The Shops of Main Street, U.S.A.: Disneyana

The next time you enter Disneyland park, you’ll want to make Disneyana the first stop of your day. Located next to the iconic “Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln” in the Disneyland Opera House, Disneyana pays homage to the old-fashioned art galleries of Walt Disney’s youth.

While this cosmopolitan shop has called Main Street, U.S.A., home for many years, in 2013 with the expansion of the Market House it relocated down the street to Town Square and into an elegant new space inside the Bank of Main Street building.

For the Disney memorabilia collector in your party, Disneyana is a must-see. This location offers a unique array of rare Disney collectables including limited-edition fine art, figurines and paintings. Here you’ll also find print-on-demand kiosks, ink and paint cels and artist sketches. Disneyana is often the spot of artist signings and specialty merchandise events.

In 2012, we stopped by to chat with Disney Sketch Artist David Mitchell at Disneyana’s previous location. Fast forward to 2016, and you can still find these highly-skilled and talented artists inside the current location, creating beautiful hand-drawn sketches of Disney characters.

Did I mention just next door in the lobby of the Disneyland Opera House you’ll also find The Disney Gallery and The Disneyland Story exhibit? Next time you visit Disneyana, stop by and take a look at the seasonal exhibits and the amazing concept art and models created by Imagineers and Disney-inspired artists.

  • Definitely one of my must visit stores everytime I am in the park. While I love the quick sketches, giclee prints and original paintings, I’m always hoping to find something new or a rerelease of Olszewski Disneyland miniatures. Erin, you’ll be my new best friend if you tell me that Fantasyland will be completed, or if any or the Main Street USA or Fantasyland pieces will be released again…

  • One of our favorite places to shop in the park! My daughters love the sketches sold here. The signs, attraction art, and paintings are great!

  • I love disneyana! It’s one of my first stops when going in the park! And also off the page in DCA is a good one too!

  • My daughters have a few sketches from David and had a chance to meet him as well. He took pictures with my girls and was just a gracious man! Thank you for creating such great magic!

  • Disneyana is my favorite store and the sketch artists are the best ever! They are so fun to watch and talk to and they even do sketches that glow! Annie is such a great artist and Megan always has pins to trade. I always make sure to stop by when I visit Disneyland.

  • This is one of my favorite stores in both parks! Although there is a lot of overlap with “Off the Page” (in DCA) and “Wonderground” (in DtD) sometimes…
