More Retail Opening at Downtown Disney as Dining Closes

in Disneyland Resort

As a result of California Governor Gavin Newsom’s regional stay-at-home order for Southern California, Disneyland Resort has announced some major operational changes. 

The Downtown Disney District — including Buena Vista Street in Disney California Adventure — will no longer offer onsite dining. All food and beverage must be taken to-go and consumed off-property. You can read more here.

However, some good news for hopeful Disneyland Resort fans was also shared today: more shopping is expected to open.

The OC Register reports, “Downtown Disney plans to add additional retail locations in the coming days and weeks.”

So, what does this mean? Well, it may make sense for Disneyland Resort to open more shopping locations at Downtown Disney (including inside Disney California Adventure) — it would allow more Cast Members to work and still bring Guests to Disney property, even though onsite dining won’t be allowed.

We’re continuing to wait for Disneyland Resort to provide official updates when it comes to the available shopping at the Downtown Disney District. But after Off the Page recently reopened inside Disney California Adventure, we continue to remain hopeful that more offerings will be announced soon.
