PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

Disneyland is kicking off its Diamond Celebration, and Olivia Fierro was there to give "Good Morning Arizona" viewers a sneak peek at all of the 60th-anniversary fun.

Not only did she don some fabulous sparkly ears (and totally rocked them), Fierro also got to hang with some of Disney's biggest stars -- Donald Duck, Goofy and the one and only Mickey Mouse. Naturally, they all were decked out in their Diamond Celebration finest.

"For 60 years, millions of guests have come here to celebrate their special occasions, and now we're excited to invite everyone to share the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration with us, said Tom Staggs, COO of the Walt Disney Company in a news release. "And, of course, none of this would be possible without our exceptional cast members who bring the magic to life."

That includes the Imagineers, the men and women behind everything that makes Disneyland ... well ... Disneyland. Fierro had the opportunity to talk to one of them about some of the exciting new things in the park.

Disneyland opened on July 17, 1955, and while many things have changed in the park since then, it has all been to fulfill the vision of the original Imagineer. 

"To all who come to this happy place: Welcome. Disneyland is your land," Walt Disney said in his dedication speech. "Here, age relives fond memories of the past, and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams, and the hard facts that have created America, with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world."

Watch the videos above to see what Disneyland has in store for the young and the young at heart and the world-famous destination celebrate 60 years of magic.
