Ringing in the Season

The holiday season at the Disneyland Resort officially kicks off this Thursday, November 10, and runs through January 8, 2017. It's a long holiday season this year, with much of the focus on Disney California Adventure, and certainly not on the Disneyland construction zone. Still, with a new World of Color show, a new Princess Elena production, and an enormous holiday food festival all happening at DCA, that park may very well be the place to be this year.

As for Disneyland, "it's a small world" holiday and the Jingle Cruise both open this Thursday for the start of the season, and Sleeping Beauty Castle is already covered with a coat of soft white snow.

Entertainment notes

If you want to see the new and returning holiday entertainment during opening weekend, here is the schedule of the major shows. There are also quite a number of new park atmosphere groups scheduled in Disney California Adventure over the weekend, especially in the Pacific Wharf area and in the Paradise Pier area. If you're a fan of quirky little encounters, it might be worth seeking out these new experiences.

Downtown Disney holiday events on sale now

Reservations are now open for two popular annual holiday events in Downtown Disney These events tend to sell out quickly each year, so it's a good idea to book as soon as you can decide on a date.

Breakfast with Santa at Catal

This event is offered 10 times for the 2016 season: two seatings each on December 10, 11, 17, and 18, and one seating each on December 19 and 23. The event includes breakfast at Catal Restaurant in Downtown Disney, live entertainment, and a photo opportunity with Santa Claus.

Tickets are $60 per adult, and $27 per child ages 3 to 10. Children 2 and under are free, but must be counted in the party size. Registration is now open—book online via the Patina Group website. Note: All sales are final.

Gingerbread Workshop at Jazz Kitchen

This event is hosted three times in 2016: December 10, 17 and 28 at noon. The two-hour event lets you pair up with a family member to create and decorate your own gingerbread house, which you get to take home. The price is $48 for two people, which includes one gingerbread kit, with additional seats available for $18 each.

Tickets went on sale Monday November 7, and will fill quickly. Book via the event website.

Tip: you can bring your own candy, icing and other decorations if you want to go above and beyond that which is provided by the chefs. The first year we attended, we assumed everyone would be working with the same ingredients, and were in awe of the elaborate creations produced by returning gingerbread builders. Kids will definitely have a great time building their houses with the supplied materials (and eating half of the candies before they make it onto the roof), but feel free to bring more supplies and really get creative if you wish. Disney-themed houses, especially of the Frozen variety, were popular last year.

Disney to bring Downtown Disney into the security zone

The Orange County Register reported on Sunday that Disney plans to remove the security checkpoint currently located between Downtown Disney and the entrance to the theme parks, and replace it with three new checkpoints that will screen visitors much closer to their cars or Disneyland Resort hotel rooms. The changes are expected by the end of 2016.

One of these new checkpoints is currently under construction near the Mickey and Friends parking structure, where visitors will be screened prior to boarding the trams that will carry them to Downtown Disney.


Work is underway to change the flow of trams through the Mickey and Friends parking structure, and allow for construction of a new security checkpoint at the parking structure. Photo by Adrienne Vincent-Phoenix.

A second checkpoint will be constructed between the ESPN Zone restaurant and the Rainforest Cafe, and will primarily screen visitors who park in the Downtown Disney parking lot. Work has not yet begun on that checkpoint, but survey crews have been spotted in the area over the past month, as have people using counters to track the number of pedestrians entering the area throughout the day.

A third checkpoint will be built between the Earl of Sandwich restaurant and the ESPN Zone, and will screen visitors entering the Downtown Disney area from the Disneyland Hotel and Paradise Pier Hotel, as well as those who park in the Simba parking lot.

Once the new checkpoints are active, the entirety of Downtown Disney will be enclosed within Disney's security perimeter, which means visitors will no longer need to pass through bag check when moving between Downtown Disney and the theme parks. This may help alleviate a major pain point for visitors, and encourage more shopping and dining in Downtown Disney once customers can again easily walk back and forth without a lengthy wait to get back to the theme parks.

The Orange County Register article did not address how Disney would handle security for visitors entering Downtown Disney from the Grand Californian Hotel, though it is likely a smaller checkpoint will be constructed in the breezeway between the two. A similar checkpoint already exists at the entrance between the Grand California Hotel into Disney California Adventure park.

