Disneyland will be hosting a Annual Passholder event in May to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Fantasmic! Disneyland began hosting these AP events again last year with a Holiday event and a Mickey’s Soundsational Parade event.
Invites began to appear randomly in Annual Passholder’s email inboxes this morning with event details and RSVP instructions. The Fantasmic! event will be held after park closing at Disneyland on the evenings of May 14, 15, 21 and 22nd and include a special showing of Fantasmic! at 11:30 p.m. Select attractions, shops and restaurants in Adventureland, Fronteirland and New Orleans Square will also be available until 1:00 a.m. Special menu items will also be available to event guests from 4pm – 1am. Annual Passholders are asked to RSVP in person (you must be 18 years old to register) at one of the Disneyland Resort ticket booths; you can also RSVP for an additional 3 annual passholders. Registration for the event will close at 10 p.m. on Thursday, May 10, 2012 or as soon as capacity is reached.
Guest check-in on the day of the event will be available at any open main entrance ticket booth starting at 12 pm. You and your party will receive a wristband prior to entering the park; your entire party must check in together to receive wrist bands. You will still need your valid annual passport to enter the park. Event check-in will remain open until 12:30am to accommodate late arrivals.
