Cast Members Celebrating in Style

Guests of the Disneyland Resort cannot rave enough about the two new nighttime spectaculars that have come to the Disneyland Resort. These nighttime shows are the main events of the Disney100 celebration, honoring 100 years of Walt Disney Animation Studios. The two new shows are “Wondrous Journeys,” a firework and projection show at Disneyland Park that pays homage to every film ever made by Walt Disney Animation Studios, and “World of Color- ONE”, a heartwarming and impactful water and special effects show at Disney California Adventure Park.

Before the public saw the shows, thousands of Disneyland Resort Cast Members were able to experience a preview of the nighttime spectacular. Cast Members filled the Park will joy and magic, all while wearing violet and platinum attire for the celebration. Throughout the night, Cast Members were the Guests of honor. Special cast-exclusive merchandise was given away to some attendees as a special memento for the theme park event.

An Unforgettable Evening

In a video released by Disney Cast Life, Disneyland Resort Cast Members were able to express their gratitude and excitement for the upcoming celebration. Cast Member Brandon Dunbar explains, “Years later, I will look back and be like, ‘Oh my gosh, I was there, and I got to be a part of that!”

Ken Potrock, the President of Disneyland Resort, explains that “We wanted to express our gratitude, so how can we not give opportunities to our Cast Members to see all the great magic that we have in store?”

It is clear that this celebration was an extremely special night for Cast Members, and we hope they all know how appreciated they are on the 100th anniversary of Walt Disney Animation. This event seemed like an incredible way for Cast Members to celebrate Disney 100.
