    The Numbers Man and the Magic Kingdom
    By Rhonda Hillbery

    In 1955, C.V. Wood (Disneyland's construction manager), Walt Disney, and "Buzz" Price (from left) look over a model of Disney's plans to create a new type of family attraction in Southern California.
    More than 50 years after the fact, Harrison “Buzz” Price ’42 still remembers vividly his first meeting, in July 1953, with Walt Disney. From the start, the man behind the mouse was very specific about his vision for a new type of family attraction. “It sounded strange, unlike anything you would expect in an amusement park,” recalls Price of the early Disneyland meetings. Disney described a Main Street USA entrance that would usher visitors to four themed meccas: Adventureland, Fantasyland, Frontierland, and the World of Tomorrow.

    Another interesting article.

    I have not read it all yet, but it looks good. I better post it before Mice Chat goes down again :lol:.

    I heard about that book quite a while back. It's exactly as it implies -- a book dealing with the finances of Disneyland and the company.

    I've also heard it reveals some interesting facts, too, like who's partially to blame for California Adventure. According to the book, there's a small mention that Walt was considering a "California Living" second gate.

          Wow, great article! Very intriguing, as I consider myself a numbers kinda guy.

          I'm going to start using, "Yes, if..." from now on, instead of my usual, "No, because..." remarks.

            Wow, that was really interesting. I am an actuarial analyst and even though I do not share a burning passion for numbers like most of my co-workers I can appreciate this side of Disneyland's history.

            Thanks for the post Disney Wrassler!
