Disneyland is going to have its 60th anniversary on July 17, 2015, and it has announced (via D23) that it’ll be doing the Diamond Celebration. However, you don’t have to wait that long for the celebration to kick in. The Happiest Place on Earth will be celebrating for most of the year starting May 22nd, and it will include the Disneyland Forever Fireworks Spectacular, Paint the Night Parade on Main Street, a new version of World of Color at Disney California Adventure, and more.

Check out some of the new things for the Diamond Celebration.

Disney California Adventure will be featuring a new edition of World of Color. Guests will see many of Disney’s projects, presented with animated and live-action footage, fountains, lasers, special effects, and music.

Even though we’re not going to be seeing the Main Street Electrical Parade, this one still looks gorgeous. The Paint the Night Parade is a nighttime parade with floats, costumes, special effects, and over 1.5 million LED lights. Mickey Mouse will be the host as he paints the night with help from Tinker Bell. It will include characters from Monsters, Inc., Cars, Toy Story, Frozen, and more.

It’s time for a new Fireworks show at Disneyland, and we’ll be getting it with the Disneyland Forever Fireworks Spectacular. This will feature the largest installation of projection mapping technology inside the Disney parks and special effects and we’ll get to see it throughout Disneyland. Two new songs will be featured including “Kiss Goodnight” by songwriter Richard Sherman (Mary Poppins).

Check out the 11:18 mark to see a teaser of the Diamond Celebration. (Yes, I got goosebumps watching that tribute to Tangled’s lantern scene.)

I’ll have to get an annual pass now.
