When we visited Disneyland early last year, we just had to make a side trip to Hollywood. But we still managed to fit in some Disney as we walked the streets of this historic film mecca.
And on those streets (at least one of them) we found these:
Award of Excellence
Special Achievement for
50 Years of Magical Entertainment
July 14, 2005
It was extra special to find this star as we were enjoying, not only our first visit to California, but also our first visit to Walt’s first theme park, Disneyland.
Two people who did so much for Disney film!
As I was taking these pictures of my favorite stars/stars, some of the locals walked by and laughed at me. I guess they see these every day and so they have become meaningless to them. Or maybe I looked like the typical tourist. Either way, I didn’t care! It gave me joy to remember the contributions of many people, Disney Nouns all, who created some of my favorite cinematic moments.
And this twinkling star caught my eye too:
Tinker Bell helps to celebrate 50 Years of the Hollywood Walk of Fame
1960 – 2010
So if you ever get a chance to visit Hollywood, and you walk the famous streets, don’t forget to look down. You just never know who you’ll meet!
