Actually no. As someone who has lived here for 5 plus years that is incorrect. Disney springs attracts a different local population than city walk. And again only those sips fall into the trap of spending money there.As someone that only recently moved out of Orlando, and still has family in Orlando, I can attest to that being very untrue. The only thing that Citywalk draws in locals for is the clubs. Everything else is highly reliant on foot traffic to and from the parks/resorts. Springs (post-transformation) has become a local hotspot largely thanks to its ease of access. Heck, it’s apparently become an “it-spot” among pretty much every age group, even the gimmicky teens and YA’s.
To your credit, yes city walk is for clubs. But their clubs are kind of dated.
