Disney Celebrates 100 Years of Magic
Back in 1923 two brothers, Walt and Roy, moved to sunny Los Angeles, here they started the Disney Brothers Studio. Little did they know that 100 years later their company would still be around and be involved with not just cartoons, but live action film and television, including documentaries, multiple theme parks around the world, and more.
To celebrate every Disney Park has decorated in platinum and royal purple, whipped up special dishes, created ultra cute souvenirs, and many of Walt’s earliest cartoon creations have fabulous new outfits to meet Guests in. At Disneyland there is a special exhibit in the Opera House, a stunning new fireworks show, and a delightful (somewhat new) parade, that I was ecstatic to finally see! The parade, “Magic Happens” opened early in 2020, and then, well, we all know what happened in 2020, and it only recently returned, with a colorful collection of floats reflecting many of the studio’s films.
The celebration is slated to last all year (but I won’t be surprised if it goes into next year as well, based on previous anniversary celebrations) so you still have plenty of time to visit one or multiple Disney parks!
Interested in learning more about the rich history of the Walt Disney Company? I recommend the biography Walt Disney: An American Original, available used on ThriftBooks, AbeBooks, and new and used copies on Ebay and Amazon (an affiliate link). In Philadelphia or Munich? There is the Disney100: The Exhibition that looks amazing! We saw part of it and much more at the D23 Expo last year. And remember there is the fabulous Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco (you can check out my visit from several years ago here), and those in the LA area can visit Walt’s Barn for a small dose of Disney history in Griffith Park.
