Disney without a ticket

Has the feel of the park without the entrance fee. Walk around, spend money and eat! Buy a souvenirs of your visit. Not a bad place for a short visit and a good meal!

The place is right outside the park and walk-able from Disneyland Resort. You will find many souvenirs shops, restaurants and lots of music and entertainment. Don't forget to visit the unique Rainforest Cafe, Lego store and World of Disney if you are planning to bring back some gifts for the loved ones. I visited this place in October when the... More

My friends and I visited downtown Disney during a convention. We had dinner on a Saturday night and enjoyed the area. However it is packed, as in crazy busy. I would avoid this area again in a weekend. Also, the prices are typical Disney inflated so be prepared.

Downtown Disney is such a cool place to shop, listen to music, eat some good cuisine and relax with a cocktail after a long day. At Christmas time, it's extra special with all the lighting and decorations. Word of advice: right after the parks let out is not the time to browse through the World of Disney Store. It gets...

Not so crowded like the Downtown Disney in Florida.Explore the huge Disney store and some restaurants (the Mexican one tastes good).

Downtown Disney is Disney's version of going to a mall district with stores, places, to eat, and even see movies. When needing a break from the parks it was nice to browse through and help our kids decide on souvenir ideas.

There's always something to see, do and eat in downtown Disney. I love the atmosphere there. You have the feeling of being inside Disneyland but your really not. In the winter time there's hot chocolate and ice skating. Oh! And if you sign up for any of the a runDisney runs like a 5k run, you will run right through... More

We visited several times during our stay - it's a great way to access Disneyland or the California Adventure Park but there are restaurants, shops, roving entertainment & much more. You can also catch the Disney fireworks as well. The walk through Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa was worth it too - it was all decorated for Christmas and... More

I love coming here to entertain out of town friends, and eat and shop for Disney stuff. We easily spend 2-3 hours here and that's without seeing a movie! I love eating at ESPN Zone, Rainforest Cafe and Earl of Sandwich. The World of Disney store is my favorite since it's huge and has everything for every Disney fan out... More
