Lots of restaurants and shops. Very enjoyable place to spend a couple of hours. Convenient to pop in and out if going to either park too.

My daughters and I went to the Downtown Disney before we went to the Disneyland Park. We watched a movie and got dinner and a little shopping too! I highly recommend stopping here on your way to Disneyland!

I miss ESPN zone. I miss Rainforest Cafe. And I miss House of Blues. However, it's still great and some of the newer bars are a lot of fun! Being from SD, it's great having a Ballast Point right there but Ballast, get some TV's!...More

I was on a business trip, and we visited Downtown Disney in Anaheim. It is safe, secure, entertaining, and all, but I have visited other places that were more fun and had more to do. The Florida counterpart is much better.

Recent closure of AMC 12 was a disappointment. Live music was good; Disney-Cruise ship quality. Food and beverage options, while good, were overpriced. Worth an evening visit but not the next evening options for Anaheim.

We had so much fun in Downtown Disney. There was entertainment going on in various locations, great restaurants to choose from (some were a whole experience in themselves), and the food and drinks were really very good for being in a theme park area! We...More

It’s outside the 2 parks but within the security perimeters. It’s more gift shops and food places. There a LEGO store towards the bottom end. The Disneyland park monorail stops here close to the LEGO shop.

Downtown Disney and Boardwalk (2 Replies)
We don't have time for any WDW or Universal theme park, but do have about 5 hours to spare on our way from Tampa to Kennedy Space Center. So I'm looking for some smaller low cost attractions. Downtown Disney and Disney's Broadwalk look like pretty places to have a walk, and with shops and eateries. Is there a parking lot we can use without stay in any of the resort and without visiting any theme park?

I would suggest Downtown Disney, more shops, entertainment and Dining Options there Parking is Free The Boardwalk is Lovely but smaller, less to enjoy. You can Park for free for 3 hours at the Boardwalk Inn

we stayed at the Royal Plaza in june but because it was so hot it was that bit too far to walk so this may we're staying at the Hilton. Also you get the extra disney hours at the Hilton

Typhoon Lagoon and Downtown Disney and Seaworld (6 Replies)
Hi Only coming to Orlando for 7 days at end May 2010. They only things we did not do last time were Typhoon Lagoon, Seaworld and Downtown Disney. Do you have to have a ticket to get in to Downtown Disney ie pay and also can you just pay at the gate for Typhoon Lagoon and Seaworld and does anyone know how much a ticket would be. Thanks very much Christine

Response fromFlorida_Wizz_Kid|
yeah downtown disney is free to access. and you will be able to get a ticket at the gate. typhoon lagoon is about $45 for an adult one day ticket. and seaworld is $75 i think.
