Did you make it to DLR for 50 days for the 50th celebration from May 5, 2005 through September 30th, 2006?

I think we fell just short and atteneded about 45-46 days (not bad for living in Phoenix). i know we went 37 days in 2005, but 8 of those were in February and March so they don't count. this year we've been about 16-17 days in February, June and July.

We have 6 days (two trips planned for HalloweenTime) upcoming, plus a Christmas trip, so 2006 has been a good year too, considering we finally got back to No Cal and San Diego.

So did you get to DLR 50 times during the 50th?

Not even close! I think I made it 11 days. But, I can't complain. That was 3 trips in the last year- not bad coming from Seattle!

I made it for a total of 23 days - but that's good for me - coming from the Seattle area too...that was three trips...

but I was probably in the park from opening to closing all of those days - with VERY few exceptions

I know I made at least that many visits. I have summers off - so I was able to get in quite a few visits for the 50th.

Last July alone I was there almost 20 days!!!! Lots of family and friends visiting me last July and wanting to go to the park - LOL

Not quite. We were there in March for MouseAdventure (http://mouseplanet.com/mouseadventure/ma050315.htm), July for the 50th birthday (3 days), a weekend in late September (2 days), October for MouseAdventure (http://mouseplanet.com/mouseadventure/ma051016.htm) (4 days), a weekend for our anniversary in November (3 days), a weekend for Christmas in December (2 days), a weekend in March of this year (2 days), April for MouseAdventure (http://www.mouseplanet.com/articles.php?art=mm060503as), and July for the 51st birthday (3 days). That comes to 19 days over almost 16 months. Not too bad for over 400 miles away.

Oh I did, and a lot more.... my guess about 200 days (maybe a bit less) during the 17 months.

Was in the park when it was closed to the public on May 4th, 2005 (6 AM).

Was in the park before opening on May 5th, 2005 for the kickoff.

Stood in line at DCA overnight for the opening on July 17th, 2005

Was at the park July 18th, 2005 to celebrate the REAL opening of the park 50 years earlier.

Was at the park July 17th, 2006

Was at the park July 18th,2006; the actual 51st Birthday of Disneyland

And was at the park until after midnight on Saturday, September 30th, so was in the park for the official end of the celebration.....

And each and every one of these events were also attended by my girlfriend Lisa, who probably was in the park at least 120 days....

So we have 2 qualifiers....

Finally found some time to find this out for myself. I visited Disneyland at least 35 days last year, including May 5 & July 17, and 20 days this year including Jan 1, July 16 (for a one-year reunion of new friends made at last year's 50th; I hadda work this July 17) and thru my recent September visits...so I'm pleased to say it's around "55" visits for me. :)

10ish days for me I think, maybe a little less...not bad really!
