Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, has been holding its magic inside for nearly a year since it closed in March thanks to the coronavirus pandemic.
But Disney theme park lovers are about to have the chance to get a glimpse inside Disney California Adventure Park with “A Touch of Disney,” a ticketed, limited-capacity experience that will begin on March 18 and run on select days through April 5.
“A Touch of Disney” will give visitors a literal taste of Disneyland with access to “world-famous food and beverages from around the resort, plus a chance to see Disney characters, shop for the latest Disney merchandise and pose at unique photo locations,” according to a post on the Disney Parks Blog.
While guests can fill their bellies; shop until they drop at select locations, including some on Buena Vista Street; and wave to Mickey and friends from a distance, attractions will remain closed.

Tickets will be released on a rolling basis, starting March 4 for $75 a pop, including admission, parking and unlimited downloads of Disney PhotoPass photos taken while in the park. Each pass comes with a $25 “A Touch of Disney” dining card that can be used toward food and nonalcoholic beverages. Ticket prices, Disney said, are subject to change.
“A Touch of Disney” will be operating with enhanced health and safety guidelines including temperature checks and face covering requirements, according to the blog.
Disneyland did not specify what was not specific “limited capacity” will mean.
