We were wondering how Disney would celebrate Disney California Adventure’s 20th anniversary. And, it turns out, they’re going all out in true Disney style and inviting guests BACK into the Disney Park in a new way.
Beginning March 18th, 2021, the park will reopen to guests for a ticketed event — A Touch of Disney! During the event, you’ll be able to reunite with some of your favorite Disney snacks like Dole Whip, churros, and even the Monte Cristo Sandwich. On top of that, there will be NEW merchandise, a NEW soundtrack, AND some opportunities to say hi to a few Disney characters you’ve missed! Before we get caught up in talking about all the food and dining, let’s talk about exactly WHO you can meet when you’re BACK at Disneyland.
You’ll be able to wave at Mickey Mouse and tell him about everything you’ve been up to over the past year…
…catch up with Lightning McQueen and Mater…
…and meet Joy and Sadness! We can’t help but giggle here…isn’t this EXACTLY how we’re going to feel at this ticketed event? JOYful to be back in the parks and then SADNESS when we have to leave? How fitting, Disney. At least these two will be there to empathize.
Disney World has reintroduced characters to the parks with opportunities to say hi from afar and we’re guessing that will be the approach that Disney California Adventure takes for the event. We’re keeping track of all the Disney event updates so stay tuned to DFB!
