Editor’s Note:
  • January 26, 2015: Walt for Disneyland’s 60th –
    The 60th Anniversary media party and announcement is Wednesday night, even if TDA suits are still under strict orders to not talk about it and pretend it's only a Frozen Fun media event. Walt Disney will be used very purposely for the Diamond Celebration, in a way that will even surpass his use for the 50th Anniversary. Much will be revealed on Wednesday!
    • MICECHAT 10th ANNIVERSARY INFORMATION AND TICKETS POSTED (February 6, 7, 8 at the Disneyland Resort): Space is VERY limited for the three ticketed events.  Don't miss out, read all about it on the MiceChat Meets and Events Page - HERE.
