Opening Day at Disneyland

Just an incredible thread over at Miceage. This post has a dozen or so photos from the opening day at Disneyland. As expected, some show Walt Disney beaming at the crowds. Others show areas of the park from angles you wouldn't expect.

It's easy to think the Imagineers knew exactly what they were doing, and the end result is terrific, but these photos are a great reminder that Disneyland was unprecedented, and therefore, cutting edge from the beginning. Fascinating for all lovers of Walt's Original Kingdom. Just gotta see a cool retro- Tomorrowland and a brand new Fantasyland from the air...

Go here.
