ICYMI: Disneyland Magical Moment Virtual Broadcast Yesterday
We are in the home stretch Disneyland fans! Both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure will be opening in just three more days and to celebrate Disney held a virtual broadcast last night.
This event was a celebration of all the hard work cast members put into reopening the park and a chance for Disney Chairman Josh D’Amaro to personally thank all of those who will make Friday’s opening a reality!

The live broadcast was also a great introduction to Disneyland President Ken Potrock. Though Ken has been in the job for over a year, it has been a year where the theme parks have remained dark. Potrock tells us in the video that Disney has been officially closed for a whopping 412 days. We are sure Ken will be a much more visible presence to guests as the theme parks once again reopen their gates. Above you’ll see his Instagram post showing off the new theme park nametags which now say “Bringing Back the Magic.”
However, let’s be honest, the real highlight of the Live Stream (which we’ll share in its entirety below) is the chance to see Sleeping Beauty Castle reawaken. You can check it out here. Oh and just a heads up there’s about 5 minutes of a landing screen before the broadcast starts.
Did that make you emotional? It sure did me! During the broadcast the Disneyland Ambassadors also announced that there will be Cast Member soft openings starting at the parks today!! This is a great opportunity for employees to experience all those beloved rides before gates open to the general public on Friday!
Disneyland has also been VERY busy on TikTok recently with reopening sights and sounds and there are a couple of posts that we wanted to share with you! The first is sure to get a song stuck in your head for the rest of the day. Let’s go…

And the second provides us with a first look at the construction in ToonTown of what will be Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway which is scheduled to open in 2023.
