Today marks 5 years since the launch of Disneyland News Today. DLNT was formed on February 8th, 2008, just as many projects began in the huge expansion of Disney California Adventure. Our mission was to follow that expansion from start to finish, tackling what was arguably the most exciting project in Disney history. From the opening of Toy Story Midway Mania, to the debut of World of Color, to the first side-by-side race through Radiator Springs, we covered it all. We were taken to new heights aboard Mickey’s Fun Wheel, took a swing in a Silly Symphony, and played with our PIXAR pals.
In that time, we also saw the original Disney Park grow, evolve, and change in many ways. We were there for the return of the Sleeping Beauty Castle Walkthrough and Captain EO. Our adventures continued on Star Tours, Main Street got Soundsational, and we even grabbed the first bite at the Jolly Holiday Bakery. Best of all, there is more excitement to come. Soon we’ll meet our favorite princesses and find a magical map with Mickey.
It has been a journey as unpredictable as an adventure through the original Magic Kingdom over the last 5 years, and we are happy you were there to take that journey with u.. However, as Walt Disney once said, “We’re just getting started!”
