Happy Birthday, Disneyland!
On this day in 1955 Walt Disney opened his version of a theme park...
And in doing so he reinvented it. It was the first, it was original and unheard of. Disneyland became the park that all others would emulate. Doesn't look too bad for 52 years old, does it? Fear not, it's got a great future... more on that tomorrow.
Through most of his life Walt struggled to get money for his projects, from shorts to films... after Disneyland opened he never again had trouble getting financial backing for anything.
