Thank you so much to Disney for inviting me to the 60th Anniversary Celebration Announcement.
This year is going to be a really special one at Disneyland with the 60th Anniversary Diamond Celebration Starting May 22nd!
Here is just the beginning of what Disney has in store for this year!
“World of Color” is about to become even more amazing with a special edition just for the Diamond celebration!
Straight from Disney… “World of Color – Celebrate! The Wonderful World of Walt Disney” illuminates the night in a contemporary and moving celebration of Walt and his dream of Disneyland, showing that anything is possible if we never give up on our dreams.
Mickey Mouse will take guests on a fun-filled and inspirational journey through the unparalleled imagination of Walt Disney, exploring his decades-long legacy of memorable animated moments and the dream of Disneyland park.
Both epic and intimate in scope, “World of Color – Celebrate! The Wonderful World of Walt Disney” brings to life the remarkable story of Walt and the Happiest Place on Earth in a first-of-its-kind spectacular, presented on the magic canvas of “World of Color” with compelling animated imagery, live-action footage, fountains, lasers, special effects and a stirring musical score..
We love watching “World of Color” and are huge Disney history fans so this is going to be epic!
Those of us who grew up going to Disneyland will remember the much loved Main Street Electrical Parade.
The sound of the music and the lights were the highlight of our Disney days… it is the inspiration for the all new “Paint the Night” Diamond Celebration parade! When this was announced the crowd went wind!
Straight from Disney… The “Paint the Night” parade brings some of the most innovative floats, vibrant costumes, dazzling special effects, unforgettable music and energetic performances ever presented at Disneyland Resort. This new, state-of-the-art nighttime parade floods Main Street, U.S.A., with stunning color, fun surprises and more than 1.5 million brilliant LED lights. Mickey Mouse uses his vivid imagination to harness the power of Tinker Bell’s pixie dust and “Paint the Night” in Disney dreams, bringing to light beloved characters and stories from “Monsters, Inc.,” “Cars,” “The Little Mermaid,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Toy Story,” “Frozen” and more.
As if that wasn’t all exciting enough… the all new “Disneyland Forever” fireworks show is more of an experience than a single show!
Straight from Disney… “Disneyland Forever” shows just how magical the Magic Kingdom can be, in a sky-high celebration featuring sparkling pyrotechnics, immersive projections, and other effects that transform Disneyland park right before your eyes!
“Disneyland Forever” envelops you in an enthralling, breathtaking journey like never before, leveraging the largest installation of projection mapping technology in a Disney park and surprising special effects. Main Street, U.S.A., and several other Disneyland park locations become a magical canvas taking us into a world of dreams, from flying above the London skyline from “Peter Pan” to a dance with King Louie in “The Jungle Book.”
“Disneyland Forever” also features two original songs, the theme “Live the Magic” and the inspiring closing song “Kiss Goodnight,” written by Disney Legend Richard Sherman.
Walt Disney once said, “Disneyland will never be completed, as long as there is imagination left in the world.” As “Disneyland Forever” caps off each evening of this once-in-a-lifetime celebration, we discover Walt’s inspiring words still hold true today. Disneyland will continue to be home to all our dreams and adventures … forever!
Here is a preview of Disneyland Forever!
This is going to be so great! I love Disney, and I can’t wait to see this.
This looks amazing! I can’t wait for the day we can head down to Disney! I haven’t ever been and I feel like the only person ever!
These celebrations are so exciting! I would love to see it in person.
All of those celebrations sound so excited! I have never been to Disney before, so something like this would be amazing to see! I love all things Disney even though I’ve never actually gone. 🙂
Wow! I can’t believe it has been 60 years already! This is definitely they year to go to Disney! I really hope that I can save enough to pull it off!
I am so jealous of the west coast…I want to see that castle covered in diamonds! I haven’t been to DL yet, it is on my bucket list- I am 2 hours from WDW though and go often.
Disney just keeps upping their game! This is going to be a fabulous addition to Disneyland!
Wow 60 years! We are huge Disney fans one of the perks of living only a few hours away from Disney World.
60 Years? That is so incredible! Disney has brought so many fun memories with my family. But we have yet to go to Disney World. Because we’re from California we frequent Disneyland more. 🙂
What a great event this seemed to be! Congrats on getting a chance to experience it. 🙂
Wow, it’s been 60 years already? This year would be the best year ever to go to Disneyland!

I love Disney shows. I cannot wait to see this one with my daugher
Oh how fun! I used to visit Disneyland every summer when I was younger, I have a lot of great memories from there.
I haven’t been to Disney since I was really small. My son is six and we hope to take him when he is a smidgen older…and we are richer. Damn place is way too expensive for my liking!!
That would such an amazing trip and adventure. I would to take the kids to this.
This looks like it is going to be a blast. I think we’ll be making our very first trip later on this summer!
I love that his plan for Disneyland was so open-minded/ended. That’s how room for growth and improvement comes along, and you see how that turned out. 🙂 Everyone loves Disney.
I’ve only been to Disney World but I loved it! From what I remember at least haha I was about 7 and actually got lost there for about an hour. Even with that happening I still loved it! I’ve always wanted to go to Disneyland though!
Sounds like it will be a wonderful celebration! I love Disney!
I have not been to Disneyland since i was a kid. It is such a great place to go on vacation. I will have to plan a trip and take my kids.
Wow 60 years. I bet it will be amazing to see.
Wow – this sounds completely awesome. Disney fireworks are one of a kind – they’re actually my favorite thing about the entire experience.
I’ve always thought of Disney as a magical land. I can’t wait to take my son there one day! Would be amazing to be able to view the Diamond Celebration!
I have never been to Disneyland, but it’s definitely on my forever growing list of places to visit! This sounds like a fun event, too.
This looks wonderful. We are in the NYC area and usually go to WDW, but last April we went to Disneyland for the first time as a family for Disney SMMoms! It was wonderful. I never wanted to leave.
