Disney Springs Shopping Area

If you want to spend some time doing some serious shopping, look no further than Disney Springs.

This dining/shopping/entertainment mecca is the place to find something for everyone on your list.

There is no entry fee to enter the area and with all of the shopping you can think of concentrated in one place, it is easy to understand why some people skip shopping in the theme parks altogether and make a special stop here for souvenirs and other must have items.

Multi-Year Renovations

In early 2013 Downtown Disney began its transformation to what is now known as Disney Springs -the shopping areas fourth official name change since it opened in 1975.

Once complete the shopping destination will feature two parking garages and a slew of new tenants.

Each of the parking garages are free of charge and with the use of state of the art technology you will no longer need to endlessly circle each level looking for a place to park.

Every level and row will have a real-time counter that shows you available parking spaces.

Every day there are also announcements of new tenants such as Morimoto Asia, a fine dining restaurant that offers Asian fusion cuisine.

Pandora, UGG and Zara are also a few retail shops that will be opening doors in 2016.

150 Different Stores

Over 150 different stores ranging from apparel, Disney gear, toys, jewelry, art, and housewares are located around the Disney Springs area.

Here are some of the highlights, but by no means the complete list of unique and fun places to shop at Disney Springs.

If your feet are in need of a treat then you can stop in at Sanuk or Havanianas for a new pair of shoes

One of the hardest to miss stores is the giant LEGO store near the entrance to the area.

Flanked by giant LEGO sculptures, it is very hard to walk by without stopping to put a few bricks together in their outdoor play area.

Disney Design-A-Tee puts you in the artist’s chair and lets you customize your own shirt by choosing colors, images and text.

If you are collecting Disney pins, you’ll want to make a stop at the open air Pin Traders.

More shops will come to life in staggered openings throughout 2016.

Goofy’s Candy Company & Once Upon a Toy

While shopping if you want a treat check out Goofy’s Candy Company where you can make your own sweet confection (and pick up some candy for the road)!

Lefty’s is a very unique store where you can get gifts for the left-handed people in your life, and Mickey’s Pantry is where you will find Mickey- themed culinary tools.

For the kids, or the kid at heart, Once Upon a Toy is an amazing store for the décor alone.

Also inside you can find any Disney DVD currently available, and even a “make your own droid” Star Wars station.

You are even able to get specialty candy bars at the Disney owned and operated chocolatier, The Ganachery.

Finally, if you haven’t found what you are looking for yet, The World of Disney offers it all.

Anything Disney themed can be found at this 100,000 square foot shop.

Shopping is part of the fun at Walt Disney World, and a good way to utilize your time in the area is to go for the rides in the theme parks, then shop ‘till you drop (or at least until dinnertime) at Downtown Disney.

Even old favorites like Planet Hollywood are getting a makeover.

No longer will you find the giant globe.

The restaurant will become a turn of the 20th Century observatory complete with outdoor seating and a series of springs that you can leisurely stroll though.
