Downtown Disney Marketplace, part of the Disney Resorts, is an exciting entertainment, dining and shopping area that lines a beautiful waterfront in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. Disney Marketplace is a great place to spend a fun filled day with the family!
The three areas that make up the 120 acre area are: The Marketplace, Pleasure Island and the West Side.
Downtown Disney in Lake Buena Vista, Florida where you will find fun for the entire family.
Downtown Disney Marketplace is located at 1490 E Buena Vista Dr in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. Parking and admission to the Downtown Disney area are complimentary. Guest to all Disney Resorts can get to Downtown Disney by taking Disney Transportation.
T-REX Restaurant is a visual delight…sure to entertainer the entire family.
The World of Disney Store is the world’s largest Disney character store! Shopping in this enchanted store for all things Disney is sure to delight the young and the young at heart.
One of my favorite shops is the Candy Cauldron…yum!
You can ascend 400 feet in the air in the world’s largest tethered helium balloon as you hover over the Downtown Disney area. How’s that for a view!! The view reminds me of our recent ziplinging adventure in Ocala, Florida just an hour and a half north of the Marketplace. You can also rent a boat and cruise around the lake.
DisneyQuest on the left, where you can play virtual reality games and Cirque Du Soleil straight ahead, where you can watch a thrilling acrobatics show, one not to be missed!
TIP: You can enjoy a leisurely 20 minute boat ride (weather permitting) from Downtown Disney Marketplace (next to the Rainforest Café) to Port Orleans and back at no charge. Something I would highly recommend as a resting point during your day at Downtown Disney. There are several dining options at Port Orleans for your enjoyment.
Christmas time at Disney Marketplace is one of our favorite times to visit. The decorations, holiday music and added entertainment are sure to add some “Magic” to your day! Be sure to check it out when you’re in the Orlando area.
