PHOTOS: Lamplight Lounge Reopens for “A Touch of Disney” Event at Disney California Adventure; Collectable Coins Available

Disney California Adventure reopened today for the “A Touch of Disney” ticketed event. We were eager to visit a dining location that we have missed over the last year: Lamplight Lounge in Pixar Pier. In addition to food, the table service restaurant is offering collectable coins during “A Touch of Disney”.

The coins are available in sets of two for $8.99 plus tax. Guests may purchase up to five sets. The collectable coins are available while supplies last, and the “A Touch of Disney” Dining Card cannot be used to purchase the coins.

The coins come in a soft drawstring pouch.

Before entering Lamplight Lounge, we could see that its lower outdoor seating area is closed. We checked in at our reservation time. It was an additional 20 minutes before we were notified that our table was ready.

The paper menu has a sketch of Imagination Land from Inside Out. The paper coaster features Russel, Carl Fredricksen, Kevin, and Dug from Up! on one side. Luxo Jr and the Pixar ball appear on the reverse.
