Around the country, families are enjoying the last lingering days of summer before a new school year starts. Whether you’re here in Central Florida on vacation or you live locally, now is the perfect time to enjoy one last hurrah – and I can think of no better place than Disney Springs!

Need some suggestions on what to do? Start with a Pineapple Soft Serve from Marketplace Snacks (pictured above), then read on for my top picks that offer something for everyone:

Made-to-Order S’mores at The Ganachery at Disney Springs S’more Cupcake from Sprinkles at Disney Springs Campfire S’more Petite Cake from Amorette’s Patisserie at Disney Springs

Enjoy a Sweet Holiday: Nothing says “summer” like s’mores, and as luck would have it, today is National S’more Day. Celebrate the oeey-gooey goodness with Made-to-Order S’mores at The Ganachery, a S’more Cupcake at Sprinkles or a Campfire S’more Petite Cake at Amorette’s Patisserie. (Feeling ambitious? Why not indulge in this trifecta of treats with your own personal S’more Scavenger Hunt!)

Guests at AMC Disney Springs 24

Make Movie Memories: It’s been a summer of blockbusters and if you haven’t seen the latest big-screen hits, there’s still time. “Christopher Robin,” ”Ant-Man and the Wasp,” “The Incredibles 2” and Solo: A Star Wars Story are still showing at AMC Disney Springs 24. (Tip: Matinee movies are offered daily until noon, with tickets starting at $5.59 + taxes and fees.)

Barbecue Burger from D-Luxe Burger at Disney Springs BBQ Chicken Salad from Wolfgang Puck Express at Disney Springs

Tempt Your Taste Buds: Disney Springs Brews & BBQ – featuring summer staples ranging from burgers and ribs to salads and steaks – runs through Labor Day; it’s the perfect excuse to try something new or enjoy a second helping of your tried-and-true favorites. For a full list of offerings (including those pictured below), pick up a guide at the Disney Springs Welcome Center.

Splitsville Luxury Lanes at Disney Springs

Score a Deal at Splitsville Luxury Lanes: If your family loves a little friendly competition, hit the lanes before lunch and take advantage of Early Bird Bowling offered every day until 12 p.m.: kids 9 and under can bowl for $10 and adults are just $14, shoes included.

Drafts Available at Paddlefish at Disney Springs Glass of Rosé from Paddlefish at Disney Springs

Savor the Last Sip of Summer: If you’re visiting Disney Springs without kids, don’t pass up Happy Hour at Paddlefish. Right now, you can enjoy $5 draft beers and $20 bottles of rosé at the bar from 2-4 p.m. and on the 3rd deck from 9-11 p.m. I’ll toast to that!

Here’s to one last hurrah and a great back-to-school season for you and your family.
