  • I am really excited to hear everything about Disneyland’s big 60. September here I come!!

  • I’m excited that “Disneyland Forever” will be immersive at different locations in the park. IT helps with flow…..

  • Hi,

    I am taking the Southern California Adventures by Disney tour in August, and I am looking forward to the new offerings. Do you think there will be some new or changed parts of the tour?

  • How long will the celebration last?

  • Coming for a visit in mid-April. Is there anything going to be closed to the public or blocked off at this point?

    • Pete – About six weeks in advance, you should be able to see everything that is closed for refurbishment on the calendar page on

  • I wanted to know if there has been a date set for the 24-hr event(or the rumored 60-hour)for 2015? I thought maybe there would be something mentioned after during the announcements made on the 28th

  • Those popcorn buckets are absolutely adorable!

  • This is so exciting, I hope to get to Disneyland Resort this summer.

    Thank you for sharing!
