    I am planning a half day at DTD. I need suggestions for what to do. 2 adults, have PH but not the "more" will have DDP. Is half day enough time? Did not see any downtown last trip.

    Hi, Ann!   I am a huge fan of Downtown Disney.   We always spend at least half a day visiting the shops and restaurants and even seeing a movie to escape if there is rain or to get out of the heat!

    Some of my Downtown Disney favorites:

    -Wolfgang Puck Express has great food, and can be used as one of your counter service meals on your meal plan.  Delicious salads, pizza, and pasta dishes.
    -La Nouba is an amazing Cirque du Soleil show with 2 shows each evening at 6pm and 9pm.
    -Characters in Flight is a helium balloon ride that takes you 400 feet into the air giving you breathtaking views of the entire Walt Disney World Resort.
    -World of Disney store is just huge and has so many Disney goodies!   Bring your Disney Visa for a discount (see store for details.)
    -Fulton's Crab House is nice for a seafood dinner
    -Treat yourself to Ghiradelli Soda Fountain & Chocolate Shop.   Need I say more here?!
    -Just relax!  Sit lake side and watch the boats and activity on Village Lake!

    I would plan on setting aside half a day for Downtown Disney, and if you find there is more to explore, stop back later in your vacation!   This is a great place to visit during your travel days since there is no admission cost and you can stay as short or as long as you want.     I hope you have a super time!
