ANAHEIM, Calif. – The Downtown Disney District at the Disneyland Resort is a fresh, one-of-a-kind Disney experience, immersing guests by day and night in an exciting mix of family-friendly dining, shopping and entertainment. Throughout 2018, Downtown Disney has embarked on a promenade-wide transformation. Multiple new venues and significant refurbishments to marquee dining and retail locations, including the World of Disney store, are taking place throughout the year while Downtown Disney remains open to guests.

VIBRANT SETTING YEAR-ROUND: The Downtown Disney District has something for everyone with an assortment of shopping options, delicious dining and world-class entertainment open to the general public 365 days a year.

FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT: At Downtown Disney, guests gather, relax and create memories with daily atmospheric music and entertainment. From Splitsville Luxury Lanes to The VOID’s hyper reality experience, fun for the whole family is only a few steps away.

ABUNDANCE OF FLAVOR: There are approximately 15 different food and beverage locations, each offering unique settings and flavors. There is something for every taste—from open-air cafés and craft cocktails, to gourmet treats on-the-go and exquisite sit-down meals.
