Disney Springs, formerly known but known colloquially as Downtown Disney, is an outdoor shopping, dining and entertainment complex at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. It opened on March 22, 1975, when it was called the Lake Buena Vista Shopping Village, Walt Disney World Village, and Disney Village Marketplace.

Disney Springs is open to the public, requires no admission fee, and offers complimentary parking and transportation to all Disney-operated Walt Disney World parks and resorts. The overhaul of the area into Disney Springs led to much of the area being restructured into the theme of a small Floridian town built around a series of newly added natural springs. The large outdoor complex is divided into four areas: The Marketplace, Town Center, The Landing (formerly Pleasure Island), and West Side. Each area features a selection of entertainment venues, shops, and restaurants; all with unique themes.

Notable tenants include Cirque du Soleil's La Nouba, the House of Blues, Planet Hollywood, the Lego Imagination Center, World of Disney, AMC Pleasure Island 24, and Rainforest Cafe, which Disney's Animal Kingdom also has.

On May 20, 2020, Disney Springs partially reopened with social distancing precautions in place amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and has not ceased operation since.
