Disney In Depth: Envisioning Disneyland Resort’s Next 60 Years
Brett Nachman   |  @   |  

Disney In Depth Banner

Disneyland has hit the 60th anniversary mark. Now what? The California theme park, which has belonged to the “Disneyland Resort” for the past 14 years, is in the early stages of a renewal. Though the advancements are not yet visible, the happiest place on earth will no doubt experience nothing short of a transformation over the coming years – especially over the course of the next six decades.
