A View of.....DownTown Disney

Cool Temperatures in the 70's, clear California night sky, beautiful wife beside me and a stroll down, DownTown Disney.

The Disneyland Resort is only 20 minutes from my home. Angel Stadium and The Might Ducks Pond Arena are all in the same vicinity.

Downtown Disney is a collection of shops and eateries set in a 'downtown walk' atmosphere. There's an ESPN Sports place as well as a House Of Blues Restaurant. The Jazz Kitchen Restaurant is a favorite spot which has fine dining upstairs and casual dining downstairs. There's also live entertainment in the New Orleans style.

These pictures don't do it justice (a bit dark since I didn't bring my digital camera) but it's a rather nice evening out. You can stroll the walk and maybe even catch a movie at the AMC Theater complex. There are a number of sidewalk entertainers and obviously plenty of Disney merchandise.

Parking is free for the first 3 hours (6 dollars for each hour after...Ouch). Still without going into the Disneyland park or California Disney resort itself (although you can if you want at $50.00 each) you can still have a great time. I didn't take any picture of it but if you plan to stay you must consider Disney's Californian Hotel . The hotel is connected to Downtown Disney and you have early access to the parks .

The evening was perfect. We even survived the " Build your own Bear" store. That place is a mad house... but we had a great time.

God is Good...all the time
