    Cool - I can't believe I waited this long to join. I am having so much fun just deciding on which smilies to use . Anyway, we just bought a Digital Rebel camera and I plan on filling the 1GB card several times. After we return, I'll try to post some pics (smaller size of course).

    Re: Have you been since the golden treatment?

    I hate change....don't react well to it, so I was a little nervous about my reaction.

    I don't even reeeeally know what all the changes are, because I've been trying to just keep my reactions pure, without expectation.

    I just want to be delighted, you know??

    I know it seems silly, but we are going to make a game of taking pics of all the 50th ear signs. I'm not really comfortable with change either; I really miss 20K in WDW. But, we still have Tikis to sing about here! and new subs...and hopefully a new peoplemover!

    Re: Have you been since the golden treatment?

    I've gone several times since the golden treatment. And while I naturally fear and despise change, I found it to be overall pretty nice. Not over the top, but still pretty cool.

    Re: Have you been since the golden treatment?

    Having never seen it without the gold, I am going to think, that it always looks that way.

    I went to WDW and thought I would like the gold touches they added to Cinderella Castle, and I did not like it at all. It looked better in pictures, than in real life.

    Disneyland deserves to be decked out in gold. It seems, from what I have read, that most people like the overall look and the complete sprucing up of the park.

    I am sure Disneyland is a beautiful gem.

    I feared tacky.

    It's not tacky. It is quite, surprisingly lovely. Happiness was my response. Surprised happiness.

    Re: Have you been since the golden treatment?

    Good to know! I'm no "gold" fan, I love silver, platinum, white gold....so I have a problem with the "golden" thing. I, too, was afraid it would be tacky.

    I'm looking forward to the first glimpses!!! I have goosebumps right now.

    Barbaraann, you're going to have such a great time!!! I wish I could be seeing Disneyland for the first time through your eyes.

    You will certainly NOT be disappointed.... and keep a tissue handy. Really.

    I agree with NA, I was fearful it was all going to look tacky, and it's all been done very well. It's all become how I see the park now, so it'll take a little getting used to once the park returns to the non-gold version, but it's not to the point where the gold is overwhelming anywhere.

    Oh wow, that's so awesome that you've kept it a surprise. I'm almost jealous. You'll be astounded at the differences.

    Re: Have you been since the golden treatment?

    I was nervous about the treatment, and when I saw the castle for the first time my mouth dropped and my eyes watered up. As we got closer to the castle, the waterworks were flowing. I was so happy, not only because it wasn't tacky, but because I fell in love with it.

    The gold vehicles add that special touch to the park. You will be impressed, not the slightest bit disappointed. And congrats for keeping it a secret for so long!
    ...it's been a long time.

    Re: Have you been since the golden treatment?

    Thanks, guys!!! Now I'm really excited to see everything!!!

    I've also not read anything about Remember. I have no clue really, what it's like, except that the action takes place in a different location than Believe. Very excited about that, too!!
