Insiders Tips to fun at Downtown Disney

Living in Orlando I have become the go to advisor for vacations.  I want to share with all of you some of my tips for select areas in Orlando.  The first destination I am going to tackle is Downtown Disney.  Downtown Disney is a free to park and free to enter area on Disney property.  Currently they are going through a lot of construction for improvements but if Downtown Disney is on your list of stops here are some things to know.
1.  Parking is a mess- they are currently building some parking garages which have limited the available parking
2.  They have closed a lot of spots to make way for their Spring arrival of Disney Springs
3.  There are a lot of construction dividers everywhere.

Things to do with Kids
When we go to Downtown Disney there are some can't miss activities.  There is a Lego store
and Once upon a toy
that is always on our agenda.  At the Trex restaurant
there is a Dino dig area and it is a fun place for the kids to play.  Trex and Rainforest Cafe are both fun interactive places to eat.  There is also a train and carousel on site to enjoy.

Things to Enjoy with Older Children and Adults
Splitsville is a great bowling alley that is definitely more adult than kid.
House of Blues is a concert venue on site and if you time it right you can catch a great show.
 Disney Quest is an interactive gaming paradise with simulated games and the games are Disney themed.  The price is $45/person 10+ and $39 for children.  They also have
Cirque de Soliel which is basically a modern day circus minus the animals.  Watch in amazement at what these performers are capable of.

Can't miss Food Spots
T-Rex Restaurant -Dinosaur themed restaurant that is lots of fun
Earl of Sandwich- excellent quick dinning option
Raglan Road- if you happen to be there later on in the evening there is irish entertainment and it is so fun

As you can see there is something for everyone.
