Downtown Disney District

Welcome to the Downtown Disney District, an outdoor shopping center located at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California

Downtown Disney connects the two Disneyland Resort theme parks with its three resort hotels, running from the western side of the property’s Esplanade to the Disneyland Hotel.

The area featurs several shops and restaurants, ranging from popular retail brands to many Disney-operated shops including a World of Disney store running beneath much of the Grand California Hotel.
