50th Anniversary Touches All Over - Pics

Disneyland is looking so nice for the 50th anniversary, and it's hard to hide all the touches before the grand opening on May 5th. I've included links to articles about some of the 50th celebration.

There are gold accents on Main Street that makes the whole street just glitter and shine.

The Opera House will host the exhibit Disneyland - The First 50 Magical Years, and has been spruced up.




Tinkerbell transforms the gaslamps to gold with her pixie dust.



There are 51 Mickey Mouse 50 Logos throughout Disneyland - some are obvious, and some are subtle. I've taken pics of the more obvious ones -- you can click on some pics for a bigger pic or close-up.

The train station facing Main Street.




Town Hall




Fantasyland






Adventureland



Speaking of Adventureland, I was talking to a CM - David - who is a skipper, and he told me that they are adding new animals to the Jungle Cruise, and the waterfall will be different, too. So this will be a new experience on May 5th.




Frontierland








New Orleans Square




Critter Country




Certain attractions that are considered to be the original ones when Disneyland opened will have a gold car in commemmoration turning gold for the 50th anniversary. Here is a picture of Dumbo - one of the elephants is covered, and will be unveiled on May 5th.




Happiest Faces on Earth

Disneyland has taken thousands of photos submitted by guests, and turned them into collages to create giant pictures. These photo collages all all throughout Disneyland. Click on some of the photos below for a different perspective.










Sleeping Beauty's Castle Will Shine for the 50th

Some of the new Disneyland bricks lead the way to the Disneyland entrance. Here's a pic. Click on it to see a closeup of the brass logo.

Let me add my thanks too! We arrive in 19 days!

Are those bricks still available for purchase? This was the first I had heard of them.

Talking More 50th touches

I recently went to Disneyland (Sunday, May 1st and Tuesday May 3rd) and I took some more pictures of the collages. They are really amazing.

My favorite so far is of the Nautilus from 20,000 Leagues under the sea. They also have ones of Snow White, Buzz Lightyear, Alice in Wonderland, Ariel, Pocahontas, Mulan, Cinderella, the Hitch-hiking ghosts, Hercules, Beauty and the Beast, It's a Small World, Mickey for Mayor, Donald for Mayor, Mickey's Trailer, Malificent as the dragon, Sleeping Beauty, Woody, Jane, and Fantasmic.

If anyone sees a collage that I missed, please let me know.

Also, Mary Jo I have a question. Do you have any clues as to what is going in where the submarine ride used to be? When I went there yesterday, all the water had been drained out.

Tomorrow's the big day. Go 5oth!!!! Hope to see you there.

A local morning news program is at DL on the 4th (as with many other news organizations of course) and I recorded the show from 6:45 until 10am and I am now watching it (monday eve) and all the bits about DL!!!! It is great! I am seeing some of the parade, interviews with special cast members, etc. I love it!!!!!

Go 50th Celebration!
