Disneyland is turning 60! The California theme park, created by Walt Disney in 1955, will celebrate its 60th anniversary Sunday. And according to reports, the bash will be nothing less than a magical event.
The two-hour special will be televised at 8 p.m. EST on ABC and feature some of the biggest names in Hollywood. “Dancing With the Stars” veteran Derek Hough will be the master of ceremonies, which means viewers can anticipate a night full of toe-tapping fun.
“It just reaches into all realms of entertainment,” Hough said of the star-studded event on “Good Morning America.”
But Hough won’t be the only ballroom champion celebrating the magic of Disney. Witney Carson will accompany her fellow pro as the two shake it out on Main Street U.S.A. in an energetic dance segment.
“The number starts out back in the day when Disneyland first opened. Derek and I are outside of the gates and we have the original Disneyland tickets and we’re going into the park and we’re just celebrating this amazing moment of 60 years,” Carson dished in a promo video.
Hough and Carson will celebrate alongside dozens of Disney-loving celebs from Tori Kelly, who is set to perform a duet with Kermit the Frog, “Fuller House” actor John Stamos and Josh Gad. The “Frozen” star will take viewers on a unique tour through the Disneyland park as well as give audiences a look at Walt Disney’s private apartment.
“It’s an opportunity for someone like Josh, who’s a huge Disney fan, to see it and for us to share his excitement,” executive producer Evan Prager said in a trailer for “Disneyland 60.”
Viewers can to tune in to the enchanted, diamond anniversary of Disneyland when “The Wonderful World Of Disney: Disneyland 60” airs on Sunday, Feb. 21, at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
