Disney Springs offers a wide variety of entertainment for the whole family. The littlest guests will enjoy a ride on the carousel or the mini train, while parents will enjoy all the live music available at the restaurants and on the Waterside Stage. Many Walt Disney World visitors like to plan a day to explore here or even just come for the evening after the theme parks have closed. An afternoon at Splitsville Luxury Lanes can be a fun way to pass the time or enjoy dinner and a show at the AMC Dine-in movie theaters.
