Happy 53rd Birthday, Disneyland!

Disneyland celebrated its anniversary with marvelous news, officially announcing that the Sleeping Beauty Castle walk-through will soon be reopened.

Rumors that the castle, which has been closed since 2001, would reopen started just about a year ago, as Disneyland celebrated its 52nd anniversary.

The Register reports that Imagineer Tony Baxter plans for the castle to reopen in time for the holidays: "Before the last leaves of autumn fall, Sleeping Beauty will grace the castle halls."

Previous Disneyland anniversary posts: 2005 and 2006.

I was there today when the news about the castle broke to the various groups (MiceChat, MousePlanet, LaughingPlace) that were there.

Fun day. Just a short rededication ceremony on the steps of the train station at 4:45 but it's always fun to be in on these special events.

I envy your visit today, Irene! I'm so pleased at all the good efforts being made at the park (well, I have my doubts about that new Monorail, grin) compared to the late, unlamented Pressler Era.

Now about those PeopleMovers...

Best wishes,
