Spend Your Day at Downtown Disney
Downtown Disney is the perfect way to spend a morning, afternoon, evening, or even a whole day at Disney (and you don't have to pay admission to get in!) Entertainment, shopping, dining, and even an indoor theme park all await you at Downtown Disney.
Living about an hour and a half from the Mouse we often make the journey over to Downtown Disney to spend the day or evening there. I love it because I can spend hours wandering through the various stores and enjoying the incredible dining options (and it usually costs me way less than a park ticket would.)
So what is there to do, see, buy, and eat at Downtown Disney? Don't worry we have broken it down for you below.
Dining. There aren't just a few good restaurants at Downtown Disney, there are a lot of them! Enjoy a nice dinner at Bongos Cuban Cafe, Fulton's Crab House, the House of Blues Restaurant, Portobello, Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant, and the Wolfgang Puck Cafe.
The quick service options include one of my favorites the Earl of Sandwich as well as Pollo Campero, Fresh A-Peel, Ghiradelli Soda Fountain & Chocolate Shop (another favorite!), Wetzels Pretzels-Haagen Dazs, Wolfgang Puck Express- Marketplace, and Babycakes (yes another one of my favorites!)
Stuff To Do! There are plenty of options for entertainment at Downtown Disney. Spend a day at Disney Quest, an indoor interactive theme park, or catch a movie at the AMC Downtown Disney 24, see your favorite musical act at the House of Blues, enjoy a night at the circus with Cirque du Soleil-La Nouba, or take flight in a hot air ballon with Characters in Flight!
Shopping. There are all kinds of shopping options at Downtown Disney. Get your Disney merchandise at the World of Disney, The Art of Disney, Team Mickey Athletic Club, Disney's Design-a-Tee, Disney's Days of Christmas and D Street.
Grab some sweets from Goofy's Candy Co, Ghiradelli Soda Fountain & Chocolate Shop, and Disney's Candy Cauldron.
Clothing and accessories can be found at Curl by Sammy Duval, littlemissmatched, Sunglass Icon, TrenD, and the newly opened Apricot Lane.
For unique souvenirs and gifts be sure to visit Sosa Family Cigars, PoP Gallery, Hoypoloi, Magnetron Magnetz, and Basin (for all your bath bomb needs!)
And for the car and motorcycle lovers be sure to visit the Harley Davidson Store and Ridemakerz, where you can build your own radio controlled car or truck.
