...Along with Earl of Sandwich, Sugarboo, and that Starbucks.
The Downtown Disney District at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif., is about to embark on its next evolution of innovative shopping, dining and entertainment experiences.
Back in 2018, the Downtown Disney District began a renaissance by opening several dynamic new restaurants and shops such as Splitsville Luxury Lanes, Ballast Point Brewing Co., Salt & Straw, Black Tap Craft Burgers & Shakes, the redesigned Wetzel’s Pretzels, a fully-renovated California Sole, and the renovated Naples Ristorante e Bar and Napolini Pizzeria. The district brought even more Disney to this Southern California destination with the complete reimagination of World of Disney, the ultimate one-stop shop for favorite Disney merchandise, along with Disney Home and The Disney Dress Shop.
Continuing that momentum, the Disneyland Resort is planning a multi-year project to take Downtown Disney District to the next level, with work beginning in January 2022. Kicking off the project, the former AMC Theatres building and adjacent area will be completely transformed into a stunning new lifestyle space. Drawing inspiration from Southern California mid-century modern architecture, the area will be a beautiful blend of vibrant color palettes, multi-cultural design elements and patterns, an open lawn for relaxation and future events, and an even broader collection of dining and shopping.
To accommodate this work, Earl of Sandwich, Sugarboo & Co. and Starbucks Coffee on the west end of the district will close in late January 2022. The Starbucks location on the east end near World of Disney will remain open.
