The Walt Disney Company will be celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2023. The heart of the celebration will be here at the Disneyland Resort beginning Jan. 27, 2023.
The Disney100 celebration at Disneyland Resort will include many special limited-time offerings taking place around the resort all year long and will kick off with one extremely special new nighttime spectacular: “Wondrous Journeys,” created by Disney Live Entertainment. Today we’re sharing brand new details about this wondrous spectacular!
This all-new nighttime spectacular will celebrate 100 years of Walt Disney Animation Studios in an experience that ignites the dreamer in all of us. “Wondrous Journeys” will feature nods to every film released by the iconic studio over the past century, with music, characters and special moments from favorite stories including “Encanto,” (depicted above), “Hercules,” “The Princess and the Frog,” “Peter Pan,” “Frozen,” “Treasure Planet,” “Big Hero 6,” “Moana,” and more.
After three decades in the motion picture business, Walt Disney created a whole new form of family entertainment in 1955 with the opening of Disneyland park. That’s why Disneyland, Walt’s original park, is the perfect place to debut “Wondrous Journeys.”
The spectacular will also feature an original new song, “It’s Wondrous,” that promises to capture your heart and spark your imagination. Check out this behind-the-scenes look at the recording session for this song, and hear from some of the creative minds behind this new spectacular:
Main Street, U.S.A., Sleeping Beauty Castle, the façade of “it’s a small world” and the Rivers of America will turn into an artist’s canvas and bring stories to life all around you. And on select nights, “Wondrous Journeys” will go even bigger with the addition of sparkling fireworks in the sky above Disneyland park.
“Wondrous Journeys” is sure to uplift and inspire you as you come to the close of a magical day at Disneyland park! We cannot wait to debut “Wondrous Journeys” for all of you very soon, beginning Jan. 27, 2023.
