I went with my son yesterday so it was a bit difficult to get a good place to watch the opening ceremony even though we got there at 6:50am. I sat on the wrong side of the street (it was to early for my brain to function, lol) and and wasn't able to see the main stage well but had a good place for the parade afterwards of all the characters and dancers. Let me tell you that maybe I am easily impressed but to me it was just amazing. The people gave their speeches and then Mickey appears at the top of the castle. He then goes inside comes out at the bottom and is followed by a flood of characters and what must have been every performer from e-productions. I had started video taping and just stopped to watch because it was just so incredible to see all those people in front of the castle! I did videotape the parade after though and to me it was absolutely fantastic and looking at all the costumes from previous years so I hope you guys can enjoy it too.
