Pearls in the Park 2019

It’s that time again!

Pearls in the Park is scheduled for 2019 and it’s going to be our biggest party yet.

Follow me for everything you need to know about this event.

What is Pearls in the Park?

Pearls in the Park is a party that I throw with Get Away Today for Disney enthusiasts and readers of my site, It started in 2016 and has continued since with annual parties in the Spring and sometimes a Fall or Holiday option during the second half of the year.

Spring parties are big events, hosted on property at a Disneyland Resort location.

The purpose of these parties is to get people together for food, drinks, Disney and more. We have guests attend from all around the United States, Canada and Australia.

When and Where is the Party?

The Spring 2019 party will be held in the Brisa Courtyard at the Grand Californian Hotel.

The party will be held on May 3, 2019 from 7:00pm-9:00pm.

What Can I Expect at the Party?

You can expect food catered by Disney, a cash bar, professional photography, music, photo ops, goody bags and many fabulous prizes to giveaway. The video, above, shares photos from our most recent event on property. Take a look!

This event is run by Disney, so it’s top notch service. The ambiance at the Brisa Courtyard is lovely, as it’s the center stage at the Grand Californian Hotel with the monorail running above the party spot. It’s a beautiful location.

Worried about rain? Don’t fret. We have a back up location indoors if the weather doesn’t cooperate.

This year’s event with have a slight Star Wars theme since we are celebrating so much about the franchise during the year that Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens at Disneyland.

How Can I Buy a Party Ticket and Book a Hotel Room?

Tickets are $105 per person (adult or child age 3 and up). As always, Disney decides the age range for such events and there isn’t an option for child specific tickets. But, each child will be eligible to win giveaways and will leave with a goody bag just like adults.

Call 877.564.6428 to buy your ticket(s). Any client relations specialist can help you. It’s ideal if you call in to purchase, as it allows Get Away Today to gather info needed for the event (like names of guests, how many parties you have attended, etc). They can help you any time between 8:00am – 7:00pm MST.

What Else Do I Need to Know?

  • The Spring 2019 Pearls in the Park party is open to adults and children. Most people wear cocktail attire (dresses, pants, ties, etc), but there is no dress code. Wear what makes you comfortable!
  • While we won’t have a huge amount of entertainment specifically for children, we will have a table with kid-focused activities. My kids will be there, too. They are age 11, 12, and 17.
  • If you’re interested in a kid-free evening, Disneyland Resort Hotels can recommend a babysitting service to you.
  • The cost of parking is not included in the party ticket.
  • The cost of the party ticket does not include entrance to Disneyland or California Adventure. Along with information on discounted hotel rates, party ticket holders will be emailed information on discounted park tickets from Disney.
  • As we get closer to the party date, arrangements will be made for a meet-up in the parks so that we can take a group photo in front of the castle on a park day most PITP guests can attend. Also, plan on a character meal meet up, too. Maybe more!
  • Once you purchase a party ticket, you will be invited to a secret Facebook group for past and present PITP ticket holders. This is a great way to get to know everyone attending the next event so that you’re not walking into a crowd of strangers. We also discuss park meet ups on that page. Your invitation to join that page will be sent via email from Facebook. Occasionally, I learn from a guest that he or she didn’t receive one. Be sure to check your spam folder and/or Facebook settings to ensure your account will allow for such invitations. If you have any issues with this, email me at
  • Please use the hashtag #PearlsInThePark2019 when posting photos on social media, so we can all share in the fun!


Take a look at how Get Away Today can help with your vacation


  1. Hi Casey! Do you know if the hotel room deposit is refundable at all/up to a certain date? I’m really hoping I can make it to the DLR for this!! Thanks for all of your help, as always!

    • Hi, Sarah. I don’t know. I’m so sorry. I would call Get Away Today first thing Monday morning to check. Tickets are selling fast, so I don’t want you to miss out if you want to attend. Hope to see you there!

      • I had a similar concern about cancellation policy. Following the link sent by GAT after purchasing my ticket (squeee!!), Disney notes this during booking for Grand Californian: “We have a 5 day change and cancel policy at our Resort. If you need to cancel your reservation, please do so at least 5 days prior to your scheduled arrival. Should you cancel within 5 days of arrival, the deposit of one nights rate + tax is not refundable.”

        Hope that’s helpful!
