I have to say I applaud Disney for a celebration well done, compared to what happened on May the 5th (ie media day blitz). From the time I got to the parking lot at 7 and arrived at DD, I knew they were well prepared for the day. Lots of suits were walking around and it seemed like everyone in the disney organization was working today. The hats and maps were handed out at the entrance. The park itself did not seem overly crowded at all (especially for a summer day... not sure if they ever stopped admission to the park?), and the media presence for the 10am celebration was 10 times smaller than what it was for the 5th. The screens placed around the park were a nice touch. Didn't see any tempers flare, although I heard of a few stories.
Also I met a bunch of the micechatters and went on the micechat filled merry-go-round. Fun times! Everyone was uber-cool and hopefully I'll get to see people at future meets.
Woohoo, Happy Bday Disneyland! Hope I'm alive to see you turn 100!
