There are a lot of improvements being made, which makes the place a bit messy. There are some good attractions and shopping (although very expensive, compared to the malls). This is the place to buy things you cannot get anywhere else. We went to specifically visit the Arribas Bros shop, as we collect their products. I am not a fan... More

iv been out to America 3 times now and went to downtown Disney at least 5 times each visit and oh gosh I love it. I commonly go to the odd socks place, build your own remote control car and the Disney shop. oh and for a cheeky Starbucks on the way. recommend a visit.

Wonderful spot even with all of the construction taking place. Wear comfy shoes to thoroughly enjoy the experience. Parking can be a bit of a walk. All the employees are so friendly and helpful.

I had expected Downtown Disney to have some disney experience and maybe a disney character or two prancing around saying hi to the children. Instead this was a collection of pricey brand stores and restaurants. We would have sat down for dinner if it wasn't so crowded with people so we left and had dinner elsewhere. I did not find...

But now they do have lots of parking with the new 5 level garage and it has those little signs that tell you how many spaces are available and where...so it made parking a little... More

It took us 57 min to get there when normally it would have been 15. They have poor traffic management such as why are we... More

We went here two nights during our week-long trip to Orlando. The board-walk was under construction but there were still tons of places to eat, several good street performers, and fun things to look at. I recommend walking through here at least once. The parking was free although traffic leading to the parking deck was terrible!

It was a great place to visit but getting there was horrible. With all of the traffic and construction it made for a very negative experience with my family. It was just too much and it took away from what could have been a great day and great family outing. Having more fun at home

Yikes!!! The traffic was horrible, and parking was worse! Until the construction is over, I'd stay away from this place.
