Disneyland’s 60th Anniversary

Disneyland's 60th Anniversary Celebration

Happy Birthday Disneyland!

Today 60 years ago Disneyland opened it’s Castle gates for the very first time. July 17th, 1955 started it all for amusement parks around the world. Walt Disney’s dream was brought to life, as a place for people of all ages to come and experience a little magic. It paved the way for more parks to be formed but none can quite match the magic that is Disneyland.

Since its Disney’s 60th Anniversary it means it’s time for diamonds. So the park, Downtown Disney and California Adventure have been decorated in honor of the Celebration and everywhere a diamond can be found from food to merchandise. I mean it wouldn’t be a Diamond Celebration without some bling. Sleeping Beauty’s Castle is draped in them and that makes it the perfect backdrop for a photo op. There are so many Diamond themed treats to enjoy it’ll be hard to just pick one. Along with the treats there is for a limited time speciality popcorn buckets and souvenir cups. Stop in any gift shop to find exclusive Celebration memorabilia from Diamond ears to trading pins.
