A Star Wars-free Update

This is a historical week for the Disneyland Resort, with the long-awaited opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge on Friday. But before we all jump light-speed to Batuu, we wanted to offer a final Star Wars-free update. Todd Pickering and I spent some time wandering around Disneyland this rainy Sunday morning, and want to share some progress from the rest of the park.

If you're craving more Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge news, check back Tuesday morning for our Black Spire Boot Camp, with everything you need to know for opening day. With all eyes on Disneyland right now, Alan Dalinka is taking the week off from the Walt Disney World Update, and will return next Tuesday with news from Florida.

More Sleeping Beauty Castle

The final construction walls are down and Sleeping Beauty Castle is now fully reopen to the public, as are the Sleeping Beauty Castle Walkthrough and Enchanted Chamber, the Fairy Tale Treasures shop, and the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.

In addition to replacing the roof and turret caps and completely repainting the castle, Disney workers took the opportunity to refresh the interior scenes of the Sleeping Beauty Castle Walkthrough. Jim Slagle, director of facility asset management for the resort, says his team punched the color of the show sets and improved the audio and the lighting throughout the attraction. The differences are noticeable even in photos, but are especially striking in person.

Main Street, U.S.A. and Adventureland

The first phase of the renovation of Disneyland's central plaza has wrapped up, leaving wider walkways and easier transitions on the west side of the hub. As part of this project, the Main Street Coffee Cart was removed, and cast members tell us it won't return to its former location. For now, cast members direct customers to either the Market Place (Starbucks) on Main Street, or to the Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe. The latter is where the Coffee Cart's famous donuts are currently available, although they're not very prominently displayed in the bakery case.

The project also saw the Guest Relations kiosk and wait-time board relocated to the east side of Main Street, near the Plaza Inn. The new wait-time board is electronic, with two screens that display attraction availability and entertainment offerings. One thing we noticed is that the screens display only the next performance of each show instead of the full schedule of performances, so you'll still need to use the Disneyland smartphone application or the increasingly hard-to-find printed entertainment schedule for additional show times.

The new Adventureland entrance sign was installed last week, wrapping up the project that saw the entrance to that land widened. The new sign is a near replica of the original, just scaled larger to fit the wider entrance.

Soarin' Over California again

Disney announced last week that the original Soarin' Over California film is returning to Disney California Adventure from June 1 to 30 as part of a special limited engagement. The Disney Parks Blog announcement was met with a fair number of comments from fans who want Disney to keep the original film at the California theme park after the limited engagement, and have it replace the updated Soarin' Around the World version that debuted in 2016 following the opening of Shanghai Disneyland.

Pizza Planet reopens

Pizza Planet reopened in Tomorrowland this weekend following a brief refurbishment, but there's still some work to be done. The original Redd Rockett's Pizza Port sign that was covered by a vinyl banner during the Pixar Fest overlay has been completely removed, but a new permanent Pizza Planet sign has yet to be installed. However, the Pizza Planet logo is now prominently affixed to the adjacent Moonliner replica.

The interior changes are noticeable as soon as you step into the restaurant. The beverage dispensers and cold cases have been removed from the center of the serving area, and replaced with a small station where you can grab a tray and proceed to pick up food from the serving stations around the room. Smaller cold cases are now located at each cash register station, along with cup dispensers.


Self-service beverage stations are now located in the dining area of Pizza Planet. Photo by Adrienne Vincent-Phoenix.

The soda dispensers are now located along one wall of the dining area, beyond the cash registers—finally ending the debate about whether soda refills are free at this location. The seating area was refurbished, with all of the central booths removed in favor of additional tables. The new layout seems to have more seating capacity, but is also a bit cramped. All of the decorations added during the Pixar Fest overlay are still in place, including the Pizza Planet sentry guard at the restaurant's entrance.

