Wherever we go on holiday I am always keen to find out the best breakfast spots – or brunch spots if we’re getting up late or having a longer day. Whilst planning our upcoming trip to Florida we decided to visit Disney Springs for breakfast. But what options does Disney Springs have for breakfast and brunch?
What is Disney Springs?
If you’re skipping the Disney Cruise Line this year and heading for Walt Disney World, Disney Springs is a great place to visit during your vacation. A popular place from morning through to late night on any Disney trip, it’s a real social, dining and shopping hub that all ages can enjoy. With dozens of shops and restaurants as well as plenty of things to do, it’s somewhere you can happily go with friends and family for anything from a couple of hours to a full day of time together.
Easily accessible from all around the Orlando area, Disney Springs has plenty of free, covered parking and is a wonderful place to spend time. You can wander around, look in the shops, see a movie or grab a coffee and watch the world go by. It makes a nice change from the Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and the other Walt Disney Company theme parks.
