Downtown Disney is located between Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure.
Essentially it is a shopping and dining area that contains some disney themed stores as well as other popular stores.
I quite enjoy Downtown Disney as there are a number of stores which are disney themed, but are slightly edgier.
A new store, Wonderland Gallery includes the work of local artists. The work is disney inspired, but re-imagined in different ways. There are sculptures, paintings and prints available for sale, including some original work.
I also really like Marceline’s Confectionery. They have amazing character inspired candy apples which are covered in sugar, nuts, chocolate, caramel and marshmallow.
You can also see the Disneyland fireworks from downtown disney. So you get a great fireworks show which gets better every time and it costs nothing!
