Denise got some great pics that are linked in this thread. But I got some more to share, including some of Otis Day and the Knights.

I got to TTC at about 6:15am, so I sat on a bench and watched the sun come up.

Then I got on the Monorail with 2 other ppl going to Epcot, and it was pretty interesting because instead of the monorail going around Future World and in to the station, it went backwards in to the station first. It was funny because a minute or two after we left the TTC station, we heard "We are approaching the Transportation & Ticket Center, the gateway to the Magic Kingdom..." :D

I got to Epcot just before 7am, and there was a line at the turnstiles, I was probably about 5th or 6th in line. An hour later they let everybody in for the rope drop and over half of the people went in lines for shirts and pins.

This was the crowd at about 8:30. I was on the Seas/Land/Imagination side for rope drop.

As I expected, everybody on my side was going straight for Soarin' and when the CMs from The Seas branched off and headed for The Seas, nobody followed them. I sorta felt bad, and there was a really cute CM:mrgreen:, so I went to The Seas. There was maybe 5 more ppl following me once I left the Soarin' crowd. As I left The Seas, I noticed the new stroller parking was done.

By now it was about 9:15ish and so I headed to the fountain for the Re Dedication Ceremony. It was packed! But I saw and met Ricky Brigante of Inside the Magic here. He was stuck in the back of the crowd as was I.

The last picture was the Press area which was probably 4 to 5 yards behind me. I only took 3 pics of it before the ceremony, during the ceremony I shot video. Then I took these when it was over.

Then I went to the Epcot History Exhibit. Denise posted most of everything there, but I just have to post these, I didn't even see it until I almost left.

As you can see, that last one is now my avatar :). Next I went over to The Land to get a fast pass for Soarin' and get in line for the Conversation with Marty Sklar. I noticed a change to the sign, there was no water and it was blue!

While I was in line for Marty Sklar, I noticed a hidden Mickey on the back of one of the balloons that I only saw in the reflection on a window at Garden Grill.

The Conversation with Marty Sklar was spectacular. He is so inspiring. I saw the 11:30 show and I was near the back of the theater, then rode Soarin' and went back in line for Marty again for the 2:00 show, but this time I was in the second row, right in front of him. I could have gotten first row, but I wanted to be at eye level to show respect while he was talking. Afterwards I went and rode Mission: SPACE, Test Track, Grand Fiesta Tour, and The Maelstrom, then walked over to America and got my seat for Otis Day and the Knights. I was in the third row on the left. Once again, I could have gotten in first row, but I think I wouldn't have gotten as good as pics as I did in the third row.

And with the rest of my camera's battery I shot video which I will post either tomorrow or Thursday. They were great! The best live performance I've seen/heard in a while. Afterwards, I went back to TTC and went home before I got soaked again, it started sprinkling while I was waiting for the bus at TTC.

I am so jealous that you go to see Marty Sklar.

Twice even...

Did they allow cameras in there?

They told everyone to put away their cameras before entering the theater. There was absolutely no recording of any kind allowed. No video, audio or pictures.

I didn't think it was so bad. I really enjoyed the presentation and I wanted to show as much respect as possible to everyone who put it together, especially Marty.
