People and Places: Disneyland U.S.A

To keep the festivities going in honor of Disneyland’s 60th Anniversary, I thought this video would be the perfect thing to share. I stumbled upon this on Disney Avenue‘s blog, and it’s amazing!

The Disneyland, U.S.A video was recorded in 1956, a year after the park had opened. It is a featurette that is part of a series called People and Places that Walt Disney Productions produced. Now, it has become a wonderful time capsule for us all to enjoy. Take a look how people dressed, and notice the lack of selfie-sticks and duck faces (he he). Experience the vintage feel of the park while the narrator takes you through the attractions. The 42-minute video allows us to take a leisurely stroll through the way the “World” looked through Disney’s eyes. Fabulous!

Disney Avenue explains that this video is on the Walt Disney Treasures – Disneyland: Secrets, Stories & Magic DVD set. Guess I’ll be ordering that next! 🙂
