AAA Editor Notes
Disney Springs®, 1486 Buena Vista Dr., is a waterfront complex offering eclectic boutiques, themed and celebrity restaurants, and live entertainment (including a House of Blues). Formerly known as the Downtown Disney® Area, it has evolved to encompass four neighborhoods: The Landing, a waterside district with one-of-a-kind boutique shops and wharf-side eateries; Town Center, a promenade of one-of-a-kind boutiques and flagship stores; Marketplace, a hip Disney shopping experience with offerings ranging from a sophisticated art gallery to the world's largest collection of Disney merchandise; and West Side, where the air is mixed with the sound of applause for the nightly entertainment offerings.
Characters in Flight ride is a tethered balloon ride that ascends 400 feet, providing a panoramic view of Walt Disney World® Resort. Splitsville Luxury Lanes™ is a more than a 30-lane bowling alley; it offers live entertainment, billiard tables and diverse dining options.
