This weekend I will be coming to Orlando and staying at Buena Vista Palace. I understand that it's near Downtown Disney. My girlfriend and I (late 20s) would like to spend Saturday walking around, shopping, eating, and then going out for drinks at Downtown Disney, probably Pleasure Island.
Is there a dress code anywhere? Could I wear sandals into these bars/restaurants/clubs? Does she have to wear "club" attire. We want to remain casual/comfortable. Any advice? Also, should we spend the day walking around and shopping, then head back to the hotel to change before dinner and a night of drinking? or is it not convenient to travel there between hotel and DTD?
