Disney Springs
The outdoor shopping, dining and entertainment complex with free entry formerly known as Downtown Disney was rebranded in 2016 by Walt Disney World, when it emerged as Disney Springs. Admission is still free. But gone is Pleasure Island, the former adult-oriented party zone with separate admission. And there's a new town center feel to the place, said to have been inspired by Florida towns Coral Gables and St. Augustine, that has given the buildings touches like tiled roofs and Mediterranean-inspired plazas. Of course, it's still all about retail and dining here, with nearly twice as many options for parting with your cash as Downtown Disney had. Many of the retails offer hands-on experiences, like the make-your-own flip flop bar at Havaina and an interactive play area at the Lego Store. Bongos Cuban Cafe is still here, and there's a new food truck area and fabulous new restaurants, too, including the highly lauded Morimoto Asia opened by a celebrity Food Network chef. After a day at the parks, it's a nice place to stroll for some people watching and a meal alfresco. Yes, you're pouring more money into the paws of the mouse - but at least Disney makes the experience appealing, right?
