13 Must-see Hot Spots in the Downtown Disney District

Downtown DisneyDuring your visit to the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Ca, you have to stop by the Downtown Disney District! This outdoor shopping and dining experience is well-fitted with shops that are dedicated to Disney, such as the Disney Vault 28, D Street, Studio Disney 365, and World of Disney. It is also convenient when you want to shop for something Disney-related without having to go inside the parks.

Downtown Disney also offers a variety of restaurants. From bakeries and tasty confections to Mexican and Cajun food, there is something here to fancy any appetite. I’ve been here several times to walk around and enjoy the sites. And for many locals, this is a great hangout place. Plus when you eat here or catch a movie, you get five hours of free parking (You can’t beat that!).

Check out 13 hot spots you DON’T want to miss in the Downtown Disney District. (As a bonus, all of these spots are family-friendly!)
