A quick look at the January 11th Grand Opening of Downtown Disney. A more detailed look will follow soon.

On the night of January 11th Downtown Disney at the The Disneyland Resort was officially opened with a charity event for the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. We'll have more coverage of this event and the opening ceremony next week, but today we wanted to show some of the images from the evening.

The event started with a Red Carpet for a few celebrities. Following that was the opening ceremony featuring speeches by Paul Pressler, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, Robert Iger, President and Chief Operating Officer of the Walt Disney Company, Sylvester Stallone and his wife Jennifer Flavin Stallone, Paul Glaser, actor and widower of Elizabeth Glaser and Michael Eisner, Chief Executive Officer of the Walt Disney Company. Next was a big party for the next few hours as each of the shops and restaurants at Downtown Disney had food samples, entertainment and other fun stuff.