Brunch at the Lamplight Lounge

The popular Lamplight Lounge at Disney California Adventure debuted a new brunch offering this weekend. Brunch is only served on Saturday and Sunday at this time, from 8:15 a.m. to noon. This is not a character meal, so don't expect to cozy up with a Pixar Pal or princess during your meal.

The Lamplight Lounge is now open for weekend brunch. MousePlanet file photo.

The brunch menu seems to be a logical extension of the lunch and dinner menus, with the same culinary flair. Dishes include New York Avocado Toast, Crab & Potato Cake Benedict, Lamplight Chilaquiles, and a Brunch Burger topped with a fried egg and roasted green chiles. A kids menu includes French toast and a mini brunch burger.

You can start your morning with a mimosa flight or a "beermosa," or opt for non-alcoholic beverages, including brewed Joffrey's coffee, hot chocolate, or juices.

Adult entrées range from $17 to $28, with adult drinks starting at $10. Even though isn't an inexpensive breakfast option, reservations are already booked out until June 29. That said, remember that this restaurant does not offer 100% of its tables for advance reservations, so it's worth checking to see if walk-ins can be accommodated.

Once more, with details: Celebrating the Haunted Mansion's 50th anniversary

As we shared last week, Disneyland will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the iconic Haunted Mansion attraction with a pair of merchandise special events in August. Disney briefly posted details about the parties on an event website, but then the information mysteriously vanished. Disney posted an update early last week, and registration opened on time last Thursday.

The events are scheduled for August 7–8 and August 8–9, 2019. Each party begins with event sign-in on day 1, and a midnight-to-4:00 a.m. party on day 2. Tickets are $299 per person, with a purchase limit of one ticket per person, per event night.

Day 1 of each event begins with sign-in and merchandise pickup at the Disneyland Hotel between 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m., where guests can also browse any remaining merchandise in an event store and take photos with themed backdrops. At 11:30 p.m., event guests can line up outside the Disneyland gates to await entry to the park at 12:01.

Following a 1:00 a.m. opening moment, the day 2 party runs until 4:00 a.m., and includes many attractions in New Orleans Square, Frontierland, Adventureland, and Critter Country. Select shops and eateries will have special event offerings, and there will be live entertainment throughout the park.

Event guests are encouraged to come in costume (subject to Disney guidelines) and pose for photos in front of themed backdrops.

This is primarily a merchandise special event, with over 200 collectible items, or "Estate Merchandise," created for the event. The online catalog runs to six pages, which includes a special collection of items created for annual passholders. The extensive selection includes the usual assortment of shirts and pins with the event logo, but there are quite a few specialty items for the discerning collectors.

Among the more unusual items are a one-of-a-kind acoustic guitar decorated with Haunted Mansion images, listed at $33,000 (there's also an electric guitar version for $13,000). The artisans at Daniels Wood Land have a collection of figures and plaques, starting at $2,100, that are carved from reclaimed redwood.

Also novel, but decidedly more affordable, is the Host a Ghost program. For $60, an event guest can become a "caretaker" of one of the Haunted Mansion's famous residents, including the Hatbox Ghost, a Hitchhiking Ghost, the Bride, or one of the bride's accident-prone husbands. Madame Leota will capture the spirit of the selected ghost in a glass jar and package it in a collectible box with a certificate.


Event guests can purchase a Host a Ghost kit for $60. Photo © Disney.

Popular Disney collaborators Dave Avanzino, Jerrod Maruyama, Miss Mindy, the Harveys, and more will have new pieces for this event. Fashion accessories are well-represented within this collection, starting with a new Disney Dress Shoppe release patterned with the Haunted Mansion wallpaper. Three new Dooney and Bourke handbags bear the Haunted Mansion 50th anniversary logo, and jewelry from Pandora and Alex & Ani help round out the ensemble. Imagineer Kim Irvine has even designed a Haunted Mansion headband for this collection, part of the Disney Parks Designer Collection announced last week.

Well-heeled collectors may be interested in original Haunted Mansion artwork by pop culture artist SHAG, offered at $25,000, but the image will also appear on a whole collection of merchandise with more modest price points, including $15 drinking glasses, a $25 coaster set and a $28 home decor pillow.

