Pixar Pier time line | New character dining debuts July 10 | City of Anaheim announces inaugural "Heroes" running events | This and that…

Pixar Pier time line

The Disneyland website updated this weekend to include calendar information for the weekend of June 23, the announced grand opening date for Pixar Pier at Disney California Adventure. The refurbishment schedule as currently posted poses some questions about exactly what will reopen that weekend, and which locations will remain closed until some later date.

The calendar shows the Incredicoaster opening on Saturday, June 23 as previously announced. That is also the date the Cove Bar appears set to reopen, but the adjacent Ariel's Grotto restaurant is still listed as closed. This is likely a naming issue, as both the Cove Bar and Ariel's Grotto are merging into one new venue, the Lamplight Lounge. The Cove Bar reopened for Spring, and will close again on May 29 for the final phase of its transformation.

A name change may also be the reason Mickey's Fun Wheel is listed as closed beyond June 23. That ride will be renamed the Pixar Pal-A-Round, and at last check was still scheduled to open June 23.

The new Poultry Palace, Señor Buzz Churros, and Angry Dogs kiosks were also announced to open with Pixar Pier, but their former locations remain on the refurbishment list beyond June 23.

New character dining debuts July 10

Two Disneyland Resort dining locations will change up their character meal offerings as of July 10, with Mickey changing restaurants, and a new crew heading to the Paradise Pier hotel.

Donald Duck’s Seaside Breakfast

The PCH Grill at the Paradise Pier hotel debuts Donald Duck’s Seaside Breakfast on July 10, replacing the current Surf's Up! Breakfast with Mickey and Friends. Donald, Daisy and Stitch are scheduled to appear at this meal.

This character breakfast is open Monday through Thursday from 7:00 to 11:00 a.m., and Friday through Sunday from 7:00 to 11:30.

Mickey’s Tales of Adventure Character Breakfast

Mickey and friends will now appear in the new Mickey’s Tales of Adventure Character Breakfast at the Storytellers Cafe in Disney's Grand Californian Hotel.

This character breakfast is open Monday through Thursday from 7:00 to 11:30 a.m. Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. The breakfast buffet is offered from 7:00 to 11:30 a.m., and a brunch buffet served from 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

In addition, the Minnie & Friends – Breakfast in the Park is still offered daily at the Plaza Inn inside Disneyland. This meal usually features Minnie Mouse, Tigger, Captain Hook, and the Fairy Godmother.

Finally, Goofy’s Kitchen remains the most popular character meal at the resort, offering breakfast and dinner buffets. With the closure of Ariel's Grotto, Disney ended the only Princess-themed character meal offered on the West Coast, and thus far has not announced a new offering.

Effective Tuesday, July 10, Mickey’s Tales of Adventure Character Breakfast and Goofy's Kitchen are classified as Premium character dining, with Donald Duck’s Seaside Breakfast and Minnie & Friends – Breakfast in the Park classified as Regular character dining. This distinction matters to visitors who use dining vouchers that come with some travel packages.

Discounted character dining vouchers are also available for purchase online in advance of your trip through MousePlanet sponsor Get Away Travel.

City of Anaheim announces inaugural "Heroes" running events

From the MousePlanet blog:

Last month, we came across a press release announcing that runners will be able to run the streets of Anaheim this Veteran's Day weekend, in a series of Heroes-themed races, visiting such Anaheim landmarks as the Convention Center, Angel Stadium, and the Honda Center.

"But wait," you say, "didn't runDisney put their West Coast events on hiatus?" They did—and now a newly formed "Run Anaheim" organization is looking to fill the vacuum. Run Anaheim is a division of the city's Sports Anaheim marketing group, which helps promote professional and amateur sporting events.

The inaugural Heroes Weekend includes a 10-mile run on Saturday November 10, and a 5K and 1K kids run on Sunday November 11, exactly one year after runDisney hosted its final Super Heroes Half Marathon weekend.

As this isn't a runDisney event, "Heroes" of this particular race aren't of the Marvel variety, but everyday heroes and community leaders.

"We founded heroes weekend to celebrate all of the hometown heroes in our lives that make a difference every day," says Roy Edmondson, vice president of Sports Anaheim. "We are looking forward to welcoming the community and beyond for a fun and healthy weekend to raise awareness and contributions to the area's heroes and charities."

During registration, runners select a specific Anaheim charity to receive a portion of their race fees, which are considerably less than similar runDisney events. The 10-mile run is $89, or $70 during early bird registration. The 5K is $45 ($25 during early bird), and the kids run is just $15 ($10 during early bird).

The course maps for the 10-mile run and 5K are not yet published. All races start and end at the Honda Center, and it's likely the kids race will be entirely within the parking lot.

If the theme and weekend sound familiar, some other names may also ring a bell. Sports Anaheim hired Spectrum Sports Management to produce the event, and offers travel packages through GET Travel.

Spectrum Sports managed many of the runDisney events at the Disneyland Resort, and helped grow the brand from one weekend to four events per year. GET Travel is one of the travel providers for domestic runDisney events, and helps manage the Disneyland Paris race weekend. So while Run Anaheim is the new kid on the (starting) block, the event itself seems to be in the hands of seasoned race veterans.

