Disneyland Park originally opened as simply Disneyland on July 17, 1955.
Did you know?
Disneyland is the only theme park designed under the direct supervision of Walt Disney
Disneyland has the largest cumulative attendance of any single theme park in the world
Construction was partially funded by ABC in exchange for broadcast rights to the TV show Disneyland
Approximately 50,000 people attended the park on the first day it was open to the general public
14 or the original 18 attractions are still running today
I only hope that we don’t lose sight of one thing – that it was all started by a mouse.
