    We will be arriving in the afternoon to our disney hotel, since we won't have enough time for a park, we just want to go exploring around (shopping, dinner). Can we go to the marketplace or the west side for example, without park tickets?

    Hello Armida!

    Great news!  You don't need to have park tickets to visit and enjoy the gorgeous (and incredibly fun) Disney Springs.

    I absolutely LOVE going to Disney Springs...there is so much to do!  The shopping is terrific; in fact, you can find alot of unique shops with some pretty amazing merchandise.  I will admit that my husband gets nervous when I tell him I'm going for a visit.  The restaurants are terrific too!  My family and I really enjoy visiting Splitsville for a night of bowling and dinner (the sushi and the burgers are crazy good), but my absolute favorite restaurant at Disney Springs is Morimoto Asia.  You've got to try it!  If you do, please order the rib appetizer...they're so good I dream about them!  

    Please visit for more information.  Thanks so much for visiting the Moms Panel. Have a magical day!

Magic Kingdom still takes my breath away, but my favorite place to be is on a Disney ship looking at the horizon and breathing in that crisp, clean ocean air!  I love planning Disney vacations for others and making sure it's more than they dreamed. Learn More About Marisol
