Society of Explorers and Adventurers Wiki

Disney Springs is a shopping and entertainment centre in Walt Disney World. Disney Springs is themed to being a sleepy town in central Florida which is built around the titular water-bodies of Disney Springs.


Disney Springs was founded in the 1800s when a cattle rancher discovered the natural water-feature of Disney Springs.[1] The town was largely Spanish and grew around the springs in what would come to be Town Centre.[2]

Adventurers Club[]

Disney Springs replaced the area of Pleasure Island which held the Adventurers Club restaurant. There are many references to the Adventurers Club in Disney Springs as a result. Among the Lost and Found items within the club is a passport belonging to Samantha Sterling, a member of the Adventurers Club. Members of the Club can also be seen in a photograph taken on the bars opening night. The statue Babylonia from the club is within Jock's collection of artifacts.[3]. There is also a wooden carving depicting to sailors unloading the Empress Lilly in the Boathouse restaurant.[4]
