Disneyland celebrates 62nd anniversary with 62 characters singing ‘Happy Birthday’ and a parade – Orange County Register

Just past noon, the Disneyland Band, along with 62 Disney characters, paraded down Main Street U.S.A. to the steps of the Main Street Station to honor Disneyland’s 62nd anniversary on Monday, July 17.

They were joined by the Dapper Dans barbershop quartet and Disneyland Ambassador Mikey Trujillo for the celebration.

As has become tradition, the recording of Walt Disney’s dedication speech on July 17, 1955, was played over the loudspeakers, then the crowd in Town Square was asked to join in singing “Happy Birthday” to Disneyland.

Some of the Disney characters participating included Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, Pluto, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the “Aladdin” Genie and many more.

At the end of the celebration, white doves were released and confetti shot off before everyone marched away.
