Happy diamond anniversary, Disneyland!
60 years ago today, Walt Disney opened his first Magic Kingdom in a simple orange grove in Anaheim. Some might say that it was a diamond in the rough. In the same way, there are many things that have happened inside its gates since that have made the Kingdom even more valuable.
In celebration of today, we travel back in time to take a closer look at Disneyland’s history through some valuable items that represent the timelessness of Walt’s dream.
Watch the video above as Justin and I from the Walt Disney Archives examine some of those historical items including an original E-Ticket book and first cast member “name” badge.
