A Diamond Celebration In Sardineland
It had been three or four years since I had last been to Disneyland. But, on May 22, my mother and I went, just the two of us. That day was the opening day, for lack of a better term, of the park's Diamond celebration. As a part of that, the parks were open for 24 hours, closing at 6 A.M. on May 23 for a few hours.
Growing Up In Disneyland

Disneyland Is Celebrating 60 Years!
Disneyland's has been open for 60 years! July 17th 1955 was opening day. As we do every year we help celebrate Disneyland's Birthday by allowing free access to ALL of our content for 24 hours.
Here is all you have to do:
|Don DeFore's sons, Ron and David, will once again be entertaining attendees of the D23 Expo 2015 August 15 at 10:00am with their historic perspective of Disneyland's early years when their Dad owned Don DeFore's Silver Banjo Barbecue Restaurant in Frontierland. While Don was the president of the Television Academy and sold the first national broadcast of the Emmy Awards to NBC Walt Disney was on the board ... they became friends and the rest is history - - humorously presented by Don's two sons. The DeFore family was even in the Opening Day Parade riding the Autopia cars up Main Street and after spending many days at the park for five years they were perhaps the only kids to ever utter the words, ''gee, do we have to go to Disneyland again?'' What will kids do in the park when they've gotten bored with all the attractions. Come join us to find out!|
The DVD series2015 version is a 17 disc set covering the full history of Disneyland. The discs are available as a box set. The DVD's contain all attraction openings, parades, deaths, injuries, trivia, backstage photos and lots more. To my knowledge no DVD has ever been created with this type of content.
We also offer a Current Attractions Version (5 discs). This has the history of only the
attractions currently operating at Disneyland. The Current Attractions Version
is already in the 17 Disc Box Set, this version is for people that only want
information about the current operating attractions.
Here is an idea to save a bit of money: Upgrade to GOLD then purchase the DVD
Full Box Set. You will save $5.00 over the cost of buying the box set only. You
will get LIFETIME ACCESS to all of our content PLUS our 17 disc Disneyland History Box Set!
($70 Gold Membership + $75 Box Set with Gold membership 50% discount=$145. Full
retail for box set only= $150)
NOTE: Full and Current Attractions Versions are available NOW!!.series2015 DVD Update Download:
We no longer offer individual Chapters for purchase. A Box Set must be purchased.
CHANGES FOR series2015:
We have released our Fourth Release of Disneyland History DVD's (series2015) a few changes we have made:
Chapter 1-7 discs: Remove Deaths and Injuries from each disc.
Allow Chapter 8 disc (2010-Future) to be downloaded
for members that have already purchase series2014 version.
Reduce the Parades Chapter 9 to 1 disc
Move all Deaths and Injuries to a separate disc: Chapter 10
Discontinue the Family Version. By moving the Deaths and Injuries to a separate disc we hope that we will no longer need a separate Family Version. If you would like a Family Version order the full version and throw away the Chapter 10 disc.
The total number of discs will remain at 17 but we will also include a blank disc that can be used to download/create the next updated Chapter 8 disc.
The Box set prices have not changed we are holding the same as they were for series2014
We are also looking at making a Custom Version available by request. You will be able to choose which content the set contains for your Box Set. We have not decided on the price yet.
If you purchased the series2014 box set (the discs
will say series2014 on them) you can now download a series2015 update for free: DVD Update
