Disney Tails, Lovepop and More Opening at Disney Springs This Fall

From the Disney Parks Blog:

(Photo: Disney Parks Blog)

With over 100 stores already open at Disney Springs, it’s hard to imagine we have room for any more. But great news for shoppers like me – we do! Soon, three new venues, including Disney Tails and Lovepop, will be added to the property’s eclectic mix of niche boutiques and brand-name anchor locations, just in time for holiday shopping.

Here’s a preview of what’s to come:

(Photo: Disney Parks Blog)

Disney Tails: Opening October 12, 2018 at Marketplace Co-Op, this is THE must-visit destination for pet owners who want to bring a bit of Disney flair home to their four-legged friends. With two existing character collections (Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse) and two new character collections (Haunted Mansion and Star Wars) set to debut when the store opens, you may want to wait to finalize Fido’s Halloween costume until you’ve had a chance to visit – the themed comfort harnesses are just too cute! While most of the items were designed with dogs in mind, there are a few items that are “purr”fect for cats, too! In addition to leashes, collars, and bandanas, you’ll also discover squeaky toys inspired by some of your favorite iconic Disney foods, because really, it’s not fair that only humans should get to indulge in Mickey waffles, Mickey ice cream bars and Mickey pretzels, right?

(Photo: Disney Parks Blog)

Lovepop: Steps away, in the center of Marketplace Co-Op, a new kind of greeting card will be arriving in mid-October. Lovepop is “more than a card” – it’s an intricate 3D paper sculpture designed on cutting-edge software, then hand-assembled with impeccable craftsmanship. I fell in love with the brand during a recent trip to New York City and was overjoyed when I found out they’d be coming to Disney Springs. Each piece is a gorgeous keepsake and with options for nearly every occasion imaginable, you’re bound to find something just right for the ones you love most.

The Art of Disney Presents Greg McCullough: Slated to open on November 3, 2018 in the space formerly occupied by Little Miss Matched, an art gallery featuring works by Greg McCullough – a fan-favorite when it comes to paintings of Disney characters and stories – will open for a limited-time engagement through January 1, 2019. Greg McCullough will appear every day, except Mondays, from 1:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and guests will have a chance to interact with the artist, have artwork signed, and possibly even catch him painting live. Original works of art, limited-editions, and prints will be available, alongside some unique pieces from his Disney Remnants and Abstract Remnants Collections – mosaic collections created by recycling unused oil pant.

As if all of this wasn’t enough, Basin, one of the most beloved brands at Disney Springs, is putting the finishing touches on a refurbishment of their store. With a mid-October completion date, the location will feel familiar but with lighter, brighter, fresh touches that will open up the space in a more modern way.

With so much newness on the horizon, who’s ready to get a head start on holiday gift purchases and join me on a shopping trip to Disney Springs?

Top Five Restaurants for Outdoor Dining at Disney Springs

(Photo: Disney Parks Blog)

One of the best things about Florida is the sunshine waiting for you all year round. It makes Disney World a great place to enjoy al fresco dining options, especially at Disney Springs. Fresh air and fresh food are a winning combination! These five restaurants make for delicious outdoor dining at Disney Springs.

The BOATHOUSE: With picture-perfect views of Lake Buena Vista, you’ll love dining on deck at The BOATHOUSE. Whether you choose a standard table, a high top or the comfy patio furniture (yes, you can get served there, too!), be sure to try the lobster roll. On a warm day, it’s not too heavy in spite of the whole Maine lobster used in every roll, and don’t even get me started about how amazing their French fries are! To drink? A nice IPA fits the bill, but for something extra-refreshing, sip on the Cucumber Cooler.

Frontera Cocina by Chef Rick Bayless at Disney Springs™ will delight friends, family and food-lovers with exciting flavors and a contemporary Mexican experience. Warm colors, an open kitchen and a lively atmosphere frame an inviting exploration of the many delights from the kitchen of six-time James Beard Foundation Awards Winner, Chef Rick Bayless.

(Photo: Disney Parks Blog)

Frontera Cocina: A table here gives you a front row seat to one of the best looks at the springs of Disney Springs. Right over the water, you’re almost guaranteed to feel the cool breeze in your hair as you sip your margarita and savor every bite of freshly made hummus, a nice alternative to the equally delicious guacamole. Of course, you’ll also find tacos, tortas and an array of entrees by celebrity chef Rick Bayless, but on a warm day, nothing on the menu beats their Taqueria Salad with Mojo garlic grilled shrimp.

(Photo: Disney Parks Blog)

Paddlefish: The third story deck of Paddlefish is one of the best kept secrets at Disney Springs. If you haven’t yet found your way to the open-air rooftop of this iconic paddleboat-inspired seafood restaurant, put it on your “to-do” list. For a special evening out, order the Seafood Tower – everything is fresh and chilled to just the right temperature. The drinks are divine, too … grab a group of friends and treat yourself to a carafe of perfect-for-spring house-made red sangria with Framboise, Crème de Mure, orange juice, tempranillo, and seasonal fruit.

(Photo: Disney Parks Blog)

Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant: For more than a decade, the patio at this authentic Irish pub has been dazzling guests with incredible entertainment on their outdoor stage, all the while serving their full menu of favorites to guests lucky enough to snag an outside table. While you can certainly experience patio dining seven days a week, think about booking a brunch reservation with options like the “Full Irish” (a full Irish breakfast, naturally), “Ellis Isle Steak’n Eggs” and “Pancakes Diaspora”—all pair nicely with the Strawberry Fields Mimosa.

(Photo: Disney Parks Blog)

STK Orlando: A favorite for late-night, STK Orlando is another great spot for dinner and drinks under the stars (and beneath ambience-adding string lights)! While steak is what they’re known for, and rightly so, the Buratta Salad is delicious, too. Cocktails abound, but for an appealing accompaniment, order a glass of the Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc, a vibrant, peppery white wine with bold fruit and floral notes.

Date night for two, girls’ brunch, family lunch … whatever the occasion, Disney Springs is the place to enjoy it, especially now with the incredible Central Florida weather!

House of Blues Gospel Brunch: Taking place on Sundays at 10:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m., the World Famous Gospel Brunch is a one-of-a-kind experience that puts the spotlight on local talent and southern specialties. Traditional and contemporary Gospel songs just may move you to wave a napkin and dance off some of their delicious cuisine (speaking from experience, here), including biscuits & gravy, fried catfish, peel and eat shrimp, chicken & waffles, honey baked ham, roast beef and much, much more.

Paddlefish: Come aboard and enjoy classic brunch favorites like the popular Crab & Asparagus Benedict or the mouthwatering Monte Cristo. Both pair nicely with a glass of the Southern Sangria, a house favorite.

Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant: The Rollicking Raglan Brunch is offered every Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. and features authentic Irish music, food, drink and live entertainment. With brunch entrees ranging from $8-$26, the menu is brimming with Irish taste treats including the Full Irish Breakfast, Pancakes Diaspora with crème fraiche, maple syrup and berry compote, and Smoked Salmon Potato Cakes, to name a few. If you prefer “lunch” fare, the slow-roasted Guinness-glazed Rack of Heaven baby back ribs, Lobster Club and famous Shepherd’s Pie are among their best sellers. Plus, dancers and live music will keep you entertained throughout your meal.

STK Orlando: Most days you can order a la carte, and while STK is always known for their superb steaks, it would be a mistake to leave without trying their Cinnamon Monkey Bread.
