Today at Destination D: Disneyland '55 (Day Two)

It was another great day today at Destination D: Disneyland '55.

The presentations included "Disneyland: Through the Eye of Television"...

...and retiring Disney Archivist Dave Smith gave a presentation on "Disneyland: The Way We Were":

Composer Richard Sherman came back today just for the fun of it...

...and we listened to an interview with Disneyland President George Kalogridis.

I'm happy to say there was a great deal of campaigning this weekend for the return of the PeopleMover, including a plea straight to the top from those of us at D23...George said that modern-day safety rules are prohibitive but mentioned that at least the track is still there and Tony Baxter's still mulling ideas.

We were pretty tired tonight so we cut out a little early in order to rest up for Sunday's Scavenger Hunt. This evening's events included a showing of DISNEYLAND U.S.A. which I own on DVD.

The D23 website has a full report on the day's events, and MiceChat's live coverage today begins at Page 5 of the live blogging thread. (We sat behind MiceChat bloggers in the morning session and they were taking photos and blogging up a storm!)
