This was my first trip in 2017. I joined hubby to the meetings and had short vacation ; little escape from cold ❄
When we landed, I could feel humidity and warm of Orlando sun. On the way to hotel I saw high buildings, tropical trees and traffic, I told to my hubby “Its feel like home, Jakarta” and he smiled “The buildings are not as high as Jakarta tho”. After on the road for 50 minutes we reached hotel, It was a really nice hotel, make me really feel this is the vacation 😍. (Not as usual He had meeting the hotel is more like the business hotel).
We stayed for 6 days and in 2 days hubby attended meeting, so I had me time. First day of meeting I went to Disney Springs, it is pretty close to hotel -+10 minute by taxi and cost $ 20.
OMG!! After 7 months I have not gone to big mall, visiting Disney Springs make me cheery, it was not because I missed mall, but the atmosphere at Disney Springs was really pleasant, an outdoor shopping centre ; Disney entertainment, shopping and restaurants.
There are at least 110 shopping options and 55 dining options, but these top 5 reasons why I like Disney Springs:
I’m typically scared of height but as I reached Disney Springs I can’t take my eyes off that big balloon and suddenly I have the courage to ride the balloon. 10 minutes later I rode the Balloon, ascending 400 feet in the air, I hovered for about 10 minutes, experiencing breathtaking 360-degree stunning vistas up to 10 miles away views of the Disney Springs area and I could see Epcot ball too. It was windy so they only 6 guests per flight, at normal weather they will allow up to 29 plus one pilot. It made me little nervous when wind came up and little bumpy indeed it was incredible experience for $ 18.
Mickey Pantry is kinda a small shop but has unique touch of disney home and kitchen products.
When I saw this store, I whispered to myself ” Yay Christmas stuff on discount as Christmas season already ended, so I can buy cheap discount Christmas stuff” but when I wondered around the store NO discount at all for those pretty Christmas decorations 😅. Because it always Christmas and celebrate Christmas all year-long at Disney Springs.
This is my favorite shop at Disney Springs, all Disney collection are all there. 12 rooms brimming with : Gifts & Housewares; Apparel, Jewelry & Accessories; Toys & Plush; Camera & Media and Mickey Ears, all Disney characters have all their own spot 😍💛. I am not a number one fans of Disney but I was there for at least 3,5 hours and skipped my lunch .
Actually you also can visit https://m.disneystore.com for online shopping but if you visit the store it give you different sensation & happiness 😍.
The Art of Disney is an interesting store, full of works of art that inhabit this shop. For this little shop I spent at least 40 minutes just to say Wow, Wow and Wow for the impressive arts there.
I had wonderful time at Disney Springs; first day by myself & 2nd short one with hubby 💛 Btw me and hubby were really good teamwork He worked and I shopped 😄.
I would love to share more Disney story on my next blog.
