Which California concept park vacation resort has the better buying and eating district – is it Disneyland’s Downtown Disney, or Universal Studios Hollywood’s Common CityWalk?Let us set this up for a vote. But very first, let us examine the two with a “tale of the tape.”

Downtown Disney also has Splitsville Luxury Lanes (Bowling) though Universal CityWalk has Universal Cinema (AMC Theaters)iFly (indoor skydiving)But the significant change concerning the two may be their food stuff line-ups.
