Its great to hit Downtown after a day of hitting the Disneyland pavement. Food outlets are great and diverse and the shopping caters for all tastes.

“Disney without the Parks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

I loved Downtown Disney a little too much. Why?, mainly because of the World of Disney store. I love Disney and could have easily bought out half the shop. If you only get a limited amount of time in either Disney park never fear you can get all your Disneyania from outside the parks. From ears to apparel to pin trading to just about everything your heart desires and your wallet allows.
Best eats were Jazz Kitchen Express and House of Blues.

“Free Parking Downtown”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

Oh yes, there's no fee to park and stroll in Downtown Disney. Yes, they have great shopping. Yes, they have three free parking hours. Yes, it's the gateway to Disney's Magic Kingdom and California Adventure. Many fine food offerings at the restaurants. A warm and cozy mousy feel to the place. Validate your parking stub and stay longer. What's not to like at this fine tuned Disney production? Lights, music, action and shopping are all here. We come to enjoy the holiday themed decorations and are never disappointed.
