    Is Downtown Disney limited to California Residents only at this time?

    Hey there, hi there, ho there Alli! Thanks for stopping by planDisney where you're always welcome as can be. 

    Upon reopening, the theme parks at the Disneyland Resort will only be welcoming California residents; however, ALL are welcome to enjoy unique shopping and dining experiences in the Downtown Disney District. If you're looking for a bit of Disney magic to keep you going until you can once again visit Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park, spending time at World of Disney®, the Disneyland Resort Backlot Premiere Shop, and more might be just what you need! Be sure to review the Know Before You Go information page so you're up to date on the latest health and safety measures.

    Another thing you'll want to do before hitting the town is to download the official Disneyland app. In addition to the theme parks, it's useful in the Downtown Disney District as well! You'll have access to the latest information on nearby dining and retail locations as well as restaurant menus and reservation availability. 

    It also helps to have a smartphone handy in case the stores are particularly busy. At times, Disney may utilize a mobile waitlist system to manage capacity. After scanning a QR code located outside a store or leaving your name and number with a Cast Member at the store entrance, you'll receive an approximate return time to let you know when it's your turn to browse intergalactic treasures or pick up a few of my kids' newest favorite Disney souvenEAR, nuiMOs

    I hope this is helpful, and that you have a wonderful visit to the Downtown Disney District during your visit to Southern California. Thanks for stopping by planDisney, and we hope to see ya real soon!
