The Hill Valley parade might seem like the most exciting thing to hit the states this year, but 1955 has seen its fair share of amazing events already. Walt Disney’s “Disneyland” opened its doors on July 17 in Anaheim, California to a special list of invited guests and the media. 28,000 people attended the event. The park resort consists of a theme park featuring twenty attractions, a 100-acre (40 ha) parking lot, and the Disneyland Hotel. During the first public opening day (July 18) 50,000 guests attended. We wonder what Mayor Thomas would make of that!
The park itself is made up of themed areas including Main Street, Adventureland, Frontierland, Fantasyland, and Tomorrowland and among the attractions are Mark Twain Steamboat and Peter Pan’s Flight. In Tomorrowland, which sounds by far the most exciting area, you can ride through Autopia and even Rocket to the Moon (what a fantastic thought!).
Here at the Telegraph we wish him all the best with such an extravagant venture, though we’re confident it won’t be half as exciting as our very own Hill Valley fair. Pop into the office on the day and let us know what you think.
