When We Can Expect to See Downtown Disney’s Transformation Completed
Doesn’t it seem like construction never ends at the Disney Parks? We certainly feel like there are always construction walls up somewhere.
If you’ve visited the Downtown Disney District at Disneyland lately, you might’ve noticed a lot of construction. This is all part of a big transformation that’s taking place, and we have an update on what’s happening!
Downtown Disney Changes
The new and enhanced dining and retail offerings at Downtown Disney will arrive over the course of the next 18 months, according to Disneyland President Ken Potrock via a tweet from Scott Gustin.

What are these changes? Well, there are a lot of them!
Disneyland is currently reimagining Downtown Disney, its shopping, dining, and entertainment district. This has led to several closures and a bunch of construction!
Disney has said that they want to create more al fresco spaces, basically meaning more outdoor dining and shopping experiences.
La Brea Bakery, Uva Bar, Catal, and Sprinkles have all closed as part of this project. Uva Bar & Cafe will be turning into Paseo and Centrico.
Paseo has Michelin-starred Chef Carlos Gaytan behind it, and Centric will be a spot for upscale Mexican dining.
The west-end area of Downtown Disney will get a mid-century modern upgrade with vibrant colors, new design elements, and fun patterns. There will also be an open law for relaxing and special events.
Another new restaurant coming is Din Tai Fung, which is a very popular dim sum spot!
We’ll let you know whenever we find out more details about the updates happening at Downtown Disney. Stay tuned for more Disneyland news and updates!
