Disney Springs Westside

Head on over to the Westside at Disney Springs for non-stop entertainment that could keep you busy for days without ever stepping foot inside one of the parks at Walt Disney World.

The Disney Springs Westside is bigger than life – soaring buildings house movie theaters, bowling alleys, glorified arcades, and high end dining locations with sweeping views of Lake Buena Vista. You can’t miss the giant pineapple, enormous circus tent, or colossal planet that make this area so iconic.

Today, Westside houses most of the entertainment options at Disney Springs, and coupled with some fun shopping venues and interesting food, it makes for a great destination especially for families with teens. Bright colors, modern design elements, and music are key theme elements in this area.


Shopping at the Westside of Disney Springs focuses on collectibles and fashion at stores including Orlando Harley Davidson, Cirque du Soleil Boutique, D Street, Something Silver, PoP Gallery, Hoypoloi and Sunglass Icon.


For a quick service meal or snack, visit Bongos Cuban Café, Forty Thirst Street by Joffreys, Wolfgang Puck Café, Wetzels Pretzels, Italian Ice Stand. If you’re looking for a table service location, try Wolfgang Puck Café, which has both quick service and table service options, or Planet Hollywood.
