    Smile July 17, 2005 - Were You There?

    As the 50th celebration comes to an end, I was just wondering how many people were there on DL's actual 50th anniversary? I drove 800 miles to be there for that special day. I didn't wait in DCA that night, but my parents and I were among the first people to be admitted to DL who weren't in DCA. We arrived around 6:15 am. I waited in line 8 hours for pins and special merchandise. We met a lot of interesting peole in line. It was just a fun day (although the cupcakes did get old after a while...) My dad and I watched the dedication cermony on a screen outside IASW whie my mom held our place in line. All of us saw Walt Disney's rededication speech rebroadcast exactly 50 years later. Even though we were tired, we chose to stay until closing at midnight, just to squeeze in more rides on this happy day.

    Were you in DL on July 17, 2005? What does this day mean for you. Feel free to share your memories of that day as I did.

    Many of us were watching from IASW too.... did you happen to see people with a stuffed raccoon sitting near you?

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    I wasn't there. I never wanted to fight the crowds. I watched alot of it in videos online. I will be making a trip in August and November. Just to see the park's last golden moments. I did make it down to Walt Disney World this past May. I was so proud of myself that in one years time I did Disneyland 6 times and Disney World 1. I live in Salt Lake so that's a big feat for me. I think I've blown many a pay check on 50th merch.

    I was there, and I have one moment, actually it was two, that I will never forget. I was walking along Big Thunder Mountain Trail, and Tinker Bell flew over. I continued walking around the back part of Disneyland and by the time I made my way around Fantasyland and through Tomorrowland, just as I was headed back toward the Hub, Tinker Bell flew over again. She was so close that I could almost touch her. It was unexpected and Magical. I will always remember it, and it's my favorite memory of being there on July 17, 2005.

    That was the most fun I EVER had at Disneyland. Spending the night in DCA and falling asleep the next day while eating my cupcakes will be a memory that stays with me always

    Wow, that's a great memory. I didn't realize that you could see her that well on the Big Thunder Mt. trail.
