AP Days are back at the Disneyland Resort, and for the winter go around, the theme celebrates the return of the Main Street Electrical Parade. I had the chance to check out some of the offerings of AP Days this week, but I will have another post coming soon to cover some of the awesomeness I didn’t get to try (namely, the food!). This incarnation of AP Days runs until March 9, and will feature a new button every week. In addition to the buttons, there are also recipe cards, kids activity sheets, and a trivia pamphlet to collect. There’s also a couple of fun things happening around Disneyland just for APs. Here’s a quick tour of what I have been able to check out so far:
The AP Welcome Center is located in Tomorrowland. Depending on how busy the Welcome Center is, you might have to wait in a short line. Look for this sign and cast members to direct you where to line up.
The entrance to the Welcome Center is at the Starcade (which has been closed forever now, it’s nice to see it open and being put to use!). The button distribution table is right outside, under the Starcade sign, which is nice. It means you don’t have to wait in line to go inside if you just want to collect your button and go. As with previous AP Days, strollers are not allowed inside, which is a bummer, but understandable since space is tight.
This map is located inside the Welcome Center. I snapped a pic so I know where to go next time when I go back for the specialty food items. The restaurants listed are also where you can go to get your recipe cards.
Inside the Starcade is where you can find character greetings, the AP lounge, and artist signing events. I didn’t actually go in the lounge, but it looked like a nice place to kick back in the AC for a few minutes (or out of the rain for a few minutes, depending on the day).
The kiddos have their own area inside where they can color parade flags and even put together their own set of parade cards.
There is one super cute photo op inside with the iconic parade drum. Squirt is not a fan of looking into the camera, as you can tell.
Also inside the Welcome Center is a merchandise location (pretty sure I will be buying the shirt they have available, look for that in part two). I’ll be heading back to AP Days at least once a week to make sure I can collect all of my buttons so keep an eye out for part two, and also make sure you are following me on Instagram to see all the latest happs!
