New Year's week toolkit | Three Kings Day at DCA | 2018 Adults at Kids' Prices offer from Get Away Today | This and that…

Final week of Festivals

The New Year has arrived, bringing with it the return of the Annual Passholders, most of whom have been blocked out since mid-December. Signature passholders can use their passes again starting today, January 2, with Deluxe passholders getting the green light tomorrow. Holders of the Southern California pass can return on Sunday, January 7, and the SoCal Select pass is valid once more starting next Monday, January 8.

With the returning passholders mingling with the last of the holiday revelers, expect the crowds this week to be only slightly diminished from the prior two weeks. This is also the final week of the popular Festival of Holidays offering, and the last hurrah before the spring refurbishment season begins.

Last chance to see the following:

Seasonal attractions:

  • Haunted Mansion Holiday – Sunday, January 7 final operating day of the season
  • "it's a small world" Holiday – Sunday, January 21 final operating day of the season

Seasonal entertainment

  • A Christmas Fantasy Parade – Sunday, January 7 at 3:30 p.m. final performance of the season
  • "Believe...In Holiday Magic" Fireworks Spectacular – Sunday, January 7 at 9:20 p.m. final performance of the season
  • Festival of Holidays – Sunday, January 7 final operating day of the season
  • Disney ¡Viva Navidad! Street Party – Saturday, January 6 at 6:30 p.m. final performance of the seasons
  • World of Color – Season of Light – Sunday, January 7 at 10:15 p.m. final performance of the season

Paradise Pier

The following attractions close January 8 as part of the Pixar Pier retheme. No reopening date is available at this time, and most of the locations will have new names when they return:

  • Games of the Boardwalk
  • California Screamin'
  • Mickey's Fun Wheel
  • Boardwalk Bazaar
  • Sideshow Shirts
  • Treasures in Paradise
  • Point Magu Tattoo

Downtown Disney

  • Build-a-Bear – scheduled to close Sunday, January 7 to make room for additional dining offerings.
  • Ridemakerz – scheduled to close Sunday, January 7 to make room for additional dining offerings.

Three Kings Day at DCA

Disney California Adventure wraps up the ¡Viva Navidad! promotion with a Three Kings Day event in Paradise Gardens. This is a low-key addition to the existing ¡Viva Navidad! setup, but look for children's craft areas, a display of Three Wise Men figurines, and of course a cart where you can purchase a slice of Rosca de Reyes (Kings bread). Eat carefully—there might be a hidden surprise inside the bread, which is said to bring good fortune to the person who finds it.

This and that…

...Splash Mountain and the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail both kick off the 2018 refurbishment season a bit early this week, and are both closed at least through February 12.

...Disneyland has for several years in a row renewed a 20 percent merchandise discount, originally offered to Disney Signature Plus, Disney Signature, Disney Premier and Premium annual passholders as a limited time promotion. The most recent extension of this offer expired December 31, 2017. While the Annual Passholder discount page has not been updated to indicate whether the discount was extended again through 2018, there were no reports of eligible passholders being denied the 20% discount on Monday. We expect the website will be updated soon.

…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).

  • Disneyland After Dark after-hours event – Thursday, January 18. Tickets are now on sale at the event website. .
  • Lunar New Year Festival at Disney California Adventure – January 26 through February 18.
  • Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival – March 2 through April 12.
  • Pixar Fest begins – April 13. Debut of the new "Together Forever – A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular" fireworks show, as well as the first performances of the Paint the Night parade in Disney California Adventure, and Pixar Play Parade in Disneyland.
  • Dapper Day Spring Outing to Disneyland (unofficial event) – Sunday, April 22. 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.
  • 2018 Grad Nites: May 4, 5, 11, 12, 15, 16, 18, 19, 22, 23, 29 and 30; June 1, 2, 5, 6, 8 and 9.
  • Moonlight Magic after-hours event for Disney Vacation Club members – Thursday, November 15. Reservations open October 4.

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.

Non-Disney Resort Events

Current Discounts & Promotions

Disneyland prices as of February 28, 2016.

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.

Prices listed above are subject to change without notice.

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.

Disney usually 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 Holiday Tote for $19.95 with a purchase of $25 or more.
  • Disneyland Holiday Fleece 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 pre-purchase 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). You must register online and your membership card will then be mailed to you within two weeks. The card must then be activated at any ESPNZone by the person who signed up for the card and ID will be required (link).

    Grizzly River Run – closes January 8 - February 1 for refurbishment.

    This was actually closed (with no water visible in the attraction aside form the small puddles at the bottom where the rafts were resting) yesterday (1/2/2018). With no water in the ride, is it safe to assume they closed it early for the scheduled refurb and wouldn't try to refill it for just 4-5 days before the previously scheduled downtime?

    Oh, well. I see Splash is down too starting today. I didn't try to do that during the high crowds on Sunday, so I guess I don't get wet this trip.

    Thanks for the updates!

    Just correcting that yesterday was 1/1/2018, and that we also saw that the ride was down yesterday. I only noticed because I was looking at the water wheel.

    Ooops....that's what I get for posting too early. Yes, meant 1/1. Thanks for the catch.

    In better news, it was up and running when I walked by on 1/2. I guess refilling it with water isn't as big a deal as I assumed.

    I may have new thing for the "to do" list before I leave.😏

    Hey, wait a minute... checking the official park schedule, looks like when "Believe...In Holiday Magic" Fireworks leave on the 7th they aren't being replaced at all? Odder still, "World Of Color" will be flipping some sort of magic switch on the 7th, changing from "Season of Light" back to normal World of Color with no down time -
    plus, both "Fantasmic!" and "World of Color" are scheduled for every night of the week through the end of January... that's weird for what is traditionally considered "The Off Season", isn't it? Not that there's really an "Off Season" any more

    They actually drain this one at night. The holding area for this attraction's water is the water next to Pacific Wharf. You can tell when they drain it.

    Thanks for the tip. Sorry if I caused any undue concern, it was really down that one day(at least when I walked by), but was up I think every time I walked by after that. I think I saw some unfortunate kid's lost Groot toy doing a back float in that pool of water one day.

    I rode on 1/3, and got soaked. First time (I think) on one of these rides where I actually did feel the need to change into my spare pants I brought, though that probably was influenced since I was wearing jeans rather than shorts.

    Sort of funny since I and the family in the raft with me were discussing whether Grizzly or Kali had a higher soak factor. We had collectively agreed it was probably Kali, so then the Disney Gods decided to show us a thing or 2 this visit . It was a riot how the small boy was commenting how he didn't' get too wet, since it was due to the 2 large adults on either side of him acting as sponges/shields...

    Yes, it really is that quick. There are no physical changes required to switch between the shows. They can even run multiple versions on the same night.
