~~~~~ Downtown Disney Orlando Florida ~~~~~
I strongly recommend visiting at least one part of Downtown Disney Orlando on your Disney Vacations. If you want to experience Downtown Disney, but you’re short on time, than I suggest parking in the Marketplace Parking Lot, and visiting the Marketplace area.
The Marketplace at Downtown Disney Orlando has the bulk of the best shops and restaurants.
~~~~~ Once Upon A Toy Store ~~~~~
There are lots of great stores at Downtown Disney Orlando to enjoy. My family and I go exploring there all of the time and never get bored.
The Downtown Disney Area has a huge selection of everything Disney, including Disney Trading Pins, Disney Movies, Disney Games, Disney Toys, Clothes and Accessories, Disney Cooking/Kitchen items and food /spices, Disney Christmas Ornaments and Decorations, Disney Art, Vinylmations, Candy and Baked Goods, Disney Jewelry, and so much more.
Here you can find the Best selection for Disney Merchandise. Downtown Disney also carries items that the Disney Theme Parks don’t, due to the lack of space at the Theme Parks.

As your looking around, indulge yourself in one of the many treats that DTD has to offer you.
There are several places to go if you are thirsty, like Forty Thirst Street by Joffrey's, a great place for coffee, or the Margarita Bar on the Boardwalk in the Marketplace.
If it is sweets or desserts that you are after, Downtown Disney Orlando has that too! No one can pass up Goofy’s Candy Co., a smorgasbord of wonderful candy and bakery items. Or Disney's Candy Cauldron, which has fresh made goodies like candy apples, cookies, fudge, and more.
~~~~~ The Marketplace Ridemakerz ~~~~~
We can’t forget about the great entertainment at Disney Downtown. This is where the excitement is with great shows like Cirque du Soleil’s La Nouba, or super fun DisneyQuest, an Indoor Theme Park with Interactive Disney Games.
The Waterside Stage next to The World of Disney Store in the Marketplace is home to Disney Performing Arts. The Stage is where visiting guests can watch various groups, like school choirs, perform.
DTD also has nightly entertainment at various locations like Live Music at the Margarita Bar and Music From Around The World. Check your times guide for all of the locations and times.
Our family's favorite entertainment is the DJ Kids Dance Party, starting at either 7:00pm or 8:15pm Mon.-Sun., depending on the location. This is a cool, kid friendly, dance party with a live DJ and guaranteed fun.
• Downtown Disney Entertainment
You might want to purchase Downtown Disney tickets ahead of time for La Nouba and DisneyQuest. This assures you that you won’t miss out on the fun!
DisneyQuest will take at least a half day or more, this is a good choice for a rainy day.
~~~~~ Performing Arts at the Waterside Stage ~~~~~
Whatever you choose to do while visiting, have fun!
