Looking ahead to Hyperion Wharf

Back in November, happy news was announced that what was once Pleasure Island will become Hyperion Wharf. It's named as such after both the Greek god of light, and the street where Walt Disney had his first animation studio.

Set to open in 2013, the 120-acre Hyperion Wharf will be an area of shops, restaurants and entertainment open both during the day and at night. At night, Hyperion Wharf will transform, emitting thousands of lights from trees, water features and structures.

Full details aren't yet available, but Disney Food Blog has a scoop -- the developer of Yak and Yeti, Rainforest Cafe and T-Rex has been brought in, and there are many rumors surrounding a restaurant concept called Mahogany Bay.

Check out the Hyperion Wharf announcement and concept art from the official Disney Parks blog.
