  • 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 »

  • Very pleasant, not too crowded at all. Great shopping and food. Had lunch at Raglan's and it was even better than expected! I was able to finish off souvenir shopping for family back home - really helpful and meant less pressure to shop while at the actual theme parks. Between the Disney store, Star Wars store, Marvel store, and Disney Marketplace, there was a great variety of souvenirs available. My 3 year old enjoyed it, too - he loved the train ride and loved racing cars at the Lego Store. Really glad we chose a hotel within walking distance of Disney Springs. Next time, I'll budget more time to spend there for meals and drinks! Only criticism is the dinner we had at the T-Rex restaurant was not good - inedibly rubbery steaks!
  • A great place for entertainment, shopping and dining...but it amazes me that a company as consumer friendly as Disney could subject its guests to such a horrible traffic and parking experience. I realize that there is a lot of construction but they should have made provisions to continue to provide a great experience in spite of it. Will be a great experience when construction is done, but now it definitely is not! WE'LL, they finished the construction...the parking facilities are top notch as is the whole area. Disney is amazing!
  • The best FREE place you can explore in all of Orlando. Disney, and free?? Yes! This shopping outlet provides food, shopping, movies, concerts, shows and more! I will provide below a big mix of shops via pictures to give you an idea of what is currently there. Keep in mind it can change. This is also a very family friendly environment. Security all around along with cast members who are very friendly and sure to help you out. Place is kept clean as well, including the bathrooms. Also like most Disney properties trash cans are located every 30 ft away from each other. Street performers usually line the pathways providing entertainment along your journey. They also bring in a variety of dancers and singers from schools around the nation to perform. Always fun to watch. Parking is free and they have two huge parking garages to help accommodate this. Again, one of if not the best free place to go in Orlando. A must for any tourist in my opinion.
  • Love Disney Springs. Tons of great shops, restaurants, and bars. Coca-Cola store has Surge which I hadn't had since I was a kid. Boathouse has amazing food and nice outdoor seating. Morimoto is perfect for a quick bite at the bar, or large meals. Fantastic Sake selection, with good prices. New Star Wars Void attraction was mind blowing. We walked in not knowing what to expect, and walked out with our jaws dropped. Exceeded any expectations we had! The new shopping area is very nice, lots of good options.
  • It is one of the only places you can go to at Disney for free. It's basically a giant outside shopping mall with lots of restaurants. It is set up very nicely with large parking garages. It is just a lot of walking. It is laid out around a body of water and a pretend spring. Disney does a good job with the scenery making this a fun place. While you're there you can definitely spend a lot of money if that is your intent.
