Prepare yourselves, my friends. There is another 24HR Disney Day ahead!
From May 22nd-23rd, Disneyland will be kicking off summer and it’s Diamond Jubilee Celebration with three new nighttime spectaculars: the vibrant “Paint the Night” Parade, and stunning “Disneyland Forever” Fireworks show at Disneyland Park. In Disney California Adventure there will be the premier of “Wor ld of Color—Celebrate! The Wonderful World of Walt Disney.”
Beginning at 6AM on May 22nd and ending 6AM on Saturday the 23rd, the kick off celebration will offer special character encounters in both Disneyland & Disney California Adventure Park, dancing, dazzling diamond décor, and more.
Here’s a breakdown of the new nighttime shows:
“Paint the Night Parade”:
After dark along the Disneyland parade route, guests at the 24hr Disney Day will be among the first to see the “Paint the Night” parade, featuring your favorite Disney characters in dazzling parade scenes illuminated with more than 1.5 million individually controlled lights – the first all-LED parade in Disneyland Resort history. This stunning show introduces a new era of magical entertainment, as Mickey Mouse uses his imagination to harness the power of Tinker Bell’s pixie dust to “Paint the Night” in dazzling Disney dreams. Those dreams include special appearances by Mickey’s pals and beloved characters from tales such as “Monsters, Inc.,” “Cars,” “The Little Mermaid,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Toy Story” and “Frozen.” The parade features some of the most incredible floats, magical music and (of course) stunning special effects ever presented at the Disneyland Resort. Not only that, the performers will add to the brilliance with colorful costumes that light up, too.
“Disneyland Forever” Fireworks Show –
Disneyland Park itself plays a starring role in the “Disneyland Forever” fireworks spectacular. Unforgettable fireworks shows have long been a Disneyland Resort tradition and “Disneyland Forever” takes it to a new level, immersing guests from the tips of their toes to the brilliant pyrotechnic bursts above, thanks to special effects that turn the storefronts of Main Street, U.S.A., the Matterhorn mountain, the “Fantasmic!” water screens and the façade of “it’s a small world” into gigantic projections screens filled with color, characters and surprises. “Disneyland Forever” transports guests into the worlds of beloved Disney and DisneyPixar films, including a dance with King Louie from the “The Jungle Book” and a flight over London with characters from “Peter Pan.” Two original songs also energize the show: the theme “Live the Magic,” and the inspiring closing song “Kiss Goodnight,” written by Disney Legend Richard M. Sherman. “Disneyland Forever” will be visible from Main Street, U.S.A., and several Disneyland locations. – See more at: At Disney California Adventure:
“World of Color – Celebrate! The Wonderful World of Walt Disney” –
Neil Patrick Harris and Mickey Mouse will appear in film sequences and animated imagery of the all-new “World of Color” show, premiering May 22 during the 24-hour party. “World of Color – Celebrate!” brings even more dazzling wonder with a fun-filled and inspirational journey exploring Walt Disney’s decades-long legacy of memorable animated moments and his dream of Disneyland park. It culminates in a madcap musical tour of Disneyland Resort attractions as you’ve never seen them before. Both epic and intimate in scope, “World of Color – Celebrate!” comes to life with animation, live-action film, fountains, lasers, special effects and a stirring musical score, all on the magical water canvas of “World of Color.”
These amazing new night time wonders will continue throughout the summer, so don’t be too disappointed if you can’t make the 24HR celebration. Downtown Disney, as well as the Disneyland Resort Hotels will be all a glitter as the Diamond Décor stretches throughout.
It’s an extra-magical time to visit the resort, and a once in a lifetime party! Be sure to follow along with us on Twitter, Facebook & Instagram to see the celebration unfold. For all the official details visit disneyparks.com
