Disneyland Resort Celebrates Disney100 … at Night
This year, Disney Parks around the world will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Walt Disney Company. However, Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California will be at the center of the celebration.
Evening festivities at The Happiest Place on Earth began on Jan. 27 with the debut of all-new nighttime spectaculars by Disney Live Entertainment: “World of Color – ONE” and “Wondrous Journeys.”
- World of Color – ONE at Disney California Adventure Park celebrates the storytelling legacy started by Walt Disney a century ago. This new nighttime spectacular illustrates how a single action can create a ripple that grows into a wave of change. Characters, music and moments from Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, the Avengers and Star Wars will appear in the same production. This is a Disney first. Also, guests will hear a new original song, “Start a Wave.”
- Wondrous Journeys at Disneyland Park features nods to every Walt Disney Animation Studios film over the last century. A new song, “It’s Wondrous,” will also be introduced. Filled with artistry, music, storytelling and heart, this nighttime spectacular builds upon the park’s state-of-the-art projection effects. Main Street, U.S.A., Sleeping Beauty Castle, the façade of “it’s a small world” and the Rivers of America will all become a light artist’s canvas. On select nights, “Wondrous Journeys” goes even bigger with the addition of fireworks.
Alongside the Disney100 anniversary celebration, the Hotels of the Disneyland Resort will debut new developments later this year.
- Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel will become Pixar Place Hotel, weaving the artistry of Pixar into a comfortable, contemporary setting.
- The Villas at Disneyland Hotel – a new, 344-room tower – will immerse guests in decades of animated classics.
By day and night, a new exhibit will also be on display at Disneyland Park. “The Disney Gallery Presents: Disney 100 Years of Wonder” pays tribute to Disney films that became Disneyland Resort attractions.
P.S. There are also new daytime events and attractions for Disney100 but, you know us, 24HourNation is all about the night.
