California’s Royal Summer
After the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (aka Will and Kate) announced their plans to visit to the Golden State this July, the California Travel and Tourism Commission declared the summer of 2011 to be “The Royal Summer.”
To give your California visit a dash of royal cachet and enjoy major savings, check out CityPASS’s California ticket collections:
Southern California CityPASS packs the crown jewels of the Golden State’s theme parks into one deeply discounted entrance pass. The pass includes a Disneyland Resort 3-Day Park Hopper Bonus Ticket (entrance to both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Park), as well as one-day admissions to SeaWorld San Diego, Universal Studios Hollywood, and either the San Diego Zoo or the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.
Home to myriad princesses — Sleeping Beauty, Tiana, Cinderella, Snow White, Jasmine and more — Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Park are well versed in all things royal. The latest princess to be granted her own attraction is Ariel, whose signature ride (The Little Mermaid — Ariel’s Undersea Adventure) debuted this summer. Nearby, Universal Studios Hollywood continues to celebrate last summer’s opening of King Kong 360 3-D, a multi-sensory experience that thrills riders with mind-blowing 3-D film footage and cutting-edge special effects. Also new in 2011 is SeaWorld San Diego’s killer whale show One Ocean, a magnificent tribute to the sea’s most regal residents.
