The castle's ready for the event, which kicks off with a 24-hour party on May 22. But what new features can fans expect at the resort for its 60th birthday?
Fans won't have to wait until the 22nd to get their first present. Over at the Haunted Mansion, the new version of the Hatbox Ghost materializes on May 9. Riders have been keeping their eyes on this new window outside the attic scene, which is expected to be the new home for the Hatbox Ghost.
The newly refurbished Matterhorn Bobsleds, with its enhanced Yeti animatronic, will reopen on the big day, May 22.
But fans will have to wait until July 1 for the return of Peter Pan's Flight, which also will feature newly enhanced effects.
While Disneyland is refurbishing some old favorites for the event, the stars of the Diamond Celebration will be its new nighttime shows, including the "Paint the Night" parade.
