Walt Disney, one of the ultimate dreamers, used his uninhibited imagination and determination to create what became the springboard for all of the Walt Disney Company’s spirited and wildly successful creativity that followed — his crowning achievement: Disneyland. The Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60, airing SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 21 8|7c on ABC, will celebrate the inventiveness and inspiration of Disney’s big, bold creation with a glamorous, star-studded Diamond Anniversary event.

Acclaimed actor Harrison Ford, who portrays Han Solo in the Star Wars film franchise, will give viewers an exclusive preview of Star Wars-themed lands being developed at Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts. New details of the ambitious plans to bring Star Wars to life at both resorts will be revealed during the show, with Master of Ceremonies Derek Hough.

Hough, a six-time Dancing with the Stars champion, will be joined by past champion Witney Carson as the pair leads a team of dancers down Main Street U.S.A. to an enormously popular Oscar®-nominated song from a classic Disney animated motion picture.

Music legend Sir Elton John will perform two sensational songs in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland Park, the Oscar®-nominated song “Circle of Life,” from Disney’s The Lion King, and the new song, “Wonderful Crazy Night,” from his upcoming album.

The Los Angeles Philharmonic, conducted by music and artistic director Gustavo Dudamel, will join the celebration performing “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” from Walt Disney’s acclaimed animated film Fantasia.

The special takes place in the heart of Hollywood at the Dolby Theater and throughout some of the most iconic locations at Disneyland Park, including Sleeping Beauty Castle and Main Street U.S.A., and Cars Land, a themed area of Disney California Adventure Park.

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale

   by Elly Collins & Caroline Collins

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???

We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program (Fall 2013/Spring 2014) and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.

We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney. Available now at in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
