Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration Brings ‘Sweet’ Surprises

posted on May 22nd, 2015 by Michelle Harker, Manager, Merchandise Marketing & Communications, Disneyland Resort

Is there anything sweeter than the kickoff to the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration? In my case, yes! There are dazzling and delectable new confections debuting in the candy kitchens at the Disneyland Resort, and I have all the details!

Mickey Minnie Apples 2

These stunning Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse apples are enrobed in caramel, dipped in chocolate and have been dusted in sparkling blue sanding sugar. With final touches of chocolate “gem” buttons and a diamond-shaped bow for Minnie Mouse, these two never looked so delicious.

DL60Candy

Of course, it wouldn’t be a celebration without some of our other fan favorites like the marshmallow wand, krispy treat and the ever-popular cake pops, all of which were inspired by the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration sparkling blue and silver tone theme. The candy makers didn’t stop there, so be sure to keep an eye out for a special Ear Hat Cake Pop featuring a commemorative “60” chocolate lay-on.

Caramelbarsandpecanroll

We didn’t stop there ─ If you were hoping for something more nostalgic, you’re in luck! Chocolate-dipped caramel bars (with and without sea salt) will be available, along with the pecan roll and other delicious treats. Note: These items will only be available at Candy Palace in Disneyland park.

If you are planning to ‘sweeten’ your experience in the park today, visit Candy Palace in Disneyland park; Trolley Treats in Disney California Adventure park; and Marceline’s Confectionery in the Downtown Disney District!

What is topping your list of must have treats?

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Walt Disney Company Bob Iger kicked off the premiere performances last night with a special welcome on Main Street, U.S.A.

“Few companies have both a legendary past as well as a limitless future,” Iger said. “But we had the great fortune to be founded with a spirit of creativity and innovation – one that continues to define this phenomenal company, allowing us to keep moving forward to meet the future without ever losing sight of who we are and where it all started. It’s a true honor to usher in the celebration of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Anniversary as we celebrate the triumph of imagination in a place where dreams really do come true.”

Take a look back at this special event in the videos below.

The Disney Gallery Unveils New Exhibit for the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration

posted on May 22nd, 2015 by Michelle Harker, Manager, Merchandise Marketing & Communications, Disneyland Resort


dlr130pm

May 22 is finally here, and the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration is underway! While there’s so much to see and do, one place I couldn’t resist visiting on one of my shopping adventures was The Disney Gallery located in the lobby of The Disneyland Story presenting Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln. A new exhibit was unveiled just this morning — Drawing Disneyland: The Early Years – Imagineers Who Helped Bring Walt’s Dream To Life.

jmsjms746911

I had the chance to get the back-story about this exciting new exhibit which of course, I wanted to share with all of you:

Walt Disney had an idea for “a family park, where parents and children could have fun together.” Problem is, he didn’t know how to design and build it. Unfortunately, neither did the architecture and engineering firm he hired. That’s when Walt’s longtime friend, architect Welton Becket, told him the best people to design the park were his own animators and art directors. These were the people who best understood Walt and what he wanted to do.

So in 1952 Walt formed WED Enterprises (now Walt Disney Imagineering) and recruited members of his own staff from the Disney Studio, as well as designers and artists from other studios, to help him develop this new kind of park he was calling Disneyland. Though none of them had ever designed theme parks (Who had at that time?), they did know, with their film backgrounds and set-designing skills, how to turn Walt’s ideas into concept sketches and detailed renderings.

Drawing Disneyland celebrates five of those artists, all with experience in live-action and animated films, each of whom played a key role in the development of one of the original lands of Disneyland – and ultimately proved Welton Becket right. Who are they? I won’t leave you in suspense any further.

Harper Goff – Adventureland
John Hench – Tomorrowland
Harry Johnson – Main Street, U.S.A.
Bill Martin – Fantasyland
Sam McKim – Frontierland

I hope during your next visit you’ll enjoy this historical retrospective, which showcases the rich heritage and history of the Disneyland Resort — from how far we’ve come to where we’re headed.

Special Tip: If you find a favorite piece of art on display in the new exhibit, stop next store at Disneyana Gifts to inquire whether it is available to purchase via Art on Demand, and bring the magic of Disney, home.
