    I found city walk very loud, I do like some of the restaurants though. Can't see myself visiting there unless we are staying on site so DTD for me

    Between the two, definately DTD for us. Home to our fave show in Florida - Cirque du Soleil. Also for me, you can't beat The World of Disney shop :)

    Never been to City Walk so I guess that means DTD wins by default.

    Well I find DTD really limited. Sure world of Disney is great for Disney merchandise and planet hollywood can be fun at midnight with a dj etc but other than that there's just not that much to DO any more :/

    Citywalk is jarring if you come from Disney because it's so vibrant and busy. It's not got that Disney feel for sure, BUT what it does have are lots of really good restaurants, bars, entertainment all into the night.

    Disney COULD, if they wanted to, extend a more adult oriented, but still Disneyfied, experience later into the night but they're just interested in families (ie. kids) and seem content to leave the adult dollars to wander out to Universal.

    Truly, after 10pm I struggle to think of anything open in Disney other than the occasional park late closing and planet hollywood. I know families may be tucked up in bed by that time for an early morning park start but I'm a night owl/vampire (depending who you ask) and I'm nowhere near finished by 10pm!

    I agree with Keith. Disney needs to spice up the night again.

    I'm waiting to see what the new DTD is like. Donna and I aren't generally night owls anyway.

    Keith, if ever I am in Florida at the same time as you, then you must come out with Ricky and us one night. It was around 2.00am when we made it back home after such a night a couple of years ago. ....and we went to places way off the tourist trail !
