Disney California Adventure is importing “Mickey’s PhilharMagic” 
March 29, 2019          

"The 3-D movie is a musical-fantasy starring Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and other favorite Disney Characters. It currently plays in four other Disney theme parks around the world, DCA will be the fifth location. 

As the show starts, Donald Duck is preparing the orchestra for Mickey, but he just can’t resist taking up the conductor’s baton and Mickey’s Sorcerer Hat himself. Of course, things go downhill from there and Donald is plunged into a crazy dream world with the audience along for the ride."

New Pixar Pals Parking Structure and More Enhancements Underway at Disneyland Resort

"The new structure will be called Pixar Pals, featuring familiar friends from Disney•Pixar films such as “Coco,” “Monsters, Inc.” and “Inside Out”!

More than 5,000 parking spaces will be available within the structure. We anticipate it opening no later than the end of July, and hopefully sooner. The new structure will feature a new electronic parking system to expedite guest parking. 
In the next few months, the Toy Story parking lot also will be expanded with more than 2,000 additional parking spaces, and additional entrances. What’s more, we will be adding security-screening tents before guests board the Toy Story parking lot shuttles to eliminate screening in the esplanade outside the theme parks at peak times. "
