Disney 100 Years of Wonder
The Walt Disney Company has been celebrating its 100th anniversary with Disney’s 100 Years of Wonder, or Disney100, across Disney Parks & Resorts. October 16, 2023, is the company’s actual 100th birthday.
The 100 Years of Wonder celebration began at Disneyland Resort with “Wondrous Journeys” at Disneyland — currently paused for holiday spectaculars — and “World of Color – ONE” at Disney California Adventure. There is a platinum Mickey statue (which initially had to be fixed because the Walt Disney quote on the base was incorrect) and a platinum Minnie statue in Disneyland.
EPCOT has several new Disney100 offerings. At the Magic Eye Theater, guests can meet Mickey and Minnie in their platinum 100th anniversary outfits. At night, Spaceship Earth lights up with a special Disney100 spectacle of light. There are also Disney100 decorations, a platinum Mickey statue just like the one in Disneyland, and a mural full of Disney characters.
Journey of Water, Inspired by “Moana” has its grand opening on October 16.
For the 100th anniversary, Hong Kong Disneyland unveiled a new Walt and Mickey statue, “Dream Makers,” inspired by the moment Walt dreamed up Disneyland.
Disney’s upcoming animated film “Wish” will honor 100 years of Disney with “legacy nods” to classic films. “Wish,” which uses a mix of 2D and 3D animation, will be released in theaters on November 22. Each song from the film will be released on Wednesdays leading up to the movie’s release.
“Once Upon A Studio” aired on ABC on October 15 after a premiere at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival. The short film also uses a combination of 2D and 3D animation, along with live-action footage. Disney brought back more than 40 voice actors to reprise their roles and pulled from the archives to use dialogue from past actors like Robin Williams as the Genie. “Once Upon a Studio” will play in front of “Wish” when the movie opens in theaters. It is also set to play in theaters before “Wish.”
