From Disney® Magic to High-End Luxury - A Look at Anaheim Shopping

Hotel search

Anaheim shopping is definitely diverse. The city itself is an ideal spot for picking up souvenirs, particularly if you want to bring a piece of Disneyland® Resort home. The rest of Orange County will treat you to some of Southern California’s most sophisticated shopping experiences. The OC is also home to clusters of unique districts and retail centers offering a more relaxed, bohemian ambiance.

Downtown Disney®

 

You don’t need park tickets in order to enjoy Disneyland® Resort’s outdoor promenade. The wide, sprawling pathway is dotted with family-friendly shops interspersed with restaurants and entertainment venues. Several stores, such as the massive World of Disney®, are stocked floor to ceiling with apparel, accessories, and souvenirs tied to Disney® and its associated franchises, like Marvel and Star Wars. If you prefer precious metals to precious memorabilia, check out the earrings, necklaces, and other pieces of handcrafted jewelry at Something Silver.
