NEW YORK --From a romaing dinosaur to new rides to an online computer game. Disney will offer new attractions and spectacles to all of its parks this year to mark the 50th anniversary of Disneyland.

The flagship park in Anaheim, Calif., opened in July 1955. A celebration kicks off May 5 with festivities there and at the other Disney parks in Florida, France and Japan, said Jay Rasulo, president of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, at a press conference in Manhattan.

The newest Disney park-- in Hongkong-- will also open this year, Sept. 12. The park offers both classic Disney attractions and regionally inspired design elements, such as extensive gardens.

In Anaheim, the anniversary celebration will include spontaneous block parties, a new fireworks show, a new parade and a new attraction. Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters, in which guests pilot their won ship through an interactive space mission. Summer skies over Disneyland Paris will light up with a new musical fireworks show "Wishes", inspired by a similar show from the Florida park, and Tokyo Disneyland will feature Raging Spirits, a new high-speed reide with special effects.

Walt Disney World in lake Buena Vista, Fla., will feature several attractions imported from the other Disney parks-- the Soarin' ride from Anaheim; the "Cinderellabration", a musical from Tokyo ; and "Lights,Motors,Actions! Extrem Stunt Sow" from Paris. And a new critter will be roaming through the Animal Kingdon--an automatic dinosaurs.

The Disney Cruise Line is marking the annivarsary with its first West Coast itinerary, departing Los Angeles to Mexico for 12 one-week cruises.

An interactive computer game, called Virtual Magic Kingdom, will be launched May 5 on the Disney Web site, www.disney.com. "It's really a vehicle to link people to the them park when they're not at the theme park." said Rasulo. Players will be able to visit the virtual parks, design their own creatins, accumulate points and status and even link their real world Disney experiences to the game. For example, if you buy certain Disney merchandise, you'll be able to type a code number in and have the item show up as a prop in the game.

Finally, a global ad campaign -- launched domestically Jan. 1 but also airing in different languages in France, Japan and Hongkong-- invites people to "come Home" to Disney---wherever destination that might be-- for "the biggest celebration in 50 years".
