  • My friend and I would like to attend the Disney Channel Fanfest May 9th please thank you!

  • Is fan fest going to be at both parks( Disneyland and CA Adventure) this year? I am confused because are events going to be at both parks? Does my family need a park hopper? Is there a schedule?

  • Anyone from Disney Descendants will be present at this year’s Disney Fan Fest?

  • Is there a specific schedule for cast appearances taking place each weekend? If so, where could I find it. This would be very helpful schedule-wise. Thanks!
