This place has it allAtmosphere, restaurants, Sports Bar, Tons of shops and a Movie Theater. I could spend all day there...if I could afford it. True they don't charge to enter Downtown Disney, but the parking alone can make you go broke. True, the first three hours are free, and they validate 2 hours at the AMC, However, considering I have to wait for 50 min for a table, dinning can be about 2 ? hours. Anything more than dinner and a movie can be hazardous to your wallet. The parking is $6 and hour so shop quickly and eat fast. I had dinner, watched ? a game @ ESPN Zone and a movie, when it was time to get out I had to pay $18. Not a good way to end the day. My Tip: Go for no more than 3-4 hours.
Pros: A Variety of Shops, Good Restaurants, Nice Movie Theater
Cons: long Restaurant lines, EXPENSIVE Parking
