Celebrate Leap Day with Unique Experiences at Disneyland Resort

At Disneyland park, you can board a rocket and orbit planets on Astro Orbitor – just like the earth does every day. This year, the earth needed an extra day to orbit the sun, which means that there is a bonus day in February! Join us on Feb. 29, 2020—leap day—at the Happiest Place on Earth!

In celebration, we asked our guests what they would do with one more day at the Disneyland Resort. From riding the Inredicoaster again and again to eating more delicious snacks, another day at Disneyland means more time to explore and experience new Disney adventures. Check out what our guests said below!

With a bonus day of magic in mind, we put together a list of 20 unique experiences for you to enjoy during your visit on leap day, or any day! 

  1. Board the Monorail for a roundtrip journey throughout Disneyland Resort

What would you do with one more day at the Disneyland Resort? Tell us in the comments below!


  • the list of 20 activities is not unique to leap day

  • You also forgot to mention viewing the brand new “Magic Happens” parade!

  • I’ll be celebrating at Disneyland! I’m hoping there are also “unique experiences” for this day specifically!

  • Frozen-Live at the Hyperion is not showing on Fridays and Saturdays. It cannot be done this leap year.

  • The title says “Celebrate Leap Day with Unique Experiences at Disneyland Resort”, but then you just listed general activities guests can do every day.

    Are there going to be actual “Unique Experiences” we can participate in, like seeing Long Lost Friends or other activities?
