As the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration summer finale continues for a few more weeks, I wanted to look back at some of the most popular items from this dazzling event.
We first revealed artwork for this milestone anniversary celebration in January 2015.
The ‘Character’ collection focused on characters, attractions, and the rich history of the resort. With its sparkling blue and silver hues, the “Castle” collection featured Sleeping Beauty Castle, glistening with magical diamond dust. The stunning “Diamond” collection included black, gray and silver tones that were simple, classic and elegant. Finally, the “Decades” collection looked back at milestones from the previous six decades that made the Disneyland Resort what it is today.
More than 500 merchandise items were created for celebration, including apparel, accessories, headwear, home décor, souvenirs, toys, pins, D-Tech, collectibles and more.
Which products were most popular with our guests?
I spoke with the planning team who shared with me the top items from this celebration. Popular items included the sparkling headband, a special Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration ear hat, an open edition logo pin, an autograph book, and apparel for women and men. Guests also loved the new Made with Magic ear hat that interacted with select nighttime spectaculars at the Disneyland Resort.
Two of the top items included Disneyland Diamond Celebration charms by PANDORA Jewelry. These charms will be retired once the celebration concludes. I’m glad my fiancée picked these up when we visited for her milestone birthday. They were a nice way to remember our trip together.
Speaking of memories, I have so many from that trip last December. We had fun “scaling up the fun” at the unique Matterhorn photo opportunity in Fantasyland. I also loved seeing Sleeping Beauty Castle shimmering at night.

Don’t forget, the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration will continue to dazzle guests through September 5, 2016.
