  • Request - Pictures of Disneyland on Opening Day

    My sister asked me to help with her school project, and she needs some photos of Disneyland that were taken on opening day, July 17th, 1955. I figured if there's one place that can fulfill that request, it's here. :ap: If those inclined to help could post them in this thread, they would be interesting to look at for the rest of us too.

    Specifically she asked me if Mickey Mouse was on hand that day. I figure he must have, I mean it seems like a given, but thinking back I don't recall ever seeing him on opening day! And costume characters were, um, interesting back then.

    I don't have any pics (sorry!) but you might want to post this request over in the Yesterland forum as well.

    I have a feeling that Mickey was... is that pic of him on the train from opening day? Hmmm.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

                If you ever see a skinny eight year-old looking kid sprinting through Adventureland, yell "Hi!" at me!
                Btw, I'm really not eight.

                So I'm sitting at my computer thinking, hey, I need a creative signature so that people on micechat will remember me. And then it hits me: I'll just type it up!
                I sure am creative.

                        wow, was there anyone that was actually there that day, or in the first year of Disneyland, on these boards?
