We came here on our 2nd to last night, as our travelling companion had to go home a day early. The lights are amazing, there was a live band and some amazing shops. You can see the fireworks at Disneyland as well (not the same as being in Disneyland of course!) We had a lovely Dinner, then looked around the... More

Had fun shopping eating and just people watching in Downtown Disney. Helps build the excitement before you get into the Parks! Not the cheapest shops you'll find there, but all good!

Being from the East Coast and experiencing Downtown Disney in Florida, this place by far was my most favorite little area of Disneyland. It so cute and a lot smaller than its sister in FLorida. It was a welcome change.

Downtown Disney is a great place to go when you are tired of standing in line at the theme parks and need a change of scenery. Unlike Downtown Disney in Orlando, the California DD is right next to the parks. You can ride the monorail from Tomorrowland over and back again. Very convenient. Had a good abundance of shops and...

Lots to see and do. Always busy and always fun. Lots of shops and restaurants. Never boring. We ate at the Rainforest Cafe and glad we had reservations.

Went into Disney Quest one night after visiting the theme parks not knowing what to expect, this place was fantastic, have a lot of arcade games that bought back a lot of memories as well as a lot of modern games. The night we went there was hardly anyone there so we just went from one machine to the next... More

For those between the ages of 3-12, very likely. Only been there in the evenings for business dinners during NAMM, however the magical atmosphere does rub off on all that venture through Disney. A childhood dream for many, where even as an adult, it does bring back a certain excitement from your childhood.

There is a lot to do around here. The food is ok (a bit overpriced of course) with lots of selection and a lot of entertainment everywhere. I definitely suggest going at night, but it can be difficult to find parking. You can shop in Disney and regular stores and the best part is getting a table outside the restaurant... More

We stooped at Downtown Disney after hitting the park on the night I parked in the Character Lot. I wasn't too familiar with what DD entailed until I walked around and realized that this is a shopping mall. Many of the usual suspects, including a few Disney brand stores and a few restaurants. We ate at Catal, a more upscale... More
