Time Lapse...


Sometimes the passage of times can reveal buried treasure; right before your very eyes...

I know a lot of people talk about how long it takes for an attraction to get built by Disney and everyone else, actually. The difference between Walt Disney building Disneyland for 17 million dollars (1950's value) in a year and the Walt Disney Company building a billion dollar park in two or three years can be pretty clear.

There were fewer building codes and regulations back in 1954, there was much less bureaucratic red tape, environmental codes and the technology of the attractions was much less complicated.

Now, let me direct your attention to some priceless footage of Disneyland being built back in 1954. Much of it is time lapse photography that was set up to capture the construction of this amazing destination. Walt himself planned for this filming to historically document it, but most of what you see has not been seen by human eyes in almost half a century.

Enjoy...
