The holidays have arrived at the Disneyland Resort! Well, at least to the areas that guests currently have access to. While the theme parks remain closed, Downtown Disney is available for shopping and outdoor dining, and this Thursday, Buena Vista Street will also reopen!
Let’s take a look at some of the seasonal dining and shopping guests can take part in!
When it comes to food, Downtown Disney has got you covered. If you’re looking to embrace all things Thanksgiving, you can enjoy a limited-time Thanksgiving Burger at Black Tap Craft Burgers & Shakes. There, you can also pick up a Chocolate Peppermint Cheesecake. Also for dessert, try the Salted Thanksgiving Turkey or Sweet Potato ice cream flavors at Salt & Straw.
La Brea Bakery will also serve seasonal spirits including the Merry Manhattan, the Tinsel-Tini, a Mistletoe Margarita, the Joyful Daiquiri, and the Jolly Old Fashioned.
You can also celebrate Thanksgiving with Earl of Sandwich’s Holiday Turkey Sandwich, a year-round menu staple! Other holiday treats at Downtown Disney include a White Christmas Churro from California Churro, a snowman macaron from Kayla’s Cake, a holiday pretzel from Wetzel’s Pretzels, and caramel apples and peppermint marshmallow wands from Marceline’s Confectionary!
You can ALSO enjoy these infamous caramel apples and marshmallow wands from Trolley Treats on Buena Vista Street! Speaking of Buena Vista Street, Carthay Circle Lounge – Alfresco Dining will be available for guests looking for a leisurely outdoor table service dining experience. Note that the Alfresco Lounge will be using a mobile waitlist system and will not be taking advance reservations at this time.
And don’t forget about your holiday shopping! There are plenty of spots to score the latest Disney merchandise throughout Downtown Disney, including World of Disney, Backlot Premiere Shop, Elias & Co. on Buena Vista Street, The Disney Dress Shop, Disney Home, and Julius Katz & Sons, also reopening on Buena Vista Street!
If you’re looking for even more season-specific goodies, Rinse Bath & Body Co. is selling Spiced Cranberry handcrafted soaps and lotion sticks. Now you and all your friends can smell like the holidays! If you’re visiting Downtown Disney this holiday season, be sure to check out their Toys for Tots gift drive!
