    Ready for the Celebration!!!

    The Magic Kingdom is already getting dressed up for the 50th anniversary of Disneyland, even though the event is still three months off. Disney is putting on a mammoth marketing blitz to drum up interest in the celebration, which is stretching
    beyond California to all of its parks worldwide. At WDW, workers began dressing up Cinderella Castle for the occasion last week, attaching gold overlay Monday night after the parks had closed for the day. The dress-up will continue piecemeal through March, with all of the work taking place after hours. The 50th anniversary
    celebrations begin in May. When finished, the castle will be trimmed with gold and "pixie dust" and dotted with golden statues of some of Disney's more popular characters. The decorations will stay up through 2006.

    Well, I'd LOVE to go in June (and July, August....) but not sure I can swing another trip this year. Working on it.....sounds like it will be awesome. Do you think they will have all those rides (Sourin' etc...) and refurbishments (IASW...) done by then?

    For me, IF I can go (and that is a big IF right now) it will be when school gets out for my kids, likely the second week in June.
