Downtown Disney is an outdoor shopping, dining, and entertainment area located at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. Until 1989, only the Marketplace existed and was known as the Disney Village Marketplace, and before that, the Lake Buena Vista Shopping Village. Pleasure Island then opened, and the West Side followed in 1997. Pleasure Island and Marketplace were referred to together as Disney Village until West Side opened, at which point the entire area was collectively renamed Downtown Disney.
These photographs were shot in Downtown Disney on December 26, 2007. Downtown is a neat place to visit but be pre-warned it is a tourist trap designed to take your money. There are many places to eat like the Rainforest Cafe, a little expensive also but worth it to see the inside and experience the indoor storms. The area is also filled with entertainment for young and old and if you want to shop for Disney items this is your place. They have Poohs Corner, Team Mickey Athletic Club, Mickey's Pantry, Goofy's Candy Company and Shane's favorite a Lego store where millions of Lego's are out just waiting for you to build something right there.
Time for a font size change on my blogs, my eyes are getting bad and it makes them much easier to read.
