This post was written as part of the We Grow Retreat Experience. All opinions are my own.
One of our favorite places to hang out and explore when not in Disney Parks is Disney Springs. There is so much to see, do, and buy while you’re there. Whether you’re hopping over for a quick bite to eat, meeting up with friends, or shopping, there is something for everyone.
The Newest Additions to Disney Springs
A first-of-its-kind destination, the NBA experience invites fans of all ages to enter the world of professional basketball in an immersive and interactive two-story venue that celebrates the NBA and WNBA. With 13 basketball-themed activities, it’s the perfect place to experience the NBA like never before.
Keep an eye out for new Instagram Walls throughout Walt Disney World. The latest one is this cute one with Orange Bird.