Disney reportedly has no plans to change operation of the security checkpoint on the east entrance to the main entrance esplanade, though it is a safe guess that this expanded security zone is a model for how Disney will operate the elevated pedestrian walkway that will lead from the new seven-story parking structure that is under construction as part of the Eastern Gateway project. Concept art for that project shows security checkpoints located between the parking area and the pedestrian bridge.

This change raises some operational questions, and may mean some changes for Downtown Disney merchants. Several Downtown Disney stores sell items that are prohibited inside the Disney theme parks, such as remote-control cars from RideMakerz, glass perfume bottles from Sephora, even wheeled Mickey Mouse luggage from the World of Disney store. Under the current practice, these items are identified at bag check, and customers are given the option to take the item to their car or hotel room, or to place them in an locker in the picnic area for later retrieval.

If there is no longer a bag check before the main entrance, the onus goes back onto the ticket taker to spot the RideMakerz box or ask what's in the Sephora bag. Perhaps the new arrangement will cause Disney to reconsider some policies that are confusing to visitors—for example it makes no sense that you can't bring in a bottle of perfume from Sephora but you can buy one in New Orleans Square, or that you can't bring in a RideMakerz car but you can buy something similar in Tomorrowland. We do not know if Downtown Disney merchants will need to label items that can not be carried into the theme parks or otherwise alert customers at the time of purchase, or if Disney will offer some form of package delivery service to the Disney-owned hotels.

We also wonder if this change means an end to the public speech zones in Downtown Disney, which are populated almost daily by representatives of one church, and less frequently by whichever union is airing a grievance with Disney or one of its operating partners. These public speech zones are Disney's concession to California's Pruneyard decision, and are operated based on a tightly controlled application and conduct policy. However, by placing Downtown Disney inside a security bubble, Disney may also be putting the area off-limits to solicitors.

MousePlanet reached out to Disney for comment on these operational questions on Monday, but they could not respond in time for publication. We hope to share their response and clarify additional questions that arise as this new practice goes into effect later this year.

Overseeing the new security procedures will be Disneyland's newly hired vice president of security and emergency services. Dan Hughes didn't need much in the way of a relocation package—he grew up one city away, and is set to retire as the Chief of Police for Fullerton, California this coming Friday, November 11. He starts at Disney on Monday.

The Critters are back

Critter Country reopened following a month-long refurbishment, and there's really not much to mention save two areas. The train bridge over the area is covered with a printed construction scrim, which blends fairly well into the surrounding foliage. Not as well camouflaged is the new access ramp leading to the lower level of the Hungry Bear Restaurant complex and the bathrooms, the original stairs and ramps currently behind construction walls. The new access is immediately next to the entrance to The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.

Runners assemble for the 2016 Super Heroes Half Marathon weekend

The third Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend begins this Thursday, November 10, and continues through Sunday, November 13. The event is expected to draw tens of thousands of runners, walkers, friends, and family to the Disneyland Resort, and includes road closures and operational changes that could impact anyone visiting during this weekend. Here's what runners, tourists and spectators should know as we head into this busy weekend.

Key points for non-runners

The Disneyland Resort is going to be very busy this weekend. The race falls during the start of the 2016 holiday celebration at the Disneyland Resort, as well as over the long Veteran's Day Weekend, so expect larger than normal crowds by race weekend standards. While runners tend not to stay up late the night before races, folks visiting to see the new nighttime holiday entertainment will keep the parks hopping well after dark.

Staying at the Disneyland Hotel? The race expo takes place in that hotel's convention center, so expect extra crowds at the shops and restaurants. If you are staying at any of the three Disneyland Resort hotels, expect race-related noise Friday, Saturday, and Sunday mornings, beginning in the predawn hours, especially if your hotel room faces Disneyland Drive. If you are staying at the Grand Californian Hotel in a room overlooking Downtown Disney, expect to hear spectator cheering starting around 5:45 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

While all of the races take place before park opening or outside the parks, you may still experience traffic delays and extra crowds. Give yourself plenty of time if driving to the resort in the morning; race-related road closures are scheduled from 12:01 to 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, and from 12:01 to to 10:00 a.m. on Sunday. For detailed road closure information, see page 13 of the event guidebook.

Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure open at 9:00 a.m. on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Early entry for hotel guests and eligible ticket holders is at 8:00 a.m. at Disney California Adventure on Friday, at Disneyland on Saturday, and back at DCA on Sunday.

