Spring Special

For travel now until May 23, 2019 you can save up to $111 per ticket with Get Away Today’s spring savings. So if you want to squeeze in a visit to Disneyland before Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens, the spring savings are the best they will be for 2019! And don’t worry, going before May 23 will not mean you miss out on unique, exciting experiences at Disneyland or Disney California Adventure.

Get Your Ears On: A Mickey and Minnie Celebration

No end date has been announced yet for this Disneyland event, but it’s suspected Mickey and Minnie’s birthday party will conclude before Star Wars Land opens up. At the Get Your Ears On Celebration, you can experience the 90th birthday of Mickey and Minnie Mouse, everyone’s most beloved celebrity couple. There are exclusive new Mickey shaped treats and merchandise in the Resort for the occasion, and a couple of new attractions. Mickey’s Mix Magic is a nighttime, family friendly dance party during Get Your Ears On, and there is also Mickey’s Soundsational Parade during the day. These attractions will delight with new and old music alike, as well as with your favorite Disney Characters making appearances.

Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival takes place March 1 to April 23, 2019.

Disney Food and Wine Festival

For the food lovers, the Disney Food and Wine Festival runs until April 23, 2019 in Disney California Adventure. You can stroll through the Festival and participate in events that are either free with your California Adventure admission, or an additional charge. There are cooking demonstrations for both kids and adults, plus celebrity chef meet and greets. If you purchase the Sip and Savor Pass, you can get eight (8) food purchases for just $6.75 each. It’s a great way to save money and get items from vendors that would otherwise cost more than $6.75 to purchase.

Jessie’s Critter Carousel

In Pixar Pier, located in Disney California Adventure Park, Jessie’s Critter Carousel just opened up at the end of March. For anyone who’s seen Toy Story 2, you’ll recognize the Woody’s Roundup theme of this new ride. The Critter Carousel is fun for preschoolers up to tween-aged kids, and features creatures from Woody’s Roundup. This is a great alternative to the Incredicoaster for those who aren’t tall enough to ride, or aren’t yet ready for the thrill of a coaster. Join Jessie and the gang for a nice spin in Pixar Pier, then stop by Señor Buzz’s Churro stand for a treat. Also, Disney recently released that Bo Peep from Toy Story will be visiting Disneyland this summer, so you have a chance to see her while you’re moseying around Pixar Pier.

The magic of Disney animation and music will come to life in April 2019 in the 3D movie musical “Mickey’s PhilharMagic,” located in the Sunset Showcase Theater at Disney California Adventure Park. Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and other favorite Disney characters will take guests into the fantastic world of classic Disney animated musical sequences “Beauty and the Beast” and “The Little Mermaid,” to “Peter Pan” and “Aladdin.” Disney California Adventure Park is located in Anaheim, Calif.

Opening later in April 2019 is Mickey’s PhilharMagic. Also located in Disney California Adventure Park, Mickey’s PhilharMagic will unite music and animation in this nostalgic attraction. Donald Duck will be caught up in a 3D dream world as he’s preparing the orchestra for his ol’ pal Mickey. Enjoy a throwback to classic Disney tales such as “Beauty and the Beast,” “The Little Mermaid” and “Peter Pan.” Mickey’s PhilharMagic can be enjoyed at the Sunset Showcase Theater in Hollywood Land.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will open May 31, 2019, at Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California, and Aug. 29, 2019, at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. At 14 acres each, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will be Disney’s largest single-themed land expansions ever, transporting guests to live their own Star Wars adventures in Black Spire Outpost, a village on the remote planet of Batuu, full of unique sights, sounds, smells and tastes.
