When we walked in, we got a commemorative map, newspaper from the OC Register, a button that says-I was there July 17, 1955. I plan on framing all of them because they are just awesome!
Our plan was to ride Peter Pan but with a 70 minute wait, we skipped it and wandered around finding the photo stops and also got in a quick ride to see the Hatbox Ghost at Haunted Mansion. After, we wandered into tomorrowland were it was SO CROWDED and there was an insane wait for the free cupcake they had. We went to see the last sign in Toontown and found a cupcake area with NO WAIT so we had to stop. The cupcakes were awesome and the icing was buttercream and sugary (no, they weren't gluten free and they made my stomach a bit uneasy but so worth it).
They had members of the Disney family and other Legends there they briefly introduced. After all of that, they had us sing Happy Birthday and characters run out of the castle.
The park was a bit crowded and we were a bit tired after getting up at 5:30 so we got coffee and shopped a bit before walking over to Trader Sam's for a drink and lunch. I had a fantastic margarita and a pulled pork sandwich with sweet potato fries.
We then went back to the park to ride Radiator Springs where ALL of the effects were working for the first time in forever!
Overall, I couldn't have asked for a better day! I would have loved to stay until evening but knew it would get very busy and with a race the next day, I knew leaving early would be for the best.
One other thing-they asked people to dress up (aka Draper Day) so I wore a comfy dress and flats. I definitely should have worn more supportive shoes as my legs were hurting by the end.
Anyone else visit Disneyland on Friday for the 60th?
