ORLANDO, Fla. - Jan. 10, 2018 - Disney Springs is among several U.S. spots on a newly released New York Times list of the 52 Places to Go in 2018.

Coming in at No. 41, the Walt Disney World-area entertainment/dining/shopping complex provides "an unexpected culinary destination with a focus on grown-ups. Rick Bayless, Masaharu Morimoto, Wolfgang Puck and Art Smith have all opened restaurants here, and George Miliotes is launching a wine bar in spring 2018 that will be the only master sommelier-ied wine bar in the state. There are boutiques, a House of Blues and partying opportunities aplenty — all giving adults a new reason to go to Disney," wrote Nell McShane Wulfhart.
