There's an array of shops in Downtown Disney, and not just the obvious Disney ones either. Lots to see, to while away a couple of hours, and many good food outlets too. Great place to order your souvenirs!

For people that need a break from the parks, downtown Disney offers a little bit of a break from the madness. There are a lot of places for you to eat and rest before going back, including two Starbucks.
