this place is awesome! I love wandering through all of the stores here. There are tons of free music shows along the strip - guitarists and singers and more
Don't forget to stop by the Jazz Kitchen Express for some of their beignets. Also, just about all of the restaurants here serve yummy food, although it is all a bit pricey.
There is free parking for 3 hours here, and $6 per hour afterwards. If you eat here, you can get your ticket validated for another 2 hours free.
If you're only going to Disneyland for a few hours and don't want to pay the $15 for parking, go ahead and park in Downtown Disney. You can hop onto the monorail into Disneyland, or go through the Grand Californian into California Adventure. Free parking AND convenient. Just act cool - cast members don't usually check beyond asking you if you are "just going to Downtown Disney." Heh.

i really loved this place! it was the first time i got to enjoy everything they had to offer since it had been 10 years since my last visit.
i love that it was accessible from every hotel and had access to both disney parks. we stayed at the disneyland hotel and since it was at the opposite end of it was a great excuse to walk downtown disney every day. the darn smell of kettle corn is enough to make you go completely crazy, in a good way. the crowds were smaller than imagined and people were really friendly. the hot milfs were everywhere of course and that can drive a guy crazy for sure. the place is loaded with great places to eat and has some pretty cool shops of course. i hit up everything downtown disney has to offer so take notes on the good and bad!
anne geddes- who else besides me thinks this place is creepy? i can see that getting your baby a cute outfit is a must but they took it way too far. there is absolutely no need to dress them up like fruit n vegetables, bee's, bears, bunnies or ladybugs! what is with you people these days? the way you humiliate your pets and kids by dressing them up in ridiculous costumes will come back to haunt you someday.
compass books- being the only bookstore in downtown disney you would think this would be the ultimate place for books. i found this quite the opposite and found they concentrate more on being a coffee shop than anything else. i love cookbooks and i was very disappointed in their selection. i'm not even sure if i can really call it a selection. they had one top shelf of cookbooks with only about 10 different titles if that.
fossil- looking around the store you can see they have so much to offer like sunglasses, handbags, belts, watches, wallets and so much more. i was definitely all about the watches for sure. they have the best selection i have seen as far as fossil watches go. back here where i live i only see them at macy's so the selection is pretty bad. i got me a brand new watch and cheap!
starabilias- this is one of the best shops to look at in the downtown disney district. i'm not sure if you can actually call it a shop but more of a pop culture heaven. another reason i wouldn't exactly call it a shop is because you won't see me buying anything here often, i wish i could afford to buy some of this great stuff here.
world of disney- this store is way too big for me! i couldn't believe the size of this place. if those little kids in china can pump out the disney merchandise fast enough you'll find it here for sure. this is the place where you can get anything disney you need without actually going into the park. of course most of the people that shop here tell there friends they got it at disneyland. surprisingly the prices at the park are cheaper than at this store but the selection here is stellar.
uva bar- it was great to sit outside at night and enjoy all of the holiday decorations and live music. the food is delish, the drinks are flowing and the milfs are everywhere. with the great amount of food and selection these prices were right in my ballpark. $5 soups, $7 salads, $9 flatbreads, $9 meats, $9 seafood and $6 sandwiches. wow! for the entire experience this is the best deal in the entire resort. so many options for everyone and especially the picky eaters.
rainforest cafe- JUST SKIP IT! YUCK!
espn zone- save yourself some time and money and pick up a 6 pack of beer, a bottle of booze and watch espn from your hotel room.
la brea bakery cafe- great little spot for breakfast.

This Downtown Disney area is one where I feel CA has it over FL.
The promenade area is pleasant and easy to walk around where the one in FL is more meandering and therefore easier to walk into the oncoming path of people.
The stores here are fun. Having three Disney resort hotels and two theme parks within walking distance makes this an excellent Downtown area. If I get a little tired here and am looking for some quiet, it's easy to walk into the Grand Californian and plop into a chair within the lobby.
There are several restaurants to choose from as well making this a one stop shop location for thrills, shopping, food and drinks.

Best of both worlds!
On one hand you got Disney everything..
mickey mouse gloves, kid memories, a lego store and mroe.
On the other hand you got more mature pursuits...
a movie theater, House of Blues, bars, bars, bars and drinks galore!
What more could you want?
Oh look.. it's right next to both Disney and California Adventure for day time fun and within stumbling distance of my hotel for continued nightly excitement!
