July 17 1955

Disneyland's opening day

Before WWII, Walt Disney dreamed of a magical place where children and parents could have fun together. His dream survived the war and Disney announced his intentions to the world in 1952. He was going to build a "magical kingdom."

Disneyland opened on July 17, 1955, and dispite the heat, 28,154 people attended. Another 90 million watched on ABC-TV.
