I just checked SaveDisney.com, and noticed that Roy Disney left a new message that i thought what pretty sad:
Does anyone else think that it's kind of sad that he's not going to the 50th? Even though he left the company, wouldn't you think he'd still go to the park, even if he had to pay some sort of fee?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!
If anyone does have any pics of Roy at Disneyland this past weekend, please post. I would like to see him reacting to how the park looks now. Mabye Roy riding my favorite ride, The Haunted Mansion! lol
