Disneyland Resort has announced new details for its Disney100 anniversary celebration, which begins January 27. Disney 100 Years of Wonder honors the 100th anniversary of Walt Disney Animation Studios with a corporate celebration that spans the globe.
At D23 Expo last month, Josh D’Amaro, chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products, gave attendees a first look at the new decor, dining, and merchandise offerings. On Thursday, October 6, Disneyland Resort released more details.
Here are 3 things you should know about the Disney100 celebration:
Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty Castle goes platinum
The castle will be adorned with platinum banners and pennants depicting the three good fairies, which will be glittered with glowing pixie dust. Other decorative details include a wishing star on the castle tower and two water features on either side of the moat.
Two new nighttime extravaganzas will debut at both parks
Set at Disney California Adventure Park, “World of Color – One” will feature an original song called “Start the Wave” and will illustrate Walt Disney’s storytelling legacy by bringing some of the most inspiring characters to life in new ways.
In Disneyland Park, a nighttime spectacle called “Wondrous Journeys” commemorates the 60 films by Walt Disney Animation Studios to date. Using projection effects, the experience transforms locations throughout the park into viewing areas. Main Street, USA, Sleeping Beauty Castle, It’s a Small World and The Rivers of America are transformed into canvases that bring characters to life. On select nights, Wondrous Journeys also includes fireworks.
Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway attraction opens early on January 27th
The remaining Mickey’s Toontown is slated to reopen in Spring 2023, but the new attraction, Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, will debut with the Disney100 celebration. Another highlight for spring: The “Magic Happens” parade returns to Disneyland Park.
Note: Theme park reservations are currently on hold for dates after January 8, but will resume in the coming weeks.
