We’re BACK at Downtown Disney for another exciting roundup of all the latest arrivals!
From fall treats to TONS of new merchandise (including CHRISTMAS merchandise, friends!), we have a full agenda of things to cover, so let’s jump right in!
Downtown Disney General and Construction Updates
As Buena Vista Street in California Adventure prepares to reopen for guests to shop and dine at, more “permanent” signage was installed yesterday at the main gates in front of the park! At this time we don’t have an exact date in November for when the location will reopen, but at least we know we’re within a matter of WEEKS from once again strolling through California Adventure!
Speaking of new signage, the health and safety signs that we have seen throughout Downtown Disney now have Spanish versions. This is one of the updates that was suggested to Disneyland by county health officials.
While there are plenty of new signs at Downtown Disney, there was one sign that we noticed was REMOVED from the shopping and dining district. We previously announced that the VOID was permanently closed in both Downtown Disney as well as Disney Springs, and now its main sign has been removed from the building’s facade.
The sign was already removed from its former Disney Springs location. It looks like much is changing in the Downtown Disney area ahead of Buena Vista Street’s reopening!
Downtown Disney Food Updates
Disneyland beignets are a quintessential west-coast snack. Not only can you find Mickey-shaped beignets inside the parks, but Downtown Disney also serves up some seriously scrumptious versions of their own at Jazz Kitchen Express.
This counter service location recently reopened, and you can now sample a TRIO of seasonal dipping sauces with your beignets: Praline-Maple Anglaise, Caramel Apple, and BOO-Berry.
For an additional $1.49 per sauce, Disneyland’s warm and fresh beignets just became one of our favorite fall treats!
This is a spooky twist on their classic toffee (another Disneyland must-have snack), topped with pumpkin spice and orange sugar
The Pumpkin-Spiced Toffee is only around through October 31st, so hurry on over to Downtown before it disappears!
Downtown Disney Merchandise Updates
Buckle in…because we have a LOT of new merchandise to cover!
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Trading Outpost
We found a collection of new t-shirts, pins, and other collectibles from the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Trading Outpost, which recently took over WonderGround Gallery in Downtown Disney. The first t-shirt we spotted is actually an Annual Passholder-exclusive t-shirt in the style of one of the coasters you receive when visiting Oga’s Cantina. This t-shirt retails for $36.99.
Speaking of coasters, we found another t-shirt that features all of the designs you can get inside Galaxy’s Edge, also for $36.99.
Your new coasters t-shirt will match this pin set that we spotted at the Trading Outpost! The set of four pins costs $27.99.
If you’re into collecting jumbo pins, we found a new Dejarik holochess pin at the Trading Outpost! This hefty pin retails for $59.99.
We may not be able to visit Batuu West for the time being, but we can still stock up on plenty of Galaxy’s Edge swag!

World of Disney
Christmas has officially arrived at Downtown Disney!
Most if not all of the merchandise we spotted at World of Disney can also be found in Disney World, including everyone’s favorite, the fuzzy Crocs! They’re available at World of Disney for $54.99.
We also spotted the new spirit jersey cardigan sweater, also known as the “grandpa” sweater. This unique spirit jersey retails for $119.99.
Christmas wasn’t the only collection we spotted in World of Disney. The new Wishes Come True Blue collection in partnership with the Make a Wish Foundation was also fully stocked in World of Disney!
The collection at Downtown Disney features all of the same items we’ve seen in Disney World: spirit jerseys, Loungefly backpacks, leggings, Minnie Ears…
…and of course, the spirit jersey face masks! The masks retail for $12.99.
Speaking of face masks, we spotted a TON of new masks in World of Disney, all with the new fabric that was released recently to rave reviews. One of our favorite new patterns has got to be this “it’s a small world” designs! Each mask, as always, retails for $6.00.
We also spotted the newest must-have accessory to your keyring: a door hook! These heavy-duty hooks can be used to open doors without having to touch any surfaces. It’s a great tool if you’re looking to be extra careful during these times! We spotted Mickey, Minnie, Stitch, and Haunted Mansion designs available for $12.99.
The newest Wishables collection has also arrived at Downtown Disney. We spotted the Beauty and the Beast collection already in Disney World, and now you can find the newest plush cuties on the west coast, too! The Beast Wishables as well as the mystery bags retail for $9.99.
We also spotted everyone’s favorite Madame Leota sipper! These sold like hot cakes in Disney World, and made a surprise appearance at a reserved shopping experience in Downtown Disney. Now she’s available for everyone to purchase! She’s available at World of Disney while supplies last for $17.99.
Finally, we found a few new ceramic Starbucks tumblers to add to your growing collection of Disney mugs and drinkware! There was the classic Christmas design which we also found in Disney World, as well as new tumblers for both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure! The DCA design even includes Avengers Campus!
Each of the tumblers retails for $24.99. World of Disney is also selling ornament versions of each of the tumblers for $14.99.
Studio 17 Backlot
After we had our fill of World of Disney, we stopped by the new Studio 17 Backlot store, which is located in Studio 17 within the perimeter of Disney California Adventure. This extension of Downtown Disney is currently used for overflow traffic with the merchandise you can find throughout the other shops. So, we didn’t find too many unique merchandise items here! We did, however, see it transform into a Christmas wonderland!
We did spot more of the Madame Leota sippers in stock, as well as the Peppermint Loungefly mini backpacks.
We also found the newest Haunted Mansion Dooney & Bourke collection!
This Dooney & Bourke collection was also in stock at the Dress Shop, which was our next stop in our trip around Downtown Disney!
The Dress Shop was also full of new merchandise! This is your go-to destination for trendy Disney style! For a more casual look, we spotted some new tops! First up is a pair of Snow White-inspired shirts. This cute t-shirt with all of the dwarfs’ names retails for $36.99.
As the nights grow chillier, layer up with this Snow White pullover hoodie! It’s available at the Dress Shop for $44.99.
If Sleeping Beauty is more your cup of tea, we also found a couple of tops to add to your wardrobe! This Maleficent tank made us scratch our heads (It’s “Now you shall deal with me,” right? Not “Now shall you deal with me”?). The tank top is currently available at the Dress Shop for $34.99.
If that’s all too confusing, you can layer it with this sweatshirt featuring the three fairies from Sleeping Beauty. The sweatshirt retails for $39.99.
We also found the newest Kate Spade x Disney collection in the Dress Shop on our most recent trip!
We also spotted this collection in Disney World, so we’re thrilled to know it’s available on both coasts now! The new Black Widow dress and jacket from Her Universe also appeared in the Dress Shop, after arriving in Disney World.
The dress retails for $128.00, and the jacket retails for $84.99.
Last but not least, we swung by Pin Traders to see what new pins we could uncover! We spotted the limited edition Disney Disguises mystery set. For $19.99, you get two pins…one you can see when you purchase, but the other is a surprise!
We also spotted some leftover pins from the Fantasyland collection at one of the recent reserved shopping experiences at the former location of ESPN Zone! The jumbo Sleeping Beauty Castle pin is currently available for $44.99.
There were also several Halloween pins available for purchase! One of our favorites is definitely this Hocus Pocus pin, which retails for $15.99.
While we can’t celebrate holidays like Halloween in Disneyland, we can at the very least commemorate our favorite days of the year with limited edition pins!
WHEW! That was a mighty full roundup of new merchandise, food, and more at Downtown Disney! With the holiday season just days from kicking off, there are plenty of new things to see and do at Disneyland’s shopping and dining district. And with Buena Vista Street preparing to reopen for guests, soon there will be even MORE to do! So be sure to check back as we continue to report on all the magic happening on the west coast!
