Disney Parks Blog - Banner Headers, part 9

If you know the date when something started, then you can mark or celebrate its anniversaries. For example, Disneyland’s official opening date is July 17, 1955. Every 17th of July, Disneyland celebrates its birthday with at least special cake at specified restaurants and ribbons or pins for Cast Members which proudly declare “It’s Our Birthday.”

Consider the fact that Walt Disney Pictures has been producing filmed entertainment for over 80 years while introducing hundreds of beloved characters, and Disney has opened 7 theme parks* since Disneyland each premiering new attractions every now and then. All those characters, films, Parks and attractions had starts and all of them have anniversaries. Disney Parks Blog (DPB) will celebrate anniversaries with special one-day sets of themed banner headers and some times accompany them with specially designed Blog logos. They do this for two reasons: 1) the blog format makes it easy to do so with virtually no additional overhead; 2) its fun to do so.

This year Disney had a number of celebration worthy anniversaries.
