Two friends promise to meet up at the magic kingdom, to only wind up in a wild goose chase.
Maybe they should have specified which kingdom first?

This is stunning.
On July 17, 2014, Disneyland celebrated its 59th Anniversary.
Starting off with some numbers by the Dapper Dans ranging from “The Tiki Tiki Tiki Room,” to “Miracles from Molecules,” the Celebration Moment continued as the quartet was quickly joined by a plethora of characters and cast members.
The host of the affair, the Mayor of Disneyland, announced that the Diamond Celebration of Disneyland’s 60th Anniversary would begin in the Spring of 2015, and would kick off with a photo contest, rules here:http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/disneyland-60-rules/ (Entries must be received by 8/27/14)
Ultimately the new logo for the upcoming 60th Anniversary was unveiled with the typical Disney panache.
Afterwards, a reception was held in the Opera House for some lucky Disney Parks Blog readers which included commemorative cupcakes and multiple meet and greet and photo opportunities:
Mickey and Minnie…
The new logo…
Anna and Elsa (minus the four hour wait)…
And even Social Media Director and America’s Sweetheart, Erin Glover!
Diamonds were certainly the motif of the day, from the decor, down to the giveaways.
Reception guests were gifted with several amenities, including a D60 diamond paperweight keepsake, and fastpasses in the form of the old-style ticket books.
While we wait for news of what to expect for next year’s 60th Anniversary, it’s probably worth noting that 59 years is nothing to sneeze at either. Happy Birthday Disneyland!
Diamond Celebration Logo Unveiled and Contest Announced for Guests to Share Favorite Memories from Six Decades
ANAHEIM, Calif. (July 17, 2014) – When Walt Disney opened Disneyland on July 17, 1955, it had 18 attractions, no Disney hotels and little but orange groves surrounding it. Today, as the Disneyland Resort celebrates its 59th anniversary, the original theme park has expanded to become a world-class family resort destination with two renowned Disney parks, nearly 100 attractions, three hotels and the shopping, dining and entertainment district known as Downtown Disney. And in the spring of 2015, the resort will launch a dazzling yearlong Diamond Celebration that salutes 60 years of magic.
“It’s an incredible time at the Disneyland Resort as we prepare for next year’s Diamond Celebration,” said Michael Colglazier, president, Disneyland Resort. “We’re excited to honor our rich history, to celebrate the incredible magic that fills our resort today, and to create unforgettable memories with our guests for many years to come.”
As part of today’s festivities, Disney invited the generations of families and friends who have visited the resort to share their favorite memories through photos taken at the Disneyland Resort. Readers of the DisneyParksBlog will vote for the top photos and one lucky guest will have a chance to win a trip to the Disneyland Resort for the start of the 60th anniversary celebration in Spring 2015.* Starting today, guests are invited to submit photos that represent their memories from the Disneyland Decades – 1950s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and 2000 to the present. Using hashtag #Disneyland60Contest, guests may share their photos via Twitter or Instagram by August 27, 2014. For complete rules, go to DisneyParksBlog.com.
Also today, the Diamond Celebration logo was unveiled as part of the annual July 17 anniversary celebration at Disneyland Park. Guests joined 59 Disney characters on Main Street, U.S.A., to hear a recording of Walt Disney’s opening day “welcome” speech and sing “Happy Birthday” in a festive marking of the 59th anniversary.
The popularity of Disneyland through the past 59 years celebrates Walt Disney’s dream of a place where family members of all ages can have fun together in a safe, clean atmosphere that emphasizes imagination and extraordinary guest service. Since 1955, dignitaries, heads of state, celebrities and more than 700 million guests have passed through the gates of a place that Walt imagined as “a source of joy and inspiration to the world.”
Disneyland transformed the amusement industry with an entirely new concept in family entertainment: a “theme park” where rides, shows and characters become part of a total storytelling environment. In the nearly six decades since it opened, the Disneyland Resort has continued to use creativity, technology and innovation to bring stories to life, while fulfilling Walt’s promise that “Disneyland will never be completed … as long as there is imagination left in the world.”
