Updates to the Downtown Disney District For the Holiday Season

Downtown Disney District

Due to updates to regulations in California, the Downtown Disney District at the Disneyland Resort has made adjustments to its operation regarding dining and more. The good news is that retail locations will remain open for holiday shopping! In addition, if you are looking for a bite or snack to take with you, select food and beverage options will also remain open for you to pick up and enjoy at home.

Guests can shop at places like World of Disney, Elias & Co., Disneyland Resort Backlot Premiere Shop, The Disney Dress Shop, Disney Home and Julius Katz & Sons. In addition, new for this year and exclusive to Disneyland Resort is the opportunity to pick up a Spider-Bot direct from Avengers Campus! (And before the land even officially opens!) Spider-Bots and some of the latest WEB apparel from Avengers Campus are available at both World of Disney and Disneyland Resort Backlot Premiere Shop. (Spider-Bots, just so you know, are going to be a key part in the upcoming WEB-SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure attraction in Avengers Campus.)

Other non-Disney shopping boutiques will also be available like California Sole, Sugarboo & Co., Curl Surf, Sunglass Icon, Sephora, Rinse Bath & Body Co., Pandora Jewelry and The LEGO Store.

While you can’t dine at the Disneyland Resort any longer, select food and beverage locations are offering takeout options, including Black Tap Craft Burgers & Shakes, Blue Ribbon Corn Dogs, California Churro, Earl of Sandwich, Jamba, Kayla’s Cake, Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen Express, Salt & Straw, Sprinkles and Wetzel’s Pretzels and Ballast Point Brewing Company, which is offering craft beers to-go and merchandise.

For Disney-themed bites, pick up seasonal goodies at Marceline’s Confectionery and Trolley Treats.

Current operating hours for the Downtown Disney District are 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., with the exception of Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve, however hours for individual locations may vary. Specific information and updates are available on Disneyland.com or the Disneyland app.

Of course, all safety and health protocols are still enacted for those visiting the Downtown Disney District. All Guests will be required to undergo temperature screenings prior to entry, and also wear an appropriate face covering (required for guests ages 2 and older). In addition, the number of Guests visiting the Downtown Disney District and its locations, including the expanded shopping area along Buena Vista Street, will continue to be limited to promote proper physical distancing.
