I'm pretty sure my friend got a 50th photo album. And don't forget all those gold Mickey ears that were rampant. I have the antennae topper, and magnet.
Have they always had a theme? I don't remember any before the 50th. But,...my Disney fever was born the year of the 50th....so, I didn't keep up with park stuff before then.
Lets not forget the greatest marketing idea they ever had and the flack they took when they ended it... Virtual Magic Kingdom (VMK) was born for the 50th and kept running for a while afterwords, addicting both young and old to buying more merch and visiting more often for those wonderful gotta have them trading cards... Thats how a lot of us came to meet and find micechat for those wonderful spoilers and quest walk throughs... *sigh* good times...

I hope they don't have something for once...
I would like to see a WDW without SOMETHING going on...
I think they kinda thought up the "What will You Celebrate" Idea in a hurry because it's not much.
If they do have a theme, it should be something good.

Sad indeed, and once Universal opens their Harry Potty attraction at Islands of Adventure, Disney may have to continue to offer free admission, since they won't have anything to counter Universal's missile attack. I wish USF was bold enough to hit Disney in the belly while they are down, by bringing the Magical Starlight Parade from UNiversal Japan to Orlando. Ouch SpectroTragic!
Sure ... they'll have our new fabulous prez in HoP ... and they'll still be touting Idol and TSMM as 'new' ... probably EE too knowing the way they market things.
WDW's exec 'leadership' team is screwed in that they can't really extend the whole What Will You Celebrate? deal because it is a national campaign and DL will be dropping it as soon as the year is out as they prep for a major 55th B-Day celebration (with actual MAJOR NEW things). So it will be interesting to see just what goes down.
