Disneyland is celebrating its Diamond Anniversary this year and Disney is giving guests a sneak peek at the artwork for the celebration merchandise.
There are three collections of special Diamond Anniversary merchandise and there will be more than 500 special merchandise items including apparel, accessories, home décor, souvenirs, pins, D-Tech, and more.
The Character collection will focus on the characters, attractions, and history of the Disneyland Resort and features a retro palette with a modern twist.
“We wanted the art to speak to the special moments and memories that our fans have shared over the years, but we also wanted to celebrate the bright, amazing future still ahead and the generations of guests that will continue to share in the experience, ” said Disney Design Group Creative Manager Cody Reynolds.
The artwork for the Character Collection is a timeline and each panel represents a 15 year time span, beginning in black and white and transitioning to full color.
