“This is an amazing way to spend a Saturday morning! Walk around and grab fresh produce and foods from local vendors and community growers. Take a stroll down Winter Garden's main st. and check out the local shops and restaurants!”

Tapas Restaurant

“Associated to such a long list of awards and commendations, it is hard to believe that Chef’s Table at the Edgewater Hotel isn’t talked about more. In short, expect an intimate dining experience that showcases fresh, local ingredients in a historic atmosphere. The Edgewater Hotel is located in historic Winter Garden, surprisingly close to Disney but undeniably opposite in style and cuisine to the buffet dining you’ll find in the theme parks. Disney goers looking for an upscale meal at the end of the day should flock here in droves.”

“The place to drink if you want to rub elbows with Disney entertainment outside of the park. They also hold an open mic night and if you’re into show tunes, you’ll feel like you’ve stumbled upon a secret pot of entertainment gold and if you’re not…have another Nolet’s and tonic…”
