As the Disneyland Diamond Celebration draws near – only a few hours away until the big launch, the anticipation is stronger than ever!
Not even 24 hours from now, Disneyland will light up and sparkle as the Southern California theme park celebrates its 60 years of magic. And with California Adventure showing off its bigger and better World of Color, Disneyland Park is sure to compete, unveiling new nighttime attractions that will leave viewers in awe.
That’s right, guests of the original park will enjoy not one, but two nighttime spectaculars with the glowing nighttime parade, “Paint the Night,” and ground to sky pyrotechnic show of “Disneyland Forever.”
The “Paint the Night” parade will illuminate the streets telling 8 different stories and featuring floats and beloved Disney characters like Tinker Bell, King Triton, Ariel and Belle dressed in full array of lights and colors, making it the first LED parade in the history of the Disney theme parks.
Later, the “Disneyland Forever” fireworks show will light up the whole park – from the storefronts on Main Street, U.S.A. to the facade of “it’s a small world” to the sky over centerpiece Sleeping Beauty Castle – to a beautiful soundtrack featuring songs from our favorite Disney movies, including Finding Nemo, Tangled, and Little Mermaid. It’s the perfect “kiss goodnight.”
Can’t wait to see these new and dazzling attractions? Here’s another MiniTime exclusive sneak peek just for you.
