Downtown Disney

Downtown Disney is Disney's 120 acre answer to night-time entertainment for older visitors - plus daytime shopping, dining and fun for families of all ages.

Downtown Disney consists of three distinct districts

The first is the original Disney Village Marketplace. This area consists of the marina and several shops. The largest Disney store in the world, The World of Disney, is located here.

Next to the Marketplace is Pleasure Island and by day this section is a busy shopping center with lots to see and do (we particularly recommend dining at Fulton's Crab House).

At night Pleasure Island's several nightclubs open appealing to various music and comedy tastes. We should also point out that New Year's Eve is celebrated every night at Pleasure Island!

The third section is the Downtown Disney West Side. This is the newest section and consists of several restaurants, shops, DisneyQuest, a 24 theatre movie complex, and Cirque du Soleil.

Opening Times
Shops are open from 9:00am through 11:00pm. Entertainment and restaurants open later (see individual pages for more information).

Directions
Guests staying at VillaDirect vacation homes should follow the Highway 192 as far as Disney World Drive and then follow the signposts for Downtown Disney.

Parking
Parking is free at all Downtown Disney areas. However, the car parks around Downtown Disney Westside and Pleasure Island are particularly busy at night, and you may wish to take advantage of the valet parking facility at each area (it's worth the money to save your legs!).
