Even before Annual Passholders who were selected get to experience the all new Cars Land and Buena Vista Street districts at Disney California Adventure at the Disneyland Resort on June 11, Disney D23 members are invited to experience ‘The Happiest place on Earth’ ‘becoming happier.’
On June 9 and 10, Disney D23 will hold previews for its members and their guests of the new areas. In addition to being able to explore the re-imagined and expanded Disney California Adventure Park during specified time windows, some packages will even include dinner at the Carthay Circle Restaurant. The dinner at Carthay Circle Restaurant includes a three-course meal featuring modern cuisine that pays tribute to the bold and diverse flavors of Southern California, and a special wine presentation from Lasseter Family Winery. In addition, the dinner includes an extra hour for previews, the private World of Color showing, priority loading at Radiator Springs Racers and complimentary valet parking.
To celebrate these previews and the grand reopening of Disney California Adventure, the Disneyland Resort is spreading the happiness by donating a total of $500,000 to Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) and the Anaheim Community Foundation.
Tickets are $50 – $500 depending on the chosen packages and will be available on May 18 at 1 pm ET. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit the official event page.
UPDATE #1: 5/25/12 -Disney D23 has provided additional details as to what will be included in the Carthay Circle Dinner package.
