Being raised in Southern California by a Disney-loving dad, you can guess that Disneyland was a significant part of my childhood. We went as a family once a year (whoever spotted the Matterhorn first got to pick the first ride) and I had an annual pass through high school and most of college. My Disney-geekdom doesn’t stop there, but the point is that I loved it. There’s was (and still is) something so magical about Disneyland. I haven’t been to the park in years, but this weekend, I get to go for the day with some friends and I am so excited it’s ridiculous.
I absolutely love the vintage Disney archives about first building the park and all the original plans, rides, and attractions. So you can imagine my joy in watching these videos.
