As we try to patiently wait for any news of a possible Disneyland reopening date, having the Downtown Disney District open surely helps. With their shopping and dining options, it’s been good to have a little slice of the Disney magic with the parks being closed. Now, with the help of a new shopping opportunity, Guests will be able to step foot inside Disney California Adventure.
Disney Parks Blog announced that as an extension to the Downtown Disney District, the Disneyland Resort Backlot Premiere Shop will be coming soon to Disney California Adventure Park’s Stage 17! Keep in mind that Guests will enter the shop through the back area of Stage 17 adjacent to the Disneyland Esplanade and not through the actual front park entrance. So even though we won’t get to enter the theme park like we normally would, this is still a great opportunity to get your Disney fix.
Stage 17 in the Hollywood Land Backlot in Disney California Adventure is a space where events for media or even weddings are often held. But the purpose of this event, Disney is considering Stage 17 somewhat of an extension of Downtown Disney.
This all new shop will provide similar items to that of the World of Disney and also have seasonal collections for Guests to choose from. There will be plenty of collectible pins, Loungefly mini backpacks, ear headbands, and so much more!
Although we don’t currently have an opening day for the Disneyland Backlot Premiere Shop, we do know that it will be implementing the same reservation and wait system that is currently being used for World of Disney and other retail shops in the Downtown Disney District. This information is according to the Disney Parks website:
To save you time and promote physical distancing, some of our Downtown Disney District shops such as World of Disney, Disney Home, The Disney Dress Shop, Marceline’s Confectionery and the Disneyland Resort Backlot Premiere Shop coming to Stage 17 may use a mobile wait list at times to manage the number of guests shopping within these stores. You may choose to provide your name and mobile phone number to receive a text message for a two-hour window in which you may return.**
