Wetzel’s Pretzels Re-Opens Its Flagship Store at Downtown Disney in Disneyland Resort
A fan favorite has returned to Downtown Disney this week! Wetzel’s Pretzels, an innovator of soft, fresh-baked pretzels has re-opened its flagship store at Downtown Disney in Disneyland Resort after an extensive renovation.
The shop features a California-inspired design with an indoor-outdoor feel. Wetzel’s commissioned two local artists: Trek Thunder Kelly and Dan Medina to help with this updated new look. Kelly is known for his large-scale murals including the Sky Mural in Venice Beach. He painted a mural for Wetzel’s the wraps around the inside of the store featuring images of Pasadena (Wetzel’s hometown.) The mural also features 12 hidden pretzels. Medina, known for his bronze sculptures including the Antonio Aguilar monument in Los Angeles designed custom door handles that create a pretzel when the doors are closed!
Fans will also be pleased to know that all of your Wetzel’s favorites are back. You’ll find popular items on the menu like the Cheese Meltdown, Pepperoni Twist, Wetzel Dog, Cin-A-Bitz, Wetzel’s Dogs, Bitz as well as fresh and frozen lemonade. The pretzels are baked from scratch throughout the day with simple ingredients like flour, filtered water, yeast and a touch of salt! Little has changed about this original recipe since the store first opened 25 years ago.
Wetzel’s Pretzels is just one of the many reasons visitors to Disneyland Resort should set aside some time to enjoy Downtown Disney. Here you’ll find an exciting array of venues, shops, restaurants and entertainment. Over the past year, the promenade welcomed new businesses like Splitsville Luxury Lanes, The VOID, The Disney Dress Shop, Salt & Straw scoop shop, Napolini and a newly re-imagined World of Disney store. Soon Downtown Disney will also welcome Naples Ristorante e Bar, Ballast Point brewery and Black Tap Craft Burgers and Shakes.
