    Re: The official I AM NOT GOING ON JULY 17th AND AM VERY JEALOUS Thread

    I can't go as I'm saving money for when I can (Aug, 7th). I always planned on being in Disneyland on Sunday, July 17th 2005, but i can't . I have been to every major 5th year birthday since 1980. This is the first I can't go! I hope all who attened have lots of memories to share .

    Re: The official I AM NOT GOING ON JULY 17th AND AM VERY JEALOUS Thread

    I'm not going because I was down in Anahiem for AX on Fourth of July weekend, I have no car, and there's no way I would be able to get my mom, who just got back from Las Vegas, to make yet another 8 hour car ride to Anaheim in a two week period. I got a few breif momentsin the park when I was at con, saw all the new stuff.

    I'd only go to try to participate in any events, merchandies, etc. Also, so I could say I was there.

    I would love to be there today and I'm so jealous of those who are. But I'll be there the end of August so I have that to look forward to.

    Jealous? Waiting 2 hours in line just to get in, wading through a sea of gridlocked crowds, not being able to get to see the dedication ceremony, waiting 2-3 hours in every ride line, all while roasting in 98 degree weather? It'd actually be fun to be there for the official 50th, but it's definitely not worth the hassles of today. I mean, it'd be fun to be able to say "I was there", but there's really no particular reason that today would be so much better than January.

    Those people in line may be excited now, but after 6 hours or less of putting up with the insane crowds today, they won't be enjoying themselves no matter what. MousePlanet is doing constant updates so other than the feeling of being there, there's really no reason that I can see to go. It's a nice milestone to be witness to, but the drawbacks far outweigh the significance of being there today.

    You donated $50 to Pressler and Harris on the week of DL's 50 anniversary?

    Young lady I am quite disappointed in you.

    I am not going because I didn't feel like getting up at 1 and drving down to Anaheim and then camping out until 7 am. I also feared the park would be way too crowded and I just didn't want to deal with it. But if I was there, I would ride Space Mountain and definately catch the 4:45 showing of Walt's speech.

    I tried for two months to save money to go. could'nt do it. You know... too many bills. I guess I have grown up. Wheres Pete Pan when you need em. I'm not that sad. I have the memories of May 5th. That's going to have to be enough for a while. I'll get to go to a mice chat meet up eventually. Have funn all you lucky Mice chatters. Take lots of pics.

    I didn't get to go but my boyfriend is making the Bengal BBQ skewers for us: Chieftain Chicken, Banyan Beef and the asparagus ones (can't remember their names). We also bought cupcakes and little birthday candles...yeah! He's in my book!

    Re: The official I AM NOT GOING ON JULY 17th AND AM VERY JEALOUS Thread

    I was on my way down yesterday. I have already paid for my hotel room and everything and I got sick about 15 minutes from my house. My friend went ahead without me. I was totally bummed that I had to spend the day in bed. Living 300+ miles away meant I couldn't drive down this morning. I had planned on being in DCA around 4 or 4:30 this morning. It makes it a little better that I can at least read what is going on and my friend will tell me all that happened.

    You're not going and you live (at least according to the location on your profile) in Anaheim! THAT IS SICK!! How could you live in Anaheim and not go to Disneyland on the 17th!! You need serious help!! The only reason why I'm not there is because I live in Canada and it would be impossible to get the time off to fly down there. But I hope to be at both the 75th and 100th Anniversary (I'll only be 66 when the 100th comes around) celebrations in 2030 and 2055!! I would do anything to be at the 50th anniversary!

    Why didn't we go? We went on May 5th and the crowds were so bad that we will never go to Disneyland when crowds that big are expected. The crowds, the heat and the long lines just make it impossible for you to enjoy the day.

    I hope all of you that were able to stay up all night and be there had a great time though.

    Re: The official I AM NOT GOING ON JULY 17th AND AM VERY JEALOUS Thread

    There's really not much to be jealous about if you didn't come to the park yesterday.

    It was just a typical summer day in Disneyland only with tv monitors to rebroadcast old DL footage & the morning press event, and a few free hats & cupcakes.

    I was surprised how boring the 50th really was. I think they did a better job promoting May 5th than July 17th.

    Okay time for me to take a shower ! I'm still in my suite at the Bonita Tower w/ innerSpaceman.
