5 Best Friend Experiences for Disneyland Resort Annual Passholders This Summer


In honor of National Best Friends Day, we wanted to share the best experiences Disneyland Resort Annual Passholders can enjoy with their best friends. With Pixar Fest going on now, and Pixar Pier set to open in just two weeks, it’s truly the best time to grab your BFF and enjoy all-things Pixar at the Disneyland Resort!

Jump start your planning now because starting June 11 through September 3, Annual Passholders can bring a friend to the Disneyland Resort and save up to 40 percent off an adult 1-Day Park Hopper ticket.* Plus, So Cal Select, So Cal and Deluxe Passholders, we’re unblocking select dates in June**, giving you more time to celebrate friendship and beyond with your bestie! Starting June 11, tickets may be purchased at the Disneyland Resort main gate or Disney Desk locations at participating Good Neighbor Hotels. Tickets are valid only on day of purchase and only on days that the Passholder’s Passport is valid for admission.

Here are the top 5 things to do with your best friend!

1. Catch all the entertainment of Pixar Fest. The beloved stories of favorite Pixar friends can be found throughout Disneyland Resort! You and your pal can enjoy the super cute “Pixar Play Parade” at Disneyland park and the dazzling “Paint the Night” parade at Disney California Adventure park. Don’t forget to look up in the evening skies for the all-new “Together Forever – A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular,” also at Disneyland park.

3. Buddy up! Some favorite Pixar buddies are in Disney California Adventure park, ready to meet you and your best pal. Say cheese and get autographs from Buzz and Woody or Mike and Sully!
