A friend and I wanted to have some drinks at Downtown Disney and we found this delightful place, Uva Bar, right smack in the middle of Downtown Disney. An outside bar, the Uva Bar is a perfect place to have some drinks and a light lunch while enjoying the beautiful weather of Anaheim, Ca. For those who are not familiar with SoCal, Anaheim is about 25 miles south of Los Angeles. Not too far in distance, but with major traffic, Anaheim can become a couple of hours away.
Downtown Disney is an outdoor promenade, filled with shops and restaurants, right next to Disneyland and Adventureland. Similar to the City Walk of Universal Studios, Downtown Disney is exciting and fun. There is no admission fee for this fun filled promenade and the Disney resorts are easily accessible.
Places to see in Downtown Disney include Cirque du Soleil’s La Nouba, Disney Quest, the House of Blues, Planet Hollywood, the Lego Imagination Center, World of Disney, AMC Downtown Disney 24 with Dine-In Theatres, and Rainforest Cafe.
My friend and I enjoyed our lunch of chicken gyros and garlic fries at Uva Bar, and then walked around the promenade. It was delightful to see all the Disney themed shops while we munch on chocolate covered strawberries.
