Disneyland Celebrates a Birthday...

Disneyland opened its gates to visitors 59 years ago today! I'm an east coast person, and I rarely have the chance to visit California. A few years back, though, I lucked into a work-related conference that was being held in Anaheim. I took time out to visit the parks, and loved every moment I spent in Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure. Looking back, though, I realize I missed so much. I had a cursory understanding of what the parks were about, but I wasn't nearly as well-versed in the history and background as I am today.

The parks- particularly DCA- seemed to be in a transition time. Cars Land construction was nowhere near complete, World of Color had just recently debuted, Tron was in full swing, and  Ariel's Undersea Adventure was still under wraps. Much has changed in the subsequent years, and I very much look forward to a return trip. Happy Birthday, Disneyland.

  1. Wow! Great photos. I have to admit, If I have a choice, I'll always choose WDW...but if I ever find myself in Anaheim, your pictures do look enticing...
