Disneyland’s 50th : I want to come home!

Am I the only one who’s desperately trying to attend Disneyland’s 50th anniversary celebration on May 4th? Disneyland is supposedly closed on the 4th for renovations and last minute touch-ups. In actuality, it’s a closed party for the media, celebrities, and a select few. I’ve already hit up all my friends that work at the park, and the one eBay auction is already out of my league.

To be honest, I have no idea what’s going on that day. But the fact that I can’t attend only makes me want to go more. Mouseplanet seems to have good coverage of the whole ordeal.

    I would love to be able to go. I would be happy even being able to go on the 5th, even though I’m sure it will be crowded. It sounds like a really fun party.

    From what I have been hearing I’m looking forward to the newly renovated Space Mountian (and the night version according to MousePlanet).

    Disneyland is closed on the fourth, but cast members have been able to view the new fireworks show and the parade in the park after hours. The new show isn’t much of a suprise as I’ve seen parts of it from Angel Stadium after last Wenesday’s Angel Game.

    As for space mountain. It will open July 15th. As for the firework show, the best part occurs over main street and it includes a laser show and simulated cannon blasts to pay hommage to Pirates. So what you see from outside of the park is only the tip of the iceberg. The show is so big that they have to close off half of the park while the show is going on.

    The fourth is just a media event. The best stuff actually happens on the fifth. The global launch ceremony is scheduled for that morning and the parade and firework shows will make their public debut. Also the opera house will feature a short film with steve martin and donald duck showing some early footage of the park.

    To me the 35th was a big deal. I liked the Mardi Gras theme. The 45th was cool as Indy opened. The 50th is not so much about what is new, but is more about the new direction the park, along with the Disney company, will be taking for the next fifty years.
