In the previous part of this update, we checked out the West Side (including the new elevated "tracks" and more), the parking garage, and some areas of Pleasure Island. Now we will continue to take a look at the construction being done in The Landing (Pleasure Island). Afterwards, we will check out the Marketplace:
The Marketplace Causeway continues to take shape:
The theming is also taking shape:
The new fountain:
It looks like the pirate hat was permanently removed from Stitch:
More sights around the Marketplace:

Anyone know if Disney Springs will allow adults to walk around with a beer in their hands?
At the risk of turning this into a Universal Studios vs Disney debate (which is certainly not my intent as I enjoy both parks tremendously), the one thing that Disney has than any other park in the world is space. It will be tough to not compare Disney Springs against Universal City Walk, even though they have a slightly different target audience. Disney Springs will have far more shopping. Universal City Walk seems to be targeting young adults who want to party. But regardless, the scope and scale of Disney Springs is amazing, and so far it looks like it will be a beautiful addition and enhancement to what had been basically an outdated outdoor mall.
Doesn't Downtown Disney allow you to walk around with alcohol? There are outdoor kiosks that sell alcohol. I doubt that would change.
