        Well, he did have two big hits that year, so it's not too random for 1985.

          I watched this all the time when I was kid. I was addicted and would still be addicted to this if I still had the VHS tape. Thanks for sharing!

            They should have done something like this for the 50th
            Oo-de-lally, Oo-de-lally
            Golly, what a day

              Excellent! It did promote the parks....but more than that it CELEBRATED THEM......and it was a wonderful piece on TV that year.

              The 30th Was huge - EVERYONE won something - from theme land pins to cars - they had a big tent outside the park into the parking lot and if memory serves me correctly, they were giving away Buicks and Cadillacs and other GM cars....it as a celebration to end all Disneyland Celebrations. Never since the 30th have I seen such an overwelming display of celebration as I did see that year. It was wonderful......

                  Nice. This definitely brought back some memories. It is ashame that Disney doesn't put stuff out like this anymore.
                  Your Life is an occasion, so rise up to it.

                    Oh, man, this special is great. You got E.T. era Drew Barrymore hosting along with so many 80's icons that all revolves around Disneyland. It always puts tears in my eyes, wishing that Disney cared enough about this kind of stuff today. Then again, it was 1985, a time when the theme parks were truly Disney's most profitable source of income as they were spiraling down towards bankruptcy, so it kinda makes sense they would pour money into an entire TV special for it....
