    We want Roy!

    Ok, you know that we always wonder if our voice is heard. What say we start a letter writing campaign, to have Roy read the dedication on the 17th. First of all, is anyone as excited about that possibility as me? I've already sent an e-mail to Roy expressing my desire for him to create some real Disney magic. Am I dreaming, or can we make this happen? I will do 99% of the work, if you tell me what to do. As creative as this board is I know we can pull this off. Let me know what you think.

    I believe Roy is not going on the 17th of July to keep from making waves and to express his concern over the choice of Iger as CEO after Eisner is booted. Roy does touch on the fact that he would like to be there at this link:

    On the upside though that letter to the Save Disney public is much more positive than many he has written when it comes to the disneyland staff. Too bad he can't be there. I imagine he will be there either soon before or soon after though but not in an official capacity.

    Someone at MousePlanet said Roy wont be there because this is the last year he plans on sailing during an event that goes on at that time. But I still really hope he changes his mind and reads walt's opening day speech.

    I hope so, too. What's a 50th anniversary without any DISNEYs?
    Well, light travels from the sun. Then, bounces off of our planet, and back into our eyes so we can perceive color. My body can intercept that light and dance around on it!

    Diane Is The One

    BIG DEAL. If you really want Disney, get the girl who was there with her father, Diane Disney. Walt's daughter rode home in the car those opening days and has great stories. I love Roy, but the real connection is Diane. I want her to read her Dad's dedication. She'd have the whol eplace crying..Up with women!!!

    Duh! Why wasn't it Diane from the start? Doesn't she bair the name Disney, Diane Disney Miller is her name. Her husband worked at the company after Walt had died. Walt said he was a good guy, and wanted him to take over. Wouldn't you think that Diane and her Husband would go and read the dedication? Why Eisner?

    Any Disney? My first vote would be for Roy. Second would be for Diane. But there is another... What about Walt's namesake, Walter Elias Disney Miller, Walt's grandson? I know nothing about him, but he is younger and had the name. My concern is that once Roy and Diane pass away, there will not be a Disney family member to look after Walt's legacy.

    Diane is more of a possibility than Roy as she has stayed "above the fray" in all of the recent controversy. Just goes to show how much Roy has sacrificed for his love of the Disney company.

    How about Abby, Roy's daughter? I have the utmost respect for her... I don't know if she is willing to do it... But my respect would not dwindle if she decided not to...

    Well, then it's going to have to be a Disney, or else it just isn't the same. Walt's gone, but I would relish a Disney doing the dedication. I'll e-mail again today, and everyday until I get a response one way or another.

    It might be Iger... Eisner would be making a farewell speach, after all I believe he is retiring right around then?!?!?!
