    Disneyland inspired hope at time of crisis
    Still magical at 50If you go ...
    By April Orcutt

    Even at 4-years old, I knew something important was happening. My middle-class parents and grandparents spoke in awed tones about the upcoming event as though it would change the world — which, in fact, it did. On July 17, 1955, in Anaheim, Calif., Disneyland opened.

    In the half-century since, the park has had an impact in travel, transportation, entertainment, and politics. This and other theme parks changed the way many people take vacations.
    Disneyland created the first daily-operating monorail in the western hemisphere and influenced urban design.
    Thanks to Walt Disney's emphasis on quality, according to Michael Schwartner, 57, Disneyland's first visitor, California's standards for hotels and for litter-removal rose.
    And, of course, Disney's "Imagineers" developed realistic audio-animatronic people and animals and put details into the "lands" and attractions that remain unrivaled. The mine train of Nature's Wonderland wound through red desert with crazily balancing rocks and saguaro cactus shaped like people. When I finally traveled to the American Southwest in my 20s, my first reaction was "This looks just like Disneyland!"
    I thought it was a nice article about people remembering Disneyland as it was.
