We haven't visited for two years and we previously enjoyed Downtown Disney so were expecting an improved location. Not to be. It's still not finished and to be honest we didn't really enjoy our visit. Certainly not like previous times. We'll be giving it a miss for a few more years.

As we live in Orlando, we wanted a day out and not spend too much money. A day at Disney Springs did that. There are a lot of shops to look through, and a lot of places to sit and people watch. They also have water boats to take you from the west side to the market place. All in... More

I am a regular guest at WDW. After hearing about all the progress at Disney Springs and the surrounding area, I decided to make a visit on a Saturday evening. What a mistake! By 8 p.m. the crowds were massive, packing the walkways and shops. I didn't expect to be able to do much, but with the crowd levels, it... More

We stayed close to Disney Springs and ended up walking over on a Monday evening. The DJ was AWESOME hosting a lip sync contest that was so entertaining we stayed for hours! Shopping and restaurants are close and just as nice. If your staying near by I suggest you take your family over and spend the evening! Plus you don't... More

My husband and I decided to drive an hour from home to visit the new Disney Springs. They are still adding on and there is a lot of construction going on, but it does not interfere with your shopping pleasures. The parking garage is easy access and free. Walking around is easy and the shops and restaurants are fun to... More

Unlike any of the other Disney attractions, Disney Springs does not have an admission fee, nor does it have any rides. It's a great place to go for a stroll, there are plenty of things to see and do there. Had a great meal out splitsville and took in the cirque du soleil show.

If you plan on eating at a sitdown place have a reservation. Walk ins can have over 90 min wait. Daytime is always less busy then evenings. I do enjoy the evenings more though.The new parking lot stretches from Splittsville to the where planet hollywood used to be, it's huge. Chwck the electricsl board to see which level has open...

Downtown Disney, now called Disney Springs, offers all kinds of entertainment opportunities in the 21st century's spirit. Your pleasant experience starts with the perfectly organized parking; however, the first-time visitors may be confused when driving and looking for Downtown Disney - all the signs are completely new and say Disney Springs. We look forward renovated Fulton's crab house!

We spent a day of our trip at Disney Springs wandering through shops, catching a movie, getting dinner, etc. Nice way to spend a day. Parking is free and very convenient. Disney Springs is laid out in a nice way to be able to wander and not have to backtrack, get in horrible crowds (at least when we were there),... More
