Disneyland fans anxiously awaited announcements that would shed some light on what the park had planned for their 60th anniversary.
Now that the dust has settled on the event, we are happy to report that Disneyland fans are up for a lot of new treats as the park celebrate their 60th birthday starting on May 22, 2015.
Fireworks, parades and World of Color! Oh my!
The first announcement made tonight was that an all new World of Color show would be making its way to Disney’s California Adventure. The new show will be a history lesson of sorts where images of Walt Disney will be projected on spraying water and telling the tale of how it all started with a mouse:
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.
As if that wasn’t enough, Disneyland also announced a new parade called “Paint the Night” where your favorite Disney characters will dawn illuminating garb and make their way up Main Street USA in what looks to be a modern Main Street Electrical Parade.
And yes…there’s still more. Disneyland will be introducing a new fireworks display called “Disneyland Forever” which is supposed to be the largest fireworks show ever to grace the park.
“Disneyland Forever” will not only include the normal fireworks display that has lit up face on kids and adults alike for years, but the whole park will be used in the show including projections on attractions and surrounding environments.
Sleeping Beauty’s Castle and Carthay Circle will both get makeovers as well in a celebratory fashion.
All of this will begin on May 22nd and parks may likely hit capacity with all of the new going ons.
