Happy 59th Birthday, Disneyland!

I'm sure most people are waiting until next year to make a big deal about it, but every Disneyland birthday is a big deal for me!  So in honor of the day, here are some #TBT pictures of past Disneyland birthdays.

The first two are from the 30th birthday on July 17, 1985. Boy, that was a busy day at the Park, full of Guests and media! From the Gift Giver Extraordinaire, I received a ton of buttons and a Mickey plush, but no big win. Just like in Vegas.

This shot is from the 50th birthday on July 17, 2005. That was a great celebration!

And lest we forget, today also marks the 25th anniversary of Splash Mountain at Disneyland! Here's a picture of when I was on the opening crew, and what was affectionately called the 'Tim Pig' for some reason.

The Fourth on the Third

For the first time in forever, or at least in our company's 50+ year history, they let us wear shorts to work and they are closing the office early. I predict I will be quite unproductive today. My friends and coworkers have already commented on my wardrobe today. They're just jealous.

In other news, my Grand Jester Studios order arrived the other day, and just in time for the holiday. I'll proudly display my Patriotic Mickey on the mantel!

One last thing. I found this interesting, but I must be out of touch. I don't know most of the songs. Click on the map to see an enlarged version of it.

Mickey and I wish y'all a very Happy Independence Day! (Don't worry. We still love the Brits!)
