The next round of Disneyland AP Appreciation parties is here and they’re scheduled for April 27 and August 31!
If you’re an AP holder and your pass expiration is between May 24, 2015 and September 12, 2015 then you are eligible to register for one of the two events, oddly scheduled months apart. The first is sooner and only taking part in the West Side of the Park while the other is the full park and tasks place after the 60th Anniversary celebration kicks off.
While the full-park celebration seems like a more logical choice, Disney history buffs may be intrigued by the April 27th event which will offer a “Dixieland feel” promising live musical acts and special entertainment throughout the West Side of the park.
Full announcement below.
Celebrate A Magical Year!
You’re Invited to a Special Celebration! Enjoy an after-hours celebration of music, magic and special events to honor your Passholder Anniversary.
In honor of your upcoming Passholder Anniversary, we’re throwing a party—and you’re invited, along with up to 5 of your Passholder friends! Top off a year of magical memories with a starlit night of fun and entertainment at Disneyland Resort! With Disneyland Diamond Celebration starting in May 2015 and so many exciting things to do at the park this summer, event space is tight. To ensure that more invitees can participate, we’ve added a second night. Passholders can choose between 2 spectacular evenings.
- April 27, 2015: Enjoy a Dixieland feel with live musical acts and special entertainment throughout the Westside of Disneyland—a nod to Disney days gone by. Attractions throughout Adventureland, New Orleans Square, Critter Country, and Frontierland include Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Mark Twain Riverboat, Splash Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, Haunted Mansion, Jungle Cruise and The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.
- August 31, 2015: Celebrate your anniversary in this full-park party at Disneyland Park. Details and special offerings will be announced closer to the event night.
Please note that a valid pass is required to attend either event.
Relax, dance and mingle with friends and Disney Characters during these fun-filled evening events. Both nights will feature select attractions, dining and merchandise locations—plus a variety of special offerings, surprises and experiences. And Disney PhotoPass Service will be there to help capture every moment.
Only Passholders whose passes will expire between May 24, 2015 and September 12, 2015 can sign up for this event. If your renewal eligibility falls outside of these dates, your event happens at another time during the year. To find out your eligibility and view important details about your Annual Passport, simply sign in or create an account on disneyland.com.
