Good Morning! This day in Disney history July 17th, 1955 @ 2:30pm. TV crews, Walt Disney, Art Linkletter, Ronald Reagan, Bob Cummings, the Mouseketeers, Thurl Ravenscroft, California Governor Goodwin J. Knight & over 28,000 guests witness the opening of Disneyland! Opening day had it's fair share of hiccups; Including a food shortage, traffic jam, a gas leak in Fantasyland & even a piece of a window from the Mark Twain falling on the head of a State Senator! Broadcast on ABC, it is the biggest live telecast to date! Happy birthday Disneyland & thank you Walt Disney for persevering! To watch the complete ABC broadcast: 🎬 http://is.gd/3DVWGj 🎥

Remember that thousands of those tickets were counterfeit. Even though it was a day of celebration, it is a day that we don't like to remember due to all of the mishaps and accidents. It will forever be known as Black Sunday. Anyways, Happy Birthday!  - BaseballMickey_CM   5791.4 #12 7-17-12 9:15AM Like  Reply
