Whether you’re planning a Disney vacation or you happen to be in the Orlando (OK, technically Lake Buena Vista) area for a few days—you’ve got to stop by Disney Springs. A cornucopia of shops, live music and of course, restaurants, Disney Springs was originally a marketplace before being rebranded and divided into Downtown Disney (the family-friendly shopping area) and Pleasure Island, the “nightlife district” full of clubs and bars—but since 2008, it's had quite the facelift in the family-friendly direction. Today, it offers a cornucopia of shops, live music and restaurants, making it a fun way to unwind between days jam-packed with thrill rides. Better yet, parking is free 24/7.
But when hunger strikes, what do you eat? Fear not, friends—we’ve snacked our way through the many dining options that have sprouted up in the area to bring you the 18 best Disney Springs restaurants to suit every mood and palate.
