ANAHEIM, Calif., April 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Imagine winning a Disney Diamond or a Cinderella glass slipper, or enjoying a private excursion and dinner in Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park. Those are a few of the exciting prizes that will be awarded to some lucky guests during the Disneyland Diamond Days sweepstakes, part of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration that begins May 22, 2015.
Celebrating the 60th anniversary, Disneyland Diamond Days is an exciting sweepstakes in which daily prizes are awarded to some Disneyland Resort visitors as part of the Diamond Celebration. Each daily prize package for that day includes an individualized tour of the parks with preferred access to select attractions, dining and VIP viewing at some of the dazzling, new nighttime spectaculars. Daily prize winners must be present on the Disneyland Resort premises at the time of entry and at the time of prize redemption in order to be able to enjoy these special experiences, and theme park admission is not necessary to enter or win the sweepstakes.*
In addition to the daily prizes, Disneyland Diamond Days will offer guests a weekly opportunity to win exceptional Disneyland Resort prizes and experiences. Appropriately enough, the most exciting prizes are authentic diamonds, custom-engraved for Disney! One- and two-carat Disney Diamonds will be awarded throughout the celebration, and some will commemorate dates with particular significance to the Disneyland Resort. One-carat Disney Diamonds will even be paired with a stay in the Disneyland Dream Suite.
The Disneyland Dream Suite is a magical, private apartment located above the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction in New Orleans Square inside Disneyland. It was created using unrealized designs originally intended for a private apartment for Walt Disney himself. The Dream Suite is filled with magical decor, elegant furnishings and special details that surprise and delight its guests. An overnight stay, including a view of Disneyland after park guests have departed, is a money-can't-buy experience that will be enjoyed only by a few lucky prize winners.
Weekly prizes include: a clear, crystal Cinderella slipper, adorned with a diamond-and-topaz pendant; plus highly unique experiences that only Disneyland can offer, such as a private party in Fantasyland, a romantic cruise aboard the Mark Twain Riverboat, or a tailgate party in Cars Land. The available prize will vary each week.
Beginning with a fun-filled 24-hour party – 6 a.m. Friday, May 22, to 6 a.m. Saturday, May 23, 2015, local time** – the Diamond Celebration will honor the fun, warmth and forever-young magic of the Disneyland Resort, highlighted by three electrifying new nighttime shows that will take guests into the worlds of Disney stories like never before.
The shows include the moving new presentation "World of Color – Celebrate! The Wonderful World of Walt Disney!" in Disney California Adventure, celebrating Walt Disney's dream of an adventure-filled park where adults and children can have fun together. "World of Color – Celebrate!" features animation, lights, lasers and music, along with award-winning actor Neil Patrick Harris and Mickey Mouse appearing in film sequences on the magical "World of Color" water canvas. In Disneyland, the new after-dark parade "Paint the Night" is a neon river of light coming down Main Street, U.S.A., with Disney characters and dazzling scenes portrayed in more than 1.5 million individually controlled lights. The new "Disneyland Forever" fireworks reinvent the classic Disneyland pyrotechnic show, using projections on the buildings of Main Street, U.S.A., the facade of "it's a small world," the "Fantasmic!" mist screens and the Matterhorn mountain to transform the after-dark experience in the park.
Also special for the Diamond Celebration, musical groups are incorporating dazzling moments in their shows, from Diamond Sing-Alongs with the Dapper Dans to Diamond Dance-Alongs with the Straw Hatters in Disneyland, and with Goofy and Five & Dime in Disney California Adventure. As never before, guests will be invited to become part of this Disneyland Resort musical magic, joining the Disneyland Band in a daily Diamond March-Along up Main Street, U.S.A., or dreaming along with Mickey Mouse as he shares an upbeat, new song with the Red Car News Boys, envisioning his future in the Happiest Place on Earth.
