Sunday Fun: Happy Birthday, Disneyland!

Friday is the 60th birthday of Disneyland. Based on our family's experiences, it really is the "Happiest Place on Earth."

The photos below are of the hosts of the opening day telecast, Art Linkletter, Walt Disney and Ronald Reagan, rehearsing for the big moment. Disney was the quiessential American entrepreneur.

Reagan literally had to climb a fence to get to his first broadcast!

Below is the entire opening day telecast. This was in the era before videotape. It is well worth watching. Enjoy.
