Disneyland – relive 61 years of magic

Disneyland Photo Update: Relive 61 Years of Magic

Disneyland opened on July 17th, 1955. At its opening Walt Disney gave a short speech. A part of that speech was this statement: “To all who come to this happy place: – WELCOME – Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past. . . and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future.”

Here’s a plaque welcoming visitors.


Many, myself included, have passed this plaque. I do believe we did and do find that Disneyland is a source of joy for us as we amble about. Here’s what many saw on the anniversary and what we see at other times we visit.



The Disneyland Ambassador welcomed the crowd and then Walt’s opening speech was played over the loudspeakers.


After the speech and some entertainment confetti rained down on the crowd.


Here are just a few of the dozens and dozens of photos of Disneyland and its treasures that can be seen at




We find Disneyland quite astounding.

Let us know what you think.
