There is a rumor that Disney California Adventure is going to have a special, limited-time, ticketed event in March. The rumor comes from WDWNT and it obtained from a copy of a letter that Disneyland President, Ken Potrock, sent to Cast Members.
Of course nothing is confirmed but the letter indicates that they plan on having this event starting in mid-March. It will focus on food, merchandise and entertainment, so it doesn’t sound like they will be reopening the theme park attractions, just adding to what they can do.
Here’s the quote from the letter:
“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. 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.”
Potrock indicated that this will bring about 1,000 Cast Members back to work!
“What I’m most thrilled about is that this initiative — along with the recent reopening of our outdoor dining on Buena Vista Street — enables us to bring about 1,000 Cast Members back to work. While that is clearly not all we want to accomplish, it’s a start. Teams are working as we speak to start recalling identified Cast in the coming weeks. “
Even if they rides won’t be back, I’m very happy to hear that the Cast Members will be getting called back in. Now that the Annual Passholder program is gone, this will be costing people outright to attend.

Of course this hasn’t been confirmed by Disney yet, it sounds like it will be soon.
