Downtown Disney

We enjoyed visiting Downtown Disney so much. It was a nice break from the parks and a great place to do some shopping and eating :) There is a wonderful World of Disney store which is huge....we purchased a few souvenirs there :) We enjoyed dinner at Ragland Road one night. It was a really neat Irish pub that was know for it's "fish and chips" which were wonderful.

We also visited and played at Legoland while there. Legoland had stations of legos that the kids could play with...we easily spent an hour there while the kids built and looked around. There were also huge sculptures made out of legos...there was a shark/crab/fish, a family walking their dogs, the lochness monster, a dinosaur and a transformer. It was so neat!

There is also a Ghirardelli store there! One side has a coffee shop and ice cream store while the other side you can purchase their wonderful chocolates! They give free samples out too....I was lucky to find they were giving out their milk chocolate squares filled with caramel one day :) We indulged in banana splits both trips down there!

There were hot air balloon rides there also and next time we are so doing that!

I didn't know there was a Legoland at Disney...that will add to the thrills whenever we get to take the boys. Very cool!

Super cool! Legoland looks amazing. I have enjoyed seeing your pictures. Keep them coming! We would love to take the boys next year. Trying to figure out if we can or not. If you learned any good money-saving tips, please send them along. Also, give tips on where you stayed, meal plan, etc. Glad you guys had a great time!
