The happiest place on earth opened its gates to the public on July 17, 1955.

Were you there? We’d love to hear your memories!

Disneyland will be celebrating with a “Disneyland Celebration Cavalcade” down Main Street featuring Mickey, Minnie, and other favorite Disney characters at 2:50pm and 5:20pm. And Walt’s opening day speech will be broadcast to celebrate the park’s history.
