If you read Mouseplanet, please forgive me for asking some of the same questions I asked there.
I have questions that I don't think anyone knows the answers for yet, so feel free to put on your speculation hats and jump in with your predictions.
1. I think Walt Disney World opened in Oct. of 1971, but I'm guessing that Disney will celebrate WDW's 40th Anniversary from January of 2011 through about September (Halloween) of 2012.
When do you think the 40th Anniversary celebrations will begin and end?
2. Do you think there will be a film made for the occasion
like Disneyland's 50th Anniversary movie starring Steve Martin that is still showing?
(question 2.1: If so, who should star in it?
question 2.2: Will there be a special parade or fireworks show?)
3. Will Walt Disney World be spruced up so it sparkles the way Disneyland did for it's 50th Anniversary,
will WDW's 40th be the news peg that makes Kevin Yee an Al Lutz-like go-to guy for the national media's focus on the decrepit-looking missing paint along with articles on how WDW has both grown and declined?
