    Question Olympians at DLR?

    Does anyone know if there are plans to "host" a Disneyland Olympian's day? I've been in the Park when they have done this in the past after the Olympic's ended. I was wondering if they were planning to have one for the Beijing Olympic team members. Since they are so many participants from SoCal, I thought they might have something planned.

    Maybe they'll set up a pool and have Michael Phelps swim Main Street again.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    A POOL ON MAIN STREET???!!!

    Gah! That would have been awesome to see! Too bad it wasn't open cause that would have been even better... though I know why it prolly wasn't open. The logistics would have been insane.

    Wow.

    EDIT: Datameister would love to see this pic! He would be able to see all the stuff on the top of the show buildings.

    They built the pool in just under 30 hours. Not a bad construction job really. Frame it, waterproof it, platforms, poles and banners and filled.

    I hope they have an olympians day, that would be pretty neat since I watched almost every moment of the olympics and really got into it. I miss it already.

    Re: Olympians at DLR?

    Did anyone see any "I'm going to Disneyland" commercial during the Olympics?


    In 2004, it was interesting to see them set up the pool on Main Street, and take it down. However it really was a Major barrier into and out of DL.

    How about the mens basketball team shooting hoops in Disneyland.

    It could be part of the YOMD. One would win a photo shot and autograph session with the team.

    I remember back in 1988 they had the Olympic Team Salute down at the railway station. For a number of days they were handing out pins at the entrance. I ended up with about five of these pins. They featured the Disney characters doing the various sports and the Olympic rings. I think there was a pin for each sport. This event was going on at the same time as the State Fair event.

    I miss the Olympics too now. I don't have anything to watch on TV. Oh well, a year and a little bit and then we are hosting in 2010!

    Here's a pic of the event:



    You can see in the photo, each of the athletes got a Mickey shaped medal.
    Here's a photo of the pins:



    Here's a close-up of the Minnie/Gymnastics pin:

    we should get michael phelps to swim around the Nemo Lagoon....wouldnt that be cool. now i know its unsafe but imagine the spectacle it would be. maybe race a sub going full throttle.

    now if rivers of america was cleaner than it is, i'd suggest him race against the best of the best canoes cm's around the island.

    Maybe they could play inside the Matterhorn.
