Mickey turns 90

Disneyland commemorated Mickey Mouse's 90th birthday with a character-filled cavalcade down Main Street U.S.A. on Sunday, and our Todd Alan Pickering was on hand to experience the day with several thousand of his closest Disney fan friends. Todd shared highlights from the day to the MousePlanet Instagram account; go there for even more photos and videos from the day.

Get Your Ears On in 2019

Here's good news for fans of Mickey's Soundsational Parade—an updated version of Disneyland's daytime parade returns to the park on January 25, 2019, as part of Get Your Ears On – A Mickey and Minnie Celebration. This limited-time celebration looks to be the winter/spring marketing hook, as Disneyland counts down to the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge next summer.

Before we see the updated Soundsational parade, Disneyland is debuting Mickey’s Mix Magic, a nighttime dance party on January 18. The show will make use of the fancy projection mapping systems installed on Main Street, at Rivers of America, and at "it's a small world," and previously used for the "Disneyland Forever" and "Together Forever – A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular" fireworks shows. Disney says the show will feature "'DJ' Mickey spinning dance-tastic twists on favorite Disney melodies," and on select nights will also include fireworks above Disneyland.

Mickey and Minnie are also the focus of a Valentine's Month celebration January 22 through February 18. Look for commemorative merchandise and themed food items during this festival.

Star Wars announcements and Destination D recap

This weekend on Orlando, the official D23 fan club hosted the Destination D event, at which Disney executives made quite a few major announcements about future plans for the domestic and international theme parks. Our Alan S. Dalinka covered the event, and shared each new announcement via our MousePlanet Twitter account as news broke.

While much of the news was about projects at Walt Disney World, the information shared about Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is of interest to fans on both coasts. Disney released the official names of the two rides inside Galaxy's Edge: "Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run," and "Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance."

Disney also announced that Oscar-winning composer John Williams is scoring all-new original music for Galaxy's Edge. These announcements were accompanied by videos, which we've included here. Alan will certainly have more from Destination D in his Walt Disney World Update tomorrow on MousePlanet, and I encourage you to check in again tomorrow for his perspective on the news.

Even with all of the news, it seems some fans were hoping that Disney would confirm a popular Internet rumor that a Disneyland version of the new Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is planned for Mickey's Toon Town. In fact, Disney announced no new rides for the Anaheim resort. This shouldn't be too much of a surprise for several reasons. First, the big D23 Expo is scheduled for next summer in Anaheim, and Disney likely wants to have some major announcements to share at that event. Disneyland is also preparing to open Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge in 2019, and there's no need to draw any attention from that project.

Another, more recent reason may have to do with results of the recent elections in Anaheim, where residents elected a city council majority generally seen as friendly to Disney as a corporate neighbor, but also voted to pass a minimum wage ordinance that was targeted at the Disneyland Resort. Disney has some time before it needs to make any big attention-grabbing announcements about plans for Anaheim, and the company may be waiting to see how various bureaucratic and legal challenges shake out before announcing any additional investment in Anaheim.

Disney increases #ShareYourEars pledge

During the Destination D event in Orlando, Disney pledged an additional $1 million for the 2018 Share Your Ears benefiting Make-A-Wish. This brings the total donation to $3 million.

Fans help generate donations each time they share a public photo of Mickey Mouse ears—or any "creative ears"—on social media sites Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram using the hashtag #ShareYourEars. Disney extended the deadline to share photos until November 27, 2018, and will donate $5 per photo shared.

Both the Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort have themed photo walls where visitors can take photos for the promotion. The ships of the Disney Cruise Line also offer a special backdrop, and Disney Stores around the country offer visitors a place to decorate a pair of paper Mickey Mouse ears, then snap a picture in a special #ShareYourEars photo frame.

You don't need to stop by an official Disney photo spot to participate; any public share with the #ShareYourEars hashtag made on one of the three social media sites will qualify. Learn more about the promotion at ShareYourEars.org.

Harbor security checkpoint to get 12 new tents before Christmas

Disney recently filed a pair of building permits relating to the security checkpoint on the east side of the Esplanade. One permit details the demolition of the Information booth previously used to assist visitors entering from the Harbor Boulevard entrance. The second permit details the construction of a 4,800-square-foot "pre-fabricated open air shade structure with electrical and metal fencing gate."

Disney confirms it is building 12 new screening tents at the East Entry Security Check Point. The work will happen over the next several weeks, and should be wrapped up in time for the peak holiday crowds. The current screening tents will remain in use during construction.

This and That…

...The New York Times last week published a detailed look at Disney's plans for expansion across its theme park empire, with updates on projects from Florida to Hong Kong. Included in the article was new concept artwork for a "Marvel-themed ride" at Disney California Adventure, featuring Spider-Man. The artwork provides no real details, but shows that the new ride building is located where the former Bugs Land theater stood.

...The first batch of Disneyland's famous handmade candy canes will be sold this Friday, November 23 at the Candy Palace on Main Street. If Black Friday sales prevent you from visiting Disneyland Friday morning, you can come back any day (excluding Sundays) through Christmas Day to purchase one of the treats from the Candy Palace or Trolley Treats in DCA.

...To commemorate the March 8, 2019 release of the Captain Marvel movie, the title character, Captain Marvel herself, will appear in a new meet-and-greet at Disney California Adventure. Captain Marvel will join Black Panther, Spider-Man and Captain America for a limited time.

...Los Angeles television station KTLA is hosting a holiday contest, and the grand prize is four Disney Signature Plus Annual Passports. Visit the contest website for details and eligibility requirements.

…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 email in the box below.

2018
  • Holiday Time at the Disneyland Resort – through January 6, 2019
  • Festival of Holidays at Disney California Adventure – through January 8, 2019
  • Candlelight Ceremony and Processional – Saturday, December 1 and Sunday, December 2, with two performances each night.
2019

  • Dapper Day Fall Outing to Disneyland (unofficial event) – Sunday, April 14. More information at the event website.
  • Bats Day in the Fun Park (unofficial event) – May 5. More information on the event website.
  • Grad Nite – May 10, 11, 17, 18, 21, 22, 28, 29, and 31; June 4, 5, 7, 8, 11, 12, and 14
  • D23 Expo – August 23–25, 2019. Tickets on sale now via the event website.
  • Gay Days at Disneyland (unofficial event) – October 4–6. More information on 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.
