We come to Orlando often, and Downtown Disney is always on the list of places to go. This time, though, it is, literally, a maze of 10'-11' high wood boarding. Although painted and somewhat decorated, it is confusing to look at, and strange to make your way around because there is so little to visually stimulate your senses. The usual... More

The parking structure being built made it difficult to park and move around. Hopefully when they finish it will add to the beauty of this place.

Have always loved visiting Downtown Disney.... however our recent visit made us wonder if it was worth the visit as a lot of the site is under construction and lots of walking with nothing to see - not even the beautiful lake! However Rainforest Café is still open for business and Lego world and a huge Disney store which we... More

I have been coming here over the years with my family, and it's wonderful. RIght now, it is under construction, but remains open. Currently, there are bars, restaurants, and shops, and in the near future, there will be more of that, and there will be an area for food trucks. The best time to visit is at nighttime.

For August, it wasn't too crowded. The kids loved the Lego Factory store, Once Upon a toy, and of course, the Goofy Candy Co. For $2 my four year old rode the train ride. He got to splash in the splash area. Nice afternoon.

This is a great place to visit in the evening as it's something really fun to do without being as busy as a park. Any dinner reservations make sure you book in advance as it's really busy, waiting time can be up to an hour plus. The Disney shop and christmas shop are worth a visit, pretty magical! Parking is...

Downtown Disney had lots of entertainment attractions that you'd see in any town (movies, bowling, etc) with touristy restaurants and disney themed stores. It was cool, but the are in the process of a much needed renovation. it looked like the late 90's and the bars were just ok.
