    Besides shopping, what other kid friendly activities are there for a 4 yr old and 7 yr old at Downtown Disney?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Amanda!

    My family loves Downtown Disney. In addition to all the awesome shops & great places to eat, here are some things your children may enjoy:

    * Marketplace Carousel
    * Marketplace Train Express
    * Characters In Flight (Tethered Balloon)
    * AMC Downtown Disney 24 & Dine-In Theaters
    * Splitsville (upscale bowling)
    * DisneyQuest (indoor interactive rides & games)
    * La Nouba Cirque du Soleil
    * LEGO Imagination Center (they have lots of fun activities here)
    * Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique
    * Rawlings Making the Game located inside Team Mickey (see how they make baseball bats)
    * RIDEMAKERZ (build radio controlled vehicles)
    * Once Upon A Toy (yes its a shop but you can still play with Mr. Potato Head and other cool toys)

    Be sure to stop by the Waterside Stage beside the World of Disney. They often have live performances during the day. In the summer months there are fountains near Once Upon A Toy that kids love to splash around in.
    At night, Downtown Disney springs to life. In the Marketplace Area, there is usually some sort of live music in front of Fulton's Crab House that the whole family can enjoy. Be sure to stop by the Waterside Stage. Depending on the time of the year you visit, they may have live performances or a DJ Kids Dance Party.

    You can usually find live music in front of Wetzel's Pretzels on the West Side.

    Just before you head out of the Pleasure Island section towards the West Side, we've often seen "live statutes" and other fun entertainment so be sure to stroll through that area.

    You can pick up a Times Guide at Downtown Disney merchandise & Guest Relations locations that will list some of the Entertainment hours.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions. We're hEAR for you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
