It appears that there is not enough pixie dust for the ambitious Disney100 celebrations, as Disneyland and Disney World have been cut off from the latest offering commemorating Disney’s centennial.

The Walt Disney Company continues to celebrate 100 years of wonder across the company and Disney Parks worldwide, with exciting new offerings, including new characters debuting at the parks, exclusive nighttime spectaculars and parades, and the divisive premiere of Disney’s Wish (2023), set to bring the centennial festivities to the silver screen.

While each Disney Park has its own characteristic magic and unique offerings, Disney has not been shy when announcing the debut of new experiences and limiting them to a single Disney Resort. This has constantly put the company in a tight spot, with fans demanding more equality between resorts.

The most notorious example of this is the endless competition between Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, and Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida, with fans constantly pointing out the growing gap between the two and begging the company to be “fair to Florida” — a phrase that surfaces at least once with each debuting offering at Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure.

This conversation has been sparked most frequently by the debut of new characters at Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure for the yearly Oogie Boogie Bash exclusive event or limited-time appearances at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge — based on George Lucas’ and Disney’s growing Star Wars universe — or Avengers Campus — inspired by the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

Additionally, Disneyland has become home to exclusive entertainment offerings that have caused envy among Disney World fans, including the nighttime spectacular “The Heartbeat of New Orleans – A Living Mural,” which accompanies an extreme makeover at New Orleans Square inspired by Disney’s The Princess and the Frog (2009), Wondrous Journeys, and World of Color — ONE, with the last two kicking off the Disney100 celebrations at Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure respectively.

Regardless of this constant race, Disneyland and Disney World have been cut off from the latest offering inspired by the Disney100 celebrations.

If fans want to get their hands on the latest Disney100 souvenir, they’ll have to fly to Disneyland Paris, as it will be released exclusively at the Parisian Disney Resort.

The book “Celebrating 100 years of Disney at Disneyland Paris” was released exclusively at Disneyland Paris today, November 16, inviting readers to explore the history of The Walt Disney Company through 100 iconic dates celebrated uniquely at Disneyland Paris, whether in the form of rides and attractions, shows, events, or “special nods.”

The book celebrating Disney’s centennial is a limited release, making it more attractive and exclusive for collectors. It is available at The Storybook Store, Harrington’s Fine China & Porcelains, and The Disney Gallery.

Each copy of “Celebrating 100 years of Disney at Disneyland Paris” is priced at €40 (roughly $43) with no applicable discounts.

While it probably would have been extremely complicated to create a similar book for other Disney Resorts, capturing Disney’s history through celebrations at Disneyland and Disney World would have made a magical souvenir for the young and the young at heart.
