A bustling promenade offering shopping, dining, and entertainment, Downtown Disney is an outdoor area within the sprawling Disney resort in Anaheim. Often called the resort's "shoppertainment center," the area lies between two theme parks and their hotels. Opened in 2001 as part of the resort's massive expansion, this entertainment district encourages extended stays in the popular Disney-themed entertainment complex. The district provides free parking for up to five hours, so you can take your time to enjoy a hearty meal and a few cocktails at an open-air cafe, shop at one of the largest Disney stores in the world, or explore a range of outdoor entertainment options, nightclubs, and movie theaters.

  • Loved Downtown Disney. Here are shops, restaurants, and entertainment. The almost here at night is nice! Very lively and most entertaining! Did I mention you can watch the fireworks from there? You can also get to the resorts and hotels through the downtown which makes it very convenient! So much to do for the entire family!
  • The atmosphere of downtown is totally different at night. It feels more exciting. If you enjoy Disney you'll love it here. Lots of shops to explore for souvenirs. There's quite a few places to eat too. It was a very entertaining experience.
