To begin, let's talk a little more about what is Disney springs.

What is Disney Springs

Being a complex filled with quality entertainment, diverse food and shopping, it is like a city center.

It is completely free to enter and can be done by anyone, and the doors are open from early morning until dawn, in some establishments.

Even though Disney Parks offer many other events, the Disney springs has its own and very peculiar charm, being a very nice option for a late afternoon or a party in the region.

Remember to always go scheduled with a way to go and return, as there is no more internal transport with this destination!

The most recommended is to go by car, which should take about 15 minutes from the main park!

If you've been to Disney springs, knows that there is no shortage of restaurants or attractions and things to do.

If you haven't gone yet, don't worry, because here we'll list everything you can find there.

We'll even give you general shopping and dining tips in addition to Disney Springs attractions.

So get ready because the amount of things there is amazing!

We also have a totally specific post about the Disney Springs restaurants if you want to read it too.

Prepared? So let's go!

Top Disney Springs Attractions in 2022

We will start by talking about some attractions that are found there.

These attractions are often inside restaurants or cafes.

However, if the big draw of the place is an attraction like a bowling alley instead of the food, it will be in this session.

Otherwise, you can find more information in the Disney Springs dining and shopping section.

Aerophile

This is one of the attractions that is impossible to miss at Disney Springs.

It's simply the giant balloon where you can fly and have a super privileged view of Disney Springs!

Aerophile at Disney Springs

It was known as Characters in Flight, it has now changed its name but remains the iconic Disney Springs balloon.

This is a great opportunity to spend 10 minutes in the sky, aboard a hot air balloon à la Mágico de Oz.

It usually runs from 9 am to 11 pm.

The cost to ride the balloon is $25 for each adult and $20 for children (from 3 to 9 years old).

House of blues

A live house that shows a little of everything!

Just like the Blues, which is a harmony of various forms of sound expression, the House of Blues is also like that!

Also bringing together a restaurant in the environment, there are some ballads night with different bands. Eventually it is possible to see some more famous band there.

Splitsville Luxury Lanes

It is very famous for its 90's style bowling! However, Splitsville Luxury Lanes is much more than that.

Bowling is definitely amazing and if you like bowling, this is a place you MUST visit in Disney Springs.

But enjoy the place completely, the food there is very tasty and there you can find delicious and different drinks, like a drink made from Dole Whip!

In addition, Splitsville offers live music on certain days and at specific times, making it a complete place to spend a few hours of your day!

The VOID (Permanently Closed)

Get ready for a cutting-edge augmented reality adventure where you can enter the world of Star Wars and fight some StormTroopers or enjoy the amazing world of Wreck-It Ralph.

The Void - Disney Springs Attraction

It was a fantastic experience and unlike anything we had ever done in terms of an immersive simulator.

Unfortunately it was closed due to the pandemic and we don't know if it will return or if it will in fact be closed permanently.

AMC cinema

Of course Disney Springs would offer a venue for movie lovers.

There you can watch movie releases at these amazing AMC theaters.

With that, you can sail with this car on a super special ride on the lake with a retro movie look.

Waterside stage

Receiving many shows throughout the year, the stage usually has some regular presentations, from choirs to small bands, every now and then we find some gems there worthy of a paid show.

Waterside Stage - Disney Springs Attraction

Apart from these fixed attractions, we can still talk a little about the Live Music, which always appears on the streets of Disney Springs.

Literally, it can happen anywhere.

The live music spots are well spread out and manage to attract the attention of everyone who passes by.

Some of them are:

Waterview Park;
Riverboat square;
Springs Overlook;
Sunshine Highline.

Whether it's dancing songs or not, you're sure to enjoy good music.

In addition to entertainment and music, we are talking about Disney huh?

could not miss the little shops! So let's see where you can leave a few dollars behind.

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique

Just by the name we find it charming, we can already see that the little shop comes straight from the world of fairies, isn't it?

The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is a very popular activity at Disney Springs.

Disney Springs Restaurants in 2022

And of course, I can't help but talk a little about food, right? After all, there is no diet that lasts on a trip to disney.

Jokes aside, it is possible to eat well, yes and at Disney Springs, there is no shortage of options, both for different tastes and budgets.

In fact, Disney Springs is home to some of the best restaurants you can find in Orlando.

Let's check out some of the most sought after options!

If you want more details, be sure to check out our full post about all Disney Springs Restaurants.

The Boathouse

An amazing Disney Springs restaurant that could not be missing from this list.

It has a nautical theme and an incredible view of the Disney Springs lagoon.

The Boathouse - Disney Springs Restaurant
The Boathouse – Disney Springs Restaurant

The restaurant's focus is seafood, but even other options like meats and hamburgers are very good!

If you want a place with good food and an incredible view in Disney Springs, The BoatHouse can be a good choice for your itinerary.

Remembering that the dishes here are not the cheapest. A plate of NY Strip or T-Bone costs an average of $55.

Earl of sandwich

Couldn't miss my favorite restaurant ever. Disney springs.

Okay, it's not a refined restaurant, quite the contrary, it's a sandwich restaurant, but none of those hamburgers you're tired of eating in the parks.

The Earl of sandwich have sandwiches with wonderful ingredients that will go great in any meal of your day.

Earl of sandwich

I love to buy one, eat half of it and leave the rest for breakfast the next day.

