The Los Angeles Philharmonic, conducted by music and artistic director Gustavo Dudamel, joined the celebration, performing "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" from Walt Disney's acclaimed animated film Fantasia.

Previously announced Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60 participants include Elton John, Josh Gad and Witney Carson.

Walt Disney's legacy lives on through the Disneyland Resort, but even he might not have been able to imagine how big his idea would become at Disneyland and at Disney parks that span the globe. He launched an entirely new concept for family entertainment that remains as relevant today as the day it opened on July 17, 1955 for guests of all ages.

The Disneyland Resort will continue its 60th Anniversary Diamond Celebration through Summer 2016, extending the three spectacular after-dark shows created for the special anniversary – the "Paint the Night" parade, the immersive "Disneyland Forever" fireworks show and the all-new "World of Color–Celebrate! The Wonderful World of Walt Disney." The exciting celebration, which also features sparkling décor, themed food and merchandise, will conclude on Labor Day, Monday, September 5, 2016.