Key points for spectators

Disney does not allow you to view the half-marathon race course from inside Disneyland park unless you purchase a $79 ChEAR Squad package. Online registration is still open, and you may also be able to purchase packages at the Expo. There is no half marathon viewing inside Disney California Adventure, and no theme park viewing for the 5K or 10K events.

If you want to come cheer on the runners without purchasing a spectator package, or plan to cheer at the Friday's 3.1-mile 5K or Saturday's 6.2-mile 10K events, Disney recommends specific viewing areas on property. All of these viewing areas are accessible only by foot; so walk from either the Mickey and Friends parking structure, or from your hotel if staying nearby.

Disney is also providing complimentary transportation between the Pinocchio parking lot and Angel Stadium for spectators who want to cheer on their runners at the stadium. Buses run approximately every 25 minutes between 5:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m.

Event Time Recommended viewing areas
5K 5:30 to 5:55 Start line at Disneyland Drive to Katella Avenue
5:40 to 6:35 Mile 2.5 at Esplanade between Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure
5:42 to 6:45 Mile 2.7 at Downtown Disney
5:45 to 6:45 Final ¾ mile on road from Paradise Pier Hotel to Disneyland Hotel and behind ESPN Zone
10K 5:30 to 6:10 Start line at Disneyland Drive to Katella Avenue

6:20 to 10:05 Final ¾ mile at road from Paradise Pier Hotel to Disneyland Hotel and behind ESPN Zone

View the race courses on pages 17-20 of the Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend guidebook.

Runner tracking

You can register to receive runner tracking updates via text message, Twitter, or Facebook. Sign up via the runDisney webform, or text "SHHM " to 38909.

Just for runners

The event guide is only available in digital format again for this event, so be sure to take a look before you head to Anaheim. Corral, bib assignment and waivers are all available on the runDisney website now, and you should double-check that your information is correct.

Expo info

If you want first pick of the race merchandise, plan to arrive well before the official 10:00 a.m. opening on Thursday. Based on past events, you would be well-advised to bring water, sunscreen, and a hat to protect you during the wait. Remember, you do not need to collect your race packet before you enter the expo to shop, so if you want the best selection Thursday morning, your best bet is to shop first, then get your race packet.

Because the Expo remains open until 8:00 p.m. on Friday, Friday afternoon may be the best time to attend the expo if all you want to do is get your race packet and get out. If you're running the half marathon, you can visit the Expo between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on Saturday to get your race gear.

Parking and ART shuttles.

Disney charges runners to park in the Mickey and Friends parking structure on race morning. If you are an annual passholder with parking benefits, be sure to bring along your AP. If you are staying at an Anaheim-area hotel on the ART (Anaheim Resort Transportation Network) line, free shuttles run every 20 minutes during the events; consult the race guide for full details.

We need to Assemble a few Super Heroes this weekend!

If you think finishing a half marathon is hard, try cheering through one! We're looking for a few brave souls to wake up at Disney-dark-hundred on Sunday, November 13, set up a tent on a random Anaheim street, and hand out hundreds of pounds of candy to an endless parade of sweaty strangers.

It's a tough job, but someone has to do it - what about you?

Maybe you've run past the Team MousePlanet cheer station at a race, and thought, "I should do that one of these races..." If you're sitting the Super Heroes event out, here's your chance! Come watch an event from the other side of the sidewalk – it will give you a whole new appreciation for the people who sprint, run, jog, walk, crawl and limp the same road in pursuit of the same finish line.

Or, maybe you've never run an event in your life. That's OK - consider it the ultimate in people watching. And just think of the costumes you'll see... Plus, after you've stood on a street corner and cheered yourself hoarse for 3 straight hours, you might find yourself thinking that running 13.1 miles might not be all that bad after all!

If you're interested in joining our band of heroes, please visit our MousePad discussion forum for details. Capes are entirely optional.

This and that...

...Disneyland Resort shops frequently offer a reduced–price souvenir (often a tote bag, watch, or blanket) with a qualifying minimum purchase. These are offered at Disney-operated stores only, and selection may vary by location.

Disney now allows customers to purchase more than one of the offers in a qualifying transaction, so if you spend $40 or more you can buy both items currently available if you wish. If you're a passholder, the minimum purchase is calculated after your discount, and your discount does not apply to the promotional item. Current offers:

  • Disneyland Snowman Mickey Tote for $19.95 with a purchase of $25 or more.
  • Disneyland Throw Blanket for $19.95 with a purchase of $40 or more.


