It offers a vibrant and lively atmosphere, making it a popular destination for visitors looking for entertainment, dining, and shopping experiences.
Disney Springs offers a wide array of experiences for visitors of all ages, featuring four distinct neighborhoods: The Landing, Marketplace, West Side, and Town Center. Each area has its own theme and atmosphere, offering a diverse range of dining options, retail stores, and entertainment venues.
Visitors can explore an assortment of shops, including Disney-themed stores, upscale boutiques, and specialty shops. Disney Springs offers entertainment options such as live music, performances, and shows. The complex also features unique experiences like The VOID, an immersive virtual reality attraction, and Splitsville Luxury Lanes, a modern bowling alley with dining options.
Eating Gluten Free in Disney Springs
If you’re gluten-free or you have food allergies, Disney is well-known for serving up safe food! Disney Springs takes food allergies and dietary restrictions seriously and makes efforts to accommodate guests with special dietary needs, providing options for various food allergies, intolerances, and dietary restrictions.
Many restaurants at Disney Springs offer allergy-friendly menus or have options clearly marked for common allergens such as gluten, dairy, nuts, and other allergens. When dining at Disney Springs, remember to communicate your food allergies or dietary restrictions to your server or a Cast Member. They are trained to assist you and can provide guidance on suitable menu items or may be able to modify dishes to accommodate your needs. The staff members, including chefs and food preparation teams, receive training on allergen awareness and handling to minimize the risk of cross-contact.
Make sure to have dining reservations in advance and mention your food allergies or dietary restrictions during the booking process. This allows the restaurant to be better prepared for your arrival and ensures that they can provide appropriate options or make necessary arrangements.
