Disneyland traditionally switches to its HalloweenTime decorations in early September, so it's likely that the blue and silver bunting and castle decor for Diamond Celebration will come down next September to be replaced immediately by the orange, yellow and brown of HalloweenTime. (There's a mix of both in the park this year.)
What Disney has not announced is whether the end of the Diamond Celebration also will mean the end of the three new nighttime shows that debuted with the start of the anniversary event: the Paint the Night parade, Disneyland Forever fireworks, and World of Color - Celebrate! show.
Update: A Disney representative reached out to let us know that all three shows "will remain with some slight modifications." I've asked about those modifications and will update again if Disney's willing to spill anything on that. And now, back to the rest of the original post:
But Paint the Night seems destined to remain as Disneyland's nighttime parade for years to come, and it's hard to imagine that Disneyland will be in any hurry to replace the wildly popular Disneyland Forever show, either. So it's likely that one or both of those shows will continue after the castle bling, weekly giveaways and 60th anniversary outfits for Mickey and Minnie are gone.

We know that Star Wars Land will begin construction in 2016, but I don't think Disney ever specified when. Based on this, I'm guessing September/October 2016 is very likely going to be the beginning for that project.
