Disney Springs is Walt Disney World’s shopping, dining and entertainment district. Here you’ll find some of your favourite chain stores and also speciality retailers. Some of my favourite stores are the World of Disney and DisneyStyle where they sell Disney park merchandise. We always spend a morning or an afternoon here during our Disney Vacation. It’s also a very popular destination in the evening, as it stays open until 11pm or 11:30pm on the weekends. There are plenty of delicious places to enjoy an evening meal between shopping stops. Whether you want a relaxing meal or a quick bite, a loud atmosphere or something more romantic, you are sure to find your favourite choice here.

Amorette’s Patisserie. Town Center.

There is no seating inside, so you’ll have to take your food and eat at one of the tables found around the Town Center area.
AristoCrepes is a kiosk style spot, where guests can go up to the counter and place their order. The menu is full of sweet crepes, that some may think of as a snack but I would definitely consider a meal. You can choose between Strawberries and Cream, Banana Chocolate-Hazelnut or S’Mores. Okay, so maybe the S’Mores one is a bit of a stretch for dinner, but you’re on vacation!
