Disney-owned ABC is celebrating the 60th anniversary of Disneyland this Sunday night with a two-hour special, airing at 8pm (Eastern and Pacific) or 7pm (Central and Mountain) on ABC affiliates across the country. "The Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60" will include taped musical performances from Disneyland and Disney California Adventure, featuring Elton John, Idina Menzel and others, as well as a preview of the park's new Star Wars Land, hosted by Harrison Ford.
Here is a sneak peek at the production of the special, from Disney:
Also this weekend, Universal's corporate sibling, NBC, is filming a special to promote Universal Studios Hollywood. Universal last night sent an email to passholders inviting them to participate in the filming, which happens Saturday. To participate, fans must RSVP to USHsweeps@nbcuni.com by 4pm today. Check-in for the filming starts at 10am at the 5 Towers stage in CityWalk.
No word yet on what the NBC special will include or when it will air, but I think it's a pretty safe bet to assume that the special will include plenty about the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter, which soft opened to guests for the first time last weekend. The new Harry Potter land opens officially on April 7.Tweet
