    OMG I totally remember chatting with Fishbulb on the 17th!!! I'm surprised he wasn't skeered off by all the mayhem that day.

    The memory of storming the castle and taking over the carousel with Not Afraid and 90 of our closest MiceChat friends makes me feel all fuzzy inside.

    I wasn't one of the crazy campers (like Morrigoon, Disneyphile and Frodo Potter) but I did get to DCA around 4:30am. Hung out with Mousepod and his wife for most of the day, wow were we all tired!!

    I was there ALL day! we got there at about 5 A.M. and didn't leave until one in the morning on the 18th! It was the best day I ever had in Disneyland! We got to Anaheim on the Fifteenth, and the seventeenth was the first time We saw the fireworks. The day before was the first time My brother saw Fantasmic, and this was his first trip to Disneyland. The whole day was completely special! I was exhausted, but even at the end of the day, after what 19 hours, I did not want to leave. I will never forget that day. Hopefully the 75th and the 100th will be just as great!!

    P.S. I was also there on the 49th, and more than likely will be there on the 51st

    Re: Who went to disneyland on July 17th 2005?

    my best friend, her mom and I all went - and camped out!

    had breakfast with Oscar at Carnation cafe, got
    lots of pictures with characters...but don't
    remember too many rides...
    I know we did the railroad and the story in the opera house...
    but we ended up leaving mid day and coming back for the fireworks...
    just got TOO tired after being up all night...

    I had the pin from the event, my friends were mad they didn't
    get them...

    but I didn't watch the program at the castle... wish I had now.

    definitely the trip of a lifetime

    Re: Who went to disneyland on July 17th 2005?

    We were there. We spent the evening of the 16th at the Orange Grove party, then headed back to the hotel for a few hours sleep, then back to Disneyland at 5am. I was trying to remember how late we stayed, then it dawned on me, we had Fantasmic! seating at 1130pm, so we were there until at least 1am! I think I have finally recouped...
    If you see a cute yellow lab puppy with a yellow cape, WAVE! It might be us! (Or it may be someone else that lurks here!) Thank you for asking before you pet! Next trip, Dec 22-Jan 3rd.

    By chance I was in So Cal as my daughter was playing in a soccer tournament.

    I got to the park before midnight and spent the night in DCA. So much fun. The energy was great. Being "welcomed home" as we walked down Main Street as one of the first to enter the park was the best - will be one of the great memories.

    It was so great that my kids vowed to take me for the 100th anniversary if I am still alive!!!!

    Re: Who went to disneyland on July 17th 2005?

    My very first visit to Disneyland, included being there on July 17, 2005. We were staying at the Hilton ANaheim. We got up about 5 a.m, and arrived at the park about 5: 30 a.m. We were amazed at all the people. We were ushered into DCA, where we got our Gold Mouse Ears and maps.

    I remember that we actually were walking into Disneyland at about 5 minutes before 8 a.m. We walked past thousands, who were waiting in front of the turnstiles. When we approached Main Street, the Cast Members were lined up on both sides of the street "welcoming everyone home". We continued to walk up Main Street and we followed the crowd, right into the pin line. That was our only mistake of the day. We didn't actually get our pins, until about 1 P.M.

    While we were in the pin line, we ate cupcakes, let the kids run and ride some rides, and talked to many other visitors. We joked and laughed and took pictures. A passerby, asked the question, "and what is this line for?" One of the gentleman that we were chatting with, didn't miss a beat and replied, "the bathroom".

    We had a 1:50 PS for Blue Bayou, where I ate some of my spicy hot Jambalaya. I sampled some Monte Cristo sandwich.

    We then spent some time in Fantasyland, riding the teacups, and a few other rides. We made our way back to the Castle, when they were playing the replay of Walt Disney dedicating Disneyland originally in 1955. We spent some time on Main Street listening to the Dapper Dans. We watched the Lowering of the Flag.

    After the evening parade, the rest of my party left the park. The kids were exhausted. "I was staying, I told them, I wanted to see Fantasmic and the fireworks."

    That was the night that I saw Tinker Bell fly over Thunder Mountain Trail. I was making my way back around that way, because it was too crowded the other way. I could hear Julie Andrews speaking. I walked through Fantasyland as the fireworks show was going on. I kept walking from Fantasyland and through Tomorrowland. The fireworks were almost over by this time. I was almost back to the hub, when Tinker Bell flew over and I saw her again. I'll never forget how close she was. Both times, I felt that I could touch her. The moment was so special, my favorite, of my trip.

    I was so glad to be in the park on the 17th of July. It was a very special day. I have my pin, and my memories.

    I bet you saw us. We were the 3rd group in line at the very first turnstile. We were leaning over the barrier there talking to everyone walking into the gates from DCA and we only had 2 families in front of us to go in first. Fun stuff!!
