OK, so it's an odd choice for an opening day, but the long-awaited (or should it be, long-delayed?) The Edison entertainment/dining complex at Disney Springs is finally due to open, and on January 1 (2018, before anyone makes a wisecrack).



Here's what News 13 have just announced:

The Edison, the 1920s, dark-industrial-themed restaurant coming to Disney Springs whose opening has been pushed back several times, now has an opening date.

It was originally scheduled to open in 2016, but has undergone several delays.

The Edison, based on an existing location in Los Angeles, is "inspired by a Jazz Age-era electric company building" with 35-foot-high ceilings. The menu features classic American food and drinks, and the live entertainment will include contortionists, palm readers, cabaret performers and DJs.
