Many shops and restaurants available. That being said very pricey. A corn dog for $8.50. That price was typical. Better price off site.

A good number of shops and eateries, but I was kind of shocked at how small it is in comparison with Downtown Disney Orlando

Not Florida. It's small and you can walk it in about 40mins. But stopping in all the shops you'll be there for a while. It was the perfect size for us. And of course it's always good when food is all around. Next time we...More

Starbucks opens at 7am so you can have a little relax before the long day starts. In general the precinct is very enjoyable with lots of eateries and a giant Disney merchandise store. I really enjoyed my time just wandering along.

Downtown Disney and Boardwalk (2 Replies)
We don't have time for any WDW or Universal theme park, but do have about 5 hours to spare on our way from Tampa to Kennedy Space Center. So I'm looking for some smaller low cost attractions. Downtown Disney and Disney's Broadwalk look like pretty places to have a walk, and with shops and eateries. Is there a parking lot we can use without stay in any of the resort and without visiting any theme park?

I would suggest Downtown Disney, more shops, entertainment and Dining Options there Parking is Free The Boardwalk is Lovely but smaller, less to enjoy. You can Park for free for 3 hours at the Boardwalk Inn

we stayed at the Royal Plaza in june but because it was so hot it was that bit too far to walk so this may we're staying at the Hilton. Also you get the extra disney hours at the Hilton

Typhoon Lagoon and Downtown Disney and Seaworld (6 Replies)
Hi Only coming to Orlando for 7 days at end May 2010. They only things we did not do last time were Typhoon Lagoon, Seaworld and Downtown Disney. Do you have to have a ticket to get in to Downtown Disney ie pay and also can you just pay at the gate for Typhoon Lagoon and Seaworld and does anyone know how much a ticket would be. Thanks very much Christine

Response fromFlorida_Wizz_Kid|
yeah downtown disney is free to access. and you will be able to get a ticket at the gate. typhoon lagoon is about $45 for an adult one day ticket. and seaworld is $75 i think.