Customers can add a Snowman Mickey tote or Disneyland castle throw blanket to their qualifying purchase for $20. Photo by Adrienne Vincent-Phoenix.

...Disney added detail to an already-filed building permit for the Guardians Of Galaxy Mission: Break Out project. According to the new details, the "exterior architectural decorative ornamentation" will include such items as 13 satellite dishes, and 1,830 soft corrugated steel material to be installed in place of the existing tile roof. 14 parapets will be extended, 49 panels placed on existing decks, and 92 existing fake windows covered. This permit was noteworthy only because the amount of detail included retroactive to the original filing, something that is rarely so explicitly laid out like this.

...A permit has also been filed for work to expand the footprint of the former House of Blues location in Downtown Disney. The new structure is described as a "future restaurant / amusement 4-story building." Disney has not yet made any official announcement about plans for the space.

...Team MousePlanet has raised $7421 during this years CHOC Walk, with one week left in the 2016 campaign. There is still time to make a donation and help push the team or an individual walker over their next goal. Please visit the CHOC Walk website to help.

…The MousePlanet Newsletter is here! The newsletter contains a recap of the week's articles (in case you miss a day), news that may have developed since the weekly Updates were published, and tips about what's happening at the Disney theme parks for the coming weekend. We'll also include a fun bonus, such as an Eye Spy or a trivia question. To subscribe to our free newsletter, just enter your e-mail in the box below.

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).

2016

  • 2017 Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend – January 12–15, 2017. Registration is still open for the 10K and Half Marathon events. All other race distances are sold out through runDisney, but charities like Team Muscle Makers have space available.
  • "Use it or lose it" weekend – January 28–29, 2017. Our designation for the final weekend of January, which marks the deadline for cast members, community groups, and Club 33 members to use their remaining complementary admission tickets from the 2016 allocation.
  • Dapper Day Spring Outing to Disneyland (unofficial event) – Sunday, April 23. More information at the event website. This popular event grows larger each year, so it's worth making note of the date if you plan to visit the park during this weekend.
  • 2017 Grad Nites: May 5, 6, 10, 17, 19, 20, 24, 30 and 31; June 2, 3, 6, 7, 9, 10, 14, 16 and 17.
  • 2017 Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend – May 11–14, 2017. Registration opens September 20, 2016.
  • D23 Expo – July 14–16, 2017. Tickets are now on sale through the official D23 website.
  • Dapper Day Fall Outing to Disneyland (unofficial event) – Sunday, November 5. More information at the event website. This popular event grows larger each year, so it's worth making note of the date if you plan to visit the park during this weekend.

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.

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.

Disneyland Resort Annual Passports

Disney California Adventure Park Fun Pass

Technically not an annual pass, this Costco-exclusive is valid only at Disney California Adventure for 365 days after activation. The pass costs $329.99, the same price as the existing Disney Southern California Select Passport that also includes admission to Disneyland.

The new Costco pass comes with 19 blockout dates during the remainder of 2016, and 41 blockout dates through December 1, 2017. Those 60 combined blockout dates most closely resemble those of the existing Deluxe Annual Passport, and cover the peak Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year travel periods, plus most holiday weekends and every Saturday between March 13 and August 19.

2016 – 2017 blockout dates:

  • 2016 – November 11, 24, 25, 26; December 19–31
  • 2017 – January 1, 2; February 18, 19; March 18, 25; April 1, 8, 9, 14, 15, 22, 29; May 6, 13, 20, 26, 27, 28; June 3, 10, 17, 24; July 1–4, 8, 15, 22, 29; August 5, 12, 19; September 2, l3; November 10, 11, 23, 24, 25.

The Disney California Adventure Park Fun Pass also includes the same 10 percent merchandise and food discount as offered with the Southern California Select Passport. Like that pass, the new DCA pass does not include parking, nor is there an option to add a parking pass onto this ticket. The new Fun Pass also includes a Disney collector pin featuring Ariel and the DCA logo.

If you're looking to buy this as a holiday gift, note that the pass expires one year after the first use, and the first use must be by December 1, 2016. That doesn't necessarily rule it out as a stocking stuffer, but Christmas will have to come very early so your recipient can activate the pass before the deadline.

