Adventures by runDisney

If you missed out on registration for the events in this November's inaugural Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend, Adventures by Disney and runDisney have joined forces to create an exclusive version of the Adventures by Disney "Southern California: Disney Backstage" guided tour specifically designed for runners.


advertisement

The standard six-day Disney Backstage tour includes tours of the the Jim Henson Company, Walt Disney Imagineering, Walt Disney Studio, and the Walt Disney Archives, followed by a two-day VIP tour experience at the Disneyland Resort.

The special runDisney version of the trip adds a seventh day to the normal itinerary, and includes registration for both the Avengers 5K and Half Marathon, plus tickets to the Pasta in the Park Party. During the tour, runDisney also hosts two guided group runs and a group dinner in Huntington Beach.

This is the first time we've seen a collaboration between runDisney and Adventures by Disney, but, if the persistent rumors of a runDisney race in Paris are true, it may be just the beginning of Disney travel packages aimed at runners and their families.

Pricing is not yet available on the Adventures by Disney website for the 37 packages being offered, but the regular version of the tour runs $2700 to $3800 per person, based on double occupancy, so we assume this special runDisney version will cost more. For more information about this special tour, contact your travel agent, or call Adventures by Disney at (800) 543-0865.

Select passholders invited to a Here Comes Summer event

If your Disneyland Resort annual passport expires between June 18 and September 6, 2014, it's your turn to attend a special passholder event at Disney California Adventure. This is the second in a series of special quarterly events targeted at passholders with soon-to-expire passes, and is part of a program to improve passholder renewal and retention rates in a year where there's very little new happening at the Disneyland Resort.

The after-hours event takes place on Monday, May 12, and includes "a variety of special offerings, surprises and experiences," including a weekday edition of the Mad T Party, meet-and-greets with Disney characters in summer costumes, and special food offerings at selected location.

If your pass expires during the target window, visit the Annual Passholder website starting at 10 a.m. today, April 29 to register for the event. Eligible passholders can invite up to five annual passholder guests, regardless of when their passes expire. Be prepared to provide the names, pass numbers and birth dates of your guests during the registration process.

Readers with March through June renewal dates were invited to the first version of this event on St. Patrick's Day, and many encountered long lines when they arrived at the Resort; some waited two hours just to check in and enter the park. An event manager told MousePlanet that they were aware of the problems during the first event, and have made changes to ensure a better process for the Here Comes Summer event. Still, this might be the day to leave work a bit early to try to get to the Resort as early as you can to avoid any possible repeat.

MouseAdventure teams "all in" for another hand of Card Games

Over 800 players went "all in" this weekend for the second edition of MouseAdventure: Card Games. In this "Deuces Wild" format, more than 200 teams solved a deck of 52 quests all around the Disneyland Resort, including both theme parks, Downtown Disney, and even the resort hotels. Along the way, teams played charades on Tom Sawyer Island; pieced together jigsaw puzzles in Cars Land; and learned that the Grand Californian Hotel hosts a Disney theme night at its Pinocchio's Workshop child activity center.

On a personal note, I want to thank all of the teams who participated in our charity drive by donating new LEGO sets to CHOC Children's Hospital. The sets are going to the newly established Julian's LEGO Corner at the hospital to provide "creative outlet to other children and teens coping with serious and complex medical journeys."

Our teams have been unfailingly generous with their donations at every MouseAdventure charity drive, and I knew that this particular project would resonate with our puzzle-loving players. Some teams even turned in their answer sheets a bit early so that they could stop at the LEGO store on their way to the post-game ceremony to buy more sets for the hospital. Thank you all for your generous support.

Question of the Week

Reader portshew wants your advice about affordable transportation from Long Beach or Orange County airports to the Disneyland Resort.

We are planning a trip and are wondering about transportation from the airport(either Long Beach or Orange County) to the resort. There will be 5 of us (all adults). We have done Super Shuttle in the past but not sure if there is anything cheaper/better/....

For five people, would you recommend Super Shuttle, a taxi, or some other mode of transportation? Come share your experiences on our MousePad forum.

Do you have questions about an upcoming Disneyland visit, or need help choosing a hotel, restaurant or activity? Post your questions on our Disneyland Resort Trip Planning forum to get advice from our readers and Community Leaders. Your question may even be featured here in an upcoming Update.

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).

  • Grad Nite events – This party for high school seniors graduating in 2014 will be held on these dates: May 16, 17, 21, 22, 24, 28, 30, 31; June 4, 6, 7, 10, 11, 13, 14, 18, 19. The 2014 event includes admission to Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park during regular operating hours, and a private party in Disney California Adventure park from 10:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m.
  • Bats Day in the Fun Park – May 16–18. (Unofficial event) More information on the event website.
  • President Obama commencement address at Anaheim Stadium – June 14. While not a Disney event. visitors planning to visit Disneyland that day should leave extra travel time to get through Orange County due to expected heavy traffic as a result of this presidential appearance.
  • Rock Your Disney Side 24-Hour Party – 6:00 a.m. Friday, May 23, 2014 to 6:00 a.m. Saturday, May 24, 2014. Disneyland and Disney California Adventure will both open for 24 hours.
  • Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend – August 29–31 (Labor Day weekend). All events are full.
  • Dapper Day Fall Soiree – Friday, September 12. More information at the event website.
  • Gay Days at Disneyland – October 3–5. (Unofficial event) More information on the event website.
  • Utah Education Association convention (UEA, a.k.a. "Utah Escapes to Anaheim") – October 16–17. Expect unusually large attendance levels October 17–21 as Utah students and families take advantage of a 4-day weekend created by their school's participation in a state education convention. Not all Utah schools or teachers close for or attend UEA, but the impact on the Resort is usually noticeable enough to mention.
  • 2014 CHOC Walk in the Park – Sunday, October 12 at the Disneyland Resort. Event details and registration information will be available at a later date.
  • Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend – November 14–16, 2014. Registration for all events are full. More information at the runDisney website.

2015

  • Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend – Mother's Day (May 10) weekend. No additional details available.

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 June 2, 2013.

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.

Don't get scammed! Never buy tickets from an unofficial or secondary outlet, such as through eBay or Craigslist. Never rent or purchase tickets from people approaching you outside the gates stating they have remaining days or leftover tickets. This practice is against the terms of use for Disneyland admission, and may result in denial of entry. It is also common for criminals to shoplift inactivated Disney theme park tickets from supermarkets to resell them. There is no way to determine if these tickets are valid until you try to use them to enter the parks. Only purchase Disney theme park tickets directly from Disney, an authorized seller, or travel agency.

One Day, One Park Ticket – Regularly $92/$86

One Day Park Hopper – Regularly $137/$131

The ticket is $129 for ages 3 and up, a $30 jump from the 2012 offer.

2013–2014 Disney Military Promotional 3–Day Park Hopper Ticket ($129) – a discounted price offered to Eligible Service Members or their spouses.

The 2013–2014 U.S. Armed Forces discount is valid through September 25, 2014. Under this program, active and retired U.S. military personnel can purchase Disney Military Promotional 3-Day Park Hopper Tickets for $129 each.

For the purpose of this offer, 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). Disney has also clarified that the "Military member (or spouse) must accompany the persons using these tickets for Theme Park admission," which means you can not purchase these tickets and give them to someone who will be visiting without you present.

Tickets are blocked out April 13, 2014 through April 20, 2014; and July 4, 2014. 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.

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.
