To mark the 20th birthday of Disney's Hollywood Studios there was special rope-drop ceremony with the park's Vice President at 7:50am. The main event of the day for guests was to hear from Walt Disney Imagineering executives talk about the early days of the park during panel discussions at 9:00 am and 10:45 am at Premiere Theater (no recording was allowed, so sorry, no video or audio). Guests speakers were, Tom Fitzgerald, Executive Vice President - Senior Creative Executive, Bob Weis, Executive Vice President - Creative and Eric Jacobsen, Senior Vice President - Creative Development. On the merchandise front, a 20th birthday T-shirt was available, and a 20th birthday Times Guide was on hand.
