The sun is setting on the West Coast, and you know what that means! It’s almost time to behold the sparkling crown jewels of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration. Here in Disneyland park, our guests have staked out their spots for tonight’s opening performances. For those of you following along at home, be sure to keep your eyes glued to the live streams for the best view of the action.

The Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration live stream has concluded.

Paint the Night” is up first, as Mickey Mouse uses his vivid imagination to harness the power of Tinker Bell’s pixie dust and bring to light beloved characters and stories from “Monsters, Inc.,” “Cars,” “The Little Mermaid,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Toy Story,” “Frozen” and more. “Paint the Night” is running at 8:50 p.m. and 1 a.m. Pacific Time.

And at 9:30 p.m., Disneyland park will be transformed through a breathtaking journey of projections and pyrotechnics with the debut of “Disneyland Forever.” It’s going to be a beautiful sight you won’t want to miss!

Magic Kingdom Park Mountain Challenge Completed

posted on May 22nd, 2015 by Steven Miller, Merchandise Communications Manager


wdw500pm

Earlier this morning, I shared my plans to conquer the mountains of Magic Kingdom Park for the 24-hour party. I’m happy to report that my challenge has been completed. Here’s a quick look back at my journey.

My morning started with an out-of-this-world journey on Space Mountain in Tomorrowland. I love the entrance and exit queue at this attraction. When I was younger, I would stand for hours listening to the music. One day, I want to recreate the lighting and decor in my home.

My next stop was Seven Dwarfs Mine Train in New Fantasyland. The Dwarfs cottage in the queue may be my favorite thing as it looks like it leaped off the movie screen. I also enjoy the launch down the first hill, and the climb with the shadows of the Dwarfs projected on the wall is awesome!

My afternoon saw a stop at Big Thunder Mountain Railroad in Frontierland. A special thanks to attractions cast member Miguel for jumping in my photo at the entrance. The image made me laugh after I saw it. Once again, the queue for this ride is fantastic. There are so many hidden details including my favorite, a nod to Rosita from the Tropical Serenade in Adventureland.

I finished my mountain challenge with a drop down Chikapin Hill at Splash Mountain in Frontierland. I managed to get a face full of water while riding in the last row. I consider it the perfect start to the “Coolest Summer Ever” at Walt Disney World Resort.
