    We are in our very large truck and 5th wheel rv. Is there parking in your lot for us? Do we need an admission ticket to eat and shop on the outter area downtown Disney?

    Hello Julie, and a very warm welcome to planDisney

    It sounds like you’re already on a road trip to the Disneyland Resort, and will be arriving soon – how exciting! I checked with a Cast Member, and was told that you have several options depending on your situation. If you’re staying overnight at one of the Disneyland Resort Hotels, then you can speak with a parking attendant, who will show you where you can park your large truck and fifth-wheel RV. However, if you’re planning to park for the day or evening so you can visit the Downtown Disney District, then you’ll want to head toward the Toy Story Parking Area, a paid lot which is located at 1854 S. Harbor Boulevard, Anaheim, California, 92802. This is the location for recreational and oversized vehicle parking. You can enter this parking area from South Harbor Boulevard, West Katella Avenue, or South Haster Street. Just keep in mind that accommodations for overnight parking are not available. 

    Once you’ve parked, you can board a bus to take you on a short drive to the Disneyland Resort. You’ll be dropped off at The Esplanade, which is the area between Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. Continue straight past both theme parks to access Downtown Disney District, an outdoor shopping, entertainment, and dining area that is free to enter, with no admission ticket required. You will be required to pass through security prior to entering the Disneyland Resort property, and you will also need to wear a face mask on the bus on your way to the Resort. 

    My family was recently at Downtown Disney District, and we had a delicious meal at Naples Ristorante e Bar. My kids are obsessed with their Mac and Cheese, and I loved my Spaghetti and Meatballs! For dessert, I highly recommend stopping by the CrazyShake Window by Black Tap for an over-the-top milkshake you’ll never forget! My family loves The Cookie Shake

    I hope this information helps, Julie! Enjoy your Downtown Disney District adventures!
