World of Color at Disney California Adventure – Frozen video

If you didn’t see my previous post about World of Color, be sure to check it out.  This video is the Frozen section of the World of Color show which I recorded on our trip to Disneyland’s 60th celebration in July. Advertisements

World of Color at Disney California Adventure

For Disneyland’s 60 celebration, Disneyland changed the World of Color show on the Disney California Adventure lagoon to be more about Walt Disney.  The new show debuted in May and is titled Celebrate! The Wonderful World of Walt Disney! This rendition of the show is narrated by Neil Patrick Harris and while I like him as a … Continue reading

Disneyland Paint the Night Parade Videos

One of the new attractions that was announced for the Disneyland 60th Anniversary event was the new Paint the Night parade. I was definitely not disappointed when we saw this while visiting for the 60th celebration.  It was just beautiful and the music pays homage to the Baroque Hoedown used for the old Mainstreet Electrical parade.   … Continue reading

Disneyland Paint the Night Parade

One of the new attractions that was announced for the Disneyland 60th Anniversary event was the new Paint the Night parade. The Mainstreet Electrical parade hadn’t run at Disneyland since 1996 and fans had long been calling for this parade to return.  After I had seen the older SpectroMagic at Walt Disney World, and comparing it more … Continue reading

For the First Time in Forever

We spent our last day at Disneyland last month, hanging out at Disney California Adventure.  For our last few trips, we have found we actually spend more time here than Disneyland Park.  Often just soaking up the atmosphere and enjoying the new attractions. It seems that there is always something new to enjoy. For this … Continue reading

Disneyland Forever Fireworks

Back in May, Disneyland debuted their new fireworks display to celebrate the 60th, entitled Disneyland Forever.  Disney quite simply has completely ruined me for all other fireworks displays, which pale into a poor substitute. One of the cool things about the new show is that depending where you are situated for viewing is that you … Continue reading

Visiting the exclusive 1901 lounge at Disney California Adventure

I hinted in my post about the Carthay Circle Restaurant (and our disappointing meal) that I’d do a post about visiting the extremely exclusive 1901 lounge at Disney California Adventure. One “must do” for many Disney fan(atics) is getting an invite to the exclusive member-only Club 33 in New Orleans Square at Disneyland.  It’s a simple case of not … Continue reading

Carthay Circle Restaurant at Disney California Adventure

As part of our VIP tour to Disneyland for the 60th, we got a private tour of Carthay Circle Restaurant and the exclusive 1901 lounge (more on that in a future post). This was the first time I’d been inside the Carthay Circle Restaurant.  Typically we don’t do sit down dining while at Disney – it’s … Continue reading

Disneyland 60th Silver and Blue Decorations

A few photos of Disneyland decked out in its beautiful 60th celebration silver and blue decorations.  Also if you didn’t catch it, be sure to check out my post on the rededication ceremony.

I was there – July 17, 2015 – Disneyland 60th Rededication Ceremony

Hard to believe a week ago I was in California celebrating Disneyland’s 60th anniversary.  We took part in an Adventures by Disney Backstage Magic, a VIP tour with a focus on the 60th celebration.  This meant VIP viewing for the new parades, fireworks and of course the rededication ceremony on the morning of July 17th. … Continue reading

Disneyland’s 60th Merchandise

One of the things that many Disney fans were excited about was the new merchandise offerings for the Disneyland 60th celebration.  With the diamond anniversary colour scheme of blue and silver, I was keen to see the available goodies to buy.  I love to shop, but I’m completely rubbish at it, and didn’t buy hardly … Continue reading

The return of the Hatbox Ghost

When Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion attraction first opened in 1969, one of the effects was the Hatbox Ghost.  There were apparently some difficulties with the way the effect looked to the public, and within a short period of time, he was removed from the ride. However he remained in the Disney fandom as a beloved, favourite character. … Continue reading

Cake and cupcakes at Disneyland’s 60th

I’ll be doing a bunch of posts over the next few weeks about Disneyland’s 60th celebration but thought I’d start with cake… This amazing and huge castle sculpture below, was in the lobby of the Grand Californian Hotel.  At around 1 metre tall (about 3 foot), it consists of (US measurements stolen from the sign) 8 … Continue reading

Oh boy! Disneyland’s 60th Celebration

This was the turn down service this evening at Disney’s Grand Californian hotel on the evening of the 16th July.  The 60th anniversary kicks off tomorrow morning as shown below. Very excited! (post scheduled in advance as I’ll be too busy celebrating tomorrow 😉 ) To see more about Disney (including more on the 60th … Continue reading