Will runDisney fans, set adrift by Disney's hiatus, flock to this new Heroes offering, or will they wait until they can once again race through the Disney parks? Beyond that, if and when runDisney returns to the West Coast running scene, will Run Anaheim step aside and let Disney reclaim Veteran's Day weekend, or will the two entities compete for both road and runners?

When runDisney announced its hiatus last fall, we wrote how Disney cast members suggested that strained relations between the Disneyland Resort and the City of Anaheim might have factored into the decision to put West Coast events on hold. runDisney required the cooperation of Anaheim and neighboring Garden Grove to maintain street closures for race courses, which left Disney property, and to request CalTrans to close freeway off-ramps along the course. The Los Angeles Times reported on then-recent changes to Anaheim's City Council, and suggested that the city is being less cooperative with Disney on several fronts. "Anaheim is making it very difficult for us, that's for sure," said one person familiar with West Coast race operations.

Come CHOC Walk with Team MousePlanet

Registration is now officially open for the 2018 CHOC Walk in the Park, to be held Sunday, August 26 at the Disneyland Resort.

Team MousePlanet will return for our 11th consecutive walk to support Children's Hospital Orange County. Thanks to the efforts and generosity of our readers, Team MousePlanet has raised over $70,000 for CHOC since 2008. We invite MousePlanet readers, friends, and family members to join our team for the event.

Why Join Team MousePlanet?

COMMUNITY! Walking with Team MousePlanet is a great way to spend a morning with MousePlanet staff and readers, all while raising money for a great cause. Stay after the walk and enjoy Disneyland with your fellow Disney fans.

CONVENIENCE! If you register during Early Bird registration and meet your fundraising goal, Team MousePlanet will handle check-in for you. No need to drive to Orange the week before the walk to collect your wristband and T-shirt. You need only meet us in Downtown Disney the morning of the walk to collect your goodies, then head right into Disneyland to start the walk.

Are you ready to CHOC Walk with Team MousePlanet? It's easy to sign up—just visit our team page.

The Infinity Gauntlet souvenir sipper sold out over the weekend, but more inventory is expected this week. Photo by Todd Pickering.

...Disney's popcorn buckets and souvenir cups are extremely popular collectibles, and there was a surprise release this weekend of a new souvenir sipper based on Avengers: Infinity War. The new beverage holder is a replica of the Infinity Gauntlet, complete with six colored stones, and is designed to be worn on the arm. The beverage compartment is located inside the fist, with a straw near the thumb.

The sipper was sold this weekend at several locations in Disney California Adventure. At outdoor vending carts, the sipper is $20 (including tax), and comes with a bottled soft drink. At counter service locations, the sipper is $18.49 plus tax, and comes with a fountain beverage.

...World of Color is scheduled to return on Friday, June 22. As of this publication, the schedule lists only one show each night at 10:15 p.m., following an 8:50 p.m. performance of the Paint the Night parade.

...The Alamo Rent A Car office currently located in Downtown Disney will relocate to the Paradise Pier Hotel, according to building permits filed with the city of Anaheim. The new office will be located inside a first-floor room which currently houses a group of vending machines.

…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).

2018

  • Pixar Fest – April 13 to September 3. Highlights include the new "Together Forever – A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular" fireworks show, as well as performances of the Paint the Night parade in Disney California Adventure, and the Pixar Play Parade in Disneyland.
  • 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.

  • Gay Days at Disneyland (unofficial event) – October 5–7. More information on the event website.
  • Moonlight Magic after-hours event for Disney Vacation Club members – Thursday, November 15. Reservations open October 4.

2019

  • D23 Expo – August 23–25, 2019. Tickets go on sale August 23, 2018 via the event website.

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 February 11, 2018.

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 like MousePlanet travel partner Get Away Today.

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).


Character Dining Vouchers – discounted character dining vouchers are available for purchase online, in advance of your trip, through Get Away Travel.

Southern California residents

Southern California residents can visit the Disneyland Resort theme parks multiple days before May 24, 2018 for as little as $159 with the 2018 So Cal Resident ticket.

The 2-Day So Cal Resident 1-Park Per Day ticket offers residents of Southern California and Northern Baja California admission to either Disneyland or Disney California Adventure on one day, and then a second visit to either park on another day on or before May 24.

You can use both days of this ticket at the same theme park, or visit one park one day and the other park on the second day, but you cannot use it to enter both parks on the same day. The ticket is $159 for ages 3 and up, a discount of 20% compared to box office prices and a $10 increase from the 2017 promotion.

You can also upgrade the ticket to a park-hopper, which allows entry to both parks each day, for an additional $45, a savings of up to $40 compared to the box office price of a two-day park-hopper ticket.

If you want an extra day to visit the parks, there is also a 3-Day 1-Park per Day option ($199) and a 3-Day Park Hopper ticket ($244) in the promotion.

You can either purchase tickets at the Disneyland Resort ticket booths, or online at Disneyland.com and print them at home. You can also purchase them by calling (714) 781-4636.

If purchased in advance of arrival, the three-day tickets include one Magic Morning admission. This benefit does not come with tickets purchased at the theme park ticket booths, so make sure to order online and print at home before you arrive. If purchasing at a participating third party ticket outlet, double-check that their 3-day tickets come with this feature.

There is no "fuse" on this ticket, which means you can use the first admission today and wait until May to use the second (or third) admission. You must, however, purchase the ticket by May 21, 2018. Tickets expire May 24, 2018, and are blocked out March 23 through April 8, 2018.
