Disneyland's 54th Birthday - July 17th
What a fun day. After one of my most favorite bosses received his much deserved window on Main Street in the morning, some friends and i stayed and made the most of this special day. Marty chose to retire on July 17th after 54 years of service to the Walt Disney Company. He had been our leader at Walt Disney Imagineering for years and I was honored to be able to help him create his digital presentations for over ten of those. After the beautiful ceremony complete with Disney Characters, a huge singing choir and the release of doves, I was even invited to the brunch afterwards at the Napa Rose (the top class restaurant in the Grand Californian), and was stunned to be sitting there with all those legends in the same room. Just wanted to share a few of the photos from playing later that day....i couldn't believe the vibrancy of the colors in the park that day.
