Why We Love the NEW Disney Springs #GoDisneySprings

What many of us remember as Downtown Disney, is now the NEW Disney Springs. . Disney Springs is part of Walt Disney World Resort, the number one family vacation destination in the world! Not only Downtown Disney change their name, they have also added more exciting restaurants and new store grand openings! Disney Springs offers just about everything from entertainment, unique dining, and shopping! Check out why we love the NEW Disney Springs and why you should visit ASAP! When you visit Disney Springs you’ll be experiencing history. Many years from now, you’ll be like “I was there when Disney Springs was once Downtown Disney or Town Center.” It has now grown into a modern day town that still holds that history and charm.

Tons of shopping opportunities

One of my favorite parts of Disney Springs is the ability to shop till you drop. I love shopping, not just to buy stuff but the fact that I get to look at all of the cool items available. If I could afford it, I’d be shopping all day long, but I have to have some restraint. There are actually at least 50 name brand and Disney themed shops at Disney Springs. How awesome is that? Here’s a complete list of all of the shops available at Disney Springs.

Don’t forget to check out the new Coca-Cola Store. The store is located in Town Center, the district’s newest neighborhood where guests can find exceptional shopping and dining venues. Offering exclusive merchandise, unique experiences and true refreshment, Coca‑Cola Store Orlando provides the perfect way to cap off a discovery-filled day at Disney Springs. Plus they have a pretty spectacular rooftop beverage bar.

Get Your Grub On

As a southern girl, you better believe that I’m all about the food available at Disney Springs. I can’t get enough of the options available. There are tons of Food Trucks and nice restaurants available at Disney Springs, which is awesome. Food Quest, Wolfgang Puck, D-Luxe Burger and so much more. I think it’s safe to say that you won’t go hungry!

So Much to Do

Another one of my favorite reasons for visiting Disney Springs is that there is so much to do. I don’t think there has ever been a moment that we’ve been bored while at Disney Springs. We personally loved the Star Wars Galactic Outpost, Visiting Splitsville, and just hanging out.  You won’t run out of things to do, food to eat, and entertainment to enjoy.

The next time you’re headed to Disney, make sure you check out Disney Springs. I love the atmosphere at the park and the fact that there is so much to do. Don’t forget to check out some of the entertainment options. House of Blues, the Interactive Theme Park, and check out the movie theater! Let me know if you get a chance to visit Disney Springs this year and what you loved about it! Maybe we’ll see you there!

    What a great read, I would have missed out in the Coke store, thanks!
  2. We haven't had an opportunity to visit the new Disney Springs. I think I will love the new food options the most (I'm not much of a shopper, so stores just don't appeal to me).
  3. The parking decks are fantastic!

  5. I love Food Trucks. They are so fun and have great food!
