Disney Vacation Guide to Downtown Disney

When you need a bit of a break from the theme parks, head to Downtown Disney for entertainment, shopping and other adventures – there are over 70 shops and restaurants to explore!  Whether you’re a power shopper, are looking for some vibrant nightlife, or simply need a break from the Water Park or the other Disney Theme Parks, Downtown Disney is a great place to spend some time.

Stock up on Disney memorabilia, chow down on southern food at the House of Blues or get mesmerized at a Cirque du Soleil show!

Throughout Downtown Disney there are restaurants featuring live entertainment and amazing views of Buena Vista Lagoon. Eat at fast food restaurants or elegant fine dining establishments. Take the little princess in your life to the Bibidi Bobbidi Boutique for an experience she’ll never forget.
