After a long day (or days) at the Park, sometimes you need an afternoon to unwind. Disney Springs offers the right amount of fun, food, shopping, and relaxation. Depending on what you want, there is something for every family member.

If you’re like me, you enjoy taking one day out of your trip to see everything other than the Disney World parks. Although the parks are jam-packed with fun, there are so many other opportunities to be had outside of Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, EPCOT, and Hollywood Studios. Whether it’s riding the monorail to try out different Resort restaurants, heading to Disney Springs, soaking up the sun at one of the water parks, or hanging by your Resort’s pool, countless excursions are offered in the Walt Disney World area.

Disney Springs offers so much to do, with shopping, various cuisines, live performances, and entertainment. Happy Hour is just one of the many opportunities to experience something new at Disney. One of the things Disney does best is reimagining something that may seem like an everyday item. Instead of ordering just a regular beer, their version is green in Animal Kingdom.

Disney has a way of detail and giving everything a theme, and Happy Hour in Disney Springs is no different. It allows us to try new cuisines and beverages while feeling immersed in the restaurant’s culture. It’s also a great option for light bites and drinks without breaking the bank. Furthermore, if you’re a local or on a trip with a big group, this could be a great “team outing” written by Disney’s Meeting and Events Team.
