Five years ago, the Disneyland Resort announced the second-largest expansion since the gates first opened in 1955. On the verge of its completion, it excites me to think that the next chapter in our storied history is about to unfold.
As you walk through the parks, hotels and the Downtown Disney District, I hope you sense the pride and enthusiasm building not only within our 22,000 cast members, but also within you, our guests, who have patiently and eagerly traveled along on this journey with us.
Every component of this expansion—from attractions, merchandise and dining locations, to new entertainment and re-imagined hotels— has been designed to craft new pages of our story.
So whether you are looking to whoosh down a monorail waterslide, stroll along Main Street, U.S.A., cruise through Radiator Springs or walk into a 1920s-era Los Angeles, memories await you at the Disneyland Resort in 2012.
Here’s to an exciting year ahead. I look forward to seeing you at the parks soon!
