I know we’ve all had our attention on Disney California Adventure these past couple of weeks, but today, we must turn our attention across the Esplanade.
Today, July 17, marks the 57th birthday of Walt Disney’s Disneyland. Think about that.
Walt’s Disneyland. The only Disney Park that he oversaw and saw completed. The one the world turned to in awe when he unveiled it 57 years ago today.
The one. The only. The original Disneyland.
And it always will be.
Here’s to 57 more years!
