Lunar New Year celebration kicks off at the Disneyland Resort

The Disneyland Resort kicked off the latest Limited Time Magic event this past weekend, Lunar New Year. The traditional Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese New Year celebration mostly takes place at Disney California Adventure park along the San Francisco-inspired street and Pacific Wharf. Guests can learn the art of Chinese brush painting, calligraphy, traditional crafts, and meet Disney characters.

The Limited Time Magic, Lunar New Year celebration is held from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. at Disney California Adventure park through February 13, 2013.

Disney California Adventure stays open late for Annual Passholders Thursdays in February.

DCA held the first night of Annual Passholder extended hours this past Thursday evening. The special event allows Annual Passholders to experience select attractions at DCA two hours after park closing. While Disney has not said exactly which attractions will be open for the event, the first night saw most major attractions open including, Radiator Springs Racers, Luigi's Flying Tires, Mater's Junkyard Jamboree, Tower of Terror, California Screamin', and Toy Story Midway Mania. Dining options included Flo's V8 Cafe, Cozy Cones, and Boardwalk Pizza and Pasta.

To participate, all guests must be valid Annual Passholders. You must present your passport on the day of entry. Check-in begins at noon on the day of the event only. Passholders are issued a wristband, which grants access to the open attractions during the two-hour event. It is strongly advised that Passholders who attend park at either the Mickey and Friends parking structure or the Toy Story lot, since the trams and shuttles to those parking areas run for one hour after the end of the event; all others will stop running at their normally scheduled time.

Disney California Adventure, Annual Passholder extended hours continues February 14, 21, and 28.

DCA quietly celebrates its 12th anniversary.

Over the past several years, Disney has let California Adventure's anniversary date quietly slip by, and this year was no different. DCA was originally dedicated by Michael Eisner on February 8, 2001. The first decade was a rocky one; the park was deemed a failure when it didn't live up to expectations. The result was a multi-year reconstruction, expansion, and rebirth of the park. But since the rededication of June 15, 2012, and the launch of both Cars Land and Buena Vista Street, DCA has become a popular destination for the Disneyland Resort.

Disney did acknowledge the park's anniversary on both the Disneyland and DCAToday Twitter accounts, with DCAToday giving away 12 cupcakes signifying the park's 12th anniversary. However, the lack of any official in-park announcement or even a small celebration for guests in attendance suggests that Disney may be looking to shift future anniversary celebrations to the relaunch date of June 15. The first anniversary of the relaunch and opening of Cars Land is only four months away, and we may get our answer then.

The Disneyland Resort will soon begin enforcing FASTPASS return times.

Since the launch of Disney's Fastpass service more than a decade ago, Disneyland has remained flexible on return times, allowing guests to enter the Fastpass queues hours past their scheduled one hour window. Last year, Walt Disney World began to enforce the Fastpass return times and since then, speculation has been that Disneyland would soon follow. This past week, Disney placed signs on top of Fastpass machines throughout the Disneyland Resort that asked guests to return during their assigned one-hour window. While currently not enforced, cast member sources have confirmed that, starting next Monday, February 18, Disneyland no longer plans to honor Fastpass returns outside of the one-hour assigned return time.


Themed signs have been placed on top of Disneyland Resort Fastpass machines asking guests to return within the one-hour window printed on their ticket. Photo by Bryan Pugh.

Although Disney maintains that this is not a change in policy, it will clearly be a change in practice. It is not yet clear how strictly the change will be enforced, but what is clear, if you are planing to use a Fastpass ticket at the Disneyland Resort after next Monday, you will need to plan your return to the attraction before your printed time expires on your Fastpass.

This and that...

… Annual Passholders can attend screenings of both Lady and the Tramp and Mulan at the Disneyland Main Street Opera House. Mulan will be shown to coincide with the Lunar New Year celebration on February 11 and 12. Lady and the Tramp will be shown as part of "True Love" week February 13 through 17. Passholders will need to obtain a wristband at the Opera House on the day of the screening they wish to attend.

