    We love to spend some time walking around Downtown Disney. The kids love the Lego store with all of the huge Lego structures outside. I really like the World of Disney store. They have great items. My daughter loved going to the Bippiddi Boppidi Boo Boutique to have her hair and makeup styled as a princess. There seems to be something for everyone. Oh, and the Ghiradelli's ice cream shop is awesome!!! A definite must. :yay:

    We normally do DTD after a day at the waterparks, grab something to eat, let DS go to his happy place .....Lego Store. We have done DisneyQuest a couple times and enjoyed it. I am surprised no one has mentioned Wolfgang Puck Express, worth a trip to DTD IMHO.

    I love to spend the nights in DTD after the park I was in closes. I love to shop so besides EPCOT this is my favorite shopping area. If you've never been, you should check it out at least once. :cutie:

    All resorts have buses to/ from Downtown Disney. How are you getting to 'Ohana?

    Would you say DTD is a good thing to do on arrival day? We'll be arriving around 4, 5 pm (no kids on this trip), would you recommend going to DTD/Boardwalk or should we head into a park to see what we can do?

    I love wandering around Downtown Disney. For me, it is almost like a mini park.

    My wife and I went to Lakeland for her to meet my grandma, aunt, and uncle for the first time a few years ago. We had no intentions of going to Orlando. We were at their house about 3 hours and bored to death. We decided to take a "short drive around" to check out the surrounding area. An hour away is still considered surrounding area right? We spent a few hours at DTD and then went back to the hotel and got on the laptop and booked a Disney trip for a few months later.

    i second the Wolfgang Puck Express. We went there last year and had the best meal of the trip. Ended up going the day of check out just to eat there one more time. Portions are large. Food is fresh. Staff was kind and helpful. Definitely a great place and I typically only do table service.

    While this is considered counter service they actually bring most of the food to your table.

    Two thumbs up...but not way up.....I don't want word to get out how great it is and we won't be able to get a table next time. :rotfl2:

    We love DTD!:goodvibes We love to eat (Wolfgang Puck: downstairs) there. The shops are fantastic. Our last visit we stayed at POR and took the boat to DTD. That was an experience in itself. The kids (and adults) loved it. My son feel in love the the Lego store. There is something for everyone. ;) That said I would not choose it over one of the the parks. It's a nice half a day adventure and different atmosphere but nothing like the parks IMO.:thumbsup2
