    Do you think they are going to do anything special on Tuesday? There isn't anything listed on the schedule, but I didn't know. What do you think?

    They're probably going to celebrate Disneyland's Birthday with HUGE celebrations at every single Disney Park...

    Except Disneyland.

    They don't usually do anything special unless it is a special anniversary such as 10 year, 25, 50 etc. The next celebration will probably be on the 75th. The 52nd anniversary is just not that special.

    If it opened on the 18th, then why don't my golden mickey ears say "July 18, 2005???"...

    sorry...but I'm a firm believer in the 17th!!!!!
    Went to a party the other night
    All the ladies were treating me right
    Moving my feet to the disco beat
    How in the world could I keep my seat
    All of a sudden I began to change
    I was on the dance floor acting strange
    Flapping my arms I began to cluck
    Look at me..I'm the disco duck

    I am going to be there :-) Maybe I'll wear my gold ears from the 50th!

    And I agree that the official birthday of the park is July 17, 1955.

    Considering the greed they usually plan something big every 5 years, then they either transplant a Florida ride or they add a float or two to the parade... amazing how many different roles the same floats have played!

    Re: July 17, 2007

    They always have some sort of rededication ceremony every year, and I'm pretty sure there will be a recognition of that Tuesday (7/17), kinda like the one littlecricket taped last year.

    Sorry for the lack of linkage, YouTube can sometimes be a b****.

    You're asking questions that won't get answered without sarcasm......I say just smile and nod, smile and nod.

    Disneyland celebrates the 17th...let those who are in protest celebrate the 18th.....

    YES! We poor unconnected to someone famous could not get in on the 17th, but the next day ... well, that was Lost Boy's 13th birthday and that was the gift from our parents. A trip to Disneyland on the day it opened to the public, July 18, 1955 (I was 6 years old)

    At least you were honest... there were a lot of "fake" tickets on the 17th, I think the attendance was double expected if I remember correctly.

    Re: July 17, 2007

    Lets see, here is OFFICIAL Disney material showing the date is clearly July 18th...

    http://darkbeer.smugmug.com/gallery/1677032

    A Pin sold in 2005 with this on the bottom


    1st Day ticket, July 18, 1955
    And a printed card came with a pin with this question...


    What individual bought Disneyland's first general admission ticket for its public opening on July 18, 1955?
    And the OFFICIAL publication of the park, The Disneyland News from July 1955


    More than 50,000 visitors were attracted to Disneyland on Monday, July 18, when the Park officially opened its gates to the general public.
    Disney did celebrate the 18th for about 10 years, even holding ceremonies and opening rides on that date.

    Then someone in marketing decided to make it the 17th.....

    Sorry, but I don't care if folks want to CHANGE history, it is clear that the park opened to the public on the 18th.

    Heck, why did the special tickets for the 17th say "International Media Preview"??

    When is the official DCA opening day, the first preview in January, or the first day it opened to the general public on February 8th, 2001?

    A Preview is not an official opening.

    Do you think they'll do anything for the 55th since it opened in 1955?
