Everything is bright and shiny for Disneyland’s Diamond Celebration, a year-long party for their 60th anniversary. I have a few lucky friends who were able to visit the Park in the last few weeks and were able to deliver some lovely images of the diamond decor that is currently on Main Street U.S.A.
Welcome to this month’s Magical Blogorail Red loop. Today we are discussing the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration.
I think Mickey and Minnie’s all-American sparkling outfits stand out nicely with the diamond decor.
Right from the start of the Park, Guests will be delighted with new decor for the celebration including this plaque just in front of the Main Street Station.
Coming down Main Street U.S.A, you can see that there are diamond-studded banners and 3-dimensional details on the lampposts. Blue and white bunting is draped from the shop buildings.
The Disney Parks Blog teased this photo of how Sleeping Beauty Castle would look during the Disneyland Diamond Celebration. It features swags of sparkling diamonds, draped swathes of rich blue fabric and sequined turrets that shine under the sun.
At the end of Main Street, guests are treated to a shining delight with the made-over Sleeping Beauty Castle. I like how the silver straps on the turrets resemble cut diamonds.
The clear “diamonds” at the front were replaced just several days before the official Diamond Celebration kick-off and replaced with blue turrets instead. I think I like the dark blue banners in front with the Disney “D” on them. They look very regal.
I think the classic decor would have made Walt proud.
Check out this video from the Disney Parks Blog about how the castle was redesigned for the Diamond Celebration.
