Why stay near the Flamingo Crossings Town Center?
Flamingo Crossings Town Center has been given the title of “Second Springs” however, there is a big difference between Disney Springs and this area. Disney Springs is designed as a tourist area with shops, dining, and places to stay in the heart of Disney World. Transportation is provided for guests of all Disney Resorts and visitors to the parks to Disney Springs. Flamingo Crossings is a place to stay outside of the chaotic vibe of Disney World but still be close enough to take a short drive to the parks and Disney Springs. Shopping and Dining are more like a beautiful campus providing the needs of those living in the area. While Disney Springs is an amazing place to visit, Flamingo Crossings is a wonderful place to consider if you are looking for some peace at the end (or start) of your days spent at the Disney Parks.
