It’s Disneyland’s 60th anniversary this year, and diamonds are the traditional gift. Some lucky Disneyland fans could win some bling as part of a sweepstakes announced Tuesday.

Disneyland Diamond Days will begin at 6 a.m. May 22 when the park holds its 24-hour party. That’s also when the resort kicks off its sweepstakes.

The theme park has come up with novel prizes to be awarded daily and weekly, starting with 1- and 2-carat diamonds created for Disney.

Some diamond prizes come with a stay in a suite inside the theme park. The Disneyland Dream Suite is above Pirates of the Caribbean and was created as an apartment for Walt Disney.


Other prizes include a crystal Cinderella slipper with a diamond and topaz pendant, a private party in Fantasyland or a tailgate party in Cars Land, or an individual tour of Disneyland or California Adventure.

The resort’s parks have special anniversary festivities planned too: a new “World of Color -- Celebrate!” presentation in California Adventure, and an after-dark neon “Paint the Night” parade in Disneyland, topped with a fresh take on the nightly fireworks show.

If you want to know what you could win, sweepstakes prizes will be announced the week before they’re awarded at Anyone in the U.S., Mexico and most of Canada can enter to win. (You don’t have to purchase a theme park ticket.)
