  • Has varied shops, a huge Disney Store, if you want to buy something that has been forgotten in some Park, restaurants and even open-air performances. Recommend going at least once and parking is free and covered.

  • Good place to shop, dine, have a beer. Good day as night. Have a lego store, with fantastic creations made with lego. Including a huge dragon that is in the pond in front of the store. It has a really cool animal-themed bar that is inside the volcano which has a crocodile (very real) at the door. Nominate other

  • This used to be called Downtown Disney and has had a fabulous makeover We visited on a cold but sunny day so first went to the cinema. We then had a good walk round. The new shops are a great addition  more »

  • Fantastic place to go! There is no entry cost and it has the style of a Disney park. Come here to shop and for food and you won't be disappointed. This is a must try on one of your nights to Disney. I recommend you look at the restaurants and place a reservation as that is the hard part. Don't be afraid to try some new shops and take pictures to remember this as this place constantly evolves.
  • Definitely a more adult-oriented portion of Disney with ample shopping and restaurants yet it's still family friendly. There are some good bars and restaurants here but you definitely want to pick your location carefully as there are quite a few so-so generic tourist trap places. The shopping is good, if that's your thing. There are your dime a dozen shops (Sunglass Hut), some Disney oriented stores (not shocking, but they all sell the same stuff), and some more unique things that are a bit more rare. Overall the place has a pretty good vibe. Check out the hot air balloon ride.
  • Disney Springs is a great place to spend the day! If you want a break from one of the theme parks, come here!!! It's all Disney themed! A shopping paradise! They have a west side where there are more of the brand name stores and on the Marketplace side there are all Disney themed shops!!! World of Disney has just about anything you would want Disney!! There are several candy shops and restaurants for your dining pleasure! I recommend reservations for the restaurants. Be very careful as it can get very crowded at night. Someone actually rode over my foot with a scooter there & did not stop!! During the holidays, they are decorated wonderfully! They even have a Disney themed Christmas tree trail complete with falling "snow" to set the mood!!! A great place to shop! If you want to save some money, you can park here for free & take a Disney bus free to a resort hotel, then to one of the parks. It will take an hour out of your day but, worth saving the parking fee. Also a great way to see lots of the resort hotels!!
  • This is an outdoor, mostly upscale shopping area. Pretty much any day that you come here from noon on, it's going to be packed. You'll find a little bit of everything here, from clothes to Candy to Unique collectibles. There is also a wide variety of restaurants, from expensive sit-down places, to themed restaurants, to food trucks. Parking is free here. There are multiple parking garages, the spaces are reasonably wide, and there is an automated system to tell you how many spots are available on any given level when you enter the garage. Definitely worth a visit if you haven't already spent enough money at the house of mouse, and not a bad place to go shop for locals as well, just be prepared for the crowds, and don't expect too many bargains. Your kids may tire of of this place sooner than you do, so keep that in mind when coming here.
  • What can I say, this place & all places Disney are filled with fun & good times. I have been here when it was known as Downtown Disney (I like this name better) before it became Disney Springs. It has vastly improved over the years & there is so much to do here, if you are looking for shopping, dining & entertainment, this is the place to be. So many great restaurants to choose from, this is the area I love. The Lego store & all the other specialty shops here are just phenomenal. Another awesome thing is that there is a Star Wars store, yes I love Star Wars & this is a must for any Star Wars fan. Take the time & enjoy what Disney Springs has to offer.
