Disneyland lovers – set your DVRs or plan to be home on Sunday, February 21. ABC will air “The Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60” from 8:00 to 10:00 p.m. EST. The special will feature the “Paint the Night” parade from Disneyland Park and the “World of Color – Celebrate! The Wonderful World of Walt Disney” show from Disney’s California Adventure Park.
ABC also just announced that Elton John will be featured on the special. He will perform a version of “Circle of Life” in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle. He is also scheduled to perform a track from his upcoming album. Other performers will be announced soon.
Fans of technology will be pleased to know that they will be able to utilize the Disney Applause app during the show. The app is designed to deliver an interactive experience to your smartphone. Viewers will also be able to use the Jaunt VR app to experience the performance in virtual reality. ABC Radio has reported that it will seem as though you’ve been transported to Sleeping Beauty Castle for Elton’s performance, and then to Main Street, U.S.A. for a dance performance.
