    i seem not to find time for shopping ! what is the best way to fit shopping in my vacation plans ? and what is the best time of the day to visit Disney springs ?

    Hi Nour! With Disney Springs growing daily it is the best place on property to fill your shopping needs. Not only can you find your best Disney souvenirs but now you can pick up a new pair of Uggs or perhaps the Coach purse you have been watching. On top of that it is THE place to go for great food and sweets. My favorite dessert is a Sprinkles cupcake and no worries if the shop is closed as they have a convenient ATM outside where you can easily grab your favorite flavor. New restaurants open all the time and you can find anything from fine dining Asian, seafood and steaks, or pizza and burgers and much more.

    Now that you know it is where you want to go let me suggest some good times to fit it into a busy schedule. I love heading there on our arrival day. Wasting a park ticket on the day you come is hard since you likely won't be there more then a few hours versus a whole day. I suggest Disney Springs to many guests as you can get into your vacation without stress and find great dining on that first night. And don't forget if you want some action you can always try some bowling at Splitsville or take in a movie at the AMC Theater.

    I also suggest a Disney Springs day mid vacation when you need a break from parks. Put it into the plans and use it as your pool/shopping day. If you don't have a free day for that then plan an evening after a park to go for dinner. I suggest your Animal Kingdom day or Hollywood Studios day as both of those parks at this time can be done in less time then the other two parks.

    Your final good option is your check out day if you have a later flight. Store your bags at your resort after checking out and head to Disney Springs to finish shopping and again some great dining.

    The least crowded times in Disney Springs are the morning hours but yet it is tons of fun at night with so much energy around so any time is a good time for a visit!
