This photo is in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney’s The Enchanted Tiki Room, which opened at Disneyland on June 23, 1963.

Listen, all princes and princesses throughout the land – Fantasy Faire is now open at Disneyland park! We’ve been telling you all about the Royal Hall (where Disney princesses will meet guests each day), the Royal Theatre (featuring the tales of “Tangled” and “Beauty and the Beast”) and Maurice’s Treats (serving new delicious delights). Well, today is the day we’ve all been waiting for! Take a look at all the fun and magic waiting for you in the video below.
I remember visiting Disneyland park a few days after Mickey’s Toontown opened back in January 1993. Walking through the gates for the first time and seeing all the bright colors, wonderful shapes and never-ending subject matter, I thought to myself, “What a photographer’s paradise.” I never imagined that one day I would be a Disneyland Resort cast member, let alone a staff photographer. Twenty years later, Mickey’s Toontown still holds that magic for me. Here are a few photos that I hope capture the magic of Mickey’s Toontown after dark for you as they do for me.
Well folks, it’s almost time for “A Salute to the Golden Horseshoe Revue” to ride off into the sunset.
