    I'm at Disneyland! July 17th - Camp out and day updates!

    Hey MiceChatters! To all of you who aren't able to be at Disneyland for the big 50th aniversary, I'm here with updates on my Sidekick phone. No photos will be here. Text only. I will add photos after I get home on Monday.


    So here we go!

    July 17 - 2:25 a.m. Good morning! People are already here waiting in line in the tram area on the Harbor Blvd side of the esplanade. A cast member estimated over 2,000 people here already.
    A fellow camper-outer said that they're wristbanding groups of 500 people at a time and herding groups in. People have already been let in DCA and waiting.

    It is insane. People are snaked through the tram loading areas, and more people are lining up by the minute.

    More information as it becomes available!

    If you have the capabilities, please post pictures!

    I'm sure its way more than 2,000. But that is the figure I got. Nevertheless it is incredible how many people are here. I thought May 5 was insane -- wow... May 5 is going to be NOTHING compared to today.

    We're out of the line that snaked through the tram/buss area. Now they're herding large groups into the ticket booth queues and slowly releasing each group over to DCA. From there, I have no idea what's next.

    Ill try to keep you guys updated if you're interested...

    Entering DCA right now. Its crazy... Lines are being held cause there are people everywhere and they're passing out the free ears, commemorative map, and slapping on wristbands as you enter.
    They're personally handing each person their stuff so you can't get double.

    Apparently the Hollywood backlot has been filled up and now they're lining us all up along the performance corridor. I don't even know where I'm walking to... So far!


    More to come!

    Holy Crap. That many people allready. Let's hope I can even get in the park at 7:30 (and that the M&F isn't full).

    Edit: Oh, what Irony, this is post #555 for me.

    In DCA finally; we're outside Golden Dreams and it's a nice atmosphere. I heard someone complaining about the whole planning. My only qualm is that we walked around all of DCA and ended up pretty much where we started.

    The ears are nice.

    MG where are you?

    Re: I'm at Disneyland! July 17th - Camp out and day updates!

    I just walked into the park! We were paraded and cheered across the esplanade by cast memebrs.
    All down Main Street we were being cheered on, given high-fives. CMs were yelling "wlcome home!" "good morning!" "happy birthday" to everbody coming in. Truly amazing and magical. Matt Ouimet was standing on Main Street at the corner of the emporium. I took a picture with him! I said "thank you so much!" ...I hope he understood I meant "thank you" for what he's done and not just for the picture.

    I'm seated on a curb in the hub in front of a huge screen that's placed in front of the Partners statue in the hub. Two hosts are up in the sky talking to the crowds and starting the day with some sing-a-longs and some jokes and commentary.

    People are continuing to pour in.... More updates later if my Sidekick's battery lasts!

    Happy Birthday!
