This past Friday, July 17th, Disneyland celebrated it’s 60th birthday. I must admit Disneyland keeps getting better with age and goes to show it’s forever young.
I decided to camp over night with my friend Kaitlyne. We got in line about 10:20 pm. We were moved to three different location throughout the night. Finally we got to go in. I was in the first 100. We all received buttons. This was a bit disappointing since the 24 hour party received ears. Now the actually 60th should have received ears as the 50th did. I still have my 50th ears. The date is embroidered on the back.
I decided to Disneybound as the old Orange Grove of Anaheim. I got inspired by a clip from the fireworks in which orange groves are projected on the side of the building and they mention how before there was Disneyland there were the Orange Groves.
The dress is from Pinup girl clothing. The Orange ears hat is from Hat and mouse and the Mickey ballon purse from Sarah’s cutesy skirts.
My friend was lucky to secure a reservation on the Lily Belle. If you haven’t heard what the Lilly Belle is, it’s a beatiful presidential train car that isn’t always running and has limited reservation spots. If you get to disneyland first thing when it opens run to the train station and try to grab a reservation. You won’t be disappointed.
We got to sit where Orlando Bloom and Johnny Depp have sat. Best thing of riding the Lily Bell besides being In a beautiful train car, you also get a commemorative ticket to remember the special day.
For the rest of the day we walked around and enjoyed the sites and took lots of pictures.
Free cupcakes were giving out to celebrate the day.
Richard Sherman played Feed the Birds on the piano. How awesome.
Took a picture with the Dapper Dammes.
And some Dapper Dans.
It was a fun day!!
Best part I later found out that I was mentioned in Dinsey Style as one of the favorite outfits of the 60ths. Here is the article which also features so many other fabulous outfits. Favorite outfits of the 60th
Hope everyone is having a great 4th whether you’re in the States or not 🙂 I decided to celebrate America’s birthday by Disneybounding as Captain America, the girly version. The dress is from Hot Topic Her Universe clothing line. My Avengers pin is from disney. A cute bow I bought at a geek fair and ballon purse from Sarahs curtesy skirts.
I headed to Disneyland to get a picture with the famous super hero. He definitely approved of my outfit.
I even got one with Thor don’t ever tell him that Loki is your favorite He was offended. I told him I did like him…”Umm you have a good body” lol
Oh and red, white and blue desserts were had. A 60th celebration cupcake (lemon with a raspberry filling) and a Raspberry Rose macaroon fillies with whole raspberries. Mmm so yummy.
After dessert I got to see my favorite mainstreet performers the Dapper Dans.
I was so happy I got a picture with them. I love their red, white, and blue dapper outfits.
It was a great day even though I was there for just a bit. I did manage to get some sparkly 60th ears. I love that they are blue. I love blue.
It was a great way to start the 4th. Do you dress up for the 4th? Do you have a favorite superhero.
Hope everyone had a great fourth!
