ATM Locations of Downtown Disney District

- Close to both The LEGO Sore and Starbucks.
The Mouse For Less Tips
- See Disneyland fireworks without going in the park! Some of our favorite locations to see the fireworks from Downtown Disney are between Splitsville and Tortilla Jo’s, between the Pin Trader kiosk and Tortilla Jo’s, between the security check point and Disneyland hotel, or go beyond Downtown Disney and see it from the esplanade between Disneyland and Disney California Adventure.
- When using the ATM remember that if you’re visiting from out of town you may want to call ahead to the bank. This will avoid any confusion and/or interference during your vacation. Many financial institutes will flag too many out of state cash withdrawals in a single period of time.
- Like the Rinse Bath & Body Co., Sephora also offers exclusive products to guests shopping at the Downtown Disney District store.
- During the Halloween and Fall season of the year there are carefully handcrafted and painted pumpkin patches, enlarged candies, and of course candy corn pieces each individually crafted. These are great photo spots for the family!
