Did you know that we will be at Disneyland for the 60th Anniversary Celebration for the park? Well, we didn’t know. . . at first. But we do now!
I stumbled across the opening date of Disneyland with a “Daily Disney Trivia” question posed on the Williams Family Blog Facebook page. I then dawned on me that we would be in the thick of the celebration during our vacation this summer.
Then, I called Disneyland, well, the reservation number, as I had questions. A great Cast Member, named Peter who sounded more like he was from the East Coast than the West Coast and when I asked him about that he said he “gets asked that all the time” but assured me he was a West Coast native. Back to the point—when talking to Peter he told me that many great things are planned for the 60th Anniversary Celebration. Whew hew!
Already, announcements are being made for the celebration, like a new nightly fireworks show just for the occasion. The new nighttime fireworks show will actually start sometime in May.
When the Williams Family was talking about this over dinner, we started to daydream about the possibilities. . . would there be new or unusual characters to meet? A “dream squad” magically making guests’ dreams come true? And then there’s the news of MagicBands and FastPass+ expanding to other parks. We mused about the idea of being selected to test MagicBands at Disneyland this summer or better yet, that the service would get to Disneyland even before our arrival.
You might be asking if we planned our trip to Disneyland based on the 60th Anniversary Celebration. The answer: No. The timing of our trip and the celebration is serendipitous. And at the same time, it’s not the first time we’ve stumbled into some Disney Magic!
