Just like that, six months have come and gone in 2019. July may have just started, but things are heating up quickly here at the Disneyland Resort. A hot day like this is the perfect time to wind through the cool shops in Downtown Disney District and check out what’s new. Here’s a look at what we found.

The former vendor cart between the two tram stops is blocked off by construction walls and covered in scrim. It’s quite an eyesore, at the moment. So we decide to set our sights on something better by strolling through World of Disney.

For the first time ever, the Disney Parks Starbucks travel mugs are available outside of the Parks! Guests can now purchase the Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Starbucks travel mugs in World of Disney.

After not selling many iPhone X/XS cases for several months, we’re noticing more options finally popping up around the resort. This D-Tech transparent case featuring Mickey and Minnie in front of a Castle backdrop is adorable. And it’s available for $29.99.

Just when you think you’ve seen the last Disney Parks Snacks-inspired merchandise, a new D-Lish item is released. But we’re not mad about this “Salty” Mickey Pretzel baseball hat. For $27.99, you can show the world just how salty you are.

Disney really is on a roll with their merchandise. We spotted two new “punny” t-shirts, each on sale for $34.99.

One of our favorite things to do while strolling through the Resort is to admire the changing flowers and topiaries. And right now, there’s a new series of abstract topiaries on display. Mickey Mouse is the first one we spot on our stroll.

If you’re casually walking by, you might not even notice you’re looking at Mickey. Each part of his body is detached from each other and placed in a different part of the planter. But once you stand in the correct spot, all the pieces appear to come together.

Mickey poses with a pretzel and, nearby, Minnie poses with a macaron.

Goofy might be the oddest of them all and our least favorite of the topiaries. Poor Goofy has been getting the short end of the stick with redesigns lately.

The west end of Downtown Disney is feeling in need of a revamp, despite the opening of two new shops: Sugarboo & Co. and Rinse Bath & Body Co.

The former AMC movie theater is still closed and feels like a huge wasted space.

And the former Rainforest Cafe feels the same way. Replacements for these locations haven’t been announced, and we don’t expect the movie theater to return now that AMC has relocated to Garden Walk down the street.

Pop-Up Disney! A Mickey Celebration is still going on at the space that was formerly occupied by ESPN Zone.

If you plan to walk from Downtown Disney back to your car at Pixar Pals or Mickey and Friends Parking Structure, please note that the temporary reroute is now permanent. Guests will continue to use the sidewalk on the south side of Magic Way.

The sidewalk on the north side of the street has been planted over. This former walkway was still in use up until May 2019.

With cars entering and exiting Pixar Pals on Magic Way, crossing on that side of the street doesn’t seem safe anymore. But come September, guests can use the Pixar Pals pedestrian bridge to walk to Downtown Disney, making the walk much simpler.
