Disneyland is filled with the best rides, restaurants, and experiences. As the first Park that Walt Disney pioneered, walking down Main Street, U.S.A., has a different nostalgia feel. The fun runs well through the hotels and Downtown Disney, leaving every part of Disney magical. Downtown Disney, similar to Disney Springs, has become an adventure all in itself. With many options for dining, shopping, and entertainment, there is something for everyone.
Recently, Downtown Disney announced new experiences coming to the district that lives at the Disneyland Resort. Disney announced the reimagining of Downtown Disney in the years to come. New additions will be “Porto’s Bakey & Cafe, Din Tai Fung, Paseo, and Centrico, and a dynamic open lawn,” as detailed on the site. In addition to these new experiences are the newly announced dining and entertainment options now open at Downtown Disney.
Jazz Kitchen Coastal Grill & Patio and Beignets Expressed
Originally Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen has been reimagined into Jazz Kitchen Coastal Grill & Patio “after nearly two decades”. The French Quarter cuisine still delivers delicious, iconic food with a new menu. Along with their new menu is their new name and new look to the restaurant. If you are looking for a dessert or snack, look no further than Beignets Expressed. They offer classic and glazed beignets and even feature a glazed of the month, with June 1-30, 2023, being a rainbow crunch beignet.
Clyde’s Hot Chicken
One of Downtown Disney’s newest quick service options features a tasty Nashville chicken on a stick. There are three spice-level options, along with dipping sauces and sliced pickles. They are open from 11 a.m. to 12 a.m., making this a great snack or meal before heading into the Parks.
A new place to relax and enjoy live entertainment is The Alley! Here situated next to Splitsville, this space will offer live music, interactive games, lounging, and dining areas. This fun new spot is a great place to enjoy some downtime with your crew after a long day in the Parks.
Sounds like it’s time for a visit to Downtown Disney in the very near future!