… Celebrate Gospel is returning to Disney California Adventure park on Saturday, February 16, 2013. Choirs from around Southern California will perform between 10:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. in the Stage 17 building in Hollywood Land.

...Are you ready for an all-new MouseAdventure in 2013? Mark your calendars and save the date for our Spring 2013 event at the Disneyland Resort on Sunday, May 19. Additional event details, including registration dates, price, format, and divisions will be sent out soon, but the contracts are signed, the date is official, and you can now start to make plans to attend.

Resort Events

Check here to see if a large convention, competition or park event might fall during your next trip to the Disneyland Resort. If you know of any in-park events, official or unofficial, that should be listed here, please send us an e-mail (link).

2013
  • New Orleans Bayou Bash  a Limited Time Magic event. Entertainment and characters in New Orleans Square from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m February 8–12.
  • Lunar New Year  a Limited Time Magic event. February 8–11 from 10:00 a.m. through 5:00 p.m. at Disney California Adventure park.
  • True Love Week  a Limited Time Magic event. February 11–17 at Disneyland. Special menus at the Blue Bayou, Cafe Orleans, Carthay Circle Restaurnt, Stakehouse 55, and Napa Rose.
  • Grad Nite events – this party for high school seniors graduating in 2013 will be held on 22 dates in 2013: May 9, 10, 11, 15, 16, 17, 18, 22, 23, 24, 29, 30, 31; June 5, 6, 7, 12, 13, 14, 19, 20, 21. The 2013 event includes admission to Disneyland and Disney California Adventure during regular operating hours, and a private party in Disneyland after the park closes to the public for the night.
  • D23 Expo – August 9–11. Tickets for the three-day convention are now on sale.
  • Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend – August 30 through September 1 at the Disneyland Resort. Registration for the 10K and Half Marathon are both sold out, although spaces are still available through charity teams and select travel agencies.

We also recommend checking the convention calendar at the Anaheim/Orange County Visitor and Convention Bureau website. When looking at that site, remember to note both the number of people and the number of rooms resulting from each convention. A gathering of 25,000 people booking few room nights (indicating most will be driving in to the area for their meeting) can impact traffic around the resort much more than a crowd of 25,000 staying in area hotels. Of course, that second group is going to make finding a hotel room more difficult (and possibly more expensive), so it's best to book your own room as early as possible if you see that a big convention is in town during your trip.

Current Discounts & Promotions

Disneyland prices as of May 20, 2012.

Note: MousePlanet does not edit past Updates to reflect price increases; for up-to-date prices, check the most recent Disneyland Resort Update. Several current promotions offer discounted admission to the Disneyland Resort. For your convenience, we have grouped the discount offers based on the number of days the tickets are valid. Check out the category that best matches the amount of time you plan to spend at the resort, and pick the offer that works best for you. And keep those tips coming—let us know if you find a better or different offer, so we can share it with other readers!

This first section is a list of discounts on ticket-only purchases. Though it has become more common in recent years, Disneyland tickets are rarely offered at deep discounts unless you are a resident of Southern California or Northern Mexico. For residents outside that area, the best discounts available tend to be simple advance purchase discounts. If you know of any additional discounts, offers, promotions, or contests that should be listed in this section, drop us a line. Note, we are no longer listing offers from the Anaheim-Orange County Visitor & Convention Bureau, as their convenience fee negates any savings.

One Day, One Park Ticket – Regularly $87/$81 One Day Park Hopper – Regularly $125/$119 No discounts currently available to the general public. Check with your employer, school or credit union to see if any discounts are available through them.
Two Day, One Park per Day Ticket – Regularly $170/$158 Two Day Park Hopper – Regularly $200/$188 Get Away Today Vacations – MousePlanet sponsor Get Away Today Vacations sells two-day tickets at a slight discount over the Disneyland main gate price. 2-day Park Hoppers are $197 for adults ($185 for children); 2-day 1/park/day tickets are $168 for adults ($156 for children). Check with your employer, school or credit union to see if any discounts are available through them.
Three Day, One Park per Day Ticket – Regularly $220/$205 Three Day Park Hopper – Regularly $250/$235

Get Away Today Vacations – MousePlanet sponsor Get Away Today Vacations sells three-day tickets at a slight discount over the Disneyland main gate price. 3-day Park Hoppers are $245 for adults ($230 for children); 3-day 1/park/day tickets are $217 for adults ($202 for children).

