The Disneyland Resort has been home to Disney magic for more than 60 years now. The 60-year celebration has been known as the Diamond Celebration at the Disneyland Resort and the past year has been filled with sparkles, new shows, special tributes and more to celebrate the Disney magic we have all come to love over the years and the man who made it all possible.  Since the Diamond Celebration began many have wondered just how long it would continue.  Now that we have entered the 61st year of Disneyland, it’s time to say goodbye to the Diamond Celebration. The end date of the celebration is September 5th, 2016, so if you haven’t experienced Disney Diamonds, then now is the time.

Disneyland Forever Fireworks Spectacular immerses you in the show with video, music, fireworks, snow and bubbles from Main Street USA to the facade of It’s a Small World.

Honoring Walt Disney

Since the beginning of World of Color, fans of Disney have been in awe of the things that can be accomplished with water, lights and a bit of magic. During the Diamond Celebration, World of Color takes on new meaning, bringing Walt Disney himself back to life right in front of our eyes.

Neil Patrick Harris narrates, as we join him and Mickey through the Wonderful World of Disney. It’s no longer about the many accomplishments of Disney; it’s about remembering a man who has touched our lives in multiple ways long after he’s passed. Walt Disney is a man that deserves our appreciation and World of Color Celebrate, as big and amazing as it is, is the smallest way we can show that appreciation. For some, the nighttime spectacular in California Adventure Park even brings a tear of joy to their eyes. The show is truly a must see with water, beautiful imagery, lasers, music, lights, and even a ball of fire.
