I love starting a Disney trip visiting Downtown Disney! Can get a lot of souvenirs here so you don't have to spend as much time shopping in the parks and can spend more time on rides. Restaurants here are fantastic! And the nightlife is getting good!

Accessable via free Disney Transportation from any of the Disney properties, Downtown Disney is a collection of eateries and shop with street musicians, lava-spewing volcanoes and fireworks thrown in for good measure. There are Disney themed gift shops and high end boutiques with clothes, jewelry, and accessories. There are fast food establishments and sit down dining including a House of... More

Lots to look at and shop. Has a nice feel. Highlight was the Lego store where my kids stocked up on enough lego to last a lifetime!

After all the mess you can start to see the new Downtown Disney. It's long overdue but it starting to be a new nighttime attraction with new restaurants and entertainment. The attmosphere is all Disney. Well done!

Downtown Disney is full of great restaurants and stores. It is currently under construction and will soon be Disney Springs. They are building several new shops and restaurants. Parking can be a little confusing but they do have employees directing traffic. If you visit earlier in the day the crowds aren't as bad and it is more enjoyable. Some of... More

Last day was spent here and it was a little pricey but hey if you wanted to save $ you probably shouldn't have gone to Disney lol parking is free and the little boat ride is nice. We ate at the dinosaur restaurant witch is fabulous and a must if you plan to visit downtown Disney.

Free parking, free admission, gives a taste of Disney. The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is an absolute must for a little girl. She will feel and look like a princess. The fairy god mothers throughout the store will even sprinkle fairy dust on adults. So cute and magical. We had fun watching and listening it live music throughout the island. All... More

My family and I loved going here while we spent time in the area. Our Resort offered free transportation and this came in quite handy. There are tons of restaurants, shops, and attractions to keep busy for hours. There also seemed to be live music around every corner, I highly recommend spending time here.

A great place to wander around when you're done with the theme parks. A shame there was boarding around Planet Hollywood. Watched the new Mission Impossible film at the dining AMC. I wish all cinemas were like this! Great experience. Was great to see downtown Disney all lit up when we came out of the cinema too.
