    What's your favorite part of Downtown Disney?
    Do you love the shops, maybe Disneyquest, or a place to eat?

    Sitting on the dock beside the Margarita shack, in the evening. Bliss.

    I used to like it because it was a great place to get away from the crowds. Then I used to like it for The Adventurer's Club. Now I like it for Wolfgang Puck's express and his Butternut Squash soup.

    BTW, this is one the best deals in all of WDW for your counter service meal on the dining plan.

    Oh my gosh, I love the kitchen store and Goofy's Candy shop. I hit both of those shops several times. You don't want to know how much I spend on the toffee bars while there.

    We love the Christmas Store, Goofy's Candy Shoppe is a must as well.I can't remeber what the name of the big store near the Lego store that has a lot of kitchen items as well as clothes.

    It`s now become a tradition that on our first day we always have a coffee sitting outside Ghiradelli`s and watch the world go by.
    This is usually followed by lunch at the Earl of Sandwich, and afterwards a walk over to the West Side so that I can stock up on my magic tricks that I buy from the shop there.

    Awe, you've just reminded me, I was going to buy a magic trick from Universal Studios and forgot all about it. It was the levitating one - found it fascinating.

    My favorite part of DTD is Cirque Du Soleil, we love that show.

    I was still perfecting the art in those days John. :wiggle:


    I bought that one a couple of years ago Diane.
    It`s very effective although setting it up is a bit of a "faff" if you excuse the technical expression. :lol:
