The lineup includes the Star Wars-themed transformation of Space Mountain into Hyperspace Mountain; new characters and a new adventure among the destinations at Star Tours – The Adventures Continue attraction, and an exciting short film, “Star Wars: Path of the Jedi,”which relives highlights of the Star Wars films. In addition, Star Wars Launch Bay invites guests to encounter that favorite Star Wars pilot Chewbacca, visit a Star Wars-themed cantina, discover authentic replicas of film props, and more.  And younglings will learn about conquering their fears in a new show, Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple.

At Super Hero HQ, also in Tomorrowland, guests will learn more about some of their favorite Super Heroes and even encounter Spider-Man and Thor, in person.

After dark in Disneyland, the 60th Anniversary Diamond Celebration comes to life with the dazzling “Paint the Night,” an all-new electrical parade, and the spectacular“Disneyland Forever” fireworks, an immersive street-to-sky experience like nothing seen before at the Disneyland Resort. The night skies light up in Disney California Adventure with the exciting “World of Color – Celebrate! The Wonderful World of Walt Disney,” a spectacular that combines water, light, color, lasers, animation, projections and nearly 1,200 dancing fountains.

In Cars Land at Disney California Adventure, Luigi’s Rollickin’ Roadsters will open in early 2016. On this fun, family attraction, guests will join the exciting festivities created by Luigi, a beloved character from the Disney•Pixar blockbuster “Cars” films. Luigi has invited all his cugini (cousins) from Carsoli, Italy, to visit Cars Land and demonstrate the traditional dances of their village. Park guests will hop aboard miniature Italian roadsters – in the style of micro cars — to enjoy the dance and the upbeat singing of Luigi and his cousins. The dance is precision-choreographed across what appears to be a trackless “dance floor.” Each car has its own routine, so guests will be able to enjoy different ride experiences depending on which car they board.

Beginning Jan. 6, 2016, Southern California residents will be able to experience all these attractions and entertainment, along with other beloved experiences at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure parks, with the special ticket offer.

  1. You should take a survey of families living in the park area and surrounding counties who have not ever been able to experience Disneyland because of the entry fee. You may be offering a “special” but you are still asking for $600 to just enter the park and that is steep for most working families.

        • Like countless other websites, when Disney releases a news item, we post it. This is an unofficial site that is not affiliated with the Walt Disney Company, so if you have concerns or questions, you should contact Disney directly through their website at

  2. Same here, I am a senior citizen with a limited income. I am shocked that the price is very steep for us and we will probably go on no rides or two at the most. It is a shame. Yes , I did send my concern to Disneyland several times. No response as usual.

  3. Do you have to use all the days consecutively?

    • It’s not completely clear from the verbiage on the site but tickets typically expire expire 13 days after first use.

      Keep in mind that tickets must be purchased between Jan. 6 through May 19, 2016 and the tickets expire (regardless of first use) after May 26, 2016. Also keep in mind that blockout dates DO apply!

      Lots of caveats, be sure to read up before you head to the parks!

  4. It is utterly ridiculous what the cost is to step foot in Disneyland, not to mention parking and food and drinks. It cost a family with 2 kids at least $500 for a day and that is cheap. Then you can’t even buy your child a souvenir without spending a small fortune. I say go to knots berry farm
