VIDEOS: New look for Mickey Mouse as part of Disneyland’s post-Diamond Celebration changes

in Disneyland Resort, Theme Parks

Mickey Mouse

This past Monday, September 6th, saw the end of Disneyland’s much-heralded 60th anniversary Diamond Celebration. And with it went the beloved Paint the Night parade (for the time being,) the Disneyland Forever fireworks show, and World of Color: Celebrate at Disney California Adventure.

By Tuesday morning, drastic changes had begun happening around Walt’s original Magic Kingdom. Overnight some of the major Diamond Celebration decorations had disappeared and were replaced by Disneyland’s Halloween adornments. And even Mickey Mouse himself got an overhaul.

Now Mickey’s face matches the look of the character we’ve previously seen at the Shanghai Disneyland Resort— somewhat more cartoonish, cheerier, and perhaps more welcoming to guests. Take a look:



You can also revisit the final day of the Diamond Celebration in the videos below, including a montage of the full day’s activities, and a full video of the final performance of the Paint the Night Parade from this era. Enjoy!



Now that the Diamond Celebration is officially over, we can start to look forward to the Halloween season at Disneyland, which starts this Friday, September 9th, and then future changes down the line. It’s still a very exciting time to be a Disneyland fan!
