There’s Something Special about Spring at Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort

The first official day of spring is Sunday, but already, the season seems well underway.  Below are just a few reasons why we love visiting Disney Springs this time of year, in no particular order:


Flowers and Displays – From a new installation featuring character statues from “Zootopia” to the bold pink blooms scattered throughout the property, there is so much beauty to behold. We may be biased, but we think our flowers are among the prettiest at Walt Disney World Resort (and they make a great photo backdrop)!


Spring Hats – Easter and hats go hand in hand. Same for spring and fashion. At Chapel Hats, you can check all the boxes with sophisticated headwear that’s always in style.


Special Sweets – St. Patrick’s Day is Thursday and The Ganachery is celebrating with limited edition Irish Cream Liquor Ganache with Milk Chocolate and Stout Ganache with Dark Chocolate through the holiday. Next up are Easter lollipops featuring a new coconut flavor, set to debut on March 19th.


A Bountiful Brunch – While some Disney Springs locations offer brunch year-round (the House of Blues Gospel Brunch is every Sunday and the Rollicking Raglan Bruch now takes place on both weekend days), on Easter, many additional restaurants offer something unique. This year, The Wolfgang Puck Dining Room, Portobello, Fulton’s Crab House, House of Blues and Bongos will all feature a special Easter menu.

In just a couple of months, Town Center will open alongside the springs of Disney Springs, giving us even more to look forward to! In the meantime, I’m enjoying all that exists now – from World of Disney at the Marketplace to the amazing new acts at La Nouba by Cirque du Soleil on the West Side. No matter the season, there’s something for everyone to enjoy during a day at Disney Springs.