The atmosphere is also very cozy and very quick to get the food, you choose what you want at the cashier and you will receive a pager, outback style and when your sandwich is ready, it will vibrate and flash for you to go get one of the best sandwiches in your family. life eheheheh.

Below is a preview of the delights you can find there.

Blaze Fast Fire'd Pizza

Another pizzeria? Not just another pizzeria because this one is very different from all!

What makes it different is that instead of choosing a pizza from a menu, there you can assemble your own pizza in a “subway” style.

Blaze Pizza - Restaurant at Disney SpringsBlaze Pizza - Restaurant at Disney Springs
Blaze Pizza – Dining at Disney Springs

Is it really fun and delicious to choose exactly the ingredients you like to eat, and the price?

Super cheap, a pizza comes out around 1TP8Q11 with the fees and feeds 2 adults, a detail, within that price you can put as many ingredients as you want.

It sounds too good to be true ? Check it out and send us some pics =)

Enzo's Hideaway

Anyone who has read the blog for some time knows my opinion about the Enzo's Hideaway.

In my opinion it is one of the best and perhaps the best restaurant in Orlando.

The food is Italian, so it's a feast for lovers of this type of cuisine.

And without any exaggeration, I ordered Pasta da Nona and what is a “simple” pasta dish with meatballs has become my favorite dish ever!

Enzoos Hideway Departed Disney PArks
Enzoos Hideway Departed Disney PArks

It was the best meatball I've ever had in my life!

It is worth mentioning that it is not a cheap restaurant, on the contrary, it is of a more refined gastronomic level so expect more expensive dishes here (around $50 per person).

paddlefish

That is one restaurant which is on a boat and it is impossible for you not to notice it there.

His specialty is seafood.

It is also a restaurant with a higher price, but for seafood lovers I believe it is an excellent choice!

Paddlefish - Seafood Restaurant at Disney Springs
Paddlefish – Seafood Restaurant at Disney Springs

I had the opportunity to eat there during the Influencers of Magic program when we were invited by Disney and we just loved the food!

Tip: For those who like guacamole, they have a lobster guacamole that is amazing!

T-Rex

That restaurant is super famous and stands out for the dinosaur theme that can please children a lot.

T Rex Disney Springs
T Rex Disney Springs

Honestly the food is nothing too amazing, but for families with kids looking for a different place to eat it might be a good option!

You can take a look at the official menu from the restaurant.

The Homecoming: Florida Kitchen and Southern Shine

This restaurant is inspired by southern US cuisine, always with a Florida touch, and seems to have some very interesting options on its menu.

The Homecoming - Disney Springs
The Homecoming – Disney Springs

The menu is signed by Chef Art Smith, who was once the chef at Oprah Winfrey.

D-Luxe Burger

A restaurant is fully operated by Disney made especially for burger lovers like us!

It offers slightly more gourmet options, with a mix of selected meats, fresh breads, as well as selected fillings and accompaniments.

D-Luxe Burger - Disney Springs Restaurant
D-Luxe Burger – Disney Springs Restaurant

We are hamburger lovers and we love to eat at several places that offer good hamburgers in Orlando. We even have a list of best disney burgers.

This one is not far behind places we love like Five Guys and Culver's.

Rainforest Cafe

The restaurant chain that is most successful in the world for its jungle setting also has a unit at Disney Springs.

rainforest-cafe-disney-springs
rainforest-cafe-disney-springs

At the Rainforest Cafe you will find not only a different theme but very delicious food. And it is mainly recommended for those families who have children as they usually love the decor here!

And of course, be sure to check out the menu and make your reservations before planning your trip to the Rainforest.

Is Disney Springs Worth Visiting?

Finally, we can say to you that the Disney springs deserves to be in your script with at least one afternoon and one night for calm walks around the region.

Today we can see there a beautiful variety of restaurants and very cool attractions, with things for all audiences, ages and all tastes!

It is worth your visit.

By the way, have you been there and want to leave your comment here about what you did and what you think of the region?

Do you have any requests for another place that we could show you curiosities here or what to do there?

When is the best time to visit Disney Springs?

I think Disney Springs is an excellent option for a late afternoon or even at night on a quieter day of your trip!

Or for dinner and late at night after a day of shopping!

The nights are very lively there and that's why this is my favorite time to go there, however, it's also when it gets busiest.

If you intend to shop there, I recommend going early to enjoy the wonderful Uniqlo, the huge Zara, Sephora or so many other options. Because they tend to be emptier in the mornings!

Spending a full day at Disney Springs is relatively easy as you have plenty of shops, entertainment and places to eat lunch, snacks and dinner!

For those who have more energy, you can leave a park that closes early and go there to end your night, however, we don't recommend it due to fatigue. Do this only if you don't have free days in your itinerary!

Be sure to leave your comment below with all of this!

Get your Parks Tickets at a Discount

Many people leave to buy their tickets when they arrive in Orlando or even on park day.

We absolutely do not recommend that you do this for a number of reasons, such as:

If you buy tickets on the spot, you won't be able to book your park days in advance at the risk of not even being able to enter a park on a given day.

You will lose valuable park minutes in line to buy your tickets.

AND MOSTLY, you will pay more because tickets at the box office are more expensive than buying in advance!

Access our ticket website to buy your tickets or request a free consultation to find out exactly which tickets are the best to buy.
