Disneyland’s 60th Anniversary

Disneyland's 60th Anniversary Celebration

Happy Birthday Disneyland!

Today 60 years ago Disneyland opened it’s Castle gates for the very first time. July 17th, 1955 started it all for amusement parks around the world. Walt Disney’s dream was brought to life, as a place for people of all ages to come and experience a little magic. It paved the way for more parks to be formed but none can quite match the magic that is Disneyland.
