Big news coming out of the Rabbit Hole today … Mad T Party is returning to Disney California Adventure park! When the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration begins May 22, Mad T Party will makes its return – and this time, it will be a new, dazzling experience, marking the 60th anniversary of the Disneyland Resort in its own splendiferous way.


Mad T Party joins other sparkling nighttime entertainment coming as part of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration, including “Paint the Night” parade, “Disneyland Forever” fireworks and “World of Color – Celebrate!” Keep up with the latest news on the celebration here on the Disney Parks Blog, and join the conversation with the hashtag #Disneyland60.

We’ll see you when the Rabbit Hole opens once again on May 22!


  • So Excited to see they are back! I really hope they are still there in December when we visit next.

  • I and my sister are ELATED that this is coming back. Disappointed in the new Frozen event. Mad T was our most visited location as we are very frequent fliers at both parks! Cannot wait for this to be back!!!

  • So excited to have the Mad T Party come back!!!! Best news ever..

  • I am soooooo excited about this one !

  • JEFFREY– I agree. I would like to know as well. I thought that Freeze the Night was a fun replacement to go along with the Frozen Fun event and all. I would have preferred something new instead of Mad T Party again, but oh well. There is still the 60th anniversary attractions to look forward to. 🙂

  • Very good news. Will Tweetle Dee and Tweetle Dumb be back too?

  • WooooHooooo!!! This is the greatest news! We love the Mad T Party band. Thank you Disney execs for listening to our plea to bring back the T! This is the coolest attraction at Disneyland and we hope it never gets taken down again… Don’t forget Hands Down Dance Team, the white rabbit DJ and the aerialists! I’m counting the days till May 22nd!

  • Thank you thank you thank you Disney for listening to the fans and bringing back the Mad T Party! Many of our friends bought annual passes just so they could come see the Mad T Party band. We love the band the dancers the DJ the aerialists – everything. It was a surrealistic. We were all heartsick when it got shut down, and overjoyed to see the news that it’s coming back. For us this is the best attraction at Disneyland and I pray that you’ll keep it going forever!

  • Now if there was only a way to get Maelstrom back. Loved Frozen the movie but I think we are all OK with less of it in the parks.

  • YAY!!! I’m so happy Mad T Party is coming back!!! Looking forward to the “sparkly” additions. Shawn Slater, thank you for sharing such great news! Most of all thank you, Disney Execs, for bringing Mad T Party back.

  • I wanted to see something new, or ElecTRONica brought back. I didn’t realize so much people enjoyed Mad T Party.

  • Yes! Yes! Yes!

  • Thank you Disney! I’m so happy to hear that Mad T is returning. This is such a unique and energetic show that really showcases your talented performers. I love the arrangements of the music, the theming and the whole look and vibe of Mad T. The only problem for me will be that I’ll probably have to renew my annual pass now – I wasn’t planning on doing that! 😉

  • To bad to see Freeze the night go I like it better then Mad T Party. I know Freeze the night was for a short time but I’m a big Frozen fan and will miss it. At less I know that Elsa & Anna will still be over at DCA side. One thing I want to know is Olaf. I know his stuff ends in April but will he still do meet and greet with Elsa & Anna or will he be a long lost friend or only come out during winter times only?

  • Great News! It’s T time, can’t wait til May 22

  • BEST NEWS!!! I saw the update on Disneyland Live and I went directly to the site. I was always a fan but didn’t how much of a fan till it left. So happy to know it’s coming back. Thanks Disney.

  • I love the idea of “sparkly muchness!” Hope it will still be there in October with a Halloween twist maybe 🙂

  • I am so excited! Now I can bring my friends who missed out seeing them the first time. They have seen the videos and now they can see it for themselves. Thanks Disney for listening to the “T” family.

  • Oh frabjous day! Calloo, callay! This is the best news I’ve heard all winter, thank you!

  • Thank you Disney!!!!! We are super excited to see how amazing
    the 60th celebration T Party will be.

  • WE FIGHT FOR THE USERS! Long live Flynn. Long live the Grid. LONG LIVE ElecTRONica!!!

  • Long live ElecTRONica!

  • Hooray!!!!! I was super-disappointed when I learned that Mad T Party was going away and being replaced by Frozen – we had SO MUCH fun in 2012. Now I’m glad it’s coming back for our trip to DL for the 60th and we get to experience it again in October!

  • Will it keep its name or will it be something new, like Diamond T Party?

    • Christopher – It will still be Mad T Party, but with added sparkly muchness to celebrate Disneyland’s 60th!

  • I really miss Tron.

  • Very happy about this news!!!

  • Best news ever!!! I can’t wait to see this awesome band again!! Thank you Disney!!!

  • The Mad T Party never really appealed to me. It just wasn’t my thing, but I’m glad that people are happy.

  • Best news I’ve ever heard! Literally jumping up and down! Thank you so much Disney for listening to the fans and bringing something back that truly made evenings at Disneyland Resort so magical! I can’t wait to spend every weekend at DCA!

  • Does that mean Muppet Vision 3d is returning as well? Please let that come back!!!!

  • Yes! I LOVE the Mad T Party!

  • Very excited to see Freeze the Night leave. Hopefully the Animation Academy will switch back soon as well 🙂

    And MadT is awesome and very energetic 🙂

  • 1. How long will Mad T Party be back for?

    2. Will it be available during the whole 60th anniversary?

    3. Will you be rotating between both Mad T Party and Frozen Fun?

    a. During the Summer/ Halloween time do Mad T Party. Then come the Holiday’s until Spring do the Frozen Fun again.

    • Brandon – “Frozen Fun” was only planned to continue through mid-May. Mad T Party will be celebrating #Disneyland 60 throughout the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration.

  • Yea!!! Just in time for my birthday too. Thanks for the birthday present Disney! Visiting California Adventure just wasn’t the same without the live band to enjoy in the evening.

    • Happy Birthday, Jason!

      And a very merry Unbirthday to everyone else out there in Wonderland!

  • This is the best news I have ever and probably will ever have read on this blog. I can’t wait to start T Partying every week again! I hope T is here to stay for a long while because after 2.5 years I’m not even close to being done with it yet! Thank you for the best news ever!!!

  • So happy to see that you guys listen to the fans! Excited for the revival!

  • This is the best news that I have heard in the past month! Thank you Disney to listening to the fans and bringing Mad T Party back….I’m so excited to be there on the 22nd! Thanks for making me smile like a Chesire Cat!

  • Thank you so much for this exciting news!! I’m glad it’s coming back. Such a great show with so much talent. Greatly looking forward to all the entertainment for the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration.

    • It’s going to be a great party. That’s for sure!

  • Oh my goodness!! The best Fri 13th present EVER!!! Thank you Disney for listening to our cries. This truly is a unique experience that brings friends and family together and has been dearly missed.

  • I’m so happy I’m crying right now!

    Thank you Disney for listening to the T fans!!!

  • While admittedly, it’s too loud for me (perhaps there could be one “Quiet” set per night where the volume is turned down for those of us that are sensitive to the loud noise?), I am excited that there will be a little less Frozen in the parks.

  • Yay!!! MadTParty was the reason I renewed my Annual Pass! Thank you Disneyland!

    • 🙂

  • I know a lot of people will be happy, personally I was hoping for something entirely new like… AVENGERS

  • This is seriously the BEST news!! I’m so glad Disney is listening to their guests!

  • Yesss! So excited!
