Disneyland Resort 60th Anniversary Celebration Rundown
Are You Ready To Paint The Night At Disneyland?
After the disastrous Light Magic failed to catch on following on the heals of the beloved Main Street Electrical Parade, Disneyland simply gave up on the idea of an evening parade, relying instead on a daytime parade only. This spring, all of that will change when the park debuts Paint the Night every evening.
DON’T MISS: MiceChat 10th Anniversary Weekend at Disneyland
February 6 – 8th
It’s been 10 years since we first started MiceChatting. Our big celebration will be held in and around the Disneyland Resort and will include a cocktail reception with legends of animation, panel discussions with Disney Imagineers, authors and even a beloved legend or two. We’ll celebrate Yesterland, give away fantastic prizes, and enjoy a wonderful time with friends old and new at the Happiest Place on Earth. If you’ve been with us from the beginning or have only recently found us, we look forward to seeing you at the Disneyland Resort February 6th through 8th. Below are the must attend events for our 10th anniversary! TICKETS AND INFORMATION HERE
Join a select group of animation superstars with a casual and fun MiceChat 10th Anniversary cocktail party at the lovely Anabella Hotel, located just steps away from the Disneyland Resort. We’ll have a brief discussion with the animators about 2-D and 3-D animation, past and future. Then we’ll enjoy a night of drinks, nibbles, and interaction with some of the most creative folks in the Animation industry!
Celebrate MiceChat’s 10 years of Disney and theme park magic with our special AMAZEMENT Saturday epic event at the ESPN Zone. We will treat you with three fantastic panel discussions with notable legends and surprise guests:
This enchanted morning will last from 9am until 1:30pm and will include a light breakfast of fresh fruit and assorted bagels as well as a delightful lunch of apple walnut salad, truffle mac and cheese with broccoli, and a delicious grilled beef tri tip with mashed potatoes and assorted desserts. Twelve lucky attendees can upgrade to the “VIP Package”, which offers VIP front row seating as well as a keepsake gift signed by our special guests.
After the morning sessions we will head into DCA for a day of play including a scavenger hunt and one of our famous trivia contests with fabulous prizes sponsored by Fairy Godmother Travel.
FREE DCA scavenger hunt event from MiceChat and D23 during MiceChat Anniversary weekend. Come join us at 3:30 on Saturday, February 7th for a one hour quest celebrating the upcoming D23 Expo. There will be all sorts of surprises along the way. It’s free (you still need park admission), but you’ll need to sign up to participate. Don’t miss out, lots of great prizes! SIGN UP FOR THE D23 CHALLENGE FOR FREE HERE
The day will start in the classic style, as we’ve done for the last 10 anniversaries, with breakfast at the Riverbelle Terrace, a trip around the Rivers of America aboard the Mark Twain, and a classic noon meet and group photo in front of the castle (we’ll meet you all at the Walt and Mickey statue at noon).
This year, we have a very special program planned for you after lunch. MiceChat is turning 10 years old, Yesterland is turning 20, and Disneyland is turning 60! That’s a lot of memories. Just after lunch we’ll join Werner Weiss of Yesterland and special guest hosts for a historic tour of Disneyland Park the way Walt would have remembered it. It promises to be a wonderful day full of tributes, memories and magic.
Please note that the Yesterland portion of the afternoon has SOLD OUT. You can join the YESTERLAND TOUR WAIT LIST HERE.
