Since the rebranding of Downtown Disney into Disney Springs in September 2015, there have been countless exciting new additions to the shopping, dining and entertainment lineup. It’s seems like things are always expanding and changing here. If you like to explore Disney Springs every time you visit Walt Disney World, you’ll know that there is so much to see and do. So whether you like to shop for unique Disney items, dine at an incredibly diverse group of restaurants, or you’re just looking for the entertainment available to you, there is a lot to choose from when planning your visit. Of all the places to choose from, we’ve come up with a list of the 10 things to do in order to truly experience Disney Springs.
10. Morimoto Asia
The first experience on our list comes courtesy of Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto. As a Japanese master chef, Morimoto has been a creative force in Asian cuisines for years and has used his experience to combine Chinese, Japanese and Korean dishes into a “Pan-Asian” experience. Dine in the lounges, under the 20-foot-long chandeliers, or make your way up to the sushi bar on the second level. With appetizers that pack some serious flavor there are some great ways to get your lunch or dinner started. The Dim Sum and Sushi items on the menu are also a perfect addition to your meal. The entrees are truly unique even with all of the restaurants here and there are so many possibilities to choose from. You really can’t go wrong at this one of a kind restaurant.
9. Lego Store
Whether you grew up with a love of Lego’s or you haven’t experienced the diversity in the Lego collection, you’ll be happy to know that the Lego Store in Disney Springs has an incredible selection over a wide variety of price ranges. From classic builder sets to the worlds of Lord of the Rings, Star Wars or Pirates of the Caribbean, the Lego Store has something for every kind of fan. It’s worth checking the store out even for the life-size displays they construct. Pick up a Lego set, or just pick out your favorite character as a Lego person, there will certainly be something there for you.
8. Amorette’s Patisserie
Located in Town Center, almost behind The World of Disney Store, is a slice of heaven known as Amorette’s Patisserie. This is a sophisticated pastry shop that you won’t regret visiting and tasting one of their many mouth-watering pastries. They also offer specialty cakes that can be pre-ordered.
7. Goofy’s Candy Co.
To satisfy your sweet tooth, there’s no better place to go than Goofy’s Candy Company at Disney Springs. Filled with any kind of treat you could imagine, it’s easy to get lost in the choices and end up with a little of everything along the way. Fill your bags with an assortment of gummy candy or hard candy, or if chocolate is your favorite, you can make your way over to the counters to pick up some baked goods like fudge, cake pops or crispy treats. One of the best things about Goofy’s Candy Company is the fact that you can create your own treat and watch as it’s made right in front of your eyes. Choose from caramel apples, pretzel rods, marshmallows, gingerbread cookies, Mickey Krispy Rice treats or a fudge cookie and then select a dipping flavor, toppings and a final drizzle – it’s completely customizable.
For fans of Dinosaurs, T-Rex is the perfect restaurant to enjoy lunch or dinner in the midst of shopping at Disney Springs. It’s kind of like the prehistoric version of Rainforest Cafe. The atmosphere inside is always fun, regardless of where you end up sitting. The 15-foot tall T-Rex, along with a woolly mammoth, enormous octopus and several other animatronic creatures fill the space whether you’re in the color-changing ice caverns or the forest of ferns. The menu offers lots to choose from, all with a prehistoric theme. About every 20 minutes, you’ll find yourself in the midst of a meteor shower, so be prepared for the restaurant to rumble as the creatures spring to life.
5. Coca – Cola Store
You simply can’t miss the massive and rather impressive architecture of the Coca-Cola Store located in Town Center of Disney Springs. Head inside to discover three floors, all with unique touches celebrating Coca-Cola. The first floor features a fantastic shop. The second floor offers more shopping, plus a photo op with the Coca-Cola Polar Bear! The third floor is our favorite, as it is a rooftop beverage bar with fantastic views of Disney Springs.

4. Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar
Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar is based on Indiana Jones’ pilot from Raiders of the Lost Ark. Filled with knick-knacks from Jock’s aviation career, there’s a lot to take in when you enter the hangar. With seats both indoor and outdoor (outdoor seats overlooking the water) you will be comfortable no matter where you are situated. As it is a bar first, the drinks menu is extensive, with a lot of movie inspired drinks including the signature Reggie’s Revenge. Food on the menu is a choice of appetizers that either may sound strange or seem plain but are really delicious. For a quick bite to eat and an almost endless drink menu, you can choose to hop in and out quickly or lounge around for a while in the hangar.
3. The Edison
The Edison is the newest hot spot at Disney Springs! Offering amazing dishes, outstanding beverages, and exceptional entertainment, be sure The Edison is placed on your Disney Springs must-do list.

It’s hard to imagine going to Disney Springs and not visiting the World Of Disney. It’s the largest Disney store in the world – even more so, since the latest remodel. There are several unique spaces that lay before you, filled with an incredible selection of Disney merchandise for everyone in the family. From souvenirs to clothing, housewares to the latest tech accessories, the World of Disney has something for you. Whether you’re shopping for yourself or for your friends, there is so much to explore – just make sure to have it all shipped to your resort (if you’re staying on property). Browsing through each room may take a while, so be sure to stop and look at the displays hanging from the ceiling and over the entrances. Each room is unique, but you can definitely sense the magic in each one, thought you may have a hard time picking a favorite.
