Fun to spend time in Downtown Disney because of the frequent free entertainment and lots of places to sit and just people-watch. You can snack non-stop, too, because anything you could want---from candied apples and kettle corn to sandwiches or full, sit-down meals---is available. My personal favorite is beignets and chicory coffee.

If you stay at the Disney hotels it's a great place to spend some evenings. There is free street entertainment every night and the kids love the sparkling lights.

So many different shops to explore and everything was lovely. There were many different items to look at and made the kid in me smile. The Beast reproduction in Legos was incredible. Plenty of people to see and shops to visit.

My issue with Downtown Disney is it was a Thursday night, every single restaurant we tried to go to had a ridiculous wait time of 30 to 45 minutes. Even the pizza place had the wait. We finally just stopped at the hot dog vendor and bought hot dogs and sat outside on a bench to eat them. They need... More

There are a couple of shops geared towards kids (Build-a-Bear and Ride Makerz, Lego Store and of course World of Disney) and a smattering of adult non-Disney apparel shops. There is a good variety of sit down restaurants, though selection is lacking on the lower end (Starbucks, limited menu at Ralph Brennan's, Earl of Sandwich and some at the Naples... More

What can I say - we got Teddy Bear clothes in Build-A-Bear, had a New Orleans dessert and sat and watched the world go by......

Great for grabbing breakfast on your way into the parks or extending your night with a night cap on your way back to your hotel.

Love all the shops and restaurants... However I think the restaurants are a little pricy... but the location & atmosphere is great!

Too busy, hard to get in anywhere so don't wait until you are really hungry cause its not that easy to get in anywhere anytime. Also VERY overpriced for what you get.
