3. Disney Springs
One of the most picturesque places to shop, Disney Springs is not just a great place to get your shopping fix, it’s a fun afternoon out as well. The shopping and entertainment zone is built to give guests the feeling of shopping in a small town built around a spring (hence the name!), so it’s a great choice if you want to avoid a mega mall and make the most of the Floridian sunshine.
There are plenty of shops if you’re looking to make your wallet a little lighter, including the biggest Disney store in the world, World of Disney, and high-street brands such as Zara, Anthropologie and Sephora. Despite being well-known brands, all of the stores at Disney Springs must sell or display something completely unique, that no other store of the same brand has, in order to earn its place at Disney Springs, so it’s a great place to hunt for something a little out of the norm.
If you fancy spending the day at Disney Springs, there are plenty of other things to keep you entertained, including Cirque du Soleil La Nouba, amphibious cars or ‘Amphicars’, and a whole host of incredible restaurants that will leave you spoilt for choice.
