Three new Downtown Disney stores and the new Boba Fett’s Throne photo op have opened or will soon open at Disneyland Resort.

The Downtown Disney District at Disneyland Resort is the place to go if you want to buy some unique memorabilia or try some delicious food. Now, Downtown Disney will have even more to offer for the whole family thanks to some new stores and a photo op that either just opened or will open soon.

Open Now: Pele Soccer

If you’re a soccer fan (or even if you’re not), chances are you’re familiar with the name Pele. The Brazilian player is widely considered one of the best soccer players ever. Shopping at Pele Soccer won’t help you pick up any of the soccer legend’s skills, unfortunately, but you’ll certainly be in the running for best dressed on the soccer field.

Pele Soccer sells a wide variety of team and national jerseys, leisurewear, cleats, soccer balls, and more. You can even customize the jerseys with your own name and number or to create a personalized gift for a loved one.

Open Now: Post 21

Open Now: Boba Fett’s Throne Photo Op

Star Wars fans can now take advantage of a unique photo op at Downtown Disney: Boba Fett’s Throne! The throne is a replica of the one in the new Disney+ Original Series, The Book of Boba Fett. You and your family can perch on the throne and snap a memorable photo together that you can show off to all your Star Wars-loving friends.

Side note: The Book of Boba Fett will be released on Disney+ on Dec. 29, 2021, so set your calendar reminders so you don’t miss out!

Opening Soon: Lovepop

What’s better than giving someone a card and flowers? How about giving them a card that’s also a bunch of paper flowers?

Lovepop sells unique cards perfect for just about anyone in your life. They use laser technology to cut out beautiful designs that pop up when you open the card. While real flowers wilt and die, a Lovepop bouquet can last forever!

The Lovepop store will also sell a collection of Disney-themed cards, as well as gifts, for the Disney lovers in your life.