The pass is available only at Costco stores and from Costco.com. This is not a member-exclusive item, and in our test, the Costco website did not add a surcharge when the pass was purchased by a non-member. The pass is mailed in five to seven business days, though a two-day shipping option is available at an added charge.


California residents can take advantage of the monthly payment plan when purchasing any but the Premier Annual Passport.

  • Premier Annual Passport ($1,439) – valid at both Disneyland Resort and Florida's Walt Disney World Resort; includes parking and digital PhotoPass downloads. No blockout dates.
  • Disney Signature Plus Pass ($1,049) – includes discounts, parking, and digital PhotoPass downloads. No blockout dates.
  • Disney Signature Pass ($849) – includes discounts, parking, and digital PhotoPass downloads. Some blockout dates, including December holidays and other peak days.
  • Disney Deluxe Pass ($599) – includes some discounts. Some blockout dates, including December holidays and other peak days.
  • Southern California Annual Passport ($459) – includes some discounts. Many blockout dates, including Saturdays, December holidays and other peak days.
  • Southern California Select Annual Passport ($329) – includes some discounts. This pass has the most blockout dates, including all weekends, December holidays and other peak days.
  • Parking Add On ($199) – add-on to Deluxe, SoCal and SoCal Select passes. Renewal only, not currently available for new purchase

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

Southern California CityPASS

2016 Southern California CityPASS ($329/$294) – includes a 3-Day Disneyland Resort Park Hopper Bonus Ticket (including one early-entry day), a one-day admission to Sea World San Diego, and a one-day admission to LEGOLAND California. The CityPASS expires 14 days after first use at any location, and the first use must occur by December 31, 2016. Purchase CityPASS through the Disneyland website or on-site at the ticket booths of Disneyland Resort or the other theme parks included in the pass. You can also purchase directly from the CityPASS website, though a shipping charge may apply depending on how quickly you need the ticket.

When you purchase the CityPASS, you have the option of adding a one-day admission to either San Diego Zoo or San Diego Safari Park for an extra $38/$30. This upgraded pass is only available for purchase directly from the CityPASS website.

You can also upgrade your CityPASS to add more days at participating locations:

  • Add a 2nd day at LEGOLAND for $20. Purchase this upgrade at LEGOLAND on the day you use your CityPASS.
  • Add LEGOLAND Water Park for $30 for ages 3+ and $5 for ages 2 and under. Purchase this upgrade at LEGOLAND on the day you use your CityPASS.

Purchase the upgrade at Disneyland before the end of your third visit.

Additional Discounts

Did we miss an offer? If you know of an authorized discount on Disneyland Resort tickets, standing offers for Annual Passholders from non-Disney vendors, or other promotions which might interest our readers, please drop us a note!

Discounts for:

Everyone

Purchase with Purchase offers – Disneyland Resort shops frequently offer a reduced–price souvenir (often a tote bag, watch, or blanket) with a qualifying minimum purchase. These are offered at Disney-operated stores only, and selection may vary by location.

Recently, Disney has begun allowing customers to purchase more than one of the offers in a qualifying transaction, so if you spend $40 or more you can buy both items currently available if you wish. If you're a passholder, the minimum purchase is calculated after your discount, and your discount does not apply to the promotional item. Current offers:

  • Disneyland Snowman Mickey Tote for $19.95 with a purchase of $25 or more.
  • Disneyland Throw Blanket for $19.95 with a purchase of $40 or more.

Landry's Select Club – members of the Landry's Select Club get priority seating at the Rainforest Cafe when available (which makes a huge difference on busy days). This club replaces the former Rainforest Cafe Safari Club, and runs on a point-based system that gives you a $25 gift certificate after you spend $250. Membership now costs $25, but comes with a $25 birthday reward. We recommend that you prepurchase your membership before your visit so you can take advantage of the priority seating benefit.


ESPNZone MVP Club – membership in the MVP Club does not offer any discounts on food. However, once a member you can make an online reservation for your party up to three days in advance and will get a 25 percent increase in points purchased when playing games in the Sports Arena (and 40 bonus points at activation).

    Another logistical question mark: the new checkpoint hours. I think the DTD Starbucks opens at 4:00am on some days, and I think the posted "closing" time of DTD is 2:00am. Will the checkpoints really be staffed nearly 24 hours around the clock?
