    Question Favorite things from 50th and One thing that you wished they did?

    Now that the long 50th celebration is over I have a question for all of you. What do you think were the 5 best things that Disney did for Disneyland’s big birthday and what is the one thing that you wished they would’ve done different? I don’t know about you but I liked the “Deam Machine” from the 35th celebration!

    Top 5 things they did right:
    5) Remember...Dreams Come True
    4) The 50th Anniversary Bomber Jacket (Proud owner of said jacket)
    3) The 50th Anniversary DVD and 20% off coupon (which made #4 affordable)
    2) They actually painted the place in preparation for the Happiest Homecoming, proving that the Execs actually do care about DL...
    1) They had an Eisneroscopy...(tough to find a proctologist willing to operate in that area)

    And the one thing I wish they did differently...
    They let Matt get away!

    Disignate one day a year as "Naked Day".

    That would be quite the streak of entertainment. In fact, I can't bare the thought of not having a day like that.

    As for the 50th, I wish they had given away 50 lifetime passes at random that day.

    Things they did right:
    Crowd control on july 17th was awesome. And the TV screen presentations, cupcakes were nice too. I think they missed some opportunities considering the morning crowd but as far as handling a mass amount of people in general at the last second they did a good job of catching up.
    All the ride refurbs we got were awesome as well and I'm looking forward with what's to come.

    I still wish that, for July 17th 2005, the main street electrical parade would've come down the parade route that night at Disneyland.

    1. The park looks really nice!
    2. "Remember" is awesome.
    3. Tommorowland is returning
    4. The Lilly Belle is back.
    5. Welcome to the "Ward Kimball."

    What still needs to be done?

    Put the Rocket Jets back where they belong!

    Yeah, the 50th really ended July 17th, 2006
    (the 51st Birthday).

    BUT technically, the 50th Party isn't over, yet.
    DL has the last date of the 50th Celebration as September 30, 2006,

    Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
    I refuse to answer said question, until said celebration is officially
    concluded by said theme park.

    I WISH THIS CELEBRATION WOULD NEVER
    HAVE TO LEAVE THIS MAGICAL PLACE!!!!!

    1. Remember... Dreams Come True
    2. Walt Disney's Parade of Dreams
    3. The 50 Golden Mickeys all over the park
    4. The facelift of the Disneyland Resort
    5. The fifty Magical Milestone pins (that were thankfully available at WDW)

    Something I wish they did do... a fifty-hour operating day like the parties for the 25th and Star Tours. What a marathon that would have been. Oh well, now they have to do one for the 100th!

    yeah that part kind bugged me, cause i was trying to see if there was ever a 51st pin released and the CM i talked too kept telling me that the 51st anniversary hasnt happeed yet.......so......yeah, it did, it cant not happen. but anyways, 5 things (in no particular order)

    -Remember
    -How clean and nice the park seemed to be when i was there
    -Free hats and cupcakes on the 17th
    -ummm, i kinda liked all the "hidden" 50th mickeys, fun to look for and nicely themed
    -and the last one....i dont know, i was just happy to be there!

    one thing i wish they did, i dont know about that either, i cant really complain about much right now, which is good.

    I wish they'd have televised something on national Television......a two hours special with flashbacks to other monumental events at the park.

    I mean hello? Doesn't Disney OWN ABC? This shouldn't have been a difficult task at all.

    Excellent! In fact, in past years - like 20 years ago or more, the park used to be NICER - touch up paint nightly after closing.....mini rehabs on the days it was closed......

    You have a marvelous idea...
