Fall in love this February in the Downtown Disney District at Disneyland Resort! You’ll find gifts and goodies that steal your heart, just the right match for your culinary craving, something special for all your loved ones, plus outdoor dining and dining reservations – all in time for Valentine’s Day.
Star Wars Trading Post and WonderGround Gallery
First, a sweet surprise: Star Wars Trading Post, which we previewed last month, will open in its new location on Feb. 19, and WonderGround Gallery also re-opens that day with its unique collection of housewares and fashion items!
Star Wars Trading Post becomes your go-to place for all things Star Wars. The design is inspired by a hidden jungle Resistance base and the merchandise offers something for every traveler on their galactic journey – with new collections and even a Paddy Frog light-up sipper!
Be sure to check out the new Child-inspired streetwear collection, with designs inspired by “The Mandalorian” series on Disney+. This all-new collection inspired by Grogu, aka the Child, features t-shirts, leggings, hats and more.
Looking for a fun way to spend your “credits”? Try the Batuuan Spira*, a themed Disney Gift Card available at Star Wars Trading Post and good for spending at select participating locations throughout the Disneyland Resort. The Batuuan Spira is a keepsake that’s both fun and useful.
For Legacy Passholders, there will also be a limited-time magical extra opportunity for Star Wars Trading Post. Visit Disneyland.com/LegacyPassholder for details.
Select outdoor dining is back!
You can enjoy outdoor dining once again in the Downtown Disney District at locations including Naples Ristorante e Bar, Uva Bar & Café, Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen, Tortilla Jo’s and Black Tap Craft Burgers & Shakes.
