    Those Pics of Fess Parker and Buddy Ebsen, are unique. I have never seen those before. And YES what great way to celebrate the 50th by looking back at how far Disneyland has come. Thanks Al.

    Lots of love, laughter and fun that day. I felt as if I was living the opening day experience thru the eyes pf Walt, Art Linkletter, Irene Dunne, Fess Parker and Buddy Ebsen. It's amazing that Linkletter and Parker are still alive and kicking up trouble today. Thanks Al.

    Love the photos. As a matter of fact I would like to use them as my desktop background. Could we get links to higher resolution versions? The ones on the website get a little blocky when blown up to desktop size.

    As much as I like the photos, I'd prefer an online archive of Updates. Take out any irrelevant photos, and there should be plenty of room.

    Re: 7/11: A Look Back

    Great photo update, Al. But I'm not so sure that all of those "rehearsing" pics were actually that. There seemed to be way too many people on Main Street for that to be a rehearsal. And the Irene Dunne pic seemed to be right from the opening broadcast, complete with the severely listing Mark Twain.

    Anyway, just a quibble (I'm good at those!). Nice update!
