Disney Springs, formerly known as Downtown Disney, is an outdoor shopping, dining and entertainment complex at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Orlando, Florida. It opened on March 22, 1975. Disney Springs is open to public, requires no admission fee, and offers complimentary parking and transportation to all Disney-operated Walt Disney World resorts. The main theme of Disney Springs is that it was a town that was built on top of a water spring. This spring was just recently added to the area. The large outdoor complex is divided into three areas: the Marketplace, Pleasure Island and the West Side.
Each area features a selection of entertainment venues, shops, and restaurants with unique themes. Notable tenants include Cirque du Soleil's La Nouba, the House of Blues, Planet Hollywood, the Lego Imagination Center, World of Disney, AMC Pleasure Island 24, and Rainforest Cafe which Disney's Animal Kingdom also has.
