When you think of Disney Springs, you likely think of dining at a delicious restuarant or shopping for magical Disney merchandise. It makes sense that these activities are the first thing to come to mind as there are 103 shopping locations and 54 dining options at Disney Springs. Even though eating and shopping are the main events, there is so much more to do at Disney’s outdoor complex. Here is our list of the 5 things to do at Disney Springs that aren’t shopping and dining!

1. See a Movie

At AMC’s Disney Springs location, you can see the latest movie releases, and not just Disney’s newest films! AMC Disney Springs 24 Dine-In Theatres offers ones of the highest quality movie going experiences. 6 of the 24 theaters are dine-in with plush, reclining seats. There is also a Dolby Cinema theater which features powerful image and sound technologies along with comfortable chairs that lay back.

Bowling is a fun activity for all ages which makes it a perfect experience to add to your Disney vacation. Splitsville Luxury Lanes is a 2 floor bowling alley with a retro-glam, yet modern aesthetic. Billiards and live music can also be found at Splitsville. As you bowl, you can grab a bite to eat from their menu of fresh sushi, pizza, burgers, and other shareable snacks. Reserve your lane online or call (407) 938-7467.
