    I so want to be there that day, but my sons have baseball games. Was thinking of heading over late afternoon, but afraid of horrible crowds. Plus, it's Wine & Dine Half Marathon night. It's going to be crazy at the resort next weekend!

    Oh, to be there on 10/1 for the Gene Gonda appearance at Uptown . . . the last two years DS has had Mr. Gonda customize villain illustrtaions for him, but we've never been able to meet him in person. How cool - wish we could experience it firsthand.

    Thanks for the info!

    I love the e-ticket merchandise that came out for the anniversary. Got some magnets, a memo pad and even baseball.

    Gene works at AOD at DTD. He is doing an anniversary watch, and he also told me about a haunted mansion watch he is doing. i am not sure what his work schedule is, since I only work 2 days a week, but he is statused at DTD (in case you don't get to see him this weekend).

    The cupcakes are going to be free... Just have to pay $29.99 plus tax if you are an adult and $23.99 plus tax for children just to enter the bakery...

    That is a joke!!! LoL..

    I also ready that a parade of 60 or so characters will be marching down Main Street from the train station to the castle to kick off the celebration at 10:00AM, right before the presentation... Meg "In Over Hear Head" Crofton will be giving a speech...

    BRODIE: Hey, now, be fair. EVERYONE wants Mr. Toad's Wild Ride.

    I'll be there. Going to try to make park open, although that means a 6 AM up-time for me...


    Knew I could count on INTERCOT for some inside scoop on what'll be going on. Not that it would matter -- I just want to be there on 40th birthday!

    Will be tweeting from @mousketracy if you want to live vicariously through me, or send me an @ message in Twitter if you want to meet up. I'll wear my INTERCOT pin, or hat, or shirt, or something...
