Today is a big day! Cinco De Mayo but also happy birthday to so many important disney history moments I've been learning about all day!!! May 05, 1987 Disney Dollars Introduced by Disney marketing executive Jack Lindquist!
May 5, 2009: The redone once attraction called the Sun Wheel becomes Mickey's Fun Wheel and opens in Disney California Adventure. It is one of the first aspects of the theme park's $1 billion expansion to be completed.
****But May 5 is birthday to the Biggest Event in Disney Theme Park History on May 5, 2005! For the first time ever, the 10 Disney theme parks around the world will join together for a global celebration to mark the 50th anniversary of Disneyland in Southern California .
“The Happiest Celebration on Earth” pays tribute to Walt Disney's dream of Disneyland, the original park that introduced an entirely new genre of family entertainment that now spans the globe and continues to offer the most visited attractions in the world, drawing 100 million visitors on three continents every year - - and still growing. Beginning this day 2005 and extending for 18 months through 2006, the event rook place in all of the Disney theme parks around the world, with the premiere of exciting new shows and attractions at Disneyland Resort in California, Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, Tokyo Disney Resort in Japan and Disneyland Resort Paris in France and the opening of Hong Kong Disneyland.
At Disneyland , the global celebration becomes a unique chance for the generations of guests who have been touched by the magic of Disneyland to return to where the magic began and relive their fondest memories of park visits past and create new memories with family and friends. specifically this event gave birth to:
