The Disneyland Resort is always providing guests with exciting ways to experience the magic of Disney. This summer has certainly been no exception. From a spectacular stage show to an illuminating fireworks spectacular, this is your last chance to experience these five, limited-time offerings at the Disneyland Resort:
If you have ever wanted to see all of the amazing sights California has to offer, now is your final chance to do so at Disney California Adventure park. Soarin’ Over California takes you on a flight to enjoy a bird’s-eye view over the Golden State — from San Francisco’s iconic Golden Gate Bridge to the crashing waves in Malibu. This memorable journey will be grounded on Aug. 31.
The street-to-sky celebration features sparkling pyrotechnics, immersive projections and other effects that transform Disneyland park into a magical canvas. You will literally be surrounded by timeless Disney stories — from soaring over London with Peter Pan one moment, to journeying across Simba’s Pride Lands the next. Disney magic stays with you forever, but this nighttime spectacular comes to an end on Sept. 2.
This stage show celebrates the characters and music of Disney’s “The Lion King” in an imaginative and unique way. The Storytellers of the Pride Lands retells the tale through language, song and dance. Enjoy new musical arrangements of favorite songs, accompanied by live drumming and singing, along with the set and costumes which celebrates the cultural roots of this beloved story. Stampede on over to Disney California Adventure before Sept. 2.
Enjoy a unique, pop-up experience at Downtown Disney District celebrating the legendary mouse that started it all! You’re invited to step inside nine different imaginatively themed rooms where multi-dimensional art and vibrant, visual displays salute Mickey Mouse — from his classic beginnings as a cartoon to Mickey-inspired treats. Tickets for the experience must be purchased online, in advance. Pop in before Sept. 2 while you still can!
This beloved parade just returned to Disneyland park and is once again bringing light to your life. The iconic “Main Street Electrical Parade” radiates a sense of wonder, joy and – for some – warm nostalgia. This spectacular pageant of nighttime magic and imagination with half-million sparkling lights and “electro-syntho-magnetic musical sounds” travels down Main Street, U.S.A. nightly. Come and witness this piece of Disneyland history before it “glows” away on Sept. 30.
When you visit the Disneyland Resort to soak up the last of this limited-time magic, be sure to check out other magical experiences—from traveling to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland park to enjoying Pixar Pier in Disney California Adventure park.
