    WALT, MEET HENRY: The Henry Ford premieres Disneyland art and artifacts

    Like Tinkerbell's fairy dust, the magic of Disneyland cannot be contained.

    It started sparkling in Anaheim, Calif., 50 years ago with the birth of Walt Disney's original theme park. It has since spread to in Orlando, Paris, Tokyo and now Hong Kong.

    Now the magic has reached Dearborn.

    More specifically, it has cascaded into a 7,500-square-foot exhibit space at the Henry Ford and is beckoning those who love the "happiest place on Earth" (or just plain like seeing how magic happens) to enter.

    Working with Walt Disney Imagineering, the folks at the Henry Ford have scored the world premiere of the largest public exhibition of art and artifacts focused on Disneyland.
    "This is pretty unusual for us to open up our archives and travel these pieces around the country," says Marty Sklar, Imagineering vice chairman and principal creative executive. "It will give a whole story: first, all about the first 50 years of Disney parks and also about how we create an attraction."

    "Behind the Magic -- 50 Years of Disneyland" includes Walt Disney's first concept of Disneyland, drawn on vellum by artist Herb Ryman and taken by Disney's brother, Roy, to pitch the park and secure funding from ABC, which also agreed to air the weekly series "Disneyland."

    The exhibit's premiere in Dearborn, a city known more for tires and trucks than Mickey Mouse, is not random.
    The exhibit pairs that process with wonder and technique.

    Visitors will be greeted by a decorative D, roughly 7 feet high, that once welcomed visitors to Disneyland. After walking through a portion about the life of Walt Disney and his visits to Greenfield Village, visitors will venture into a hub featuring the four original Disneyland spaces: Adventureland, Frontierland, Tomorrowland and Fantasyland.
