This past Friday, July 17th, Disneyland celebrated it’s 60th birthday. I must admit Disneyland keeps getting better with age and goes to show it’s forever young.
I decided to camp over night with my friend Kaitlyne. We got in line about 10:20 pm. We were moved to three different location throughout the night. Finally we got to go in. I was in the first 100. We all received buttons. This was a bit disappointing since the 24 hour party received ears. Now the actually 60th should have received ears as the 50th did. I still have my 50th ears. The date is embroidered on the back.
I decided to Disneybound as the old Orange Grove of Anaheim. I got inspired by a clip from the fireworks in which orange groves are projected on the side of the building and they mention how before there was Disneyland there were the Orange Groves.
My friend was lucky to secure a reservation on the Lily Belle. If you haven’t heard what the Lilly Belle is, it’s a beatiful presidential train car that isn’t always running and has limited reservation spots. If you get to disneyland first thing when it opens run to the train station and try to grab a reservation. You won’t be disappointed.
It was a fun day!!
Best part I later found out that I was mentioned in Dinsey Style as one of the favorite outfits of the 60ths. Here is the article which also features so many other fabulous outfits. Favorite outfits of the 60th
