I’ve only been on Saturdays and the parking lot is usually open by 9:30. It might be 9:45 during the week.Can anyone tell me what time they’ve been let into the parking lot lately for DTD? I’d like to arrive as early as possible in the morning, but not too early that the lot is not open yet.
I bought one of each (not all for me though).Photos of the new Disney face mask designs:
New Disney Attraction and Character Face Masks Arrive! | Inside the Magic
Alert, new Disney face masks! Downtown Disney have received new Disney face masks that feature several theme park attractions and Disney characters.
I noticed that about the Starbucks by the LEGO store. I was going to stop there on my way out but they looked closed. Guess I’ll check the app next timeFrom today's (8/03/20) MP DLR Update:
Downtown Disney extends operating hours; updates mask policy again
The Downtown Disney district at Disneyland announced extended shopping hours last week, and has once more updated its health and safety guidelines for visitors.
Last Friday, the Disneyland Resort announced that Downtown Disney would open at 10:00 a.m. daily, and remain open until 9:00 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. This change comes a week after the Downtown Disney district welcomed back two dining establishments: Tortilla Jo's and Ballast Point Brewing Co.

It's worth noting that each independent operator sets its own hours, and not all locations open and/or close with Downtown Disney. For example, Sugarboo & Co. has been opening at noon on weekdays, and the Downtown Disney West location of Starbucks isn't open everyday. Disney recommends downloading the official Disneyland smartphone app to get current store hours and dining information.
Disneyland also issued a second update to the requirement that all patrons age 2 and older wear a face covering. In addition to the first update, which banned neck gaiters and bandanna-style masks, Disney is now disallowing use of masks that have "valves, mesh material, or holes of any kind." It may seem incredible that Disney has to specifically ban mesh masks, but we watched last week as a guest was asked to change masks after attempting to enter Downtown Disney wearing an loose crochet mask with nothing under it. For now, Disney's guest relations team can provide visitors with an appropriate mask if they arrive wearing one of the disallowed styles.
Visitors will also notice temporary digital message boards on Disneyland Drive and Katella Avenue, which are used to alert drivers when Disney has temporarily paused entry to Downtown Disney due to capacity limits. Disney is adding a new entrance to the Downtown Disney parking lot from Katella Avenue, and has filed permits to install two new toll booths. Workers were installing the monument sign at the entrance last week.
