Disney Springs in my opinion is overlooked by most visitors to Walt Disney World. There’s a lot to see and do in Disney World so skipping Disney Springs can be easy, but I don’t recommend it. There is so much to do at Disney Springs. You can shop, eat, watch a movie, go bowling, take a boat ride, watch a live show and even get on a hot air balloon. Typical hours of operations for Disney Springs are 10 am to 11 pm on weekdays and 10 am to 11:30 pm on weekends. Hours may vary on certain occasions so always check before you are planning to go.
Disney Springs has Quick Service Dining, Kiosks, Table Service, and Bars and Lounges. You also have options at Disney Springs if you have a Disney Dining plan. There are FOUR areas at Disney Springs to be aware of. The Marketplace, The Landing, West Side, and Town Center.
It is free to get into Disney Springs. You don’t need a ticket or reservation to get in as you do at the Disney World theme parks. Free Disney bus services from any of the Walt Disney World Resorts will get you to Disney Springs. If you are staying at Disney’s Old Key West Resort, Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside or Disney’s Port Orleans – French Quarter, you can take a boat ride to Disney Springs. If you are staying at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort then you can simply take a quick walk over.
Shopping is one of my favorite things to do. Disney Springs is the place to do this. There are over 150 shopping opportunities. You can shop all things, Disney, at World of Disney or shop clothing like Under Armour. Whatever you are shopping for Disney Springs most likely will have it.

While in Disney my husband and I focus so much on making sure the kids are having the best time that we often overlook ourselves. A night out to Disney Springs is the perfect end to the busy days in the parks. You can make a dining reservation at a table service restaurant. Or play it by ear and get a quick service meal and grab some drinks at a Lounge. Some of the Lounge/bars stay open to 2am on the weekends. The Edison is a great place with Live Entertainment and great drinks.
