  • We LOVED walking through Disney Springs. We went to the parks and had a great time but this was my favorite place to visit. We originally came to eat at Planet Hollywood but stayed for everything else...  more »
  • We went down to disney springs for dinner. Normally we would've taken the boat from port orleans, but I had to make sure I got back to the hotel room for an interview. The parking was very convenient,...  more »
  • This place is simply a temptation ... has the best shopping and the best restaurant, all in one place! But it's so big that you can't know everything in a single day! You can't miss the World of Disney Store, incredible!

  • Love this place. Especially after the refurbishment. The live music everywhere is great. Just come over to the stage by the Boathouse, get a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy the live music. La Calle band is really good. Plenty of stores to visit that range from average price to the high end designer ones. There is something for everyone here.
  • Love what they've done with the place. Parking is so easy now, parking garage even tells you how many spots are open in the garage, in a lane, And which one is open! Very easy to navigate on foot and tons of new shops!! Very very Disney hospitality at every turn. Plan a full day, you'll need it with so much to see, buy, and eat! Plus they have a gluten free baked goods store now to!
  • Disney Springs, formally Downtown Disney, is a great improvement to the old location. Many of the old favorites have remained, but new stores and restaurants have been added. The best part in my opinion, is the addition of new (and smart!) parking garages. For those who remember, the old parking was only a surface lot which made for a good walk until you could get to anything. These new garages actually tell you how many spots are available, what floor, and even where they are. Most of the park is new construction and is similar to the high-end retail outlets seen along I-4. There are all types of stores: from typical clothing outlets, to smaller local companies and even the LEGO Store, there's something for everyone no matter their age. One of their newer restaurants, The Boathouse, features the ability to ride a restored amphibian car from dry land directly into the adjoining lake. If you're in the area, I'd recommend stopping by. Granted, it is no theme park, but if you're looking to do something different, hang out with friends, or just shop around, this is for you. Plus parking is free!
  • There's so much to do here. Parking is free but it's packed in the evenings, so I'd recommend going earlier in the day. It's laid out in a linear fashion so you'll walk a lot. Can't wait to go back because we didn't get to see it all this trip.
  • Disney Springs is a gem. With the new upgrades (formerly Downtown Disney) it is absolutely the place to be on the weekends. There are new restaurants, no less than 3/4 live bands/musicians all around the location and lots of fun things to do. Whether you are going for a House of Blues concert or just to walk around, this place is awesome. It's extremely family friendly and there is something for everyone. Check out the lego store, get yourself a Ghirardelli brownie sundae, and just enjoy the entertainment. Fin.
