    Favorite Things to Do at DLR Downtown Disney

    Just realized that there's no thread for DLR Downtown Disney yet.. I and my bf are a regular there since we come at least once week for me to trade my VM duplicates (I was not allowed to buy new ones until I finish trading all my dups.... but I have secretly been buying a few .. shhh)

    We love to go there because it's inexpensive. Parking is free for the first 3 hours, and you get 2 hours more after movie theater/sit-down restaurant validation. Usually we come in weekday night, when it's not madly crowded. We get to see the firework show from DLR next door too that's a bonus.

    As for restaurant, we don't really go eat there much. One time we tried Jazz Kitchen and it was really good although a bit expensive. We usually sit up on the bar in Rainforest Cafe, since there is usually huge line for the sit-down. Ordered one single appetizer and some drinks for both of us, and call it a night since my work shift starts at 6 AM...

    What do you usually do in DLR Downtown Disney?

    EDIT: Oops sorry no wonder no one posted about DLR Downtown Disney here... I posted in wrong section :x sorry please move the thread..

    Well when we where there, we would make sure we went to the Rainforest every time. We also would walk the stores to trade our vn. We would also go into the car store so our boys could play with the cars already made and running, just hated leaving b/c they always cried for one.

    You always have to visit Legoland and the World of Disney shop and if you happen to be in the mood for desert you can always make a trip to Ghiradellis

    When I go to DD, I usually like to go to D-Street. (Duh. ) I also like to browse the Lego shoop, and see if there are any new sets. My favorite place to eat is either ESPN Zone or Jazz Kitchen.

    Never been to DLR, but my wife and I are joining the Disney Vacation Club, so we'll probably be there next year!!!

    How does DLR Downtown Disney compare to WDW?

    Really? I was hoping it would be better since WDW Pleasure Island is practically a ghost town. I'm just excited for DLR's D-Street

    The Downtown Disney at DLR is much smaller than the WDW version. The WDW marketplace and west side have more stores and more restaurants, I think.

    you are correct! i was at the one in wdw a few weeks ago and there are a lot more restaurants, shops and things like that. the one in anaheim gets so busy especially on the weekend and the food isn't that good

    Just about everytime I get a chance to go to Downtown Disney, I eat dinner at Rainforest Cafe. It is such an awesome restaurant and I love nature; Especially animals I also love looking in the stores and getting a smoothie from Jamba Juice. But I mainly love walking through all the Disney stores there and buying some things... I seriously have to bring a ton of movie when I go and watch it go down. But it is so worth it!

    has rainforest changed their manu at all or is the same one from the beginning? i wanted to go back there to give it another chance but was hesitant because of the service not being great and the food being overpriced for what it was

    When we go to DTD we usually eat at T-Rex. Look through the pin shop, giant disney store, go through the bath bomb store, D-St and of course, Goofy's Candy Co!!!!

    Ghiradelli is a must. Love those Sundae's! But just being at Downtown is enough for me. I just feel happy there!

    DTD is one of our favorite places, we usually go 2-3 times when we visit WDW. We always hit D-Town, WoD, Lego. Then we eat at either ghirardellis, Earl of Sandwich or Wentz Pretzels. Sometime were there so long we eat at 2 of the places.

    when I go to DLR downtown, I try to always hit up D-street. whether I buy something or I just look at all the things in the store, I absolutely love that store. We (my family) dont usually eat downtown, but if we do it's usually naples for pizza (sometimes napolini if we are in a hurry) or if we are feeling fancy, we go to the jazz kitchen. We will actually be going to the jazz kitchen on christmas/my birthday for the second year in a row ( I can't wait to have some more turducken ) when I go with my girlfriend, we like to go through Dstreet and the lego store, and sometimes we'll catch a movie (last one we saw was lion king 3D, yeah that was awesome haha)

    Will you make some more wishes for DLR DTD? It appears that your wishes do come true.

    Maybe you should wish that they would expand WOD so that it wasn't so incredibly crowded in there at all times.
    Like a grand and miraculous spaceship, our planet has sailed through the universe of time.

    For me it's definitely D-Street then heading over to ESPN Zone. One of my best friends and I love heading to ESPN Zone to grab a bite in The Screening Room to watch Real Madrid games. We love seating in either the "Zone Thrones" or at the booths that have their own mounted TV.
