Today we visited Disney Springs the Walt Disney World Dining & Shopping paradise.
However; I started the day by completing the laundry with our youngest child whilst the others went early to Disney Springs.
A man’s work is never complete!
Now Mrs. Modernlifeisgood.com is likely to not agree with the above account. She has also asked me to correct my comments on Day 10.
She feels the crowds are horrendous all the time in July!! I have to admit I am slowly coming to the same opinion.
Previously known as Downtown Disney the conversion to Disney Springs was completed in Spring 2016.
Originally opening in 1975 Disney Springs is an outdoor shopping, dining, and entertainment complex.
The conversion to Disney Springs has made it more family centred with the complete closure of Pleasure Island an adult clubbing and bar area.
Disney Springs has a higher focus on quality shopping and dining than Downtown Disney.
Its is also the home to La Nouba by Cirque du Soleil.
Disney Springs is open all year and requires no admission or parking fees. To prevent guests avoiding parking at theme parks the are no direct buses to the parks.
From our resort, Riverside, Disney Springs can be reached by either boat or bus. The boat ride is a pleasant 20 minute journey.
Disney Springs is certainly very popular and crowds in the evening are large.
Whilst the are many new high quality restaurants in Disney Springs we ate at an old favourite T-Rex cafe. The attraction here is the theming with the realistic looking dinosaurs & meteor showers.
Food is good quality and plentiful although not very ambitious. It is a great family restaurant.
Our day in Disney Springs was yet again ruined by terrible weather. We spent a considerable amount of time hiding in shops to escape the storm. Although initially planned we did not go to Magic Kingdom in the evening due to the bad weather.
Tomorrow we are off to Animal Kingdom and a first look at Pandora: World of Avatar.
