Everything you need to know about visiting Downtown Disney at the Disneyland Resort including shopping, dining and more. Visiting this area is a great option on a non park day. Don’t have a ticket to Disneyland no worries. You can easily spend the day here. Let’s dive into the details as well as share some helpful tips if you plan to visit. Here’s what you need to know for the best time!
There is only one self-parking lot for Downtown Disney, the Simba Parking Lot. The parking lot opens about 15 minutes before posted DTD hours. Parking payments are hourly prices with validation returns. Payment is collected when you leave the lot like it used to be. The first hour of parking costs $10. Validations apply after the first hour of paid parking. Enjoy an additional 3 hours of same-day parking with a $20-minimum purchase and validation from any Downtown Disney location—or up to 5 additional hours of same-day parking with validation from any Downtown Disney table-service restaurant. NOTE: you can not get parking validation from GCH Craftsman Bar or Grill inside the Grand Californian hotel. Beyond these validations, each additional hour costs $14, charged in 30-minute increments, with a minimum $7. The maximum daily parking and lost ticket fee is $66. Parking is subject to capacity.
After parking guests will walk to the Downtown Disney entrance adjacent to the Disneyland Hotel, near Earl of Sandwich. (see map included)
The Harbor Boulevard Guest drop-off and pick-up location is open for drop-offs as well. In addition there is another guest drop-off and pick-up location on Downtown Drive.
Other parking options
If you don’t want to park in the Simba parking lot there are other parking options. You can always park in the Mickey and Friends parking lot for $25 per day. There are a few parking options along Harbor Blvd also. The Toy Story parking lot on Harbor is now open for $25 per day to park. The Anaheim hotel, offers parking, the Anaheim Garden Walk is across Harbor and down the street (about 10-12 min walk). You pay by the hour at the Garden Walk to park. The first hour is free and then it’s $3 per hour to park up to $30 total for the day. Plus this location is open 24 hours, 7 days a week. The Best Western, Fairfield Inn, Tropicana and Grand Legacy no longer offer parking. The last option is just take and Uber or Lyft to the Harbor side entrance and get dropped off. These locations and prices are subject to change. I continue to update this as things change. Updated 6-26
Once you have parked you will head to security. There are 2 spots you pass through at security, a walk through past the sniffing dogs and bag check.
I’d bring only bare minimum to keep bag check easy. If you don’t want security to touch your bag with their gloves you can ask them to change into new gloves. Or you can ask them to check with their flashlight only as you open each compartment. But as long as you cooperate they will work with you.
Hours of Operation
Downtown Disney District hours vary, you can check the Disneyland app for sure on the day you plan to visit. Scroll all the way down on the home page and click on All Hours. Then click the date you plan to go and it will tell you the hours for Downtown Disney.
Dining options and tips
Make a reservation in the Disneyland app ahead of time at many dining locations: La Brea Bakery Cafe, Naples, Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen, Splitsville, Tortilla Jo’s, Catal and Uva Bar. Another option, you can look for a reservation in the app Open Table for many of the Downtown restaurants. The other option is to just go directly to the dining location once you arrive. You will be added to the wait list or be seated depending on availability. Many locations don’t offer reservations it’s just first come first served. Look in the Disneyland app to see all the dining options that are open at this time. Search under Dining in the app.
Marceline’s is open and has treats from inside the parks. So even if you can’t go in the parks on one of your days you can still grab a caramel apple, rice crispy treat, cookie, marshmallow wand or my favorite churro toffee! In addition to treats in the bakery cases they have packaged items like popcorn, toffee, candy etc.
World of Disney is stocked with all the Disney merchandise you need. They carry the latest items and are always dropping new stuff. There is also a Disney Home Store, Disney Dress Shop, Star Wars Trading Post and more. Search under Shops in the app.
- If you can go during the week to Downtown Disney you will find there are less people. It gets busier on the weekends. So if you do go on the weekends arrive early in the day to maximize your time.
- It can get hot in Southern California plus add a mask so remember that when you’re planning your visit. There is not much shade in the heat of the day. Keep this in mind as you decide what time to go. Check my Amazon park items list for my favorite Disney fan to keep you cool!

