Festival Bay needs more than just a renovation. Its never really found its identity, not sure whether to be a shopping district or entertainment district, and unlike similar Pointe Orlando, has never managed to get more than 2/3 of its units occupied. the lack of a dedicated food court gives it a somewhat disjointed feeling too.
whenever i've visited its always been eerily quiet, which is rather disquieting and doesn't inspire me to return (in fact, its only the vans shop that has ever found me going back)
I sometimes think it would be better to flatten Festival Bay and replace it with something more appealing - like the Orlando Thrill Park!
