    Actually, I think Disney needs to stop with all the celebrations for now. I'm kind of over them! Or celebrate events that really SHOULD be celebrated. Like the AK 10th. Of course, DLP appears to have a very lengthy 15th going on. When they did the 10th, it was like for a week. The 15th? Like 2 years!

    Not a celebration idea, but just plain old fashioned marketing.

    I agree, a huge celebration for Mickey's 80th birthday would be awesome. I'm talking Oriental Land Company huge! The Tokyo Disney Resort simply knows how to throw celebrations/anniversaries. It would be so cool if an American park could finally do something as awesome as our overseas friends. Mickey Mania themed parades, fireworks and shows customized to each of the parks. And tons of differently dressed Mickeys littered throughout all the parks for great photo ops.

    I think that kind of celebration would get both die-hard fans and families to swarm the parks. Unlike this spreadsheet, pencil-pushing created Year of a Million Dreams fiasco. I've always felt the YOAMD campaign feels like an ol' Publisher's Clearing House commerical.... all it's missing is Ed McMahon greeting you at the gate with magazine subscriptions.

    Yeppers, I agree. There should be a float dedicated to all the different looks of Mickey throughout the year. More like several floats!

    I miss that moniker. Very good idea.

    Your absolutely right! That's a brilliant idea. Do it with class, and not over the top. The Mickey celebration should be just what it is, a "celebration" and not another way for the suits to make more money.

    Again, thanks for all the input!

    They should do something nice for Mickey's 80th birthday... for maybe a month or two. But to drag stuff like that out for a year or more gets real old real fast. I'd like to for once visit the parks when there's isn't some kind of celebration going on.

    Disney should scan these boards for ideas. For-seriously!
    I actually heard a rumor that the YOAMD was going to be integrated into Disney, outside the normal yearly celebrations. They extended it because of good results, and are testing to see how people like it.
    ...I think the glitter and theme is old, but I can't argue if a CM wants to give my party free Fast Passes. I never could turn down free things. : )

    They extended it because it did so poorly the first time around. People were absolutely baffled why CM's were handing out these prizes and a lot would walk away thinking it was just another of those credit card shams (reel you in to sign up for a card with the free stuff). And it's still happening. The only ones who really know what it's all about are those of use who post on boards like these.

    Personally, since the infrastructure exists, I would like for them to continue using the gimmick behind YoaMD long after the celebration has faded. What else are they going to do with those suites=P.

    Oh, and my idea is Disney's Year of Celebrations! It'll be a resurrecting of the celebrations of the past decade and beyond!.........yes....sarcasm......

    First, off I agree. Disney should read all of this for potential ideas. You watch, they are going to launch this big celebration for Mickey's 80th Birthday. I for one would claim copyright infringement! JK. TBB, yeah I heard they were going to intergrate YOAMD into everything. The glitter and tacky decorations should go away but the free stuff, KEEP IT COMING! The only prize I won during the YOAMD was some really cool Tinkerbelle Pins.
    What prizes have you guys won???