Thanks for all your help and knowledge! ☺️☺️ @ashley__sou
Very informative thank you for all the updates! We are waiting patiently to get back to Disney!
Looking forward to visiting now that Buena Vista Street is open, just to stroll the parts of streets that are open will hopefully provide a much needed Disneyland fix! @lady_pugsley on ig
I am so glad Downtown Disney is running, but I just cannot wait to visit Buena Vista Street. We need a little Disney magic these days, and I’ll take it anyway I can! Instagram name: @snazzysnazz 😊
Thank you for all this!! I can’t wait to go and probably cry walking down buena vista street! Waiting for the hype to die down! @erinsathre

I cannot wait to go back to DTD. I was there in August and October, but would love to go at Christmas time!
I love going to down town Disney and Disney Springs as much as the parks! The stores are fun to visit and eat at the various restaurants! Earl of Sandwich is of my favorite places!
My favorite part of returning to downtown Disney was not the stores..not the restaurants,.but..the cast members! Seeing them back in action at their happy place just makes me so happy!
Looking forward to Buena Vista St!
Loved your blog post. I followed you and your sister-in-law’s trip to WDW a few weeks ago. I lived vicariously through your stories. Thanks for bringing magic to your followers.
My insta is marissa.lynn.todd for the giveaway
Thanks for always keeping us updated on the latest stuff. Hoping to make it out there in January.😊
Thank you for the tips! I can’t wait to go one day!
Love walking and looking at the decorations and listening to music entering Worl of Disney store
Thanks for all the tips!
I’m staying at the Anaheim hotel this coming week, I usually stay in a Hilton. But since it’s so close, we’re gonna give it a try. Plus the price wasn’t too much of a difference!
The closer the better cause my pregnant self cannot do the long walks😅
I previously posted, but I wanted to add that I’m really excited to get into Buena vista street!!
I sure hope that the white Christmas tree popcorn bucket comes to downtown Disney now that Burns Vista Street is open! (Instagram: laurenn_garciaa)
Thank you for your amazing tips!
Oh man, where do I start about downtown Disney?! I guess I’ll start by saying how much I miss it. My husband and I have yet to visit since this pandemic has started. The reason being is mainly because we have a 10 month old daughter born in January that we have just been very precautious about bringing out to public places. Of course we would love to bring her (we literally dreamed about the day we would have a child of our own to share the Disney magic with) but are waiting until we feel much more comfortable with the idea. I personally love the holiday/seasonal decor in downtown Disney, as well as the food. I was actually pretty sad when they were closing down Earl of Sandwich, because we loved going there to grab a bite before heading into the parks. So glad they reopened it.
Just want to say thanks so much for sharing your adventures at all the parks and of course tips, it’s fun and interesting to follow along with you. We live a couple hours away from Disneyland in California but hope to go to Walt Disney when our daughter is 3 or 4. Hope to use a lot of your tips for vacationing there.
I couldn’t remember if I had an underscore or period. It’s a period. 🤦🏻♀️😜
Missing Down Town disney 😢 nicey_luv
I miss going to Downtown Disney! @bethbnault
Can’t wait to be there in two months! I’ve missed Disney and wish I lived closer! Love all your tips and knowledge! I love following you and living a little through your posts! Thank you!
Thank you for all that you do sharing your love of Disney! I miss downtown Disney so much, its always the first place we go on our arrival day of our Disneyland trips. A visit to WOD and Tortilla Joe’s
I absolutely loved our visit to Downtown Disney. I followed all of your tips as to wear to park. Getting into virtual ques. Everything!! It was awesome the steps they are taking made me feel safe. Visiting the stores getting to see Mickey at the entrance to Disneyland. The food the music. Made me miss it even more. @valenzuela7335
Ah I’m just missing Disney magic! @hcdavis3
I’m so excited to visit sometime soon! Instagram: @tinkgirl831
I would to win the gift card, I have yet to eat there! I’m excited to visit when everything is back to normal.
Haven’t been to downtown Disney since the spring and miss it so much! I can’t wait to get back and walk through World of Disney. One of my favorite modes of transportation was taking the tram from downtown Disney into the park.
This post makes me want to go to Disneyland!! Gosh I just love Disneyland!! disneyland_4
Thank you so much for the helpful information. We hope to go in the first half of next year for my daughters birthday! 🤞🏻 @meganr_28
THANK YOU Disneylandtourguide for posting all that you do! You make it so much easier for me to make my plans! I was so excited to return to Downtown Disney! When my husband and I went, it was not busy at all. We literally walked straight to get our temperature checked and the dog sniffed us and we walked straight in. It felt so wonderful walking in. I teared up. Then as we were walking out by ESPN the music started to play from the Little Mermaid…I wanna be, where the people are…..and I lost it. I couldnt stop crying. It just got me so emotional. My family has been through a lot almost losing my dad to Covid 19 but because of God and the plasma donor my dads life was spared even though he had less than 20% chance of life. So to feel the joy we did going to Downtown Disney… it felt wonderful. We will be back to visit Buena Vista!
Thanks for all the tips. Hopefully I’m husband and I make it to BVS soon! From cholas1972
I wish I could to go DTD for Christmas time! I went for Halloween time but there is something about being there for Christmas time that seems even more magical if that makes sense! Thank you for always sharing your experiences with us all. Your posts, stories, and blog posts are so helpful! 👏🏽🙌🏽
Can’t wait to visit again.
I love being able to experience some of the magic in downtown while Disneyland is closed. OPEN THE GATES ALREADY!!! My pass is getting dusty!

