The shop is located in Disney California Adventure Park’s Stage 17 and is available to all Guests visiting the Downtown Disney District!

The Disneyland Backlot Premiere Shop will be an extension to the Downtown Disney District as Guests will be able to enter Stage 17 through an entrance adjacent to the Disneyland Esplanade. Even just getting to enter a small section of the park, though it’s not the official entrance, is very exciting!

The Disneyland Backlot Premiere Shop will carry items that you would normally find in the World of Disney store at the Downtown District. However, this shop’s current spotlight theme is Halloween! Guests will be able to find all of their Halloween essentials at this new shop.

For all your need to know on this new shopping experience, the Disneyland website offers the following information:

You’re invited to scope out the latest and greatest gear in the newly transformed Stage 17, now accessible from the Downtown Disney District.

To meet fan demand, we’re debuting the Disneyland Resort Backlot Premiere Shop—a new way for you to browse the same beloved seasonal collections available at World of Disney and other select Downtown Disney locations.

These curated products will only be featured for a limited time, so check back here often to discover what’s new.

Note: theme park admission/reservation not required for entry and standard discounts apply.

Also, it is important keep in mind that Guests will need to join a virtual queue similar to the ones for World of Disney and other Downtown District retail areas.
