Happy Birthday, Disneyland!

Today is Disneyland’s 52nd birthday. I’d have to say that Walt’s Big Experiment looks pretty good 52 years later!

This year we’ve already seen the the second annual Disney’s California Food and Wine Weekends, and the openings of Pirates Lair on Tom Sawyer Island and the new Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage. Coming up, Disney has announced the return of Disney’s HalloweenTime this fall – this year it starts earlier, on September 21. Haunted Mansion Holiday will be open then, and all of the Halloween decorations will be up. Mickey’s Halloween Treat will be returning to Disney’s California Adventure for 11 nights in October – this year, in addition to all of the trick or treat stops there will be a “character cavalcade” show.

And after that there will be the always wonderful “Merriest Place on Earth” holiday celebration, with all of the special decorations, parade, and fireworks show.

Next year Toy Story Mania will be opening at Disney’s California Adventure, and who knows what else Disney might have planned?

Happy Birthday, Disneyland!
