Getting to the Disney Springs Stores is pretty easy. You can drive and park for free, or take a Luxury Motor Coach from any of the Walt Disney World Resorts (except Port Orleans Resort, Old Key West Resort, and Saratoga Springs Resort – you can take a boat from those resort hotels). Buses and boats each have drop off points on the West Side and at the Marketplace.
In the parks and resorts, you can have packages sent back to your resort for pickup later in your trip so you don’t have to lug all those purchases around with you all day. Many of the Disney Springs offer the same (free) service, so ask if it’s available when making a purchase so you can enjoy the re stores st of your day or night baggage-free.
Dad’s Bottom Line
Disney Springs Stores offer some of the most special and unique items in all of Walt Disney World, in a setting that is both beautiful and filled with lively entertainment. Whether you go for a couple of hours or all night long, window shopping or actually shopping at Disney Springs can be a fun way to spend some time outside of the parks, seeing another side of what Walt Disney World has to offer.
