My Favorite Things to do at Disney Springs

Hey guys,

Here's another Disney post! In case you haven't noticed yet, I am extremely obsessed with Disney and if anyone has any questions, like ever, just ask! I will probably have an answer for you. 

So there are a ton of new things to do at Disney Springs (formerly Downtown Disney) and it seems like they keep adding more every time I go. I used to love hanging out at Downtown Disney whenever we would take a trip up there and we would typically spend our evenings there because there are so many restaurants there that we would just eat at or we would go on our last day before we  got on the road to get out of town.
My Favorite Things to do at Disney Springs
So if you visit the website for Disney Springs, they have it divided by Shops, Dining, and Entertainment. So I'm going to divide my review like that as well! I'm mostly going to list out the things that I have done and liked and then all of the new items that I really want to try out.


They recently added on a huge shopping section to this mall. I've been to it twice now but I've only actually shopped in the stores one time. I was with my aunt, uncle, and cousin the first time and so we just walked around and explored and then the next time I went back with my mom and so we did some shopping! It's basically like a mini mall there now and I love almost every single store that they have there. They have Lucky Brand, Kate Spade New York, Sperry Top-Sider, and Lilly Pulitzer. Most of the brands are pretty high-end if you haven't noticed, so we didn't end up purchasing too much. When I went with my mom we bought some stuff from Sephora and then Lucky Brand was having an extra percentage off of their clearance so we picked up a few pieces each. I honestly don't even think that I've been able to wear one of the tops that I bought when we went because it's not work appropriate and it's also a little long so I haven't been able to style if the right way.

1) Disney's Candy Cauldron 
2) Sephora
3) Lefty's (The Left Handed Store) I'm actually left handed and so it's kind of fun to go here and see what kind of left-handed items they have! 
4) Marketplace Co-Op 
This store is so neat! It's basically just a bunch of mini stores within one really large store. We visit it almost every single time we go to Disney Springs.
5) World of Disney!
This store is insane and absolutely amazing. If you need to buy any Disney gear before leaving town, you will definitely want to hit up this store because it is huge and they basically have everything you could want there and more! 


So these are the restaurant's that I've tried and then there are several that I really want to try. 

1) Earl of Sandwich
2) Rainforest Cafe
3) Planet Hollywood
4) Ghirardelli Ice Cream & Chocolate Shop
5) Portobello Country Italian Trattoria
6) Sprinkles (so I haven't had the one at Disney Springs but I've had some in New York which is where the company originated from. They're pretty good! They're not the best cupcakes I've ever had but they are extremely popular in New York so I would definitely recommend trying them out!
7) I've also been one of the Irish restaurants, however, I cannot remember which one it was that we ate. I think my parent's have eaten at both (we all kind of became obsessed with eating at any Irish place to help reminds of us Ireland haha) and to be honest, it's Disney so I'm sure that both restaurants are fabulous. I think that one is more of a fast food joint though and the other one 

The restaurants that I really want to try include:
1) The Boathouse
2) D-Luxe Burger
3) The Dining Room at Wolfgang Puck Grand Cafe
4) Dockside Margaritas
5) Erin McKenna's Bakery NYC
6) FoodQuest
7) YeSake
8) Viola Il Gelato
9) T-Rex
10) Morimoto Asia
11) House of Blue Restaurant & Bar

I also really want to try the Coca-Cola Store Rooftop Beverage Bar because you are able to buy trays of drinks and sample different soda flavors and then they also have a float version as well. It's like going to a wine tasting except you get to drink soda instead of wine haha.


So the only thing I've actually done in their entertainment section is Disney Quest. I've only been a couple of times and it's been a long time since I've been and so I don't really have much to say other than it's fun and I totally recommend it! Some things that I really want to check out are the bowling alley (Splitsville Luxury Lanes), House of Blues (I've always wanted to see a show here but I never have), and Cirque du Soleil. I've seen a movie at the movie theater but it's been a while. I really want to see another one there and try out the dine-in theater portion. Dine-in theaters tend to be pricey and I've never actually done the dine-in portion before so it would be a lot of fun to try it out for the first time at Disney's theater!

So after reviewing the website, I think I might try and convince my family to take a weekend trip just so we can check out all of the new things to do at Disney Springs. There are so many things that we haven't gotten to try or do. They have so many new restaurants and shops. We also heard that they are going to be getting rid of Disney Quest soon and my sister kind of wanted to check it out one last time before it was gone. I've also always wanted to see a Cirque du Soleil show so that would be fun!

So whenever I go back to Disney Springs, I will write an updated post and let you guys know what I think about all of the new things that I tried!

XO, Steph
