Disneyland is celebrating its Diamond Anniversary this year. The spectacular 60 years of fun and constant innovation in the Disney parks are something we all look forward to all the time! And with the upcoming movie Tomorrowland, our last visit to Disneyland was filled with emotions and memories to cherish forever.
As you may know Disney creates a unique experience around each and every new movie it releases into the world. It is Tomorrowland that is in the offing with its open date May 22, 2015. The magic around movie’s presentation to the public is felt everywhere! From the fabulous authentic movie memorabilia that was used on the set to the daily experience of garbage cans! Yes, this is Disney!

I LOVE these awesome real-life trash cans that add to the theme around the Tomorrowland exhibit!
The Tomorrowland section of Disneyland was created by Walt Disney in 1955 to capture the optimism the American society was living with. That is what we truly are in need of today. The creators of the movie Tomorrowland Brad Bird, Director, and Damon Lindelof, Writer, tapped into the Disney’s Archives to explore the possibilities of using Disneyland’s Tomorrowland concept for their upcoming movie.
You will be taken away with the innovative ideas of the movie wrapped up in the so familiar Disney presentation! Take your family to the movie to get inspired and motivated to live life in today’s world.
As we dove into the history and the making of the Tomorrowland movie, we found a lot of places in Disneyland that made their way into the movie! It was exciting to see the sites so familiar, yet so magical in the movie.
It’s A Small World
I can go on this ride again and again, and experience it with new emotions and feelings. This is a true meaning of “magic.”
And who doesn’t love the Little Mermaid?
Little and big kids would have a great time learning, interacting and taking breathtaking rides with the CARS! McQueen and his friends have got it covered!
You can wander the magic streets of Disneland for hours. But the day won’t be complete without joining in the fun of its amazing shows and parades! This year, with Disney’s Diamond Anniversary Celebration, the magic has become even more magnificent with three new shows and parades. Check them out!
World of Color
Award- winning actor Neil Patrick Harris will join Mickey Mouse on a magical water canvas to entertain guests in this fun-filled new presentation of the popular, nighttime “World of Color” spectacular in Disney California Adventure.
Both epic and intimate in scope, “World of Color – Celebrate!” brings to life the remarkable story of Walt and The Happiest Place on Earth with animated imagery, live-action film, fountains, lasers, special effects and a stirring musical score.
Guests will take an inspirational journey through the unparalleled imagination of Walt Disney, exploring his decades-long legacy of memorable animated moments around the world and the dream of Disneyland Park.
“World of Color – Celebrate!” reminds guests that, if they never give up on their dreams, anything is possible.
“Disneyland Forever” Fireworks Spectacular Show
The dazzling new fireworks show, “Disneyland Forever,” is a street-to-sky, immersive experience like nothing seen before at the Disneyland Resort. Guests will be surrounded by the worlds of timeless Disney tales, from the tips of their toes to the sky high above, thanks to the largest installation of projection mapping technology in a Disney park and surprising special effects.
One minute they will be standing on Main Street, U.S.A., and the next they could be stampeding across Simba’s Pride Lands, dancing with King Louie from “The Jungle Book,” traveling “Under the Sea” with the Little Mermaid, flying over London with Peter Pan, dripping in honey with Pooh in a whimsical dream of heffalumps and woozles, or quivering as Queen Elsa brings a glimmering blanket of snow over Disneyland.

“Paint the Night” Parade
When the lights go down in Disneyland, the Diamond Celebration illuminates the park with a brilliant, new parade. The luminescent parade creates a river of color flowing down Main Street, U.S.A., with an array of Disney characters and more than 1.5 million brilliant LED lights that flash and glow as Mickey Mouse uses his vivid imagination to “Paint the Night.”
With dazzling special effects, unforgettable music, energetic performances, fun surprises and spectacular floats, “Paint the Night” is more vibrant than any parade in 60 years at the Disneyland Resort.
Even the choreography glows, as parade performers light up with their props and costumes. Tinker Bell leads the procession in a magical, musical overture, closely followed by a float reminiscent of the giant bass drum that led the “Main Street Electrical Parade.”
Lightning McQueen races in with his buddy Mack Truck, who makes a hefty impression at 54-feet long, covered from headlights to tail pipe in gleaming light. Anna and Elsa from “Frozen” glide through the night in a shimmering palace of ice and snow.
Guests also will be delighted to see Cinderella, Rapunzel and beloved characters from tales such as “Monsters, Inc.,” “The Little Mermaid,” “Beauty and the Beast” and “Toy Story,” with Mickey and his pals creating a breathtaking grand finale.
