As avid fans we’d like to take this opportunity to share with you the magic of Disney Springs, especially if you’ve not had a chance to visit this fantastic place yet.
We absolutely Love Disney Springs, we spend almost every night there eating and shopping. Disney springs is an epic place for you to shop, take a break from the theme parks and treat yourself to something cool.
If you’re tired of Disney theme parks and want some time off shopping, Disney Springs is an amazing destination which has magical stores, magical restaurants, great selection of clothes, accessories, memorabilia and more.
Disney springs is Disney’s official dining, shopping destination, you can find transportation to Disney Springs from all Disney World Resorts.
Planning on visiting Disney springs? My advice is to go during the day, not later in the evening as there will be a bigger crowd simply because most people spend the day at the parks, and you won’t have the same fun roaming around, shopping as you will if you go earlier during the day.
Opening hours are from 8 AM to 1 AM. Here are some of my favorite places to shop and eat.
