It is a tiny version of DD of FL. Mostly stores selling overpriced non Disney items, a few restaurants. We were surprised to see that it all shuts down at the same time with the parks. Disneyland Park closed at 11:00 and we had no where to have a late night meal or drink in DD except for their Starbucks.... More

Something for everyone here. It really sets the tone as you get ready to enter either one of the parks. I've never seen so many different stores selling different styles of Disney.

Excellent walkable shopping center. Good variety of Disney items mixed with regular stores, restaurants, etc. A fun place to spend an afternoon or evening.

We love downtown Disney it is full of fun things to do and a lot of adventure if you want to try new things. You can shop and eat and it has a bar in the center for drinking and people watching. It also houses the house of blues if you want to get away and hear some good music... More

We've traveled to the Disney parks every few years since we were first married. Downtown didn't exist when we came here on our honeymoon, and this was the first trip back without the kids. Our experience was much nicer and we got to enjoy a nice dinner at House of Blues. The whole place is in Disney style with efficiency,... More

One evening we walked down to Downtown Disney from our hotel and enjoyed walking the area and taking in the shops and restaurants. There are plenty to choose from - mainly your chains: ESPN Zone, House of Blues with a few others mixed in. The stores are cool to check out.

good range of shops. Large Disney store contained same range as in park so if you see something as you're walking round pick it up rather than go back to Downtown to get it. Nice vibe with live music playing but snack places close at around 10:30 so it's hard to pick up a snack late at night. If you... More

Tons of shopping and restaurants all in a very short walk from the parks. A nice alternative to only spending time in the parks. Favorite places were Napoli and House of Blues restaurants and the World of Disney for shopping. Nice place to spend an evening or two when at Disneyland Resort.

Downtown Disney is a fun place to go when you want a break from the parks. No admission fees. Many shops and restaurants. Would recommend House of Blues.
