After an extensive renovation, Wetzel’s Pretzels has returned to the Downtown Disney District at the Disneyland Resort. Wetzels, a pioneer of pillowy, fresh-baked pretzels, celebrated the grand re-opening of its flagship store with a DJ, giant pretzel games, and the famous pretzels people have come to know and love!
The new California-inspired store features an indoor-outdoor feel and a modern, upscale design. Two local artists were commissioned for the design of the new store, Trek Thunder Kelly and Dan Medina. Kelly is known for his large-scale murals such as the Sky Mural in Venice Beach. He painted a mural that stretches around the inside of the store featuring images of Pasadena, Wetzel’s hometown and 12 hidden pretzels. Medina is known for his bronze sculptures like the Antonio Aguilar monument in LA, and he designed custom door handles that form a pretzel when the doors are closed.
The new store has debuted an extensive menu with items like the Cheese Meltdown, Pepperoni Twist, Wetzel Dogs, Cin-a-Bitz, and fresh or frozen lemonade. The pretzels are made from scratch each day with simple ingredients like flour, water, yeast, and salt. This has been the Wetzel’s way since the first location opened 25 years ago.
The Downtown Disney District is undergoing many changes and transitioning into a bustling area for all guests to enjoy. This year, the promenade section has welcomed Splitsville Luxury Lanes, The VOID, and the reimagined World of Disney Store. Along with the new Wetzel’s Pretzels, Ballast Point brewery and Black Tap Craft Burgers & Shakes will be coming soon too.
