Downtown Disney District
Downtown Disney District
If “heading downtown” is your idea of rest and recreation, head to the Disneyland Resort’s Downtown Disney District. You’ll find unique shops, fantastic dining, and super entertainment including top-name bands, street performers, and dancing water fountains.
Downtown Disney District is a destination of its own. Take a short walk “downtown” from anywhere within the Disneyland Resort and enjoy the friendly urban atmosphere. The pedestrian-only streets, attention to detail, and sprawling layout avoid the “mall” feeling completely. Enjoy one of the brightest, cleanest, safest, and most satisfying downtowns anywhere.
If you can’t get your fill of shopping inside the theme parks, or if you are looking for just the right gift, come to Downtown Disney District. There’s no admission charge here, and you’ll find much more than Disney merchandise. Get ready for the California sunshine with sunglasses from the Sunglass Icon store and the latest in extreme sports gear from Quiksilver. Try Something Silver for sterling silver jewelry. Pamper yourself with great skincare products and scents from Sephora and nostalgic treats from Marceline’s Confectionery. For the fashion conscious, off-beat fashion (and a huge Vinylmation collection) are at D-Street. (Note that Vault 28 and Fossil closed for the new 30-minute Star Wars Experience which is now open—tickets are $29.95, plus a payment processing fee of $2.85, at atomtickets.com.) For the kid in all of you, shop and play at the The LEGO Imagination Center (note that Build-a-Bear Workshop and RIDEMAKERZ have closed). Chapel Hats also closed to make way for the new The Disney Dress Shoppe, which offers a collection of retro-inspired Disney-themed dresses and accessories. Girls love to get a complete makeover at Anna & Elsa's Boutique. A Disney’s Pin Traders kiosk sells pins and lanyards. Express your own unique style with super-comfy specialty shoes from Sanuk or Disney-inspired art (including custom Vinylmations!) at WonderGround Gallery. Disney D Street closed to make way for Disney Home, coming later in 2018. Remember your visit to one of the Downtown Disney eateries with logo merchandise from ESPN Zone Studio Store and Rainforest Café. Enjoy a round of bowling and some fun food at Splitsville Luxury Lanes. But don’t leave without a visit to World of Disney, the second largest Disney Store in the world, only outdone by the one at Walt Disney World. This is the one-stop shopping spot for all your Disneyland merchandise.
Note: To make way for the new 700-room hotel that's going in at the west end of Disneyland Resort in California, several venues at Downtown Disney are closing June 30, 2018. Closing are Earl of Sandwich, Alamo Rent-a-Car, AMC Theaters, Disney Vacation Club office, ESPN Zone, Rainforest Cafe, Starbucks West Side, and the Walt Disney Travel office. For those lamenting the loss of Earl of Sandwich, Disney says it could possibly appear on the ground floor of the new hotel complex.
