    surprise visitor to DL on Sunday, May 1 (Roy Disney)

    Well, not a surprise to Disney, but definitely a pleasant surprise to us. We were wandering around New Orleans Square in the afternoon and noticed that they had some kind of set-up on the balcony of the Disney Gallery, where they have the Fantasmic dessert buffet. There was a camera and lights and reflectors and stuff, all around a man sitting in a chair with his back to the river. I thought he looked kind of familiar but dismissed the notion. Then we looked a bit more, and sure enough, it was him.

    Here's a wider picture: http://www.colddeadfish.net/images/DLR/roy-1.jpg.

    And here's a closer picture: http://www.colddeadfish.net/images/DLR/roy-2.jpg.

    Cool, huh?

    OMG. I noticed that too. However, the people I was with said that it was just more location shooting for the Austrialian film crew. Great shot Cindy!

    Glad to see that Roy still visits the parks. Wonder who was interviewing him?

    Eagles Eyes Cindy!! nice job on the photo. I didn't think he had time to visit the parks.

    Wow! I was in the POTC ride wondering what they were up too up there. I thought they where just documenting the Disney Gallery.

    They also had a shoot at the hub. My wife wanted to hit Indy the moment we got there so I never got close enough to see what was up. Anyone know what they where shooting? Quite a nice setup with a remote boom cam. Not your standerd equipment.

    I think this is great even though their our major differences of opinions on the future of Disney in general its wonderful that a great person like Roy can set those aside and remember the roots

    It was an Australian Morning TV Show, Sunrise. They are broadcasting live from Disneyland to Australia all this week for the 50th.

    They will be filming at different locations all around the park. I will be certainly watching it all week.

    No, it's Roy. He filmed a history of Disneyland for us. Not an Eisney Comment to be seen, which made me happy he can still enjoy the parks.

    Sunrise have gone all out on this one... Just to snub the Today show. Does anybody know about the trash can 'Push' in Tommorowland?

    I've got Roy on Tape. There was also a interview with the parks 'Number 2'... Matt obviously couldn't make it.

    Frankly, I'm shocked that Matt wasn't there...he usually makes a point to be at everything! Who did he send as a replacement? Mike Mendenhall (his Sr. Exec. VP) or Greg Emmer (VP of Operations)?

    A Message from Roy E. Disney...
    Happy Birthday, Disneyland!

    "My wife, Patty, and I paid a visit to Disneyland over the weekend, and I think in the spirit of SaveDisney, we owe everyone there enormous credit for the terrific job they've done over the last year or so to spruce the place up, repaint, refurbish, and generally brighten this amazing 50-year-old lady.

    I think the guests arriving for the big celebration of the Fiftieth Anniversary will be generally delighted with what they find, especially if they haven't been there in a few years.

    Having been present on Opening Day, July 17, 1955, it will be sad for me not to be around for this momentous piece of history, and certainly this July I'll feel a pretty strong pang of nostalgia...but I am certainly encouraged that SaveDisney has clearly played its part in reminding Disneyland's caretakers of their duty to keep the park ever young, and ever fresh!"

    - - Roy

    Thanks, but the credit for the picture has to go to my husband. I just ask him to take the picture and put it up for me to link to.
