    Hi! My 73 year old Disney loving mother is going to visit Disney Springs the day before I arrive. I need your magical tips to share with her about navigating DS without using MDE. Staying at Dolphin - thank you!

    Welcome back, friend! 

    We are so happy to hear from you again at planDisney, Danielle! We’re even more excited for your upcoming trip! Before you know it, you’ll be strolling Main Street, U.S.A. and eating all of the yummiest treats on earth! 

    Navigating Disney Springs will be a breeze for your Mouseketeer momma! Disney Springs has made transportation, navigation, and adventuring accessible for every Disney fan! 

    Here are a few points to help your mother enjoy her day at Disney Springs:

    -Encourage her to utilize the complimentary bus transportation to and from Disney Springs! The bus station from the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel is located just to the left of the front entrance! And the bus station at Disney Springs is centrally located! (Here’s a link to the Disney Springs Map & Directory!)

    -Let her know that there should be paper maps available for her to use when entering Disney Springs and that large, electronic maps/directories are conveniently scattered throughout the walkways of Disney Springs to help her get her bearings! Cast Members and additional employees are always more than happy to help Guests find their way as well! 

    -Here are a few shops I think your mom would love to wander during her Disney Springs adventure! The Art of Disney is a gallery-style art shop that fits every Disney style! Goofy’s Candy Company is an adorably themed must-stop for any Guest with a sweet tooth! Lovepop is one of my new favorite shops featuring stunning 3D cards! Marketplace Co-Op is another must-see with countless shops under one roof! And no trip to Disney Springs would be complete without a stroll through World of Disney®! You and your mother can browse the official list of shops as well for additional ideas on where she’d like to spend time! 

    -As for food, here’s the list of dining locations available at Disney Springs! For a little entertainment, and a whole lot of good food, I’d recommend making a Dining Reservation for Raglan Road™ Irish Pub and Restaurant! This restaurant is a crowd favorite for all ages! 

    I hope your mom has an incredible day at Disney Springs! I’m sure she’ll want to take you back to show you all of the fabulous stops she finds along her way! If you have any additional questions, we’d be thrilled to hear from you again at planDisney! 

    See ya real soon!
