Happy New Year!

"We Go On!"

Welcome to the new Millennium, or the last year of the old Millennium, take your pick. Did you spend New Year's Eve at a Disney park? Thousands did. The Orlando Sentinel had extensive coverage of the night at Walt Disney World and Disney had a press release with some details. Click here for all the details.

Rebekah and I stayed home and watched live coverage from Disneyland on the Orange County News Channel. Many other LaughingPlace.com staffers were at the park, though, and called us periodically with live reports. All in all, it was a fabulous New Year's Eve. 1999 was a great year for LaughingPlace.com (of course it was, it was the only year for LaughingPlace.com). 2000 promises to be even better. We've got lots of fun stuff in store, some of it coming very soon. But we can't let the cat out of the bag yet, so stay tuned!
