Disney Springs: A Magical Escape

As Disney Springs has transformed in the past several years, the shopping, dining and entertainment complex has made it possible for people of all ages to relax, escape and indulge in one-of-a-kind experiences. The landscape is constantly changing, with new additions in three key areas getting guests excited to come back again and again.

Shop ‘Til You Drop: Visitors can shop across nearly 100 retail shops with an endless variety of brands and the world’s largest collection of Disney and co-branded merchandise anywhere. Highlights include well-known brands that offer collections with their own Disney flair, such as Uniqlo, Coach, Sugar Boo & Co. and Under Armour. Additionally, you will find more Disney-specific shops than anywhere else, including Ever After Jewelry, DisneyStyle and the recently renovated World of Disney, which features the world’s largest collection of Disney merchandise in a space that brings elements of wonder and delight to your shopping experience.

Gather Around the Table:With an abundance of delectable dining options from nearly 50 locations around Disney Springs, there is something for every palate and for everyone in the family. Two new concepts from award-winning chefs bring the flavors of Spain and California to diners, respectively. Jaleo by Jose Andres offers a diverse selection of tapas, including wood-grilled Iberico pork and the restaurant’s signature shrimp sautéed with garlic and chili, as well as authentic paella selections and sangria. The all-new Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill perfects the laid-back, Californian dining experience with signature dishes such as pizzas from a wood-burning oven, handmade pastas, steak and seafood that are prepared using local, organic ingredients. You can also savor the flavors of Mexico at Frontera Cocina by Rick Bayless and true southern comfort at Art Smith’s Homecomin’. Other concepts unique to Disney Springs include Wine Bar George, Planet Hollywood, Raglan Road, T-Rex and Amorette’s Patisserie. 

Fun for All: At Disney Springs, live entertainment and unique experiences can be found around every corner. From free entertainment nightly to watching a movie at AMC Disney Springs 24 while savoring shareable bites and libations in the comfort of a plush lounge chair, the options are limitless. Splitsville brings a retro-glamour bowling experience with two floors, 30 lanes and five bars, and The VOID allows you to step into a hyper-reality experience with state-of-the-art virtual reality technology, physical stages and multi-sensory effects in “Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire” and “Ralph Breaks VR.” Also, consider taking a family-friendly cruise around the lake on a Vintage Amphicar & Italian Water Taxi Tour by The Boathouse or participate in the all-new NBA Experience, which combines NBA action with Disney theme park magic in 13 separate activities.

Disney Springs continues to evolve and bring more unique and special experiences to Central Florida. You won’t want to miss it.
