The Ultimate Checklist: 10 Things You Must Do At Disney Springs

The Edison

Walt Disney World is a huge, amazing place chock full of entertainment around every corner. Many guests get so hung up on hitting the parks that they completely disregard Disney Springs. Sure, there is still some construction going on right now as Walt Disney World makes updates, which might keep some people away.

But here’s the thing, Disney Springs has a ton of dining and entertainment options. In fact, there are so many things to choose from, you may want to consider spending a whole day there! Take a down day from the theme parks and hang out at Disney Springs so you can move at a slower pace, relax, and hit the parks rearing to go the next day!

Here are ten things to keep you busy at Disney Springs! Grab a coffee at Starbucks and get going!

10. 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.

9. Create Your Own Snack at Goofy’s Candy Co.

This cool snack experience is one of my Disney favorites.  Design mouthwatering candy treats and watch them transform before you eyes.  From chocolate dipped rice crispy treats to candy apples. If you can dream it, they can build it!

8. Planet Hollywood Observatory

Buzzworthy bites are winning over the masses at Planet Hollywood Observatory! This Disney Springs restaurant features an innovative cuisine courtesy of Guy Fieri, live entertainment and of course – awesome Hollywood memorabilia. Snag a reservation in advance as this is a popular dining destination.

7. The 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.

6. Aerophile (formerly Characters In Flight)

Lift off and experience a birds eye view of Walt Disney World Resort in the world’s largest helium balloon.  Located at Disney Springs, this unique ride costs $15 for children and $20 for adults.  Time it right and you may even catch a view of the fireworks.

5. The Boats of The Boathouse

The Boathouse is now a signature restaurant at Disney Springs.  They specialize in chops and seafood, complete with a raw bar that oyster lovers will swoon over.  Located right on the water, this perfectly themed restaurant will surely be a fan favorite.  Even more perfect are the Amphicars (for those scratching your heads, that’s a car that drives on water) water tours offered outside the Boathouse.  $125 for a 20 minute tour, pricey but an experience you may never find again!

4. World of Disney

If you thought the Emporium was a huge Disney store, then you’ve never been to World of Disney. It’s the biggest Disney store in the world! Explore massive space brimming with apparel, toys, and home products.

3. The VOID

We are thrilled The VOID has joined the scene at Disney Springs. Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire and Ralph Breaks VR are fantastic entertainment option at Disney’s Springs The VOID. Perfect for tweens, teens, and adults, The VOID is an ultimate virtual reality experience. Team up (or be teamed up) with four guests and go on your mission. The multi-sensory environment makes virtual reality feel like…well, REALITY!

2.  Unique Shopping

Plus, there’s non-unique, but equally fun, stores like the Lego Store, Ghirardelli Ice Cream and Chocolate Shop, and Basin. There are shops all over Disney Springs.
