Space Montana-- Cyruses Buyout Disneyland

Monday, October 6, 2008 11:41 AM

Apparently it was for Miley's Sweet 16. 5,000 partygoers got to pay $250 for the event. I see Steve Carell and Cindy Crawford were there. I'm sure they hang out with the Hannah Montana cast all the time.

I didn't post this to news, since it really isn't news.>1=28102

Hopefully it went better than Lindsey Lohan's 20th birthday bash there a few years ago. From what I understand, a lot of the cast members that worked that one were loath to see another celebrity buyout again.

This wasn't really a buyout so much as a staged event for the current "What Will You Celebrate" promotion.

Those $250 tickets were available to the public, and took a few weeks to sell out---the Lohan thing was private.

If companies can buy out a theme park I don't see the problem with celebrities doing it. Back in the early 80s IBM use to have private events in the park. I think it was open something like 8:00pm to 1:00 or 2:00 am. We went every year and it was something to run around that park when it was nearly empty.

We felt like the kings of Disneyland and I have great memories of that.

I find it entertaining that it really wasn't even her 16th birthday yet.. That doesn't roll around til November sometime. That makes it seem more like "What will you celebrate" press attention grabber to me....

If you think it was anything other than that, you're fooling yourself.

It is, notice how it was a week after they announced the celebration?

Rumor has it that you entered the special entry area through Pumba, went through tight security (think metal detectors and taking all sharpies and pens, no autographs), then walked through the tram walk to a holding pen where they were let into the park once it started. After that it was pretty much a ton of dedicated shows where they whored Miley out as much as they could.

At least she wasn't stoned and carying a bottle of vodka... *cough*

I was so surprised that those tickets took a few weeks to sell out. When Hanna Montana came here to Kansas City those tickets sold out in less than 5 minutes. Had they placed those event tickets on Ticket Master it would of sold out just as quick and then we would be seeing most all these event tickets on stub hub for $1000+ a piece (If they aren't already up there).

From what you guys describe here it sounded like a neat event to attend if I had someone to take.

How is it a buy-out when Disney owns Hannah Montana?

^It wasn't.

That being said, the more entertaining aspect is they scheduled this in conflict with Gay Days. Apparently they shifted the red shirts over to DCA and kept it open for longer, but for some reason I just found the whole thing kinda amusing.

My first thought when I read this was the incident with Krushchev (sp) back in the 50's. He wanted to visit DL, but for security reasons wanted the whole park to himself. Walt said no, that he'd be pleased for him to visit, but that he wouldn't dissapoint other guests with a closed park. How similar was this situation? Did guests know you couldn't get in unless you were part of Miley's party?

I have a philisophical question.

When a company owns you (and Jeff, I was wondering the exact same thing)...when they create your personality for you, create your image, dress you, give you friends, give you a persona, ect...

don't you cease to exist?

Not at all similar. Miley's 16th was merely a front to promote the "What Will You Celebrate" thing - it was open to the public for a fee. Anyone could pay to get in. Hell, it isn't even the girl's birthday for another month or two.

Just another example of how good Disney really is. I saw this mentioned on the major news stations and even on a forum like this people have a hard time seeing where the line is blurred.

This was a promotional stunt disguised as a B-Day party.

^^ My take is that Disney owns Hannah Montanna. Miley Cyrus, not so much.

I took my kids to her concert. The difference between the Hannah persona and "just Miley" was noticeable. Hannah is strictly innocent bubble gum pop. Miley has a bit more of an edge to her, to the extent that any 15 year old has an edge.

And yes, the Mouse is one clever Rat.

She should have done this in Florida also, and really had "the best of both worlds," but I guess that Disney in California is land, but at least I tried.

Quoting Hanna Montana songs will earn you zero cool points here. ;) ;)

Friday, October 10, 2008 11:50 AM

I assumed that being here negated all my cool points.

LOL. Funniest post of the day.

I really think referring to cool points at all pretty much sums it up. :)

A good portion of my generation has been brainwashed by this girl, I have a wonderful excuse.
