    We have a reservation for Disneyland on October 16th, the actual 100th anniversary of Disney. Is there anything special planned for visitors that day? I've seen plans for other Disney parks but nothing definite for California.

    Hey Brian!

    Welcome to planDisney! How exciting to be in Disneyland Park for the official 100th anniversary of the Walt Disney Company! I can't think of anywhere better to celebrate. 

    Disneyland Resort guests are lucky because we've been enjoying the Disney100 Celebration all year long! From Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway to the return of the "Magic Happens!" parade, we've enjoyed some amazing additions to Disneyland Park this year. I don't see anything specific for October 16 on the entertainment calendar at the moment, but you can watch the schedule for any updates. You should also follow the official Disneyland Instagram account and keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for announcements!

    I do know that some new merchandise is available in the parks and on shopDisney to celebrate the grand finale of the Disney100 Celebration. The new items feature lots of sparkle and fireworks, just like any great nighttime spectacular! Beyond that, Mickey is keeping any additional surprises under his hat for now. The suspense! I'll be keeping my ears open right along with you, even though I won't be lucky enough to be in the parks that day.

    One way to celebrate the official 100th anniversary of the Walt Disney Company is to read up on the history behind the magic! The Disney Parks Blog has some very cool articles that cover some of my favorite topics:

    You can also find some amazing stories from the Walt Disney Archives on the D23 website!

    I'm sorry I don't have more definitive news for you on special activities on October 16, Brian. Whatever the day holds, I hope you'll enjoy being in Disneyland Park to celebrate the people, characters, and stories behind the Happiest Place on Earth!

    Keep moving forward!