2012-2013 Disney Military Promotional 3–Day Park Hopper Ticket ($125) – a discounted price offered to Eligible Service Members or their spouses.

Disney Military Promotional 3-Day Park Hopper Tickets may be purchased through September 26, 2013, and are valid through September 28, 2013. Disney defines "Eligible Service Members" as active or retired members of the U.S. military, including the National Guard, Reservists, and the U.S. Coast Guard. Valid military identification will be required for purchase. This discount is available at MWR/ITT offices at your military base or other at participating U.S. military sales outlets. The tickets are not available for sale at the Disneyland Resort ticket booths. The price is the same for adults and children, and total of six tickets may be purchased per military member, regardless of who purchases the tickets (the member or their spouse).

Tickets are blocked out through January 2; February 15–17; March 25 to April 5; and July 4. As far as we can tell, there is no "fuse" on this ticket, so you may have more than the standard 13 days from first use to use the remaining two admissions, but we highly recommend you contact your base MWR/ITT office for more details before making travel plans. Please note that this ticket is not a "bonus" ticket, and so does not include an early admission day.

Check with your employer, school or credit union to see if other discounts are available through them.

Four Day, One Park per Day Ticket – Regularly $245/$225 Four Day Park Hopper – Regularly $275/$255

Costco 4-Day Park Hopper Ticket plus $50 Costco Cash card ($259.99) – the Fall 2012 version of this discount offer is a bit different than past deals, with several important changes:

  • Unlike past offers, this ticket has a 13-day "fuse," which means you must use all four admission days within 13 days of first use, or lose them.
  • This ticket is not restricted to Southern California residents, however, the ticket is not currently available through Costco.com, and we're not sure if stores outside of Southern California will carry it. If you live in Northern California or out of state and spot them, be sure to let us know so we can pass this information along to other readers.
  • This ticket includes one Magic Morning day.
  • There are no blockout dates this time.
  • The ticket comes with a $50 Costco Cash Card instead of the Disney Gift Card offered last year.

At face value, the ticket is only $15 less than the rack rate for a Disneyland Resort 4-Day Parkhopper ticket purchased at the Main Entrance booths, and is more expensive than the child's ticket. The real "savings" comes in the form of the $50 Costco Cash Card. If you were already in the market for a 4-day Parkhopper and plan to spend $50 at Costco, this deal will save you $65.00, but it may not be a real value if you aren't an avid Costco shopper.

Get Away Today Vacations – MousePlanet sponsor Get Away Today Vacations sells four-day tickets at a slight discount over the Disneyland main gate price. 4-day Park Hoppers are $270 for adults ($250 for children); 4-day 1/park/day tickets are $240 for adults ($220 for children).

Check with your employer, school or credit union to see if any discounts are available through them.

Five Day, One Park per Day Ticket – Regularly $260/$240 Five Day Park Hopper – Regularly $290/$270

Get Away Today Vacations – MousePlanet sponsor Get Away Today Vacations sells five-day tickets at a slight discount over the Disneyland main gate price. 5-day Park Hoppers are $285 for adults ($265 for children); 5-day 1/park/day tickets are $255 for adults ($235 for children).

Check with your employer, school or credit union to see if any discounts are available through them.

Six Day, One Park per Day Ticket Six Day Park Hopper No longer offered by Disneyland – some travel providers may offer tickets for 6 days or longer as part of a package to international customers; residents of Canada, Australia, or the U.K. should check with local travel agencies to see what options may be available.

Visit our Annual Passholders Blockout Dates page to see more dates. You can see future calendar schedules at Disneyland. As always, specifics are subject to change without notice (or occasionally, without us noticing) so when information conflicts between what is presented here and that presented by Disney, it is best to assume Disney's information is correct. Visit the Park Hours section of our Disneyland Park guide for additional details about Magic Morning and Toontown Morning Madness, including available attractions.
