*Disclosure: The 2020 Toyota Sienna was provided to me for a road trip for the AGG Conference and editorial consideration. All opinions are 100% my own*
Yall already know that I love a good adventure! I had a blast road-tripping from GA to FL with my homegirl Jerseyfashionista and her wonderful mom and daughter in the 2020 Toyota Sienna!
Since we are ALL fearless women who like to explore, we made a few stops along the way. The first was Disney Springs and had a blast!
I have to almost laugh when I say that because until recently I thought ALL Disney parks were extremely expensive and for kids. Silly me, right?!?!!? Lillie told me time and time again that this was so not true, but it wasn’t until I actually experienced Disney Springs for myself that I am NOW am a believer and a BIG fan!
What Disney Springs has to offer:
- Four distinct neighborhoods
- 150 restaurants, retailers and fun activities
Access and Parking
- Free easy access
- Complimentary self-parking in all surface lots and garages, providing direct access to Disney Springs.

1. AMC Dine-In Theatres
I love going to the movies, especially when I am in different cities! Don’t ask me why but every time I visit somewhere other than South Florida I am looking for a cool movie theatre.
Before my trip to Disney Springs, I had no idea that an AMC Dine-In Theatre was one of their major attractions. This really cool dine-in/full-service theatre is right my alley! It allows their customers to sit down, order from their fresh and handcrafted menu, and to grab drinks from the MacGuffins Bar. Yep, they pretty much take care of everything. All you have to do is arrive and enjoy the show.
Additionally, while there you have to try their irresistible AMC Perfectly Popcorn. It is popped fresh daily and you can smell the savory and mouthwatering aroma as soon as you walk in the door.
Note: Their crops are grown and harvested in Illinois, Nebraska, and Missouri.
2. House of Blues
I have always wanted to attend a concert at the famous House of Blues! It has totally been on my bucket list for years. Now that I know I am only a few hours away from this totally cool place I will definitely be returning.
What the House of Blues has to offer:
- A hip and funky vibe
- Blues Kitchen what serves Southern cuisine
- Live music converges (Regional, national and international acts)
- World Famous Gospel Brunch on Sundays. On a weekly bases, enjoy traditional and modern gospel music while partaking in an all-you-can-eat buffet (peel-and-eat shrimp, biscuits and gravy, banana bread pudding, and more).
3. Splitsville Luxury Lanes
I haven’t been bowling in years, but I definitely got excited when I saw Splitsville Luxury Lanes while exploring the park. The two-story, 50,000-square-foot bowling and dining venue looks amazing and is perfect for people of all ages.
I became nostalgic when I first laid eyes on the alley. It totally reminded me of my granddad. He used to take me bowling all the time when I was a little girl.
What Splitsville has to offer:
- Eclectic menu that features everything from fresh-rolled sushi to steak chimichurri
- 30 bowling lanes
- live entertainment
- indoor/outdoor seating
4. Helium Balloon Rides
When I heard that this family-friendly park had an Aéro30 helium balloon that will take you 400 feet in the air I was first in line. Talk about amazing! While in the air, you have to take advantage of the gorgeous views Orlando has to offer — including their theme parks!
5. Candy Cauldron
Candy Cauldron is located on the west side of Disney Springs and is packed with tons of very delicious and instragrammable goodies. The candy apples, bulk treats, and other mouthwatering sweets will make anyone drool.
Note: As of Oct 2019 there is nothing available for those who are allergic or have a food intolerance to dairy.
The 2020 Sienna Minivan is not only full of the latest technology is it extremely spacious and comfy. As I stated above, a group of five traveled from GA to FL and the entire ride was enjoyable. We were not only with friends and family, but we also had a bangin JBL Sound system, tons of legroom and all the storage we needed for our luggage.

- MSRP starts at $31,565.00
- MPG: 19 City / 26 highway

Thanks to Jerseyfashionista I am now a very big fan of Disney Springs, and I can’t wait to go back! It was such a fun experience. Also, Toyota always impresses with their amazing and very versatile vehicles. The Sienna proved that a minivan can be for more than a big family. It can also be the perfect vehicle for a girls road trip.
Pin for later!!
Have A Happy Healthy, and Remember to Always…Stay Sassy!
