    arriving at all star movie resort 6-6-10 dont have tickets til the next day beside the pool what else can we do for the afternoon can we get into downtown disney without tickets that include a 3 year old princess thanks

    Hi, Kimberly!  There is no admission fee for Downtown Disney, so you can absolutely enjoy the area without having to purchase tickets.  Mostly shops and restaurants, there is still quite a bit that would interest your three year old.

    My girls have always loved browsing the World of Disney shop and the Once Upon a Toy shop.  If we are going early in our trip, we always tell them ahead of time that the trip is just for looking, as there will be so many other things to see before they decide what souvenir they want.  But they still enjoy looking at the many things they have to offer.  We also usually get a cold drink or an ice cream and let them sit by the beach and enjoy a treat. 

    In June, when the weather is going to be warm, you'll see quite a few kids playing in the fountain at Downtown Disney.  You might want to bring dry clothes just in case!

    There are a couple of ride on things that you can pay to ride, and a stop at Goofy's Candy Company is a must for my girls, so they have a snack to take back to the room with them for later.  You could also take in a movie at the Pleasure Island AMC.

    You'll find some great restaurants at Downtown Disney, including T-Rex and Rainforest Cafe, plus one of my favorite places to grab a quick bite, the Earl of Sandwich.  Top the evening off with Ghiradelli's chocolate shop for a sundae or some decadent chocolate candy.

    Have a wonderful vacation!