I am so happy that a Disney theme park is open, even if it is just for shopping. There’s only one problem, I’m from Canada, and the borders are closed

I am so happy that a Disney theme park is open, even if it is just for shopping. There’s only one problem, I’m from Canada, and the borders are closed, making travel to the United States impossible.

Great tips! I’m going next weekend. @shannin_19
New follower here and really appreciate the thoroughness of your posts and blogs! Great tip on making dining reservations to ensure entry. Here’s to hoping people follow the rules and CA can see that Disney can open up safely!
I wish I could go to DTD !!! I’m a huge Disney fan but working full time and being a full time student takes a toll and no time to go to DTD 🙁
I’ve been to downtown Disney since you posted on Instagram stories that you went with your kids, and I loved it. I was hesitant at first because of Covid but Disney has made it so safe for all to enjoy in a safe way
Thank you for sharing all Disney details
I love your Instagram Stories they are fun and so full of information thanks for all you do!
I’m going to Downtown Disney with my BFF in a couple of weeks! Can’t wait. Woo hoo!
Thank you Shantelle! I appreciate your content and cannot wait to get back to DTD or Disney Springs!

Downtown Disney is a wonderful way to get a piece of Disney magic. I’ve gone several times for dinner and to shop. Each time I have felt extremely safe at all times. Looking forward to going back for Buena Vista St. and being back in DCA.
Love this blog post! Super helpful as im very visual and I love the pictures of all the in person signage. We are hoping to go in May of 2021 with our two boys ages 3 and 2 months, so this is great!
Love downtown Disney and happy that buena vista street is now open to enhance the experience too!!
Thank you for this guide! Tried going to DD a few weeks ago and it was at capacity, using your tip of making a restaurant reservation and hoping we can see all the holiday magic! ❤️❤️
Thanks for the tips! @hanbananza
You give such incredibly detailed info that is so much appreciated! Such time savers! I’m excited to go back to DTD asap and the dining reservation is the best tip yet to guarantee getting in! Hoping everyone follows the rules so DL can open fully soon. Would love to win the dining gift card. Hope you & yours stay safe & healthy this holiday season.
I miss everything about Disneyland and Downtown Disney! We are headed to Disneyworld in March to get our Disney fix! @heather92007
I love their QR stations. Walk up, scan and that’s all. Safer for everyone
Missing Downtown Disney so much!
My mom and I LOVE to just drink coffee and listen to the music in DTD! We love that you can still feel the magic there! @hannaraexo
Missing Downtown Disney so much!
Our family loves Downtown Disney. I feel like they have taken a lot of precautions to make people feel safe. I can’t wait to see the holiday decorations.
I can’t wait to go back! I love seeing all things Disney through your Instagram for the time being. – elivict
I can’t wait to go back soon!! Thank you for sharing the info!
I love everything about downtown Disney.. the smells, the sounds & all the fun shops and places to stop for food and treats. My fav place to eat down there is Earl of Sandwich. Walking through downtown Disney is like the preview of going into Disneyland! Miss being there 😭
Forgot my IG tag… @brelam2010
I’ve had so much fun my last few trips to Downtown Disney! These tips are super helpful! I can’t wait to visit Buena Vista though, looking forward to that 💖
I LOVE everything about DTD!! How can you not!! When we first started going to Disneyland many years ago, we would always go to DTD the night we got to Anaheim. My kids would be so excited! It was so fun to stroll through all the stores, especially the biggest Disney store ever…World of Disney!!
Cant wait to visit Earl of Sandwich and Buena ista Street this week! Do you think it will be crowded? I do! Amy @fort_mort
Cant wait to visit Earl of Sandwich this week! Amy @fort_mort
Thanks for all the tips you give!!! I love seeing what you have to say and then planning out my trips to the parks.
This has some super helpful info! Would love the earl of sandwich gift card to try their food for the first time!!!
What’s your fave Earl of Sandwich sammie?
I can’t wait to get back to Disneyland once it opens!! Thank you for sharing all your Disney goodness with us 🤗 ashleyadeline11
Your blogs are so helpful! Right now I am savouring any taste of Disney I can get! We are from Canada so unfortunately cannot get even a little fix right now. Downtown Disney is always our first stop as soon as we check in to our hotel. We rarely get to Anaheim before 7pm after a day of flights but we drop off our bags and head over to start the magic. We always scope out all the new ears and find a pair for our first park day the next day, and we always head to Earl of Sandwich for a late dinner. It has become a tradition for us and we CANNOT wait until we are finally able to do it again!
Typo in my Instagram handle lol
Thank you for this informative post! I love downtown Disney. 💕
Can’t wait!!! I’m heading there in December!!!
Can’t wait to go back! We typically visit for Halloween and after realizing DL wasn’t opening we booked WDW for January! @kellifoos
Oh oops it’s @kelli.foos 🤪
I love wondering around and shopping at Downtown Disney. Can’t wait to get back!
My family and I have been visiting DTD about every two weeks just to keep that Disney feeling. We have not been to buena vista yet – maybe in a week when it’s calmed down a bit.
Thank you for all your tips snd shares.
Love love Downtown Disney. Can’t wait to visit Buena Vista street, but prob not till our first time to WDW in January! Only a few weeks for some Disney magic we’ve been missing for 8 months here!
Thank you so much for all the time and effort you out in to sharing scout Disney. It helps so much! I can’t wait to be back in the parks. All the tips help me feel like I’ll be ready when the time is right!!! #givethanks
Thank you for all your wisdom!!! @staceymarietown
Downtown Disney definitely does a good job with social distancing and regulating visitors about the proper way to wear masks. As someone with an annual pass, Downtown Disney makes me miss the atmosphere of Disneyland and DCA but it does justice to the point where the music soothes my soul from this hardship we’re all going through. Super grateful to have Downtown Disney open. My instagram is @iisjessicaa
Downtown Dinsney is so fun! My family loves the beignets at Jazz Kitchen! We are going to WDW in December! We could totally use the gift card in Disney Springs! Thanks! @gfdisneymom
Good info! Wish we could go.
Love all of your info and especially appreciate all the photos! I hope to make it out there at some point. @amals104
Such a helpful post! I am looking forward to visiting during the holiday season for some yummy treats and you answered so many of my questions! Thank you!

