What To Know About 100 Years Of Wonder Celebrations In 2023
Megan Dubois
In 1923, The Walt Disney Company, then known as Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio, was founded. In the almost 100 years since the company’s founding, it’s expanded to be a global empire with parks and resorts around the world, five cruise ships—with three more on the way—and a handful of movie studios under its umbrella.

Starting January 27, 2023, those traveling to the Disneyland Resort can experience the destination in a whole new way as it becomes the heart of the Disney 100 Years of Wonder celebration (Disney100), a Disney-wide celebration highlighting the past, present, and future of the brand. If you’re going to the Disneyland Resort after the festivities kick off, this is what you can expect.

An all-new Mickey’s Toontown is coming

One of the most beloved areas of Disneyland Park is Mickey’s Toontown. While the majority of the theme park land won’t reopen for guests until spring 2023, the new Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway attraction located inside Mickey’s Toontown will open on January 27, just in time for the start of Disney100.

The family-friendly attraction is similar to the ride of the same name at Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios. On the ride, guests hop aboard a train driven by Goofy and get taken into the cartoon world of Mickey Mouse and his pals, only to have a few hijinks ensue. One of the most significant changes to the Disneyland version of the attraction will be the queue—instead of highlighting different Mickey Mouse cartoons, it will be a tribute to the famous mouse with props and other memorabilia from his illustrious career.

The rest of Mickey’s Toontown will reopen on March 8, 2023. The reimagined space will be a great area of the park will be a great spot for families with younger kids to play together. One major addition will be CenTOONial Park, where there will be two interactive play experiences, one of which is a water table for a sensory experience and the other is the dreaming tree where kids can crawl and explore.

Near Goofy’s home is Goofy’s How-To-Play Yard, where there’s a sound garden and a new clubhouse. Inside Goofy’s house, there’s an interactive confectionary machine that looks like something out of a cartoon. And just outside is Donald Duck’s Boat, where children can run around and get some energy out in an all-new splash pad area.

When Toontown reopens, there will be two new eateries: Cafe Daisy, which will serve diner classics at a sidewalk table eatery, and a grab-and-go stand called the Toontown Farmers Market at Good Boy! Grocers. Though not much is known about it yet, there will also be a new family-friendly attraction called Chip ‘n’ Dale’s GADGETcoaster inside the land. Of course, you’ll still be able to meet Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse inside their homes after a quick tour. And Disney fans will be glad to know that Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin will also be reopening.

New nighttime entertainment

Ending the night with fireworks is one of our favorite ways to enjoy a few final moments at Disneyland, and two new nighttime spectaculars are set to light up the sky. When Disney100 kicks off, so will a new nighttime spectacular called “Wondrous Journeys.” The show will feature nods to every Walt Disney Animation Studios film to date, and a heartwarming new song, “It’s Wondrous.” No matter where guests stand around Main Street, U.S.A., Sleeping Beauty Castle—at the facade of “it’s a small world,” or the Rivers of America—they will be surrounded by state-of-the-art projection effects that bring famous Disney characters to life. Most nights the show will just be projections and music, but on select nights (mostly weekends) the show will also include fireworks.

Across the Esplanade at Disney California Adventure, “World of Color—One” will highlight the storytelling legacy of Walt Disney. The show will tell an entirely new story that will show off courageous and inspiring Disney characters, with the show’s concept art displaying characters like Mirabel from Encanto, Mufasa and Simba from The Lion King, and Miguel from Coco. With the new show comes a new original song, “Start a Wave.”

Later in spring, the daytime parade, “Magic Happens,” will glide down Main Street, U.S.A. again. The parade was only shown for a few days before Disneyland closed due to the pandemic, so guests are clamoring to see the parade again. Of course, no celebration is complete without new party outfits. When Disney100 launches, Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and all their pals will don new platinum-inspired costumes.

New merchandise and Sleeping Beauty Castle decorations

There’s nothing like seeing Sleeping Beauty Castle for the first time on a trip to Disneyland. During Disney100, the castle is getting some shimmering decor featuring the three Good Fairies and their pixie dust from Sleeping Beauty. The castle will also be adorned with platinum banners and bunting. On either side of the castle moat, there will be fountains, and at the very top of the center spire, there will be a golden wishing star. Guests will also find the new platinum decor throughout the resort, including the Downtown Disney District and the three Disneyland hotels.

While food and beverage details remain under wraps, the celebrations will offer limited time merchandise: an adorable Mickey Mouse souvenir sipper cup where the main mouse is wearing his platinum suit jacket and shoes. Guests can also take home a new spirit jersey with classic characters on the back in their Disney100 outfits.
