This one-of-a-kind Disney destination offers a wide range to see, do and explore including family friend dining, entertainment and shopping. 2018 marks the start of yet another exciting transformation to the Downtown Disney area which will include multiple new venues as well as improvements to the World of Disney store. To give you a sample of the fun you can have during a visit to Downtown Disney, here are five reasons why we think it’s tops!
Vibrant Setting Means Year Round Fun – The Downtown Disney District has something to offer no matter when you visit. There’s a fun array of shopping options, delicious dining to satisfy all tastes as well as world-class entertainment no matter the season! The beautiful Anaheim weather means 365 days of Downtown Disney fun!
A One-stop Shop for All Your Disney Souvenirs – You’ll find Disney’s flagship World of Disney Store at Downtown Disney. It offers one of the largest selections of Disney toys, souvenirs, accessories, and collectables in the World. Though the shop is currently being re-imagined into a newly upgraded and distinctly Disney retail experience, World of Disney will continue to welcome guests. Work is expected to be completed in phases throughout 2018. Some of our other favorite places to shop at Downtown Disney include WonderGround Gallery, Curl Surf and PANDORA Jewelery.
Flavors to Suit Any Palate – There are 15 different food and beverage locations throughout Downtown Disney. Each eatery offers a unique setting and flavors meaning that there is something for all tastes. From open cafes and watering holes serving up craft cocktails to gourmet treats and fancy sit down meals no matter what your budget or plans, you are covered! Eateries include Catal Restaurant, Sprinkles, La Brea Bakery Cafe, Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen Tortilla Jo’s and Naples Ristorante e Pizzeria.
Entertainment for the Whole Family –At Downtown Disney, you can gather, relax and make magical memories. Guests can step into The Star Wars universe during the multi-sensory experience Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire by ILMxLAB and THE VOID. During this hyper-reality experience, you’ll be transported into the rebellion allowing you to walk freely and untethered through outer space. Another favorite entertainment spot is Splitsville Luxury Lane which serves up great food and several lanes for those looking to bowl the night away!
In the Heart of It All – The Downtown Disney District is located in the center of the Disneyland action and is accessible for visitors to the theme parks and resorts. Getting to Downtown Disney is an easy walk from Disneyland, Disney California Adventure, and any of the three on-property hotels.
We hope next time you are planning a visit to Disneyland that you’ll set aside at least an evening to enjoy this magnificent 20-acre, 300,000 square foot avenue which like the resorts and theme parks is infused with a big dose of Disney magic!
