Jedi Training Academy to end run at Disneyland

Disneyland's popular Jedi Training Academy show has been a fixture of Tomorrowland for the past 12 years, but last week cast members received an end-of-run notice informing them that the last performance of Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple will be Saturday, November 3, 2018.

A spokesperson for Disneyland confirmed the cancellation, telling MousePlanet, "At the Disneyland Resort, we continually refine and adjust our creative entertainment offerings while still preserving the Guest experience." The spokesperson said that Star Wars remains a huge focus for the Resort, and the company is looking forward to the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge next summer.

At this time, Disney has announced no plans to present a new or updated version of Jedi Training Academy within Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. The Walt Disney World version of the show is not affected by this notice.

If you're planning a trip to visit the show during the final month, be sure to preregister your potential Padawan for a show as soon as the park opens. Look for the kiosk at the exit of the Star Wars Launch Bay in Tomorrowland. Children must be between the ages of 4 and 12, and preregistration is first-come, first-serve, while space remains.

You must have your child with you to pre-egister—no registering for a child who is "coming later." Once you register, cast members will tell you when and where to return for the show.

September 2019 AP blockout calendar released

Southern California Select annual passholders can circle Monday, September 3, 2019 on their calendars and request time off from work now. That appears to be the first day holders of Disney's most-restricted pass can visit Disneyland to get a look at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge without buying separate one-day admission, according to new AP blockout calendars released this weekend.

Passholders with the Southern California pass can get into the park a few days earlier, as their pass is valid August 26–29, 2019 before a Labor Day blockout. That pass is again valid starting September 3, and everyday except Saturdays for the rest of the month.

In June, the Disneyland Resort introduced park-specific blockout calendars for the annual passport program. Under the new calendars, Disneyland park and Disney California Adventure park have separate schedules of blockout dates, and there are days, weeks, and even months where some passholders can visit Disney California Adventure, but are blocked out from visiting Disneyland. This new blockout schedule applies to all Disneyland Resort annual passports purchased, renewed, or activated on or after June 2, 2018.

There are still no changes to the blockout dates for Signature or Signature Plus annual passports, which retain park hopper access on all days those passes are otherwise valid.

Disney usually publishes the blockout calendar on a rolling 12-month basis; expect to see the October 2019 calendar around the end of this month.

Disneyland names 2019-2020 Ambassador duo

Last week, Disneyland Resort President Josh D’Amaro named Tomorrowland attractions lead Rafa Barron and Disney performer Justin Rapp as the 2019–2020 Disneyland Resort Ambassador Team. The two are the first all-male Ambassador duo to represent the Disneyland Resort, and will serve during the grand opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.

Disney says Rapp began his Disney career in 2012 as a Jungle Cruise Skipper, and later joined the Entertainment department as a performer. Barron is an attractions lead, area trainer, and orientation trainer.

The Ambassador program dates back to 1965, when Walt Disney selected guest relations hostess Julie Reihm to serve as the Disneyland Ambassador to the World during the park's 10th anniversary. Reihm helped handle interview and public appearance requests, traveled to five continents to represent Walt Disney and Disneyland, and served as VIP host for luminaries who visited Disneyland during the anniversary celebration. The position proved so valuable that an Ambassador or Ambassador team has represented Disneyland ever since. Walt Disney World and the international Disney resorts also all have Ambassador programs.

For the first three decades of the program, the Disneyland Ambassador, sometimes referred to as the "traveling ambassador" or "Disneyland Hostess," was a female cast member, often selected from the ranks of guest relations hostesses. The first Ambassador team, including the first male Disneyland Ambassador, was selected in 1995. 2002 Ambassador Matt Ebeling was the first solo male Ambassador chosen worldwide.

Following a two-month training period, the new Ambassador teams begins 2019 with a schedule packed with local, national, and international events. The Ambassadors works closely with the manager of the Ambassador program, who schedules appearances and commitments. Typical duties include hospital visits and parade appearances with the Disney characters, and participating in community outreach events and academic incentive programs.

2018
  • Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort – September 7 to October 31, 2018
  • Mickey's Halloween Party at Disneyland – September 19, 21, 24, 26, 28; October 2, 5, 9, 12, 16, 19, 23, 26, 29, 31. All events are sold out online, but tickets may be available for select nights at the main entrance ticket booths.

  • Dapper Day Fall Outing to Disneyland (unofficial event) – Sunday, November 4. 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.
  • Holiday Time at the Disneyland Resort – November 7, 2018 – January 6, 2019
  • Festival of Holidays at Disney California Adventure – November 7, 2018 – January 8, 2019
  • Mickey Mouse's 90th birthday – November 18, 2018. Celebration cavalcade planned to commemorate the day, and a special moment at Sleeping Beauty Castle.
  • Moonlight Magic after-hours event for Disney Vacation Club members – Thursday, November 15. The event is sold out.
  • Candlelight Ceremony and Processional – Saturday, December 1 and Sunday, December 2, with two performances each night.
2019
  • D23 Expo – August 23–25, 2019. Tickets on sale now 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 and Promotions

Disneyland prices as of June 1, 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.
