Get ready for an epic celebration! Next year, The Walt Disney Company turns 100 years old and will kick off one of the company’s largest cross-company celebrations, “Disney 100 years of Wonder.”
Disney Parks around the world will celebrate the 100th anniversary, with the heart of the celebration at Disneyland Resort. When the Disney100 celebration kicks off at Disneyland Resort, here’s just some of what you can expect, with many more details to come:
Beginning January 27th, the Happiest Place on Earth will receive new platinum-infused décor throughout the resort, new sparkling looks for Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and their pals, special food and beverage offerings, merchandise and more.
As Disney revamps Toontown, the land’s signature attraction, Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, will debut on January 27th.
The first-ever Mickey Mouse-themed ride-through attraction allows visitors to check out the premiere of Mickey and Minnie’s animated film “Perfect Picnic” before a train transports them inside the cartoon world.
In spring of next year, Disneyland will bring back the “Magic Happens” parade, reminding audiences of the magic from the classic stories they grew up with. Among the new features and limited-time offerings from Disney100, fans can continue to speculate about the new features arriving at various Disney theme parks. More reveals for Disney100 will likely be announced in the near future as the company begins to gear up for the global launch of the celebration for next year.
Disneyland Resort guests will be dazzled by two all-new nighttime spectaculars.
“World of Color – One” at Disney California Adventure park will celebrate the storytelling legacy started by Walt Disney a century ago. It will tell a new story of how a single action, like a drop of water, creates a ripple that can grow into a wave of change. It brings some of the most courageous, loving and inspiring characters to life in new ways. The show will also feature a new original song, “Start a Wave.”
At Disneyland park, Walt’s original magic kingdom will become a magnificent canvas with “Wondrous Journeys,” a new nighttime spectacular that will ignite the wonder in all of us. It will feature nods to every Walt Disney Animation Studios film to date, taking us on a journey filled with artistry, music, storytelling and heart. It will continue to build upon the park’s state-of-the-art projection effects, turning Main Street, U.S.A., Sleeping Beauty Castle, the façade of “it’s a small world” and the Rivers of America into an artist’s canvas that brings characters to life all around you. On select nights, “Wondrous Journeys” will go even bigger with the addition of sparkling fireworks in the sky above Disneyland. This spectacular will also feature an incredible new song, “It’s Wondrous.”
Disneyland Resort cast members will be among the first to experience the new offerings with special #DisneyCastLife opportunities at the start of the celebration. Plus, even more special entertainment moments are slated to pop up across the resort.
Additional news and details for the Disney100 celebration at Disneyland Resort will be shared ahead of the debut on January 27, 2023.
