There is still time to make plans to experience the special events being conducted in the Walt Disney World Resort in Central Florida in December, such as Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom Park, Holidays Around The World and Candlelight Processional at Epcot, and The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. It is also the ideal time to check out the transformed Disney Springs area, formerly known as the Downtown Disney area.
The new name took effect September 29, 2015 in recognition of the transitioning to the one-of-a-kind, reimagined Disney Springs, which features new shopping, dining and entertainment venues for your enjoyment. When work is completed in 2016, Disney Springs will have expanded to more than 150 shopping, dining and entertainment venues, in four distinct outdoor neighborhoods, with a high-quality, diverse mix of retailers, entertainment, upscale restaurants, and casual dining options.
A great way to experience these events and new offerings is by taking advantage of the special “Holiday Rates” that are being offered for stays through December 20, 2015 by the seven Disney Springs Resort Area Hotels, formerly known as the Downtown Disney Resort Area Hotels. In addition to their ideal location an easy walk to the shopping, dining and entertainment venues at Disney Springs, these seven “Official Walt Disney World Resort Hotels” also provide complimentary shuttle transportation every 30 minutes to all four Walt Disney World Theme Parks, two water parks, and to Disney Springs.
As a bonus, guests at these hotels also receive the “Downtown Disney Deals” booklet that features exclusive discounts and special offers from over 30 merchants in the Disney Springs area for dining, entertainment and shopping. Among the many coupons featured in the booklet are discounts at Rainforest Café, T-Rex Café, Wolfgang Puck Express, Steve Baker Caricatures, The LEGO Store, Planet Hollywood, House of Blues Restaurant, Splitsville Luxury Lanes, Bongo’s Cuban Café, and Ghirardelli Ice Cream & Chocolate Shop.
