Downtown Disney District
Sandwiched between the two theme parks, Disneyland and California Adventure, Downtown Disney is a long stretch of shopping and dining facilities. There's an amazing tapas joint conveniently located on the strip, so it makes for a great meal in between park-hopping! There's also a grande Disney store for all your Disney necessities and random confectionery and sweet shops for your sweet tooth. To add to the shopping list, there's a Sephora, House of Blues with live jazz bands, ESPN zone, Rainforest Cafe, Illuminations Candle House, Fossil, LEGO Imagination Center, and the list goes on... It's a fun and happening place at any time of the day, especially during the summer months when the kiddos are out of school and tourists are in full-swing. There are daily fireworks in the evening, so relax on one of the open-air restaurant terraces and experience sheer magic!