In fact, many of the original art pieces created for this event will be sold in limited-edition or open edition formats, allowing those who can't drop $6,000 or more on an original painting to own a limited edition canvas print of the work for $400, a smaller art print for $40, or even a postcard of the image for $5.

Most of the limited edition items will be offered to event guests using Disney's Random Selection Process, in which guests select the items they'd like to purchase and Disney's system distributes the available quantity among the interested customers. However, in a Disney Parks Blog article, event programming manager Michelle Harker says that many of these items will debut at the Haunted Mansion event, but are not necessarily exclusive to the event. "Should quantities of any of those items remain you can expect to find them in locations at both Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort following the event." In fact, one item from the event catalog—the OtterBox phone case featuring Madame Leota—has already been released at the Disneyland Resort.

When the event was officially announced, some potential guests balked at Disney's purchase limit of one ticket per person, per event night, which meant couples, families and groups hoping to attend together would have to purchase their own tickets in different transactions. People said they were hesitant to buy a ticket for themselves without being able to ensure that their spouse or friend could also attend.

With tickets still available five days after registration opened, it's reasonably safe to assume that groups who want to get tickets to go together will be able to do so. However, the fact that tickets are still available points to potential issues with the event itself. The 50th anniversary of the Haunted Mansion is a big deal for some Disney fans, but this event is much more about the merchandise than it is the experience of the Mansion. Disney clearly expected enough interest in this event that they planned two consecutive dates, but it seems the demand for a $300, three-hour, pre-dawn party was much less than hoped. Hopefully Disney will release additional details about the event that can help justify the $300 ticket price for those who aren't just in it for the merchandise.

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.

  • 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.

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!

New! Just click the category you want to expand (or close).

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.


Character dining vouchers – Disneyland is no longer offering tickets or vouchers to be pre-purchased for Character Dining. You may still make reservations 60 days in advance with payment due at the restaurant.

Annual Passholders

Disneyland Resort merchandise – Disneyland has once again extended the additional 20% merchandise discount offered to Disney Signature Plus, Disney Signature, Disney Premier, and Premium annual passholders, this time through December 31, 2019.

Disneyland Resort Military Discounts

Ticket discounts

Through December 18, 2019, active and retired U.S. military personnel (including active and retired members of the United States Coast Guard, National Guard and Reservists) or their spouses can purchase:

  • Disney Military Promotional 3-Day Park Hopper Tickets for $178 each (an increase of $10 from the 2018 offer)
  • Disney Military Promotional 4-Day Park Hopper Tickets for $198 each (an increase of $10 from the 2018 offer)

Disneyland tickets may be used through December 18, 2019, excluding the spring break blockout of April 14–22, 2019.

Active and retired U.S. military personnel can purchase Disney Military Promotional Tickets for themselves and up to five additional family members or friends. No more than six Disney Military Promotional Tickets may be purchased by any eligible member of the U.S. military (or spouse) pursuant to this offer. All tickets and options are non-transferable and must be used by December 18, 2019.

Hotel discounts

Military discounts are valid for stays most nights from January 1 through December 19, 2019. Travel must be completed by December 20, 2019.

Disney does not publish the actual discounted rates, and instead asks eligible U.S. military personnel to call (714) 520-7088 to check pricing, availability and to make reservations. In past years, the offer was generally 30% to 40% off, based on room category.

Unlike the Walt Disney World version, the Disneyland offer allows the eligible service member to book up to two rooms, and allows their spouse (with valid and proper ID) to qualify in the absence of the service member.

Photopass Discount

Eligible service members can purchase the Photopass Collection for $49 plus tax through December 21, 2019. The package includes digital downloads of all PhotoPass photos in the user's account when they redeem the voucher; a voucher for a dining print package, and a Disneyland photo disc with 350 stock photos from around the Disneyland Resort.
