Downtown Disney District

A great way to get away for a few hours is at the Downtown Disney District. It's a total Disney environment and it's free!

Stroll along the promenade, sit down and have a great meal, watch live entertainment, catch a live performance by the latest musical sensation or watch the big game from inside an ESPN broadcast studio.
