    1111 Days Until Disneyland's 55th Birthday!

    This is a countdown to Disneyland's 55th Birthday!
    Take a look at the last post in this thread to find the
    most recent update.

    DL's 50th Birthday is now a memory, and certainly
    a special day that many of us were able to celebrate
    for over a year, and many of us were able to experience
    the celebration in DL on 7-17-05. That B-Day will
    be tough to beat, at least until DL's 75th and certainly
    DL's 100th will be a spectacular celebration.

    Of course, who know's where any of us will be 23 or
    48 years down the road. So it's a little more reasonable
    to count down to another DL Birthday Celebration and
    it seems a little easier to countdown and make plans for
    DL's 55th. And considering that DL was opened in 1955,
    there is certainly some Disney magic in that number.

    Of course, the countdown to DL's 50th was dominated by
    what special events, parades, attractions, updates,
    merchandise, special 50th observations would be made
    at DL. And even some news surrounded Tomorrowland's
    devasting day, the day Space Mt was closed, due to
    structrual concerns. THAT was the low point of TL in
    it's history. And of course much of the Disney news
    concerned the Roy Disney being forced off the board,
    and the subsequent shareholder revolt of Eisner. Fortunately,
    those days seem so long ago. New management Disney
    and a new Space Mt and the Subs re-openend with Nemo,
    things are certainly going much better than they were
    for the 50th countdown. But it certainly looks like the
    possibility for a great big beautiful tomorrow for the DL
    resort is on the right track.

    Of course, there is still so much work that is necessary for
    Tomorrowland, and even bigger work for DCA. Fortunately,
    Iger and crew are focussed on improving and bringing quality
    back to DL. Just look at DL this year, with the Subs open
    again, AND with infastructure FINALLY restored, along with
    some new Disney magic on Tom Sawyers Pirate Island Laire
    Thing-a-ma-gig Place.(and of course, phase 2 next year)

    And not to be forgot, maybe that 3rd theme park for the
    DL resort won't be too many years (might they be ready
    for an announcement on DL's 55th?????? Of course, only
    the future will tell, but it certainly looks to be an exciting
    and hopeful time for counting down another major milestone
    of DL's 55th. A new dark ride for DCA is coming, and another
    Night show is being attempted for the pier area. And I am
    hoping that DCA's Electric Parade FINALLY gets the updated
    light treatment it so desperately needs (but keep the Baroque
    Synth music, please) - hey they DID do a WONDERFUL job
    on the NEW princess floats for Fantasmic!!!!! DO THAT FOR
    ALL OF THE ELECTRIC PARADE!!!!!

    And of course DL will need a new parade for the
    55th! What will that be like, perhaps they will bring
    back parades themed to the newly released Disney
    movies????? And how about some more surprise
    updates to DL's classic attractions?!?!?!

    I'm hoping to be in DL for it's 55th, in 1,111 days!

    Are you?

    I think the 55th is NOT that important!! I important years are 25th, 50th, 75th, and 100th Anniversary. Probably a new parade will be in the works.

    Just taking life ne day at a time here...taking nothing for granted...I'll be glad to be here for the 52nd...53rd...heck, I give thanks to God for every morning I wake up and put feet on the floor!

    About the topic...agreed, the 75th shoould be the next major one, but they also had marketing campaigns for the 30th and 35th and I think the 40th and 45th...so I wouldn't be surprised if they will have something for the 55th.

    Actually, it's two weeks from today (Tuesday) or Wednesday, depending upon whether you see the 17th of the 18th as opening day (some say it's really the 18th since that it the first day the park opened to the public).

    As for me, like I said...one day at a time, with God's grace.

    I'm kinda hopin' for the 55th to be a non-event so that DCA can have the glory for it's 10th Anniversary. I'm hoping that all the junk that Al has been alluding to get's greenlight and DCA has it's Grand Re-Opening and proves itself a worthy 2nd gate.

    I should(I hope) be there for the 100th, I'll only be 64 when that comes around. And should have around 400,000 pins by that time.

    As I have said before, I hope that Disneyland and I can celebrate our first century together in 2055. But like Barry, I'm glad that I can be there for the 52nd. I've already outlived early predictions, so who knows?
