The Disneyland Resort held its popular Annual Passholder Appreciate Party this week and for the first time it was actually spread over two nights instead of just one. Unlike the inaugural event which had a St. Patrick's Day theme to it last year, this event was held at Disneyland.
There were not a lot of special frills added to the evening but it was still a worthwhile trip for those in attendance if character appearances were a top priority. Aside from fun character greetings, there was a special dance party in Fantasy Faire lead by the Wicked Stepmother and her two daughters.
Plus, there was a special Fastpass-free private showing of Fantasmic! was scheduled during the event and Tomorrowland perennial entertainer Tomasina kept the crowds dancing.

Disneyland Resort is currently in the midst of a whirlwind of construction and refurbishment projects as they get ready for the upcoming 60th Anniversary celebration which kicks off on May 22 of this year. Several attractions are currently closed, several areas are closed off for refurbishment, and yet the parks continue to be quite crowded!
It's been a minute since we were last able to visit the parks (planning a wedding takes up quite a bit of any free time that one has available!) so we ran through quite a few things that have happened since our last visit!
Although not yet officially confirmed by Disney, the OC Register spilled the beans on some of the upcoming ticket price increases coming to Disneyland Resort starting tomorrow.
So how much will visiting Disneyland Resort set you back?
- One-day, One-park Ticket: $99
- Kid's Ticket (9 and under): $93
- One-day Parkhopper: $155
- PREMIUM AP: $779 (No blockout dates)
- DELUXE AP: $549 (50 blockout dates)
- SO CAL SELECT AP: $299 (195 blockout dates)
However, this time AP holders have a whole new matter to contend with and it's going to be a hard pill to swallow as the parking add-on perk is being completely removed. Premium level-passes will continue to include parking.byPublished on 02-20-2015 07:00 PMCategories:
The Lunar New Year Celebration has returned this year celebrating the Year of the Sheep. The celebration has returned to the Paradise Garden area at Disney California Adventure. Returning again this year was the traditional arts and crafts and face painting, and the traditional Chinese Artist showcasing their talents.
Of course their was Mushu, Chip and Dale, Mickey and Minnie doing character meet n greets in traditional Chinese wardrobe. The Dragon Dancers returned and dazzled guests as well. The Mulan and Mushu processional also returned but was a lot bigger this year with each talent group given a couple of minutes to showcase their dancing or martial arts. This was a great addition to just Mulan and Mushu doing a couple of posses then leaving.
Overall, I love that Disney has continued utilizing this area to celebrate different cultures, and I hope they continue with it.
Hope you enjoy!
