Disney California Adventure ‘A Touch of Disney’ Event Details Released!

UPDATE 3/4/21: Disney has announced that, due to popular demand, two more weeks have been added to A Touch of Disney! The hard ticket event will now last through April 19th.

The details for the hard ticket event that will come to Disney California Adventure in March have just been released, and if you’ve been missing some of the most classic Disneyland treats and your lovable Disney friends, you’re in luck.

A Touch of Disney will begin on March 18th, 2021 and tickets will cost $75. Tickets will include admission, parking in the Mickey and Friends parking structure, unlimited Disney PhotoPass downloads, and a $25 A Touch of Disney dining card valid toward the purchase of non-alcoholic beverages, as well as food. The event will run on select days from March 18th through April 5th.

Tickets for A Touch of Disney will be available on Disneyland.com beginning March 4th. Tickets for this event will then be released for dates on a rolling basis until the event ends. Tickets must be purchased in advance for a specific date, and are subject to availability.

Table reservations for Carthay Circle Lounge – Alfresco Dining and Lamplight Lounge can be made beginning March 11th. A note: a dining reservation does not provide admission to the event.

Some of the most iconic beverages and food items from both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure will be available for guests during the event, including Dole whip, Blue Bayou’s Monte Cristo sandwich, and churros. The bites will be snack-sized versions of the originals, and will be available for purchase throughout Disney California Adventure. Additional details regarding these food and beverage items are available in the Foodie Guide for the event.

Select merchandise locations will be open throughout the park, including Bing Bing’s Sweet Stuff at Pixar Pier.

Guests at A Touch of Disney will be able to take physically distanced selfies with Lightning McQueen and Mater in Cars Land, as well as Joy and Sadness at Pixar Pier. Mickey and his friends will make surprise appearances throughout the park.

It’s worth noting that Buena Vista Street will cease from being available to day guests as an extension of Downtown Disney beginning March 15th, as the area will begin being used for A Touch of Disney.

Safety measures such as mask wearing for all guests ages two and older, required temperature checks, and physical distancing will be adhered to during the event.
