Disney Springs Guide for First Timers

Hi loves! We are back from such a great weekend and for some a long and fun spring break! The Monday after all fun events is always the worst but the bright side is once it’s over you’ve completed your first Monday back! (I know I’m the worst trying to make a bad into a good).  Let’s just all drink a ton of coffee, eat a donut if you have one available, and kill this Monday girlboss style.

To lighten today’s mood, I thought I would share about one of my experiences at Disney.  As many of you know I spent a fabulous couple of days in Disney for my birthday.  I had such a great time at Disney and am missing it every single day!  I keep going back and looking at all the pictures and just keep reminiscing on all the fun and laughter that I had up there! Disney is such a great place to go and feel like a kid again.  I know I do!

One of the things that we got to do is go to Disney Springs.  This was my first time at Disney Springs and it did not disappoint.  Today I’m here to share with you my first experience and what you should do if you are going to visit for the first time!


One of the many great things that Disney Springs offers is food! They have so many restaurants that it will be hard to choose (trust me).  I got to try some options and these are definitely on my favorite list.

House of Blues-The Front Porch: They do have the restaurant right next door but the front porch was so cute! They had live music and the weather was nice so I couldn’t be happier with our choice.  To eat I had a shredded chicken BBQ sandwich with a beer!

Planet Hollywood Observatory: So many delicious options for food! We went here to try Supernova Shakes and they definitely did not disappoint! This shake is what dreams are made of! We got the Strawberry Big Bang and it’s a strawberry shake with icing and sprinkles all over the cup and they add a slice of birthday cake to the top and finish it off with a delicious rainbow lollipop.  This is no joke and you should definitely save room for it! We also tried their Cosmic Colada and it was yummy! Plus, we got a souvenir cup! 🙂

Sprinkles: If you don’t have one near you try one of their cupcakes! They are so good and if you are celebrating your birthday, sign up for their program online so that you can stop in and get one for free!

Tea Traders Café by Joffrey’s: Try everything here! I wish I had! The Frozen Chai was way to good and I seriously could go for one right now! It is spiked but they also have regular chai for those who aren’t looking to drink.


Disney Springs has a ton of things to ranging for kids to adults! Trust me there is an option for every one!

Shopping:  Guys this is like a mini mall and has so many great stores including, Zara, Lilly Pulitzer, Alex & Ani, Sephora, Vera Bradley, Lego Store, Anthropologie, and of course we can’t forget about all the Disney specialty shops! If you are looking to get any shopping in this is definitely the place!

Movies: There is an AMC and you can grab some dinner here too! Perfect if you are wanting to do some shopping or any of the other entertainment while you leave the kids to watch and eat!

Cirque Du Soleil: One of the best things offered is this right here! There are shows every night and it is such a great date night idea!

Characters in Flight: Okay so I’m scared of flights but this looked way to cool to pass up! They have a hot air balloon and for $20 you can go up and get a great view of Disney World! It’s definitely something I think everyone should do! TIP: You can get a 50% discount on Groupon if you look it up!

One of the best things I think you can do is take in the location and all the amazing views! It is right next to some water and it’s so beautiful and romantic during the day or at night! Grab a pretzel from Wetzel’s Pretzels & and tea from Tea Trader’s Café and just enjoy the view! I promise you won’t regret it!

I hope you guys enjoyed my guide to Disney Springs!  If you’ve been to Disney Springs, tell me what your favorite spots to hit up are! I know I will definitely be visiting again!

    I was just there in February and had a blast! The hot air balloon ride was closed during my visit due to wind. 🙁 We ate at the restaurant with bowling lanes inside. We were pleasantly surprised to find no charge for parking in the garage!

      I actually didn’t go into the garage because I thought they did charge but not charge! That’s amazing! I’ll have to remember that for next time.

    I’ve been there once and it was such a neat place to walk around. We didn’t do the hot air balloon but it looked really neat.
