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.
Over in Disney California Adventure park, you won’t get ‘tired’ of The Insomniac from Award Wieners — a bacon, egg and sausage dog with pepper jack cheese, topped with a maple crunch.
What has been your favorite ‘taste’ of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration 24-hour event?
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.
Earlier today, I checked out Drawing Disneyland: The Early Years – Imagineers Who Helped Bring Walt’s Dream To Life exhibit at The Disney Gallery in The Disneyland Story presenting Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln attraction. So I figured why not make the hop, skip and a jump over to Disneyana Gifts to see what else is happening – and I’m glad I did! Our talented teams of Disneyland Resort Sketch Artists have very busy creating what I consider a “diamond in the rough” – because it’s a sketch, of course. Take a look!
Special Tip: Have the artist add a personal touch to your sketch by adding a special date, name or message.
If you’re curious where to find the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration artist sketch and other favorites, visit Disneyana in Disneyland park or Off the Page in Disney California Adventure park.
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.
“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!
It’s dinnertime at Disneyland Resort, and I’ve caught up with Erin, Tyler and Shawn at French Market Restaurant in New Orleans Square. While the regular menu will be available until 11 p.m., the items we picked—Royal Street Chicken Caesar Salad, N’Awlins Salad, Creamy Corn Chowder, Slow-Roasted Louisiana Beef Stew and the Market French Dip—will continue to be served until 3 a.m.
What’s for dessert? The Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration Ice Cream Sandwich and Ice Cream Sundae (complete with souvenir kitchen sink—of course) from Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor and the S’mores Bar from Clarabelle’s Hand-Scooped Ice Cream!
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.
Last but not least, Rachel loved the Diamond Celebration ALEX AND ANI bangles so much that she got one for her mom, too!
Where have your shopping adventures taken you Diamond Celebration so far?
Among the fun and unique happenings today at Disneyland Resort for our 24-hour event are screenings of some of your favorite movies.
Step in time to the Main Street Opera House for a special sing-along version of Walt Disney’s classic “Mary Poppins,” starting in just a few minutes at 6 p.m. It’s going to be “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,” and if you can’t make it over there right away, we’re doing it all again at 10 p.m., 12:45 a.m. and 3:30 a.m.
Over at the Tomorrowland Theater, you can perch on the edge of your seat for screenings of “Guardians of the Galaxy” at 10 p.m. and 3 a.m. and “The Avengers” at 12:15 a.m.
Whichever movie you choose, it’ll be a great way to pass a couple of those hours on your way to 24!
Disneyland park is bustling this morning with guests kicking off the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration during our 24-Hour Event.
Donning their limited-edition commemorative ear hats, guests streamed along the Rivers of America to enjoy breakfast, coffee and their favorite attractions.
These visitors from Australia jumped for joy to celebrate 60 years of the Happiest Place on Earth.
And many guests are glowing already in their “Being Up All Night Makes Me Dopey” tees!
Are you celebrating with us at the Disneyland Resort today?
We received so many votes in our Disneyland Resort lunch poll, we couldn’t just choose one place to eat. We divided and conquered!
Erin chose the Pulled Pork Hot Dog from Hungry Bear Restaurant, while Tyler picked up Barbecue pulled pork and slaw cone from Cozy Cone Motel in Cars Land. Michelle and Shawn grabbed a quick bite at Red Rockett’s Pizza Port getting the Supernova Pizza Special and Mark V Dessert Waffle. And me? I couldn’t resist Mac and cheese pizza from Boardwalk Pasta & Pizza.
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.

Is there anything sweeter than the kick-off 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!
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.
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!
