Disneyland Celebrates 59 Years of Magic

We attended a guest of Disneyland

The Happiest Place on Earth Celebrated their 59th Birthday with a big celebration and announcement of the yearlong Diamond Celebration. Now, What would be a celebration without dancing? 59 of Disney’s most beloved characters gathered in the center of Main Street for dancing, dazzling lights and an explosive display of confetti.


Tears rolled down the cheeks of many Disney fans as a recording was played of Walt Disney’s opening day speech before everyone in the crowd sang “Happy Birthday” to Disneyland. The celebration ended with the unveiling of the Diamond Celebration logo.



During the celebration there was an announcement of a special contest. For the contest, everyone is invited to share their favorite memories at Disneyland.
