When it comes to a Walt Disney World vacation, no trip is complete without a visit to Disney Springs. Some people refer to it as Disney’s 7th park, and for good reason. With 100 shops, 67 dining options, and 24 attractions, and a touch of Disney magic, it really is like a mini theme park.

Home to six James Beard award winning chefs restaurants, Disney Springs is a must do for foodies. Whatever your taste buds, there is a restaurant for you. Some of our favorites are The Boathouse, Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’, and Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant. If you want the freedom of not being tied to a dining reservation, Disney Springs has several amazing quick service locations. Our favorites include Chicken Guy!, D-Luxe Burger, and Earl of Sandwich. And if you have a sweet tooth, I highly suggest stopping by Gideon’s Bakehouse, Amorette’s Patisserie, or The Ganachery.

Disney Springs is a perfect blend of OG Disney Stores (World of Disney, Once Upon a Toy, Disney’s Days of Christmas, etc) and popular retail chains (Sephora, Lululemon, Free People, Zara, Levi’s, etc). With 100 shops to choose from, you are sure to find the perfect souvenir. I do all of my souvenir shopping at Disney Springs so I don’t have to carry anything around in the parks. Make sure to stop by the LEGO store to see their larger than life Disney models!

Disney Springs is more than just shopping and dining, though! With countless entertainment options to choose from, you definitely will not be bored! You can go bowling, catch a movie, go on a vintage amphicar tour, soar sky high in a helium balloon, and catch live entertainment around every corner!

While most people plan every aspect of their Walt Disney World vacation around the theme parks, make sure to schedule some time to visit Disney Springs! Sometimes you just need an escape from the parks but still want that Disney magic, and that’s where Disney Springs has you covered!
