Before the public grand opening, before the press event, and even before Disneyland annual passholder preview sweepstakes, Disney’s official fan club D23 and Disneyland are offering fans a chance to be among the first to step into Cars Land and Buena Vista Street and dine at the Carthay Circle Restaurant.

On June 9 & 10, 2012 at select times, separately-ticketed events are being offered, giving D23 members and Disneyland annual passholders the opportunity to spend a few hours wandering the newest additions to the Disney California Adventure theme park, which officially open on June 15.

The prices for these events range from $50 for 4 hours of freedom inside the new areas up to $500 for an after-hours dining experience that includes a first-ever three-course dinner inside the Carthay Circle Restaurant and a private viewing of World of Color.

The prices may seem steep considering all of these areas will be open to all ticket holders just a few days later, but in association with these events Disneyland Resort will be donating $500,000 to Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) and the Anaheim Community Foundation.

Tickets are available now for Disneyland annual passholders and will be available for D23 members at the D23 web site on May 18 at 10 a.m. PT.
