Took the family up in the hot air balloon on Easter Sunday. The winds were acting up so we were limited to 12 people per trip. I didn't mind the longer wait time because my family was able to have the balloon to themselves; and they were able to move around once we were all the way up. The view... More

Disney World's shopping and dining area consists of Marketplace, Pleasure Island and West Side. I stole that from the desciption. Here is where you go to eat and spend lots and lots of money with screaming, tired kids. Need I say more? Got to have a fake town to go with all the other fake stuff. Eat at the tacky... More

Downtown Disney is definitely worth a visit, but beware that there is a lot if construction happening, which adds to the congestion. Plenty of options to eat, drink and shop. Don't miss the shows on the Waterfront stage - kids come from all over the US and the world to perform as part of the Disney entertainers program.

I take everyone here that comes to visit! Be sure to stop by Ghirardelli's Chocolate for a free piece of chocolate. The parking is kinda of a pain, but where is it not a pain in Orlando. Restaurants do have a waiting list, so if you really want Rainforest Cafe or Wolfgang's call ahead if you can. I love Earle... More

So not only does the parking suck the traffic getting in and out is horrible. They do the best they can but they have significantly over built the area. Then to top it off they have added these food trucks that are very loud making it impossible to to have a conversation on the walkway behind them. I took the... More

I have some advice if you want to go to WDW and DTD. 1. Must have early booking some restaurants for dinner If you want to have nice dinner at restaurants in DTD, you must book the table beforehand. Somehow, in all of Disney parks, there are no good restaurants, just only for selling some snacks, burgers, pizzas, so we... More

This is a great place to go if you happen to pass it. It is a good taste of Disney if you don't want to pay the park admission. There are lots of shops and restaurants plus a lot of live outdoor music. It is very entertaining. It has a lot of variety and brings a lot of enjoyment. It... More

Downtown Disney is a shopping and food area that has its positives and negatives. I visited it twice and took the bus from a Disney resort and the bus system worked well (wait times were decent). There are two bus drop off spots, which I think can be confusing. There is construction (for a new parking structure) so the "middle"... More

This is a great place to go if you can't afford the Disney parks or simply don't plan to go. There is no admission or parking charge. There are many shops, restaurants and musicians performing outside. It is a great place to walk around and take in the sights. We went twice during our visit to Florida, once at night... More
