Earlier today, Pam shared some cool news from several Disney Springs’ dining spots. Now, we’ve got even more to share, including an update that we’re once again hosting our “Beat the Heat DJ Dance Party” at the Disney Springs Marketplace.
“Beat the Heat DJ Dance Party” is a summer-inspired dance party featuring family-friendly music and the iconic Marketplace Fun Fountains. The party takes place daily 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in between Earl of Sandwich and Once Upon a Toy. And then, once the sun begins to set, the fountains are turned off for the ultimate nighttime dance party – 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
Here are some other cool summertime surprises for you to enjoy at Disney Springs:
Ghirardelli Ice Cream & Chocolate Shop is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the iconic “Summer of Love” in San Francisco, California and offering the Haight Ash’berry’ sundae (hot fudge sundae with seasonal berries, topped with whipped cream and a dark chocolate blueberry square) for a limited time only. If you purchase this sundae, you’ll receive a flower crown and heart shaped sunglasses.
Amorette’s Patisserie is now offering Sparkling Hibiscus Lemonade for summertime guests. This refreshing drink can also receive a splash of liquor for those looking to enjoy a spirited beverage.
#ThrowbackThursday at Dockside Margaritas in the Marketplace is already underway at Disney Springs. Every Thursday through September 28, 2017, four drinks will be featured, all at a special “throwback” price. Look for your favorite blast from the past cocktail, such as the Kungaloosh from Adventurer’s Club and the Bell Bottom from 8Trax. The non-alcoholic Emil’s Strawberry Colada from Adventurer’s Club will also be offered every Thursday for kids (of all ages) to enjoy.
Coca-Cola Store Rooftop Beverage Bar is offering a wide variety of Coca-Cola flavors this summer, in addition to an array of cocktails, mocktails, smoothies and ice cream floats. Here, you can sip on the ‘Coca-Cola Tastes of the World’ and enjoy a selection of Coca-Cola beverages from Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America.
Paddlefish, located on the iconic Lake Buena Vista paddleboat, is open and has a rooftop bar and lounge that allows you to unwind and enjoy the spectacular views of the summertime sunset and evening activities at Disney Springs. You can enjoy live entertainment on the rooftop deck every Friday and Saturday night, 9:00 p.m. to midnight.
And if you’re looking to bring some items back home to help cool-down this summer, check out D-Living located in Town Center. This seasonally themed boutique features all the Disney merchandise necessary to prepare you for the summer. D-Living is your one-stop-shop for picking up that brand-new Walt Disney World Resort beach towels, straw hats, and that apron you need for your next summer barbeque.
Also this week, UGG is offering up to 50% off select styles of footwear, apparel and accessories through July 5, 2017.
Now through July 31, 2017 shoppers can enjoy 50% off select styles at Unode50.
British label Superdry is also offering up to 50% off select styles, including their men’s denim and women’s summer dresses now through July 31, 2017.
And with any purchase over $50 at the beachy boutique Shore from today to July 4, 2017 will get you a complimentary frisbee.
Some of these offerings are for a limited time, so head to Disney Springs this week and enjoy this cool celebration of summer.
