Disney Springs is filled with many amazing places see, and a whole lot to do. Despite what many people think it’s not ALL Disney shops down there. There are many Disney shops and WOW are they amazing, almost like a mini trip to the parks, but there’s a ton of other really great stuff to do there too!
Here are a few of our favorites that’s AREN’T Disney!
The Lego Store
The biggest Lego store I’ve ever been in. What’s so fun though, is outside, under a covered area are loads, and loads of Legos for you (or your kids!) to play with! A great spot when you get too hot, or it’s raining. There are huge Lego sculptures inside the store, outside the store, and even in the water! It's the perfect place for lots of pictures, and outside of the back entrance, is even a special Lego wall, perfect for more pictures!
Characters in Flight by Aerophile- Balloon Ride
The world’s largest, and also entirely hand painted hot air balloon! Enjoy a tethered ride with views up to 10 miles! It’s a little tough to get on this one because it is weather permitting, but whether you ride, or just gaze up at it, it’s an impressive sight.
What a neat store this is! Uniqlo is a brand from Japan and everything is just awesome! Well fitting, cute, and sizes and styles for everyone, with amazing prices! It’s also the place to get licensed Disney apparel at (dare I say it?) Target prices.
Coca cola store
I think this is really cool! There’s a rooftop beverage bar! You can rest your feet, sip a drink and enjoy the amazing views. I’ve never tried one of the Coke tastings, but you can actually buy different sample platters of coke products from all over the world. A larger Club Cool from Epcot if you will. Plus, this is THE place to get any fun merchandise for the collector that you know, you know.

Disney Springs has so much more! Over 100 shops and over 50 restaurants! From high end shops, to toys for any age, and something for every taste bud, you can’t go wrong stopping by! It’s possible to spend a whole day here and not do anything Disney, and it’s also possible to spend a while day here and do nothing but Disney!
What’s your favorite Disney Springs stop? And do you still want to call it Downtown Disney, too?
