Disney has announced some new plans for their revitalization of Downtown Disneyland. In addition to announcing four new dining concepts for Downtown Disneyland, Walt Disney Imagineering shared concept art for a new stage and lawn area that will host special events, activities, and musical acts.
The new space will sit on the west end of the Downtown Disneyland District. Here are more details about the area from the Disney Parks Blog:
In this brand-new area, you’ll also be able to see a soaring new sculptural tower designed by Nikkolas Smith. This new tower will pay tribute to the sublime work of pioneering architects of color in Southern California during the mid-20th century with unique geometric patterns in the sculpture, evoking the famed mid-century buildings they created. We look forward to this beautiful new outdoor space!
Walt Disney Imagineering shared concept art for the new stage and lawn area on Instagram. The space doesn’t look too big or overly intricate. The design has a similar feel, albeit much smaller, to the new CommuniCore Hall at EPCOT.

The stage and lawn additions in Downtown Disneyland are scheduled to open in 2023. The other announced dining concepts do not have a set opening date at this time.
