Downtown Disney (formerly known as the Downtown Disney District) is an outdoor shopping, dining, and entertainment area, themed after a garden walk, located at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California. It was constructed during the Disneyland Resort expansion which also included the construction of Disney California Adventure, and opened on January 12, 2001.

Location and history

Downtown Disney District lies between the Disneyland Resort's two theme parks and its hotels. The district was built on space previously occupied by the original Disneyland parking lot and Disneyland Hotel, and includes a bridge over Disneyland Drive (formerly West Street, which was regraded to accommodate the bridge). It is smaller than its Florida counterpart and former namesake, which became Disney Springs in 2015. Currently, no admission ticket is required for Downtown Disney District.

California's Downtown Disney District was designed more to attract "locals" and to encourage extended stays in the resort district.

Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa and Disneyland Hotel adjoin Downtown Disney, and a new onsite hotel is slated to open in 2021 on land currently occupied by the west end of Downtown Disney. As such, several businesses are slated to close by June 30, 2018.[1] Downtown Disney's monorail station, originally built in 1961 as part of the Disneyland Hotel, will be replaced by a station located inside the new hotel.
