Plan A Day In Disney Springs

Recently, Disney Springs went through a multi-million dollar make-over, making it the #1 retail and dining destination on Disney property and one of Orlando’s hottest attractions. Before it’s overhaul it was referred to as Downtown Disney and something many guests would think of as an afterthought. These days Disney Springs is a must for anyone traveling to Disney. Disney Springs has the perfect mix of Disney souvenirs, luxury shopping, world-class cuisine and tons of extra fun experiences. There is a little something for everyone when visiting Disney Springs.

Allow me to show you how to plan the best day at Disney Springs, it’s easily my favorite place on property. Let’s not forget that there are safety measures put into place that we must follow so remember to plan accordingly.

Disney Springs is easy to get to from any Disney resort, certain boat marinas, and by car. There’s an abundance of parking now thanks to the redesign of their parking system.

Personally, I’m a HUGE fan of non-park days, which may be why I love Disney Springs. It’s so refreshing to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the parks while still experiencing the Disney. There’s so much to see, do and easy while downtown that you still feel fully immersed in Disney.
