Downtown Disney Holiday Foodie Guide

Downtown Disney Holiday foodie guide has arrived! These jolly good eats and treats top off a merry good time during the holidays at Disneyland. 

2021 Holidays are back and all the treats that come with it! Every year the chefs and culinary teams at Disneyland Resort out-do themselves with peppermint flavors, pumpkin and holiday inspired goodness.

This year we’ll see partner properties at Downtown Disney show us their A game for the Holiday Season.

Holiday Season at Downtown Disney runs through early January 2021. And if you want to try everything here, you’re going to need a plan of attack. Be sure to jot down your favorites—along with their location before your visit.

Downtown Disney Holiday Treats

In 2021 there are tons of Holiday treats at Downtown Disney’s sweetest shops. If this is on your must-eat list, be sure to stop by early in your visit and put your name on the waiting list. Shopping at Downtown Disney is all socially distant, so they’ll text you when it’s your turn.
