The Fourth of July is just a day away! From our daily flag retreat ceremony to special Independence Day entertainment, the Disneyland Resort has a variety of traditions that salute America’s heritage. In celebration of our nation’s birthday, let’s take a look back at three videos showcasing how we have paid tribute to America here at the Disneyland Resort.
UPDATE: This event has reached capacity and confirmation emails are being sent. Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for future opportunities!
If you’re as excited about the upcoming film “Ant-Man” as we are, I’ve got great news for you today! Disney Parks Blog readers have been invited to attend a special advanced screening of the film here at AMC Downtown Disney 12 at the Disneyland Resort. Event guests are invited to show their super hero side and attend in costume!
“Ant-Man,” directed by Peyton Reed and starring Paul Rudd as Scott Lang/Ant-Man and Michael Douglas as Dr. Hank Pym, introduces us to a hero armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength. Master thief Scott Lang must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.

Peter Pan’s Flight is open once again for Disneyland park guests after a recent refurbishment which added new magic and effects throughout the classic attraction. Join Imagineers Larry Nikolai and Elisabeth Papadopoulos for a scene-by-scene tour of these additions in the video below!
Are you planning to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Disneyland on July 17? If so, get your best duds ready and come dressed in your finest suits and circle skirts . . . we’re inviting you to show your 1955 Disney Side!
When Disneyland opened on July 17, 1955, guests arrived in their fanciest attire . . . even children were dressed to the nines. Fast forward sixty years and many of our guests still enjoy visiting the Disneyland Resort in their three-piece suits and hats, cat-eye sunglasses and pearls. So in honor of our historic opening day, Disneyland Resort guests are encouraged to help us travel back in time by wearing their favorite 1955-inspired ensembles.
Throughout the day, you will have opportunities to show your 1955 Disney Side with special photo locations and themed entertainment. So curl your hair, dust off that fedora and take your Disney Side back in time to celebrate 60 years of Disneyland!
We’re just a few days away from the reopening of Peter Pan’s Flight at Disneyland park, and today I’ve got a sneak peek at the new magic that awaits guests in this classic attraction.
As we first told you back in April, Walt Disney Imagineering has brought a little bit of pixie dust to this opening-day favorite, with a reimagined nursery scene and a variety of special effects. And look closely as your pirate ship flies by to catch a glimpse of Peter Pan’s shadow!
You can experience the new magic at Peter Pan’s Flight for yourself when the attraction reopens July 1.
The Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration is now underway and already guests are enjoying all that it has to offer – from dazzling decor to amazing new nighttime spectaculars. Let’s take a closer look with some of the videos we have been sharing here on the Disney Parks Blog.
Two amazing new nighttime experiences have debuted at Disneyland park for the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration: “Paint the Night” parade and “Disneyland Forever” fireworks. Both have become exceedingly popular with our guests, so I worked with my friend Amy from our Guest Show Operations team here at Disneyland park to bring you these tips for watching our incredible new parade and fireworks spectacular.
“Paint the Night” parade – Viewing areas can fill up quickly for the first “Paint the Night” parade, so it can be much easier to find viewing for the second parade of the night.
“Disneyland Forever” fireworks – There are viewing areas for “Disneyland Forever” fireworks along the Rivers of America and near “it’s a small world,” in addition to Main Street, U.S.A. and Sleeping Beauty Castle. Each area lends a different feel to the show, so consider trying them all!
Finding help – Need help finding a viewing area? Just ask a cast member, especially those holding orange wands or flashlights. They can direct you to the best place for viewing, and can also help you locate wheelchair-accessible viewing areas for “Paint the Night” parade.
What are your tips for watching “Paint the Night” parade and “Disneyland Forever” fireworks? Share them in the comments.
