Disneyland has really gone all out for the 60th Anniversary by adding bling to the entire park, adding a new shows and a parade, new celebratory foods and food containers and lots of 60th anniversary merchandise.
I grew up in Southern California so Disneyland was a way of life. I’ve been gone from California 8 years so it was very nostalgic going back. The oldies but goodies were there and lots of new things. It was so fun to see the Diamond Anniversary decorations mixed with the Halloween decorations.
My very favorite new thing at Disneyland was the Paint the Night Parade. It was so gorgeous. This parade is similar to the “Electrical Light Parade”, which is now at Walt Disney World and we were able to see it a few weeks ago when we were there, but more extreme with 1 million lights. I LOVE how the old music of the Electrical Light Parade is mixed into the new music of Paint the Night. It was so, so incredible!
Of course, in true Disney fashion the evening ended with an incredible fireworks show choreographed to scenes from your favorite Disney movies.It was a really fun show and a fun way to end the night.
I have heard the that Disneyland 60th Diamond Anniversary celebration will last through next December so there is still plenty of time to schedule your Disneyland vacation!
Stay tuned for posts about my interviews with the stars from Tomorrowland, my interview of Eric Goldberg – animator of the Genie from Aladdin and more posts from this trip!
