    D23 Destination D: Disneyland '55 Live Updates

    Hey everyone! Nftysqrt and I are in our seats in the DLH grand ballroom and waiting for the presentations to start! we will do our best to post updates with any interesting news...

    This morning's events include a Welcome from D23 head Steven Clark, a "Weird Disney"" panel, the 55th anniversary of the Mickey Mouse Club (Hosted by Tim O'Day), and "From Quirky To Collectible: The Wonderful World of Disneyland Merchandise". And that should get us to noon...

    I think I'm most excited for this afternoon- Presentations on "the making of Star Tours", the '64 World's Fair, Marty Sklar on Imagineering, and this evening is the "E-Ticket" Concert!

    The voice of disneyland just announced that the event will start "In just 10 minutes!"

    After a brief into from D23 'Geek' Jeff, Steven Clark is on stage. Represented by the 1300 attendees- 39 states and 7 countries.

    He says there will be lots to look forward to-- especially the concert tonight, the presentation of Disneyland USA on the big screen, and the Hunt on Sunday...

    He shared there are only 7 full time employees on the D23 Team.

    Steven's showing fake ads that promote D23 (Bruce from Finding Nemo says "join or die"-- and Mulan "We'll make a fan out of you")

    He showed video of last year's Expo and said there will be fun surprises this weekend.

    Tim O'Day is telling a story about how one new year's eve they had a midget with a voice like baby herman from rodger rabbit who they dressed as 'baby new year' to fly down the tink wire from matterhorn. They did not rehearse and at 5 mins to midnight, they take the guy up there and he decides he doesn't want to go. The stage manager tells the stagehands he has to, so they grab him, lock him in the harness, and throw him off the mountain (wearing a diaper). He flew over fantasyland to kick off the fireworks-- shoutinm obcenities the whole way down

    So the Weird Disney presentation just ended (actually was very interesting, we got great pictures of things like all the character heads used in the park over its history) and now we are starting the MMC reunion- 8 original mouseketeers with Tim O'Day moderating. They're telling audition stories now
