Even though our 24-hour party is over, our Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration is just beginning. In fact, we’d like to leave you with a quote from Walt Disney himself: “We’re just getting started …”
We’re still having fun, but it’s time for a late-night snack! I found myself in need of a sugar boost, so I picked up some cotton candy in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle.
Other ways to refuel include an out-of-this-world Breakfast Burrito from Tomorrowland Terrace in Disneyland park, filled with eggs, chorizo, pico de gallo, salsa, queso fresco, and black beans wrapped in a flour tortilla, served with fresh fruit.
The Rabbit Hole has opened and the House of Cards is stacked for a funderful Diamond Mad T Party in honor of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration. And have you seen some of the surprises our mischievous hosts Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum brought back from inside the magical Disney vault?
The party continues through 1 a.m. here in Hollywood Land, with the Mad T Party Band and Hottest Deck in Town dance crew. That won’t be the end, though. The White Rabbit DJ will keep spinning splendiferous tunes all the way to 5 a.m.
Oh, and have you caught a showing of the all-new “World of Color – Celebrate!” yet? Mickey Mouse and Neil Patrick Harris will be gracing the waters of Paradise Bay once more tonight – at 3 a.m. – for a special, late-night showing.
With so many dazzling Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration merchandise choices, it wasn’t hard to get caught up in the excitement during our recent shopping adventures at the Disneyland Resort. Ashley and I were all ears trying to find out what Disney fans were buzzing about!
It took Ashley and I only a moment to find our favorites.
Erin continued to dazzle us, setting her sights on the Diamond Collection. Something sparkly for America’s Sweetheart!
What about Tyler? Well he couldn’t resist keeping us on track with the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration train.
No lunch is complete without dessert, so we all met up to enjoy the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration Cupcakes! Guests are loving these tasty treats, each deliciously themed to the land you’ll find them in.
What are you eating today? Let us know in the comments below.
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.
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.
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.
How can you tell which designs are being introduced for the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration? Here are a few tips to help you out!
Look for the special 60-D symbol which appears on the art for each new die.
Each coin will bear a special back-stamp that says Est. July 17 1955 – Disneyland Resort 60-D!
One of my favorite things is the new Pressed Coin Location Guide that features all of the presses throughout the Disneyland Resort. All of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration pressed coins can be found by simply locating the diamond icon next to the coin image. Where can you find the pressed coin location guides? Great question — the new guides are available here on the Disney Parks Blog! Take a look at the images below or download the PDF here. You can also find printed brochures at City Hall in Disneyland park, Chamber of Commerce at Disney California Adventure park and select merchandise locations throughout the Disneyland Resort.
Tip: There is a specially designed Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration collector’s book to help you keep track of your collection.
Finally, there’s one last thing before I go: keep an eye out for special ‘Decades’ presses in the Downtown Disney District that will only be available for limited period of time.
