney began finding outside management to take over many of its restaurants. As a cost cutting move, it was decided that the Empress Lilly would come under new management. Levy Restaurants signed a contract to operate the ship for 20 years. On April 22, 1995, the Empress Lilly served her last meals. The restaurant was closed, all interiors were ripped out, and a new décor, for a single restaurant (not three) was put in place. In addition, the old smoke stacks and paddlewheel, which gave the Lilly some added authenticity, were removed due to rust and rot. They were not replaced.
