Tickets go on sale 05/18/12.

Be among the first to experience how “The Happiest Place on Earth” just got happier! As a D23 Member, you and a guest have the opportunity to attend preview events on June 9 or June 10.

Our friends at Disneyland Resort have opened up a limited number of tickets for D23 Members to experience the re-imagined and expanded Disney California Adventure Park, including a preview of Cars Land and Buena Vista Street. While these extraordinary additions open on June 15 to the general public, D23 Members have the chance to attend one of two special days of previews on June 9 or 10. Each date offers three windows of time to experience Cars Land and Buena Vista Street (see sidebar for times). Plus D23 has obtained a very limited number of tickets to enjoy dinner during the evening experience at the Carthay Circle Restaurant.

Cars Land expands Disney California Adventure by 12 acres and immerses guests in the thrilling world of the Disney•Pixar blockbuster Cars. Guests will feel as if they have stepped into the town of Radiator Springs as they enjoy three family attractions showcasing characters and settings from the movie, plus Cars-themed dining and shopping locations such as Flo’s V8 Café, Ramone’s House of Body Art, and Radiator Springs Curios.

Starting June 15, guests will enter Disney California Adventure along Buena Vista Street, a place that transports them to an era when Walt Disney arrived with new dreams in California: 1920s Los Angeles. Buena Vista Street features Red Car Trolleys, inspired by the transportation system that once served Southern California, and the Carthay Circle Theatre, modeled after the site of the 1937 world premiere of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Dinner at Carthay Circle Restaurant includes a three-course meal featuring modern cuisine that pays tribute to the bold and diverse flavors of Southern California, and a special wine presentation.

To celebrate these previews and the grand reopening of Disney California Adventure, the Disneyland Resort is spreading the happiness by donating a total of $500,000 to Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) and the Anaheim Community Foundation.

I think it will sell out VERY QUICKLY.

It's nice that it's a fundraiser. Makes guests feel a little better about spending the money.

too bad I'm leaving the morning of the 9th.

I leep hoping for a soft opening preview on the 5th-8th (during my trip). But with the Annual Pass preview, the D23 preview, the Team Disney-Burbank preview party, the Team-Disney-Glendale preview party, the Pixar preview party all happening those dates, I can't imagine there are going to be any geneal admission guest allowed behind the construction wall.

Maybe I'll luck out with a Matterhorn soft opening?

Thank you for the link Tom. :thumbsup2 At least there is another chance of seeing CL & BVS early before the AP sneak peek or opening week.

Same here. As APs, it would be really nice for my wife and I to get some kind of sneak peek before we have to leave the 9th.

It appears as if this offer is good for Annual Passholders also (and tickets are available NOW).

I know! I am thinking early morning might be less crowded, but I really want to see Cars Land at night with all the neon! Decisions, decisions!

Wow, thats a sweet deal! Just $50 to check out CL and BVS (and you still get the full day at DCA regardless) and its all going to charity too, thats a sweet deal!

I have a feeling it will go fast even the $500 tickets!

But that also mean they only have about 3 weeks left to complete BVS as well and I wonder if they will do it? From the 9th on, these areas will be open daily basically until the 15th! I suspect they can work on it at night of course but it looks like its going to be close to get it ready in time.

Are any of the podcasters going? I haven't listened to this week's podcast yet so maybe you guys already talked about it. I like that it is a fundraiser too, very cool.

I doubt you are asking me, but I just thought I'd chime in that I don't get it. It's $50 to see something that an AP let's you see anyway. But, I'm clearly alone in my thinking...

Just an FYI: it is not a fundraiser... Disney is donating $500,000.00 no matter what - it doesn't say the proceeds will go to CHOC. Your entry fee ($50) is not tax deductible...

I think it's a fine deal - just don't want people to think the money they spend that day goes to CHOC

I am totally confused... How does having an AP let you see CL early? Did I miss something? We are AP holders and would love to go since we live here, but I haven't seen anything about us getting to see it early.

There is the "lottery" drawing for AP holders presently going on that gives you a chance to get into Cars Land on the 11th.

Did anyone else notice this part in the AP info?

Annual Passholders may purchase up to 8 tickets. All members of your party must be present and show a Disneyland Resort Annual Passport valid as of the date of the event for which the ticket was purchased — either June 9 or June 10, 2012. Event admission includes a 1-Day 1-Park Ticket to Disney California Adventure Park for the entire day.

The fine print says...

• Event admission includes:
• 1-Day 1-Park Ticket valid only on day of event to Disney California Adventure Park
• Cars Land and Buena Vista Street preview
• A private performance of World of Color

I added the bold and italics ;)

We have Premier passes, so I know we're not blocked out. Does that mean we'll get a ticket and be able to give it to someone else, as long as they're going to DCA that day? I know they won't be able to get into Cars Land, but if we really get a ticket I might invite some non-passholder friends to hang out that day...

Or is it just to cover blocked APs? The D23 page clearly states that admission is NOT included with their entry and is required.

It just seems a little too good to be true the way I'm reading the AP site...

You will not receive a ticket to DCA if you have a valid Annual Passport on that day.
