Downtown Disney

I wasn’t originally planning on visiting Downtown Disney, but our trip to Orlando was quite long, so there was certainly enough time to check it out.

I had pictured Downtown Disney to be similar to what Main Street in Magic Kingdom is like – basically a plethora of Disney retail stores lined along one long street… but was pleasantly surprised to be proven wrong.

First off, Downtown Disney doesn’t require a ticket or pass to enter, which is nice. While it starts off with a lot of small Disney stores in a marketplace type setting, it quickly opens up to more of a traditional Disney park-type setting, with much larger buildings and sights to see.

Downtown Disney is actually extremely small when compared to other Disney parks, but it’s still worth visiting. It had a lot better restaurants than the other Disney locations – we had a really nice authentic Cuban meal there. I couldn’t decide between Cuban or Fulton’s Crab House.

Here’s a video of some of what Downtown Disney has to offer:

    Enjoyed watching that video in HD. It reminds me a lot of Merlion park in Singapore where I was recently. Can’t believe there was no entry fee though. I guess maybe the restaurants foot the entry fee to ensure more customers to their establishments.
