One of the stranger moments amidst all the hub-bub of Disneyland’s 60th Anniversary celebration today was the 4:45 pm birthday moment at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa.
At around 4:30 pm, Cast Members in the lobby began handing out champagne flutes filled with Martinelli’s Apple Cider. At 4:45, there was a brief moment in which Walt Disney’s opening day dedication was repeated by the Cast Member leading the moment. He spoke briefly about the impact of the park and the pride it brings Cast Members to be part of the magic. Then he invited everyone to sing Happy Birthday to commemorate the moment.
And then all was said and then it was done!
