Limited Time Magic Easter Egg Hunt at Disney California Adventure

Beginning this morning (Monday, March 18) through next Sunday, March 24, Disney California Adventure park hosts an Easter egg hunt. This is a special, Limited Time Magic opportunity to search for hidden "eggs." To participate in this Easter egg hunt, you must purchase a special park map and sticker set.

A map package contain 10 egg-shaped stickers, each representing a different character-themed egg located throughout the park. When you find one of these special hidden eggs, you apply the corresponding sticker to the egg's location on the map. After completing the egg hunt, you return the map to the redemption location at Elias & Co. to receive a special gift box containing two Vinylmation key rings (a $12.95 value). Each map set costs $4.95 (plus tax) and is available at Elias & Co., Oswald's, Radiator Springs Curios, Tower Hotel Gifts, and Treasures in Paradise. There is no discount for annual passports, however you can still turn in your map for the Vinylmation key ring set even if you do not find all 10 Easter egg locations.

Celebrate Greek culture with special food and entertainment

The Disneyland Resort celebrates Greek culture with "OPA! A celebration of Greece" in the last weekend of May, from May 25 to 27. While strangely not a Limited Time Magic promotion, the celebration includes events at both Disneyland and DCA parks. Each day of the event, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Disney hosts special events, including music, entertainment, food, and appearances by celebrity chef Argiro Barbarigou and winemaker Christina Boutari. The various event activities include the following at both parks:

Disneyland, in the "it's a small world" mall:

  • Olympics training with Hercules – learn techniques for events such as the discus, javelin and leaping from Hercules himself.
  • Atmosphere entertainment – "The Citizens of Greece" educate, philosophize, and guide guests through the festivities.
  • Live performances from Greek musicians and dancers
  • Special Greek food offerings – at the Carnation Cafe, Redd Rockett's Pizza Port and special food carts.

Disney California Adventure, in the Paradise Garden:

  • Greek wine tastings
  • Live performances from Greek musicians
  • Kalamatiano line dances
  • Atmosphere entertainment – "The Citizens of Greece" educate, philosophize, and guide guests through the festivities.
  • Special Greek food offerings – at Boardwalk Pizza & Pasta, Paradise Garden Grill and special food carts.

Mickey Mouse is also scheduled to appear dressed in traditional fustanella attire.

On the second day of the event, May 26, celebrity chef Argiro Barbarigou and winemaker Christina Boutari appear at DCA's Golden Vine Winery. To attend this event, you must make a reservation and purchase tickets in advance beginning next Monday, March 25. Disney has not yet released pricing or further details about this event.

"Disneyland: The Way We Were" photographic tour with Chief Archivist Emeritus Dave Smith

Disney Legend and Chief Archivist Emeritus, Walt Disney Archives, Dave Smith takes annual passholders on a photographic journey back in time to examine the history of Disneyland during a special event this Friday, March 22, at the Main Street U.S.A. Opera House at 5:00 p.m. and again at 7:00 p.m.

Smith joined the Walt Disney Company as the director, and original founder, of the Walt Disney Archives when the division was established on June 22, 1970. He continued to work at the Walt Disney Archives until his retirement in 2010.

Passholders who wish to attend this one-of-a-kind event must register in person in front of the Main Street U.S.A. Opera House, beginning at 11:30 a.m. on the morning of the event. Everyone in your party must be present, and be a valid annual passholder (ages 3 and older); non-passholder guests are not permitted, and you may be asked to show a photo ID. Once registered, you receive a wristband that grants you admission to one of the two presentations later in the evening. The Main Street, U.S.A. Opera House will open 15 minutes prior to each of the event start times, and late arrivals are not admitted.

Tomorrowland Starcade reopens with over two-dozen vintage arcade games

The Tomorrowland Starcade quietly reopened this past weekend featuring 26 vintage arcade games, two pinball machines, and a air hockey table. The games are located in the downstairs portion of the Starcade, which recently housed the Wreck it Ralph meet-and-greet as well as Fix-it Felix arcade games. The area still serves as part of the Startrader merchandise shop, however it now also contains the arcade games. The upstairs portion of the Starcade remains unused.

Guests can play 1980s titles such as Kung-Fu and Track and Field in the Tomorrowland Starcade. Photo by Bryan Pugh.


The arcade games are on the first level of the Starcade; the second level remains closed. Photo by Bryan Pugh.

The arcade games, which feature titles such as PacMan, Space Invaders, Missile Command, TRON, and Track & Field, were most recently part of the very popular Flynn's Arcade in ElecTRONica. However, Flynn's Arcade was themed specifically with '80s music and neon.

The addition of the arcade games in the Startrader feels a bit thrown together. Most of the games are concentrated to the rear of the building, but a few can be found in and around the various merchandise displays. Also, one must question how vintage, circa 1980s arcade games fit into a land themed to tomorrow. Still, following years of absence, it is nice to see arcade games back in use at the Tomorrowland Starcade. Hopefully the area will receive some attention if the games prove to be successful.

Get ready for MouseAdventure Musical

Tune up your instruments and get the band together because our next event, MouseAdventure Musical, is scheduled for Sunday, May 19, and will lead you on a music appreciation tour of the Disneyland Resort!

Prizes are awarded both to the best new and returning teams.

Advanced registration is $175 per team, which includes admission to our post-event award ceremony, but does not include theme park admission. Each player on your team needs admission into both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure parks on Sunday, May 19.

Day at the Park (non-competitive) – Disney California Adventure ($90 per team)

Are you a brand-new team wanting to get taste of MouseAdventure or a returning team wishing to play without the stress of competition?

This and that...

…Beginning Saturday, March 23, Disneyland is changing a policy dictating the minimum age for a minor to enter the park alone as 14 years old; starting this Saturday, March 23, those who are younger will have to be accompanied by another person who is at least 14 years old. Disneyland's previous policy was 8 years old (those who were younger were required to be accompanied by a person age 14 or older). This new policy is being standardized throughout all U.S. Disney theme parks, and will most likely to impact parents with children who are 12 or 13, since they may have entered the parks by themselves (for example, if the parents are in Disneyland and the older kids wanted to hop over to DCA).

…A few months ago, Walt Disney World held a Limited Time Magic event where "Long Lost Disney Friends"—rarely seen Disney characters—made appearances in the park. Through this Thursday, March 21, Disney is asking for your vote on which rarely seen Disney characters you would like to see make an appearance for the upcoming Disneyland "Long Lost Friends" week. Choices include Three Little Pigs, Scrooge McDuck and Ludwig VonDrake, Merlin, Clarabelle Cow, and many more.

… The Fantasyland Theater will soon host a new stage show, Mickey and the Magical Map. A few weeks ago, we gave you some insight on what to expect when the stage show debuts this summer, and now we have the opening date. Mickey and the Magical Map opens at Disneyland on May 25, 2013.

...The Downtown Disney Fossil store reopened this week following a complete remodel.

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
  • 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 Park and Disney California Adventure Park during regular operating hours, and a private party in Disneyland Park 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 (sold out) – August 30 through September 1 at the Disneyland Resort. Spaces may still be 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

Note: We are hearing that the Costco 4-Day Park Hopper is sold of various locations. Check your local Costco for availability.

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.
Disneyland Resort Annual Passports

  • Premier Annual Passport ($849) – valid at both Disneyland Resort and Florida's Walt Disney World Resort; includes parking.

  • Deluxe Annual Passport ($469)

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.
