Happy 59th birthday Disneyland! Logo revealed for 60th


59 years ago, Walt Disney opened what would be the first step in setting the industry standard. Disneyland opened on July 16th 1955 with only 17 attractions, and a hope to be a source of joy and inspiration throughout the world. Almost 60 years later, Disney is the standard that other parks strive to be, all over the world, and families gather from all over the world to visit. Disneyland is the happiest place on earth, and where all your dreams can come true. Being 59, however, hasn’t slowed the park down. Instead of just savoring the moment, Disney took the chance to announce the plans for the 60th celebration, including an all new logo and contest.




The 60th celebration will begin in Spring of 2015 with tons of new features and fun. The details of everything have not yet been revealed, but what has been revealed is an all new contest in which guests could share their Disneyland memories in the hopes of winning the chance to make new memories from the 60 years of Disneyland.


Disneyland is asking for your photos from the park taken through the decades, all six of them. Share your memories on Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #Disneyland60Contest from now until August 27th. Pictures from the 50’s all the way through today can be submitted for a chance to win a trip to California for the start of the 60th celebration in 2015.

Official rules and details can be viewed on the Disney Parks Blog.
