Where to get buttons at DLR other than City Hall?

I know there are buttons available at the City Hall. But I am afraid the line will be long. Does anyone know where else I can get these buttons? I want to get a Happy Birthday button for my son, Happy Anniversary for me and DH and Happy 1st Visit for my DD.

Thank you.

ticket booth; information booth (right past main street near the Jolly Holiday Bakery), and various stores that sell items (Emporium, Starcade, LGM).

We got them at one of the gift stores inside the Disneyland Hotel. We were not staying there, just walking thru and asked if they had them there and they gave them to us!

Call me crazy, but there's something special about getting them at City Hall. Getting them at a gift shop or anywhere else wouldn't be the same. Like I said, call me crazy.

I 100% agree with you! They are just more special....and really, I've never waited in a long line at City Hall.

BTW- I heard recently that local Disney Stores also have buttons behind the counters. But I haven't been yet to confirm.

Thank you all for the quick replies.
I have been to Disneyland a couple times, but I have never set my foot in the city hall. I guess I will have to check it out this time.

If you can ask at a ticket booth, I'd just do that. City Hall often has the disgruntled people in line. I try to avoid it.

One place I've gone to that NEVER has a line....guest relations by the entrance of California Adventure. If you're looking at the entrance of California Adventure, to the left is some bathrooms, and tucked in the corner (to the right of the bathrooms, but still to the left of the California Adventure entrance) is the Guest Relations windows.

On Saturday I got a birthday button for my friend from a CM working the parade. There was a long line at City Hall and I didn't want to wait. I asked the CM where I could go and he just pulled one out for me.

Nairnyn, is the guest relation inside or outside of DCA?

It's inside. Walk through the gates & hang a left. There's a little gift shop with a big car sitting out front, go to the left of this & it's tucked back in there. Very easy to find. But I will warn you- I had a small wait here, so it's not 100% line free as others are saying....

They are free . They have 1st visit buttons, I'm celebrating buttons, happily ever after buttons, just married buttons, and a few more I am probably forgetting, lol.

As a pp said, there are some inside. BUT I was referring to the ones outside. Like I said, stand in the esplanade looking at California Adventure. To the left of the entrance is the outside bathrooms. Tucked in a corner to the right of those bathrooms (so, between the bathrooms and the entrance) are the Guest Relations windows. You do not need to enter DCA to get to the window.
