Disney Springs is a multipurpose entertainment area. Food, beverage, shopping and entertainment. There is something for everyone. If you have young children, do not miss Legos. It was a little confusing to get to with the multitude of Disney roads, but there is good signage. This complex is a combination of the original Buena Vista Marketplace of many years ago,... More

We spent 2 nights strolling through Disney Springs. My son listened to a live band that happened to be new from Disney called Hurricane. He played guitar in one of the shops. We sampled chocolate, watched a Disney artist draw out a character, had great food, music everywhere, a clean park with plenty of shops and places to eat in... More

So...this place is very popular. Popular means more crowds after a long day of waiting in lines. I personally don't like crowded shopping places so this is not for me. Not too much to do besides shop. Lots of restaurants but very long waits...like hours unless you have s reservation. Some good fast food options also. They did a good... More

Last time we visited Downtown Disney we really enjoyed ourselves. We definitely wanted to made sure we visited it again this year. When we arrived we were shocked to see the changes that had been made. They had many more places to eat and many more shopping experiences available. We went in and decided to make a day out of...

The first time I visited, I was 14 years old, getting ready to see my cousin's concert at The House of Blues. I have been back and forth since then..most recently during my time living here in Orlando. Things have changed travel friends!!! While the upgrades are beautiful, don't expect to see what you once remembered. Disney Springs is perfecting... More

We've gone through Downtown Disney many times over the years and was hesitant to support the major change over to Disney Springs. Visits the past couple years have been tough with the ever changing construction walls, parking constraints, and locations closing. With the Grand Opening going on right now, we wanted to see if the waiting paid off. Right away... More

The place is a mix of everything. Part Disney themed stores, part collection of international dining venues (Irish, sushi, American, etc) and part high end shopping mall. Depending on your interests you may focus on one and skip the other but overall I think it is well done. With kids, pass by the rainforest cafe' and see the volcano erupting,... More

Disney Springs is for people that can't afford to buy tickets to a Disney theme park. You won't find any characters walking around - there are no fun rides. You will find lots of Disney themed gift shops. Some prices are fair some are very expensive. They built two massive Starbucks! They have sculptures for your kids to pose next... More

Disney Springs is similar to CityWalk Orlando but is more catered to the entire family. We were able to experience awesome live performances and entertainment while admiring the beautiful scenery. There are lots to do and lots to see here. An overall great experience.

Great new look of the former downtown Disney area. Loads of places to dine and drink, and a great atmosphere to match. Looking forward to visiting again when we see La Nouba!