First and foremost…love the page and all the content!! Thanks for sharing all your Disney adventures and tips – especially the food!!
Favorite thing about Downtown Disney is how even during this pandemic it can bring so much joy to everyone ☺️ It’s hard to keep a mask on all day or be away from the Parks, but even just cruising thru Downtown with music and people (socially distanced of course) can bring so much joy! Plus the long waits and lines are just like the Park!!
Thanks for the tips!!
Love getting that little taste of Disneyland at Downtown Disney! Been going as much as possible at can’t wait to go visit Buena Vista Street tomorrow! jillstewart_
Thank you for always posting fun and informative posts about all things Disney!

Heading to CA this week, moved out of state at the beginning of Covid and cannot wait to go back!! Have been waiting for this!! Will miss Disneyland, but so excited to see all the Christmas decor at downtown Disney!
We’ve been back to downtown Disney a couple time now, I love walking through the shops, and hear the Disney music. Can’t wait for the day that’s we can go back in the parks. @traskforce4

Since the parks are closed for regular business, just being in Downtown Disney makes me feel like I am enjoying a little bit of “normal”. I hope to go next week to attempt a visit to Buena Vista Street in DCA. Thank you for sharing your experiences. They help us all.
Love all that you do, always look forward to your posts.
All of your tips are super helpful , my favorite was your tips on rider switch rides!

Than you for all the info and updates you share with everyone. For some disney magic i guess buena vista is better than nothing. I need a road trip to Anaheim asap.
I miss Disneyland so much and I’m excited that we can finally visit California adventure Buena vista street! Its a first step in possibly reopening again. We’re planning to visit on Sunday, so I’m hoping to win the gift card. Crossing my fingers and good luck to everyone who entered! 🤞 if I do win my Instagram name is @nurse_jits. 🤗
Love that your in AZ like me . I so badly need a lunch day at downtown Disney and some Christmas shopping . I miss the parks being open
I am so excited to go visit again now that DCA is open on Buena Vista St! I’ve been a couple times already, but being inside a park again seems so much more magical!

I love following you! Had it not been for your posts about making dinning reservations on a Saturday afternoon, I would have waited over two hours to get into DTD. Because of my reservation I waited 45 minutes in line.
