If you know anything at all about me you know I love flip flops and purses. I love to shop period.
I absolutely adore my two daughters Victoria and Christina, I watch way too much TV, and I do think that Disneyland is the Happiest Place on Earth. I dream of living on Main Street in Walt’s old apartment..LOL and I always tease when I die I’m coming back as Disneyland’s PR Director. I love the place. I think it’s no coincidence that it opened just a few days before my birthday and that I will be there next week with my daughters for some early birthday celebrating.
We were talking this morning about the day it opened . 28 thousand people showed up. Half were invited guests the other half bought counterfeit tickets. It was 101 outside..and the asphalt that was only a few hours old was so soft women’s high heels were sinking.
I always laugh when I see people wearing high heels at Disneyland. I of course am in flip flops. There was a plumbers strike so Walt had to pick between running toilets and running water fountains. He went with the toilets which meant everyone had to buy soda from Pepsi which was the opening day sponsor so people thought it was all part of a devious plan. There was a gas leak that closed Fantasyland, Frontierland and Adventure Land and the next day, there were twice as many people and they got in line at 2am.
Now we get in line at 8 am…or at least us crazy ones do!!!
And I can’t wait to be that person next week…
