If you’ve visited Walt Disney World Resort lately, you may have noticed that Disney Springs has been undergoing an extensive expansion into a one-of-a-kind waterfront destination for shopping, dining, nightlife and entertainment. The four fascinating neighborhoods that make up Disney Springs are filled with so much to discover, they’ll pull attendees from one to the next.
Just recently, Morimoto Asia introduced flavors from across the Asian continent to guests visiting The Landing, a tasty waterside district absolutely overflowing with spectacular flavors. Complete with a trendy sushi bar, private rooms available to groups and a two-story outdoor terrace, Morimoto Asia is the perfect dining experience for attendees to enjoy after a day of meetings.
Located just a few steps away from Morimoto Asia is the one-of-a-kind Ganachery, showcasing hand-crafted chocolate with an experience similar to a wine tasting. This quaint shop expands the story of chocolate through the design, costumes, graphics and packaging. Attendees can try one of the 16 flavors of ganache, like dark chocolate with a touch of shaved Egyptian salt, or milk chocolate with a dash of dark chocolate and a pinch of Sri Lankan cinnamon.
From crystal glass coaches to sportswear with a Disney flair, The Marketplace is the one of the hippest Disney shopping experiences around. The star of this vibrant neighborhood is the popular World of Disney merchandise store, which has recently transformed into a larger, more spacious shopping experience. The expansion includes an addition of 6,000 sq. ft of retail selling space, a new entrance to the location, and interior changes to help attendees better navigate this vast shopping destination. World of Disney is now considered the largest merchandise shop at Walt Disney World Resort.
It has never been more convenient to visit Disney Springs. With the addition of two pedestrian bridges and parking garages, traveling to Disney Springs is more efficient than ever before. The two pedestrian bridges link Hotel Plaza Boulevard and Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa to Disney Springs Marketplace. The Orange Garage at West Side contains smart technology that clearly shows how many available spaces are at each level of the garage. Conveniently located minutes from the Disney convention hotels, Disney Springs can also be reached by complimentary bus transportation.
Whether you’re a meeting professional or event planner looking to host a private group in a signature restaurant, or a convention attendee looking for a little retail therapy, Disney Springs offers plenty of options for planners and attendees alike. In addition to the new and exciting dining options coming soon, Disney Springs will also welcome signature retail locations, including Tommy Bahama, Lilly Pulitzer, PANDORA, and more! With so much to do and discover at this vibrant district, Disney Springs is truly a destination in and of itself.
