We spent Thanksgiving day at this area, and enjoyed a delicious dinner at the Rainforest Cafe... there are many stores to visit, and the chance for many types of entertainment! there is no fee to park, and they offer a multi level parking structure!

Someone sucked the Disney soul out of Downtown Disney and threw down a high end outlet mall. Very few traces of Disney in this area any more. If you like shopping, this is the place for you. Some decent food options if you do some research. The boat shuttle to the other end is still there, and you are still... More

As usual Disney knows how to put on great exhibits and buildings. We walked around for a few hours up and down streets going into buildings. Went into Wolfgang Puck for some soup, very good soup. The Disney Stores were really expensive, so any parent taking their children here should have a good sized pocket book.

The idea of Disney Springs is nice but its just a little off. Its not quite a Disney experience and not enough shops to be a worthwhile shopping experience. They seem lost. They need to commit. Make it a Disney experience or a huge outdoor shopping experince. Right now it misses both marks.

Went last night for dinner and shopping for the first time since they redid the area and it is amazing! So many stores and restaurants were added and the atmosphere is lovely! Nice for having a night out and having fun! If your looking to have a fun date night or night out with friends Disney Springs seems to have... More

We went on an unseasonably hot and humid day punctuated by thunder showers. There is a plethora of eating places and yet more shops from which to purchase stuff with ears which might be amusing in Disney - but not at home. Don't waste a day when, if you are 'all parked out" you could be lazing by a pool... More

Lots of fun things to do with the family.. requires a lot of walking though. Lots of new shops and improvements. The classic shops are still there - Ghirardelli, Basin, Lego store, etc. Oh, and they have Sprinkles!! Really a good place to hang out and relax.

1) Good free destination that's just Disnefied enough to give you that happy feeling while optimizing retail sales for adults. 2) nice waterway views and understated retail signage (unlike Universal Walkway). 3) got rid of some kids rides (sad since kids are the overriding Disney theme), but maintains the Lego Store which is the epicentre of child play at Springs...

Disney has built an outside mall extravaganza adjacent to its Orlando Theme Parks. No fee to park or shop. Galata ice cream topped off an intertaing lunch at the Irish Pub. I had a salmon omelet and Harp. She had Fish &Chips. Both were great. Live riverdancers who brought children up on stage to try the dance we're a hit... More

Haven't been back to WDW in five years and this is nothing like I remembered old Downtown Disney .. .. Other than CIRQUE DU SOLEIL, Everything seems completely, and beautifully different!! From the brand-new PARKING GARAGES & dedicated BUS LANES, DISNEY SPRINGS is terrific .. .. GREAT SHOPS, ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME FOOD (Art Smith's) and just a heck of a lot to... More
