Disney Springs (formerly Downtown Disney, officially Pleasure Island) has a history as a place for adults to play on their Disney vacations. Dining, shopping, nightlife, live entertainment, and more, it’s a place adults won’t find in places like Magic Kingdom. However, the introduction of the “Kids Club” could backfire against a major dictate of Disney Springs’ original design and intent.
Some casual fans may wonder why an adult-only area is such a big deal at Walt Disney World, a place dedicated to children and families, but Disney Springs has a kids club. Inclusion may seem pointless at first glance. An avid Disney guest spending time with his family at one of the various parks that make up his WDW and enjoying the magic of Disney together is great, but sometimes adults need to have their own fun. It may take some time. Does including something like this really keep the spirit of Springs?

Disney described the upcoming event on the park’s blog as follows:
“Disney Springs Kids Club kicks off Saturday, January 28 with an all-new entertainment offering designed for the whole family to enjoy together. It takes place every Saturday at 10:30 a.m. at Waterview Park. These unique, family-friendly acts change weekly, with new entertainment frequently added to the line-up.”
On paper, this doesn’t sound particularly out of character for Disney or Springs. Disney is used to having live entertainment scattered throughout the parks, and Disney Springs usually offers the best entertainment. Furthermore, any of its usual elements may not be inappropriate for children. there is.

Disney has always been one of the most family-friendly places on earth, but there are just as many adults enjoying its magic as children. Is it really harmful to have all-inclusive activities on weekends in areas reserved for shopping, drinking, and other normal adult activities? Some see it as an opportunity to enjoy what Disney Springs has to offer.
