We sometimes focus on the parks and hotels around Disney World, but did you know that some of the BEST food and merchandise can be found at Disney Springs?
This shopping center has Disney gift shops as well as other popular stores, amazing restaurants (some with celebrity chefs), and even a few attractions. We headed down to the Springs to check out what’s new in this area, including food, merchandise, and any other updates we spot along the way.
Let’s start out with obviously the most important thing — the food.
Disney Springs Food Updates
First, we had their Mimosa Sorbet (which isn’t actually a seasonal item, it just looked too delicious to pass up). This treat was delicious. It’s made with Terra Di Baco Prosecco and orange flavors, and there’s a little candy orange slice on top for the garnish. It was super refreshing and light, which was great for the warm day.
Our gelato was $7.75.
We also tried the Pumpkin Waffle, which is a Pumpkin Waffle topped with vanilla gelato, whipped cream, and brown sugar. This was a BIG portion, and we thought all the elements were delicious. There wasn’t a ton of pumpkin flavor in the waffle, though — it tasted more like fall spices to us.
The Pumpkin Waffle was $12 (and it’s definitely share-able).
Our last treat was the biggest winner, in our opinion. It’s the Mocha Caramel Bombolato, which is a warm Italian donut, filled with coffee gelato, chocolate chips, and caramel sauce. As you might expect from that description, this was VERY tasty. The coffee flavor came through strongly, and the cold gelato against the warm donut was pure heaven. The bombolato was $9.75.
At the Wondermade Gourmet Marshmallow stand, we found a few more fall-flavored treats.
There were some new specialty flavors, including Pumpkin Spice…
…and Apple Cinnamon. Each pack comes with 16 marshmallows.
And rounding out our search for sweets, we stopped by The Ganachery to check out any new offerings.
And we weren’t disappointed! There are new Annual Passholder chocolates available, this time with the AP logo on the front.
We’ve seen other Annual Passholder-exclusives here, like the Orange Bird chocolates from a couple of months ago. So if you’re a passholder, you can head down now to buy these chocolates.
To wash down all the sugar, we stopped by the huge Coca-Cola Store in Disney Springs. We found out that most of the international sodas from Club Cool (the soda-tasting attraction in Disney’s EPCOT park) are on tap here!
Since we’re big fans of the refreshing Cucumber Sprite from Russia (which you can find at Club Cool too), we got a full drink of that.
Club Cool in EPCOT is free, but there’s a paid option to taste a bunch of international sodas at the Coca-Cola store as well. You do get twice as many flavors at the Coca-Cola store, and most of the Club Cool flavors are included (except for Korea’s Joy flavor).
On our way out, we tried some Coca-Cola Tic Tacs.
The little candies are so cute with the Coke logo!
All full of sweets and soda, we made our way to the shops to check out the new merchandise.
Disney Springs Merchandise Update
It’s practically mandatory to stop by World of Disney if you go to Disney Springs. This is a HUGE gift shop with all kinds of merchandise.
They were $24.99. Pro tip: these ears make your shadow look awesome.
We headed to the Vera Bradley store next to check out the new Castle Collection.
There was a pink tote bag with a Cinderella Castle decal on the front for $145.
We also saw some backpacks in this collection, including a pink one…
…and a silver one. Both were $160 and featured the Castle decal as well.
Now let’s see if there are any other updates around the Springs.
Disney Springs Construction Update
Walking around the Springs, we spotted a couple of fun Halloween photo ops! One was at the Coca-Cola Rooftop Beverage Bar. It has some fruit-themed Halloween characters with fun signs that you can pose next to.
And another was spotted over by the Disney’s Days of Christmas store. This one had a 31 Nights of Halloween theme (a seasonal event with 31 different Halloween movies on the Freeform streaming service), with some jack-o-lanterns and candy on the side.
