Dapper Day at Disneyland

The Dapper Day Spring Outing to Disneyland is scheduled for this weekend, with a two-day Dapper Day Expo at the Disneyland Hotel on Saturday and Sunday. This popular event grows larger each year, so it's worth taking note if you plan to visit the parks this weekend.

While the event's official in-park day is Sunday, April 14, expect Dapper crowds as early as Friday as people make a long weekend of the party. The Dapper Day Expo takes place at the Disneyland Hotel from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. A twl-day pass with an event button is $12.50 (children 12 and under are free).

You can get a free cocktail upgrade by showing your event button on April 13 and 14 at Catal, Uva Bar, Tortilla Jo's, or Naples Ristorante.

The Outlets at Orange is also trying to lure Dapper Day crowds to that shopping center by offering the following two promotions:

  • Dress to Impress – Now through April 14, the first 50 guests to show their pre-purchased Disneyland or Dapper Day Expo ticket at Simon Guest Services, located near Adidas, will receive a $25 American Express Simon Giftcard to shop.
  • Dine in Style – Guests that attend Disneyland’s Dapper Day and/or Dapper Day Expo will receive 20% off dinner at several of The Outlets at Orange’s most popular restaurants, including BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse, Dave & Buster’s, Johnny Rockets, and Lucky Strike. Valid April 13 and 14 with proof of attendance.

You can find more information and a schedule of Dapper Day Expo seminars, entertainment, and presentations at the event website.

New Castle colors

As the refurbishment of Sleeping Beauty Castle continues, some portions of the castle walls are now visible, and show off the new paint scheme chosen for the refresh. The new colors lean towards warmer tones of pink, lavender and gray, and do not have the same shimmer as the older blue/gray/silver section.

New Disneyland After Dark details

With tickets still available for both of the Disneyland After Dark: Heroes Assemble events scheduled in three weeks, Disney has released additional information about what guests can expect at the after-hours parties.

Character meet-and-greet opportunities are a big draw of these events, and Disney has confirmed that Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange and Iron Man will be on hand for photos. The event ticket includes unlimited PhotoPass downloads of photos taken at the event.

Actress, author, and Her Universe founder Ashley Eckstein will also participate in a meet-and-greet during the event.

The event takes place at Disney California Adventure, and most major attractions will remain open for the evening. If you've had your fill of Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!, you can participate in a new scavenger hunt created for the night.

Select food and beverage locations will serve special menu items, and the elusive Infinity Gauntlet Sipper Cup will be available for sale again during the event.

The parties are Tuesday, April 30 or Wednesday, May 1. These events take place at Disney California Adventure, the future home the Super Hero-themed land Disney has said will open in 2020. Tickets for the events are $109 per person. Visit the event website for more details and to purchase tickets.

Save the Date for Taste of Downtown Disney

The 2019 Taste of Downtown Disney event is scheduled for Thursday, September 5. This annual fundraiser benefits CHOC Children’s Hospital in Orange County. The event is organized as a progressive dinner, and allows attendees to sample dishes and beverages from a variety of Downtown Disney tenants.

Since the 2018 event, Downtown Disney has welcomed Ballast Point Brewery and Salt & Straw Ice Cream, so there may be some new treats for regular attendees to look forward to.

Event details, including ticket prices and package options, will be released at a later date, and we'll share them as soon as we learn of them.

Come CHOC Walk with Team MousePlanet

Registration is now officially open for the 2019 CHOC Walk in the Park, to be held Sunday, August 11 at the Disneyland Resort.

Team MousePlanet will return for our 12th consecutive walk to support Children's Hospital Orange County. Thanks to the efforts and generosity of our readers, Team MousePlanet has raised over $75,000 for CHOC since 2008. We invite MousePlanet readers, friends, and family members to join our team for the event.

When you register for the event, you can opt to donate directly or fund-raise the registration fee.

