Disneyland Turns a Nifty 50

In case you haven't heard, or you're blind to all those glittering "Welcome Home" billboards posted around town, Disneyland turns 50 years old today. Or at least, the corporate behemouth that birthed the happiest place on earth has opted to celebrate the anniversary today.
Notebook LA has all the dirt, as its owner attended the press preview yesterday. We'd be lying if we said we're sure looking forward to the new "Walt Disney's Parade of Dreams," which made its debut yesterday. To make things extra special, Disneyland has placed the icon "50" on the most obvious "hidden Mickeys" placed around the park.
