If you're cheap and want to fool young kids take them here and tell them it's Disney. There's enough going on. We visited after the park so had paid to park but I'm sure from previous visits you can park here for free. Nice selection of shops to browse and a great selection of restaurants serving reliable food. Don't just... More

I love downtown disney because of the variety of stores and restaurants. Whenever I'm in town on business, I make sure to visit downtown Disney because it's just a great place to grab some food and hang out for a bit. I recommend visiting the Lego store and seeing all the different lego models. The have a RideMakers store for... More

We decided to forgo going to Disneyland itself, but still had a great time, by visiting here instead. My daughter loved it.

biggest disappointment of our otherwise great Disney experience. Downtown is currently under a major renovation and personally speaking was a complete waste of time unless you wanted to go to a particular store. The only saving grace is The Cirque Du Soleil show La Nouba which is a must do. Once the work is done i'm sure it will be... More

We stopped at downtown Disney to watch the fireworks. It's now set up for Christmas and I was so excited to just be in the Disney atmosphere. We got beignets from the jazz restaurant and sat right in front at the fountain to watch the fireworks. It was extremely busy and the parking was nuts and it was only 9:15... More

We stayed near Disneyland for 4 nights and spent our last day walking through Downtown Disney. We went to the movies, looked in shops, ate plenty of food, spent way too much time in the Disney shop and were entertained at the end of the night by a band and some dancers. It is a great extra to visiting Disneyland.

Though there were Disney features of the downtown area (a melting skating rink with a Frozen theme, for example), the restaurants and shops were standard fare that you can find anywhere. (ESPN zone, Rainforest Cafe, etc.) If traveling with children, finding something common might be a good thing; for me, I like something more unique and local.

The food at Disney District is MUCH better than the food they serve inside the park. So if you're tired of the bland fare inside the park, it might be worth your while to eat at one of the many restaurants in the Disney District.