  • Early Registration – walkers can opt to pay nothing at the time of registration, but must donate or fund-raise a minimum of $85 by Monday, July 29 to participate.
  • Late Registration – walkers pay a fee of $95 at the time of registration to secure their place at the walk.

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 registration and meet your fundraising goal, Team MousePlanet will handle check-in for you. No need to drive to check in 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.

If you prefer to have your shirt and wristband before the walk (some people like to personalize them), there is an option to have those items shipped to you.

The deadline to join Team MousePlanet and meet the $85 fundraising requirement in order for us to handle check-in for walkers is Monday, August 5. We still welcome those who register after this date, but they must handle their own check-in.

In addition to helping support an outstanding local charity, one of the benefits of participating in the CHOC Walk is the opportunity to purchase specially priced Disneyland tickets to use in the weeks after the walk. CHOC has not yet announced the dates or details this promotion for 2018; we will share details as soon as we know them.

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

This and That…

...The refurbishment of the Astro Orbiter in Disneyland's Tomorrowland was extended through April 15.

...The very popular Egg-stravaganza event is on now through Easter Sunday, April 21. There are three egg hunts again this year, one each inside Disneyland, Disney California Adventure, and Downtown Disney. A dozen oversized eggs decorated with images of Disney characters will be placed around each of the three hunt locations. Egg hunters first purchase a special map and stickers ($6.99) to help locate these eggs, then place the stickers on the corresponding spots on the map to earn a prize—one of six different two-inch-tall "eggs" featuring all-new character designs for the 2019 promotion.


Here's one of the 36 oversized Easter eggs you can spot around the Disneyland Resort. Photo by Todd Pickering.

Without giving away too many spoilers, we've found that some eggs are much harder to locate than in past years, offering a greater challenge to veteran hunters. Happy hunting, but remember—if you are only in it for the collectible eggs, you don't need to complete the egg hunt to claim your prize. Just buy your map at a redemption center and receive your egg on the spot.

...Salt & Straw Ice Cream released its seasonal flavor menu for April. At its Downtown Disney location, the line-up includes Rhubarb Crumble with Toasted Anise, Wildflower Honey with Ricotta Walnut Lace Cookies, and a vegan Orange Blossom Sorbet with Edible Flowers.

...Disneyland has released two brand-new souvenir collectibles to coincide with the theatrical release of Dumbo. The Dumbo souvenir sipper cup is $16.99, and includes your choice of beverage at the time of purchase. A smiling Dumbo sits in a Casey Jr. Railroad circus car. The Casey Jr. engine popcorn bucket is $17.00, and comes with a scoop of popcorn at the time of purchase. The two pieces connect to form a charming display that will take up entirely too much room on your desk, but will make you smile every time you see it.

...Reservations are open for the new brunch with the Easter Bunny at Catal restaurant in Downtown Disney. The family-style breakfast event at Catal features a photo opportunity with the Easter Bunny, bottomless mimosas for adults, and an apple cider cart for children. Each child receives a personalized Easter basket and a stuffed bunny.

Brunch is served between 9 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 20 and Easter Sunday, April 21. Tickets are $80 per adult and $35 per child ages 3 to 10. Children 2 and under are free, but must be counted in the party size. Reservations are open online via the Patina Group website.

…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.

  • 2019 CHOC Walk – Sunday, August 11. Thanks to the efforts and generosity of our readers, Team MousePlanet has raised over $75,000 for CHOC Children's since 2008. We invite all MousePlanet readers, friends, and family to join us at the 2019 walk—registration is open now!
  • D23 Expo – August 23–25. Tickets on sale now via the event website.
  • Gay Days at Disneyland (unofficial event) – October 4–6. More information on the event website.
2020
  • 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.

    Two things
    1) there is a train whistle built in to the Casey Jr. Popcorn bucket. you can remove the smokestack and make a train sound
    2) when I purchased the Dumbo sipper in Fantasyland (across from Red Rose Tavern) I was told I could only get the frozen lemonade or apple for my drink. I could not get a bottled diet coke. So your experience may be different.
