The Walt Disney Company celebrated a lot of milestones recently. Walt Disney World celebrated its 50th anniversary, with the entire resort getting a little makeover and special, limited-time events for guests to enjoy. Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and EPCOT all got special experiences that guests could discover if they visited during the celebration.

Disney also is currently celebrating 100 years of magic with its Disney100 celebration.

The centennial anniversary of Disney has included a wide of activities, merchandise, and attractions so far. Disney100 included the re-release of some of the world’s most popular and beloved animated and live-action films in theaters. However, all good things must come to an end, and we’re nearing the final months of this spectacular celebration. Disney100 will run throughout 2023 and will end in the first quarter of 2024.

One of the coolest parts about this celebration in Disneyland involved a new statue of Mickey Mouse himself. This new Mickey Mouse display was set up as part of the 100-year anniversary at Main Street U.S.A. The statue caused a slight controversy when it was revealed earlier this year due to it misquoting Walt Disney himself.

However, this statue has disappeared, possibly forever. As you can see in the photo below, the Mickey Mouse 100 statue is now gone:

The Disneyland Resort is filled with stunning new experiences for guests to enjoy. Avengers Campus is the newest thing to do at Disney California Adventure, featuring everyone’s favorite Marvel characters like Thor, Iron Man, Loki, Spider-Man, Black Widow, and many more.

This land features two rides, Web Slingers: A Spider-Man Adventure and Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!. Avengers Campus can also be found at the Disneyland Paris Resort in Chessy, France. The newest ride at Disneyland is actually a copy of a ride found at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Minnie & Mickey’s Runaway Railway. This trackless dark ride first opened at Walt Disney World in 2019 and eventually made its way to the West Coast in early 2023. This was incredibly fitting, as Disneyland was celebrating 100 years of magic.
