    On our arrival day we would like to visit either Disney Springs or Disney Boardwalk. We have boys age 8 & 10, which would you recommend. We want to make reservations early. What restaurant should we visit for dinner that night?

    Hey there, Lizette! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I’m glad you brought us your question! 

    It’s a tradition for my family to visit Disney Springs upon arriving at the Walt Disney World Resort. Have you visited Disney Springs lately? If you haven’t, you are up for a pleasant surprise! Disney Springs has recently undergone a massive expansion and the shopping and dining options are vast and exciting! 

    Depending on your time of arrival, I would suggest trying to do both! Try making an early dining reservation at the newly re-imagined Planet Hollywood Observatory or at T-REX ™ where dining is an adventure from another time! After dinner, head on over to Disney’s BoardWalk for a delicious ice cream dessert at Ample Hills Creamery! My favorite treat there is the create your own Sunday with the Ooey Gooey Butter Cake! Yum! Afterward, you could maybe catch a movie under the stars right there at the resort or even rent a surrey bike and take a ride down the BoardWalk and enjoy all the sights

    I hope you enjoy visiting Disney Springs and Disney’s BoardWalk. I’m sure it will be a wonderful start to a magical vacation! 

    Be sure to come back and see us again soon!
