Top 6 Reasons Why We Love Dining At Disney Springs

There is a lot to do at Disney Springs. There is plenty of shopping, you can catch a movie, enjoy live entertainment, see Walt Disney World from 400 feet in the air, and much more. Arguably the best reason to visit Disney Springs, though, is the food. Here are six of the many reasons why we love dining at Disney Springs.

6. Parking

Parking at Disney Springs is fairly simple. There are three parking garages, and several other lots as well. Space was tight for a while, but things have improved quite a bit since the garages opened. If you have a dining reservation, you will still want to give yourself plenty of time, especially if you are visiting in the evening. The best part of parking at Disney Springs is that it is free. One last word about parking, you cannot park at Disney Springs and take a bus to a theme park. Buses run to the hotels, but not to the parks.


Disney Springs is beautiful, especially near sunset. There are some great restaurants from where you can see day turn to evening. Many restaurants offer outdoor dining, giving you a chance to relax and watch the water. One of the best views is new, it’s from the top of the Coca Cola Store. While the Coca Cola Store Rooftop Beverage Bar is more of a lounge than a restaurant, it’s definitely worth a stop, no matter what time of day it is.

4. Nightlife

You might have come for the sunset, but you’ll want to stay at Disney Springs after dark. Several of the restaurants have live music or other entertainment. There is plenty to do in the evening! If you are visiting with your family you might want to bowl or enjoy a dance party. Of course the bowling isn’t just for families; Splitsville has five bars. There are romantic restaurants for two, as well as plenty of places to grab an exotic cocktail. It is no surprise that Disney Springs is popular after dark with tourists and locals alike.

3. Value

Dining at Walt Disney World can be expensive, but there are two meal options at Disney Springs that won’t hurt your budget. The first is a classic. Earl of Sandwich is a Disney Springs staple, dating back to 2004. The lunch and dinner menu features hot sandwiches built to order. Breakfast is served as well. Earl of Sandwich is known as one of the most affordable restaurants at Walt Disney World, and the line grows long fast. Don’t worry, the staff knows how to move things along quickly. The second value eatery opened in 2016. Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza allows you to build your own pie, or choose from the list of specialty pizzas. You will place your order and it will be ready in three minutes.

2. Variety

Disney Springs has several different signature options to choose from. You can enjoy fresh seafood, dishes created by internationally famous chefs, and unique atmospheres.

About PaulaK

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
