Disneyland and California Adventure


Enter an enchanting village in the brand-new Fantasy Faire in Disneyland opening March 12, 2013. Be immersed in the magic of fairytales and then enjoy one of the two shows in the Royal Theatre. As you visit the rest of the park, be sure to hop on the newly refurbished Matterhorn Bobsleds and check out the new destinations on the Star Tours Starspeeders.  

 

At Disney's California Adventure, get your kicks on Route 66 in Cars Land and meet Lightning McQueen.

And watch for Sofia the First and Doc McStuffins who will be joining the Disney Junior-Live on Stage!
