8 New Things to Do at the Anaheim GardenWalk

Things are blooming at the Anaheim GardenWalk. The outdoor dining, shopping and entertainment center is just minutes from the Disneyland Resort and Anaheim Convention Center. Vacationers and locals alike have been taking advantage of the fun at House of Blues Anaheim, Mission Escape Games and Bowlmor Lanes. Check out what fun is sprouting at the Anaheim GardenWalk!

#1 Catch a movie or a magic show

Lights, camera, MAGIC! Catch a show with two new dazzling entertainment options: the AMC Anaheim GardenWalk 6 and Kip Barry’s Cabaret Magic Arts. Relax in reclining leather seats while watching your favorite new releases on the six screens at the AMC location. Pair popcorn with a selection of beer, wine and craft cocktails from the theater’s bar. Be mystified with a modern-day vaudeville experience at Kip Barry’s Cabaret Magic Arts, voted “#1 Variety and Magic Show” in Southern California.

#2 Wander through a haunted maze

Face your fears with the new Horror of the Orient Haunted Maze. Perfect for getting into the Halloween spirit, the haunted maze will open October 5 with fun activities and special guest appearances from Lolita Dark from Japan. The GardenWalk has plans for additional mazes throughout the year to ensure you never know what’s lurking around each corner. 

#3 Dress up like your favorite fantasy character

There’s truly something magical in store at Dara Beauty. Discover fantasy-themed beauty and hair supplies, plus costumes for both children and adults.  Make-overs are offered for children to channel their inner mermaid, princess, prince or Disney villain. Commemorate your visit with a photo in front of the carriage. 

#4 Satisfy your sweet tooth

Joining Sockerbit Sweet & Swedish and Snowopolis in the sweet department, two new coffee and tea locations will bring a smile. Sweeten your day at Momo Tea with blended fruit drinks, milk tea and boba. The cute decor and life-size bear statue make it a great choice for selfies and smoothies. AllMyTea Cafe brews high-quality ingredients with specialty hand-roasted Taiwanese coffee. Enjoy pastries and pour-over coffee on the patio. 

#5 Savor the flavors of the GardenWalk

Calling all foodies! Dig your fork into favorites like Grasslands Meat Market BBQ & Churrasco, Fire + Ice Interactive Grill + Bar, and McCormick & Schmick’s Grille. Now diners can enjoy even more great options like the newly opening Huckleberry’s and Casa de Poncho. A popular Northern California breakfast location, Huckleberry’s (opening December 2019) offers Southern flavors with a California twist like beignets, chicken and waffles, and shrimp po-boys. Home-style Mexican cuisine and drinks are on the menu at Casa de Pancho (opening September 2019).

# 6 Dance the night away

What’s on your playlist for the perfect night? Joining the House of Blues Anaheim’s numerous stages, is a premiere nightclub. Blush Nightclub will let you dance the night away with DJ’s and hot musical talent in their 10,000 square foot high-profile club.

#7 Take FOMO-inducing photos

See it, snap it, share it -- take advantage of the Instagram-friendly experiences at the GardenWalk. Take flight at the Museum of What WINGS Tour where you can pose before feathered, neon, and rainbow wings. If rainbow is your favorite color, check out Rhythm of Colors. The summer-time art installment joins the already Insta-friendly rainbow staircase.
