We only have a few months to go before the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration begins. Is everyone as excited as I am? It was so tough to decide what to show you for a first look. So, I thought I would take you behind the scenes, into our Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration showroom, where you can see for yourselves some of the amazing items headed your way this May at the Disneyland Resort.
There’s so much more to see, so keep watching the Disney Parks Blog for Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration merchandise updates. And join the conversation with the hashtag #Disneyland60.
What items made your list for the big celebration?
While I’ve always wanted to climb the Great Wall of China, take a peek at the famous Terracotta Warriors in Xi’an and shop in Stanley Market in Hong Kong (and check out Hong Kong Disneyland while I’m in the neighborhood), there are many parts of China that are less known to me – it’s a pretty big place after all. But sometimes you see a photo and declare “I just have to go there!” And this sunrise photo of the Li river, taken on the Adventures by Disney China vacation, did just that for me.
This shot was taken in the ancient city of Guilin, and it’s easy to see why so many Chinese poems and paintings celebrate the wonder of this place.
On the Adventures by Disney China trip you have the chance to cruise along the Li river, stay in a hotel with stunning views of the water and these soaring magical formations, and even take a morning tai chi lesson with these legendary Gumdrop Mountains (yes, that’s their real name – isn’t it perfect?) as your backdrop. Plus you get to see all the things I mentioned at the beginning of this post, and more, like Giant Pandas – sign me up!
The Walt Disney World Resort is a great place to visit with friends, as evidenced by this photo snapped in 1989 of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn.
Looks like they’re up to some mischief. What are they whispering about? You tell us. Go ahead and “Caption This” image in our comments section.
Downtown Disney turns 40 today. Gusts vising today have quite a different experience than the shopping experience back in 1975 when the Lake Buena Vista Shopping Village opened.
This week, we kicked off our second annual “March Magic” tournament, sharing this year’s roster as well as a printable bracket to keep track of your choices.
This week at Disney Parks, some of the most compelling images were shot at Magic Kingdom Park, where on Thursday, March 19, the U.S. Navy Blue Angels performed two flyovers above Cinderella Castle.
On March 21, 1975, six years after man first set foot on the moon, the Flight to the Moon attraction at Disneyland park was relaunched with a new destination.
The Garden Rocks Concert Series at the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival has a few newbies this year, including this weekend’s group – En Vogue. I own a couple of their CD’s, and have sung along with their hits including “Free Your Mind”, “Don’t Let Go” and “My Lovin.” The trio has a new album coming out later this year. I had a chance to chat with Rhona Bennett about their festival debut – it’s a homecoming, of sorts, for her!
We have shared some details about how Walt Disney World Resort will be the coolest place for an unforgettable family getaway this summer, and as a mom of preschoolers, I was thrilled to see how much there is for my little ones to do! With Olaf as the host for “Coolest Summer Ever,” of course there will be lots of Frozen-inspired fun, but there is also so much more.
This summer, we’re setting sail once again to destinations around the Baltic Sea! Helsinki, Finland and Tallinn, Estonia are two of the locales you can explore on our Northern European cruises, and we have fantastic Port Adventure options for your family to make the most of your time in these historic cities.
