One week after the launch of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration in Anaheim, Mickey Mouse and the “Happiest Balloon on Earth” arrived in Sacramento to celebrate as the California State Senate and Assembly proclaimed today – June 1, 2015 – as “Disneyland Day!”
Disneyland has been part of the fabric of California for six decades, and marking this special milestone by bringing the magic of Disney to the State Capitol makes it all the more momentous. I’m told seeing the “Happiest Balloon on Earth” float over the Capitol lawn was pretty incredible!
Disneyland Resort’s visit to Sacramento went beyond the Capitol and into the community with a visit to UC Davis Medical Center, where Mickey Mouse and Disney Ambassador Allie Kawamoto visited young patients. It also included a stop in West Sacramento, where 500 volunteers from Disney, KaBOOM! and the city of West Sacramento built Disney’s largest KaBOOM! playground ever. Following the build, Disneyland Resort made surprise donations totaling $10,000 to Club West Teen Center and Yolo County Children’s Alliance.
“Disneyland Day” festivities concluded with a special screening of Disney “Tomorrowland” for sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade students who attend an after-school program at Club West Teen Center in Sacramento.
