Today, Downtown Disney District at the Disneyland Resort begins its phased reopening with a variety of specialty shopping and dining experiences.

The health and safety of guests, operating participant employees and Disney cast members are at the forefront of our planning. Several operational changes have been implemented based on guidance from health authorities to promote physical distancing and enhanced cleanliness throughout the Downtown Disney District. To learn more about what you can expect on your next visit, check out Disneyland.com/DTD.

To help guide you through these new measures, cast members from our Guest Experience Team are walking throughout the Downtown Disney District to help explain our new health and safety measures and answer any questions you may have. They, along with other Downtown Disney cast members, are on hand to encourage everyone to follow these measures for the health and safety of us all.

  • Hopefully when all of this pandemic is over we will get back to normal soon after all this is only temporary and I’m so happy that Downtown Disney is already opened I am so blessed to go there once more again to the magic

  • Count me in as another one who is so, so happy to see this! It was so wonderful to watch the footage of people returning to Downtown Disney yesterday — they were eating, shopping, reuniting with friends, laughing, thanking Cast Members for their hard work, etc. At least a couple of people were getting a bit misty-eyed because they were so happy to be back on Disneyland Resort property and experience just a little bit of Disney magic, and I can’t say I wouldn’t have done the same thing. It filled my heart with joy, although I was unable to be there in person.

    Now if only you could find a way to bring kiosks out into the Esplanade to sell foods associated with Disneyland and California Adventure — such as Dole Whips, Plaza Inn fried chicken, Mickey beignets, skewers, Mickey ice cream bars and sandwiches, Mickey pretzels, character popcorn buckets, corn dogs, etc….

  • I’m so happy to see the downtown Disney district Back to work again!

  • Happy to see this…. but please let us know when you’ll reopen the resorts and parks!! ❤️❤️❤️
