Hey, Dad. What can you tell me about Downtown Disney (DTD)? Now that's a great question. What can I tell you? I can tell you a whole lot because there is a whole lot to tell.
There are shops, restaurants, shops, hotels, entertainment, shops and more shops. DTD is a special place. It's also a huge place. It stretches over a mile with 3 distinct areas and 2 bus stops.
These hotels offer affordable options to the Disney Hotels but still are close enough to be part of the Magic.
There is something for everyone (except for McDonalds lovers) here. Kids will love T-Rex and Rainforest Cafe. Adults will really enjoy a great meal at Fulton's Crab House or House of Blues. Check out all the offerings.
The whole reason Disney built DTD was because there wasn't enough room in the parks for all the shops and boy are there a lot of shops. There is everything from the biggest Disney Store in the world to a place where you can actually buy mismatched socks. No, I'm not kidding.
There are lots of name brand and specialty shops in this area. There is a Harley Davidson store, a Christmas store, and even a store that sells amazing chocolate.
DisneyQuest truly is something unique. It's more than just an arcade. It's 4 stories of great interactive fun and games. You can build your own roller coaster and ride it. You can take a virtual ride with the Pirates of the Caribbean. Or you can even plan a little Tron.
Want to go to the movies? The movie theater is an AMC 24 where you can not only watch all the latest from Hollywood, you can even get dinner. Dinner and a movie. What an idea.
What time does everything open? How about close? Inquiring minds want to know. Ok, here you go. Here are the hours from the stores, the restaurants and even some of the entertainment.
