While everyone is having fun at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, Disneyland Resort guests in California can enjoy their own 24-hour event.
Their big party will begin at 6:00 a.m. on Friday, May 22, and will finish at 6:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 23. The event will include dancing and special character encounters at locations in Disneyland and Disney California Adventure parks, along with enchanting Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration décor throughout the resort and the shows and attractions that guests love.
In information from Disney Parks Blog, take a look at what is coming when the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration begins May 22:
“Paint the Night” Parade – After dark, along the Disneyland park parade route, 24-hour event guests will be among the first to see the new “Paint the Night” parade, showcasing beloved Disney characters in dazzling parade scenes illuminated with more than 1.5 million individually controlled lights – the first all-LED parade in Disneyland Resort history.
“Disneyland Forever” Fireworks – Disneyland park itself plays a starring role in the “Disneyland Forever” fireworks spectacular, also premiering during the 24-hour event. Breathtaking fireworks shows have long been a Disneyland Resort tradition and “Disneyland Forever” soars to new levels, immersing guests from the tips of their toes to the brilliant pyrotechnic bursts above, thanks to special effects that turn the storefronts of Main Street, U.S.A., the Matterhorn and the facade of “it’s a small world” into gigantic projection screens filled with color, characters and surprises.
“World of Color – Celebrate! The Wonderful World of Walt Disney” – Award-winning actor Neil Patrick Harris and Mickey Mouse will be the hosts of the all-new “World of Color” show, premiering May 22 during the 24-hour event. “World of Color – Celebrate!” illuminates the night in a fun-filled and inspirational journey exploring Walt Disney’s decades-long legacy of memorable animated moments and his dream of Disneyland park.
So, mark your calendars, and get your planning done to have fun at one of these locations – or both – we have heard of that before!!! 🙂
You never know, there could be some Disney stars there as well. See pics of Spencer Boldman, Laura Marano, Peyton List and Kelli Berglund having a blast at last year’s “Rock Your Disney Side Party.”
