As I have stated many times before this, in my posts, I will be visiting Disneyland for the "FIRST" time beginning on July 16th and staying until the 22nd.
I am thrilled to death, tickled pink, and besides myself with glee, that I am finally able to visit Disneyland, and the bonus is this:
I will be able to be there on Disneyland's 50th Birthday.
50 years ago, Walt Disney opened the park. I have a video of that, and you can see the joy in his face upon the realization of his dream. They said it wouldn't last, but last it did and I will get to finally see it.
Circumstances of life have kept me away, too long. When the opportunity to travel to California and Disneyland opened up for me, I jumped at the chance. The added bonus is being able to share this with good friends, and my 12 year old grandson.
I can't imagine complaining about that which we have no control over. Things, such as crowds, and media, and ride renovations.
I am finally going to see Disneyland. I am almost 60 years old. It is a lifelong dream. You don't have to give me anything, but a good time. A goodtime includes:
A walk down Main Street.
A smile on my grandson's face.
A glance at the light in Walt's Apartment.
A ride on Dumbo
A glimpse of the castle.
I could go on and on.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion, of course. I tend to view the 50th Anniversary as a celebration for all the Disney fans around the world to gather in all the Disney Parks and have a Fabulous Time. Be kind and courteous to your fellow park visitors. Smile at the cast members. Hum a little tune. OOOH and AAAHH. Life is so short. Disney makes my life so much better.
I can barely wait to finally visit Disneyland. I know I will not be disappointed.
I honestly believe, that if Disneyland were to magically disappear - its magic would still be in the hearts and minds of all who have gone there before me.
I'm coming in 54 days.
