Later this year, things will get a little more festive at Disneyland in California as the resort celebrates 60 years of providing timeless memories for literally hundreds of millions of visitors.
Starting on May 22, 2015, guests will be treated to the debut of three night-time spectaculars including a new version of the popular “World of Color” show at Disney’s California Adventure. Over at Disneyland, look for the amazing “Paint the Night” parade to be shown along with an impressive “Disneyland Forever” fireworks spectacular.
“At Disneyland park, the new “Paint the Night” parade will bring some of the most innovative floats, vibrant costumes, dazzling special effects, unforgettable music and energetic performances ever presented at the Disneyland Resort,” describes a post on the Disney Parks Blog. “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.”
“Also at Disneyland park, the new “Disneyland Forever” fireworks spectacular will be 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. The new show will feature two original songs, the theme “Live the Magic” and the inspiring closing song “Kiss Goodnight,” written by Disney Legend Richard Sherman.”
Diamond medallions featuring the letter “D” will be added to Sleeping Beauty Castle in Disneyland and Carthay Circle Theater in California Adventure to signify the Diamond Jubilee of Disneyland.
In addition, Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration décor and festive banners will be seen throughout the resort in the identifiable Disneyland blue color.
As an FYI, the Disneyland Resort itself opened on July 17, 1955.
