60 years ago today, on a very, very hot day, Disneyland in Anaheim opened! The park offered five lands with 18 attractions! 28,000 people visited Disneyland that day! However, the day wasn’t how it was planned because there were several disasters! Here is something the wonderful Walt Disney said to the large crowd:
“To all that come to this happy place: welcome. Disneyland is your land. Here are relives fond memories of the past… and here youth may savor the challenge of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams and the hard facts which has created America…with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to the all world.”
I can’t believe Disney started with man and a mouse! Disneyland is truly amazing!
