Downtown Disney

Downtown Disney is celebrating it’s 20th anniversary with some exciting changes coming and plenty of extra reason to visit!

From new locations, amazing merchandise, tasty food and photo-ops, Downtown Disney District at Disneyland has something for everyone!

This year there are two big reasons to visit:

  • The Star Wars Trading Post: You will find it a new location at the west end of Downtown Disney District that used to be the home of the Rainforest Cafe. The themed will be inspired by Yavin 4, a hidden jungle Resistance base and it will even include Rey’s iconic speeder displayed at the entrance!
  • WonderGround Gallery: Reopening soon, this location offers housewares, headbands, spirit jerseys, along with a unique collection of art, gifts and collectibles!

Disney hasn’t released opening dates for this location yet but we hope they can announced them soon.
