This hard-ticketed experience will put 1,000 people back at work.
It goes without saying that Disney fans have been starved of their favorite source of entertainment as “The Happiest Place On Earth” has remained shut since the beginning of the pandemic. Those itching to experience the magic of the vicinity once again will be delighted to know that park officials have just announced an exciting food and entertainment experience happening in mid-march.
Disneyland Resort President Ken Petrock made the announcement in an email to cast members commemorating the park’s 20th anniversary of California Adventure, according to Theme Park Insider. No exact dates or details were mentioned, other than a carefully vetted food, entertainment and retail event would be coming sometime in March with enhanced health and safety protocols in place.
“Currently planned to begin mid-March, we will debut an all-new, limited-time ticketed experience, focused on our world-famous food and beverage offerings from around the resort, the latest merchandise and unique, carefully crafted entertainment experiences…all to be offered multiple days a week,” Potrock’s email stated. “With limited capacity and enhanced health and safety measures in place, Guests once again will get to step into a magical Disney environment – an environment that will provide memorable and fun experiences our Guests are craving.”
Meanwhile, the resort has been focused on reopening Downtown Disney following the loosening of state restrictions, giving 350 furloughed Disney staffers the chance to return to work. This festival-like first is expected to put 1,000 employees back in action which comes as a huge relief following the wave of job cuts over the last year.
Although we can only speculate whether Dole Whips will make the cut as part of their “world-famous food and beverage offerings,” we know there definitely won’t be any attractions or rides opening any time soon due to California’s tiered reopening plan.
