If you like to tour the shops and merchants in the places you visit you won't be disappointed at Downtown Disney. Parking was free across from the main entrance way. A lot of renovations and construction is being done on new segments of the area but nothing to hinder your enjoyment. Lots of shops dedicated to trinket and toy collecting.... More

Great jazz player and other entertainers of the street vibe variety. A nice place to wander about on a nice summer evening in Florida. No Disney ticket is needed to wander and I saw a lot of people enjoying the boats and other transportation about. Nice location with various food options and entertainment.

There are restaurant, shops and more shops! Now with a fairly new parking garage - parking was a breeze! There is a lot of construction going on - but still an enjoyable way to spend a few hours without spending a lot of money ;)

Wow! Old Scholl Game twisted with New School Games and it was great for adults and children. We want twice while we were in Orlando and had a great time. The living was a nice touch to Downtown Disney. The pretzels at Wetzels Pretzels were fresh, hot, and delicious. Downtown Disney is a must see!

There are many nice stores here along with good dining choices. It is just too crowded and not enough space to spread out the crowd. The regular stores made it feel less Disney-esc. You can definitely get some nice items but it is just too uncomfortable. Along with that the bus system was so messed up we waited a half... More

There's lots to see and do here, all of which you can read about in other reviews, and websites. They are downplaying the construction. IT'S HORRIBLE. There is half the parking there was before, and it was bad BEFORE the construction started. You have to walk around everything, and there's a good chance that where you're going will be closed....

It was a fun change of pace from the parks and you can shop to your hearts content. There are many restaurants to choose from and activities to choose from.

Leave it to Disney to have a high-tech, state of the art parking deck! Parking has always been a nightmare at Downtown Disney until now. Their new parking deck is efficient and easy to navigate. There are electronic signs showing the number of available parking spaces on each level and on each row! It makes parking quick and easy so... More

Still a great place to spend some time and although there is a lot of work being done - good fun and lots to see. A lot of changes in the last couple of years and the Amphicars are a great addition. Lego shop is still an excellent experience for young & old. The two main restaurants T-Rex & Rainforest... More

We just stopped at DD while passing through to get to the Keys. We had planned on getting lunch, but ended up just eating snacks and candy :) It's wonderful, of course, but the are doing some construction. Most of the restaurants and shops were open. Easily and fast way to get your kids their Disney fix!
