Space Mountain reopens after incident investigation

Disneyland's Space Mountain ride has reopened following an incident last Tuesday in which a man climbed out of a ride vehicle while it was in motion. Initial reports indicated that the man fell out of the rocket during the ride, but it was later determined that he left the rocket during the coaster's initial slow-speed ascent. The Orange County Register quotes Anaheim Police Sgt. Daron Wyatt as saying, “He didn’t fall out. He had to maneuver himself around the safety mechanism.”

The man, described as being in his 20s and as having cognitive delays, was not injured, but was transported to an area hospital as a precaution. The ride remained closed for several days while the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health investigated how the man got out of the vehicle, and why safety sensors did not immediately trigger an emergency stop.

The ride was previously scheduled to close February 25 through March 14 for unrelated refurbishment.

Disney debuts $125 Princess breakfast at Napa Rose

Ever since Ariel's Grotto closed last January to make room for the Lamplight Lounge in Disney California Adventure, parents and princess fans have asked for a replacement for the character breakfast once offered at that location. The Disneyland Resort offers four character breakfast options where fans can meet Mickey and friends, but the Disney Princesses remained elusive.

Starting March 30, Disney's Napa Rose restaurant will host the new Disney Princess Breakfast Adventures, an experience that comes with a royal $125-per-person price tag. The Disney Parks Blog last week provided a brief description of the event, and noted that characters may include Belle, Tiana, Ariel, Jasmine, Mulan, Rapunzel, and others.

From the description, it seems the event takes place in stages, with a welcome in the Napa Rose Lounge before breakfast inside the restaurant. The experience ends with princess story time on the Napa Rose patio, as princesses "share the moments they felt empowered to be their true selves," and a photo opportunity.

Disney's article puts a big emphasis on the "experience" portion of this character breakfast, which serves to both explain the higher price point, and also distract from the very unusual breakfast menu. Breakfast service begins as early as 8:00 a.m., but the entree selections seem more suited to lunch or dinner. Children can order macaroni and cheese, beef sliders, or chicken and "princess waffles." Adult entrées include shepherd's pie, braised short ribs, and pork belly. The meal ends with a dessert course that includes cake pops and fruit tarts. There may be more traditional breakfast/brunch items available, but Disney has not yet posted the full menu.

The new breakfast experience is available Thursday through Monday only, from 8:00 a.m. to noon. A credit card guarantee is required for all reservations, and a fee of $10 per person is charged for no-shows or reservations canceled less than 24 hours in advance. You can book a reservation online at the Disneyland website, or bu calling (714) 781-3463.

As of publication, reservations were open only for the first four breakfast events, and all were still available. However, the first Sunday, March 31, is very close to selling out. Disney calls this a one-of-a-kind occasion, and it's certain that it will appeal to a segment of the Disney guest. However, the price point will make many parents think twice about bringing the whole family. Parents sometimes find it a hard sell to get their sons to accompany their sisters to the Ariel's Grotto breakfast at DCA, or to sit through Cinderella's Royal Table at Walt Disney World. Still, they make the reservation, if only for the sake of family togetherness.

At $125 per person, parents may be less likely to drag children—or unwilling spouses—along to this breakfast adventure, especially when that same $125 represents all or most of a one-day theme park ticket. To put it in perspective, $125 is the cost of a six-course meal at the Napa Rose chef's counter, and significantly more than any child's meal would cost at the restaurant during dinner. If I wanted to splurge for breakfast with a princess-crazy child, I'd probably send the rest of the family into the parks.

One final note: With the exception of a very brief trial run more than a decade ago, Napa Rose has not offered brunch service, although fans of the restaurant have often requested it. If this princess meal fails to attract enough diners to justify continued operation, we hope the door might be open to a classic brunch offering at the restaurant in the future.

Save the date for the 2019 CHOC Walk

Children's Hospital of Orange County asks you to Save the Date for the 2019 CHOC Walk, which returns to the Disneyland Resort on Sunday, August 11.

The annual event is the largest fundraiser for the hospital, and draws thousands of people to the Disneyland Resort during the pre-dawn hours for a 5-kilometer (3.1-mile) walk through Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. Registration opens in late February, and Team MousePlanet will once again participate.

Thanks to the efforts and generosity of our readers, Team MousePlanet has raised over $75,000 for CHOC Children's since 2008. Will invite all MousePlanet readers, friends, and family to join us at the 2019 walk. We will share registration information as soon as we have it.

Cast members kick off the new year with a 5K

This item will make a whole lot of Team MousePlanet readers sad: Disneyland had a 5K last month, and you probably weren't invited.

Over 2,600 people participated in the ChEARS to a New You cast 5k on January 20. The 3.1-mile course started with a confetti burst in Disney California Adventure, and ended with a finish line on Main Street, U.S.A. inside Disneyland. Along the way, Disneyland Resort cast members, friends and family stopped for photo opportunities, met Disney characters, and ended with an exclusive 5K medal.

Ashley Chen, a Disney PhotoPass photographer, said, "It was a great experience. Even seeing all the cast here early and working the event was amazing. Everyone was pushing each other to keep going and I’m happy to be a part of a community that wants to be healthy."

The fun run was the Disneyland Resort's fourth 5k event held for cast members and their guests. As mentioned above, the Resort will also host the CHOC Walk on Sunday, August 11. But for the time being, large runDisney events are still on hiatus in Anaheim.

Anaheim Ducks Day at Disney California Adventure – Monday, February 11

Los Angeles Rams fans won't get to see their Super Bowl hero parade down Main Street U.S.A. this year, but fans of the Anaheim Ducks can celebrate their team's 25th anniversary next Monday when the Ducks take over Hollywood Land at Disney California Adventure.

Stage 17 will serve as fan headquarters, where Ducks fans can see a collection of team memorabilia, take photos with Ducks mascot Wild Wing, and play around at table and air hockey offerings. Outside Stage 17, fans can buy some new souvenirs, including limited edition Anaheim Ducks Day apparel.

Anaheim Ducks “Through The Years,” will play in the Sunset Showcase Theater from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. This film is a highlight reel of 25 years of Anaheim Ducks hockey, including their 2007 Stanley Cup championship.

Anaheim Ducks players will participate in a cavalcade at 1:15 p.m., with viewing along Hollywood Boulevard and Buena Vista Street. Players and alumni will also participate in meet-and-greet sessions with fans outside Stage 12 at 2:15, 3:15, and 4:15 p.m.

Fans who want to meet a Ducks player must obtain a wristband from a distribution location inside Hollywood Backlot starting at park opening (8:00 a.m.) on February 11; fans are limited to one meet-and-greet, and space is limited.

Of course, Disney's foods department got into the game, and will offer a trio of hockey-themed treats. Find the orange cream puck at Trolley Treats, an anniversary-inspired macaron at Studio Catering Co., or hockey puck-themed brownie at Schmoozies.

This and That…

...Disney will update the Disney Destinations Reservation System starting today, and room and package bookings will not be available either online or via the call center Monday, February 4 through Tuesday, February 5. This outage will likely also affect travel agencies.

...The Salt & Straw scoop shop in Downtown Disney debuted its flavors for the month of February, and it should be no surprise that the collection is themed to chocolate. The company worked with Portland-area chocolatiers to create the limited-time flavors, which include Eclipse’s Cardamom Rose Chocolate, Compartes’ Coffee & Love Nuts, and the vegan Nibble’s 85% Peruvian Chocolate Sorbet. These three flavors will be available through the end of February.

  • Coming Soon! When we know, you'll know!

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 January 6, 2019.

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.
