If you’re visiting Disney Springs you might be a little overwhelmed, which is fine because there is a lot there! We have a list of things you MUST do when you visit Disney Springs so make sure you jot them down and it’ll help you navigate your day a lot easier.

  1. Visit Stitch – There is a massive Stitch at the Disney Store, if you walk under it you may get a little wet, check it out and do some shopping while you’re there.
  2. Coca-Cola Polar Bear – If you visit the Coca-Cola store you’ll be able to get a photo with the Coca-Cola bear, ask a member of staff when his next photo opportunity is. Make sure you take photos on your phone or you’ll have to pay for the professional one.

Is Disney Springs Worth It?

Yes, Disney Springs is worth it. We really enjoyed our time at Disney Springs and we both think it’s worth a visit that’s for sure. We had to visit in order to get our Magic Wristbands as well so we didn’t have a choice, we’re glad as we had a great meal out at Planet Hollywood thanks to it.

There are no memory maker passes at the park and you have to pay $25 per person if you want to ride the hot air balloon but other than that it’s a nice Disney day out for the whole family. It doesn’t get as busy as the Disney parks either so you can enjoy yourself a little more.
