Make Time for Disney Springs
After the closure of Pleasure Island, most families only stopped at Downtown Disney for a quick dinner. Since its rebirth and rebranding in 2016, Disney Springs has become so much more than a shopping and entertainment district. It’s practically a whole new park. Thanks to the expanded stores and dining areas, Disney Springs is now a place that deserves at least a half-day in your itinerary. Foodies can feast at several venues including The Boathouse, Morimoto Asia, D-Luxe Burger, The Edison, and Sprinkles.
Shoppers in need of unique souvenirs can peruse The Marketplace Co-Op, Tren-D, and Uniqlo for great finds. Lastly, entertainment seekers should make advance reservations for the newest Cirque Du Soleil spectacular. Since La Nouba’s closure in 2017, Disney fans have been clamoring for the next production. Thankfully, in Spring 2020 a brand-new production will debut and feature the majesty of world-class acrobatics and the rich beauty of Disney animation. This celebration of artistic achievement is sure to enchant its audiences and frankly, couldn’t premiere at a more opportune time. Celebrate Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary by enjoying a show that defies logic and breaks tradition. (We’re pretty sure Walt would’ve approved.)
With so many expansions and attractions debuting, it will be a challenge to check everything off the list! But even if you can’t, if you take just one or two of these suggestions, you are sure to have a magical (and efficient) vacation. Happy planning! (And an early happy anniversary to our favorite place.)
