“For fifty years, more than six generations of families and friends from all over the world have gathered together in the happiest of places to experience Disneyland’s special brand of magic, filled with fun, nostalgia, fantasy, and adventure.”
On December 11, 2007, the direct-to-DVD documentary Secrets, Stories & Magic of the Happiest Place on Earth was released. Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the opening of Disneyland, the documentary includes interviews from several key Imagineers, Disney employees, and other important players in the park’s history. Starting from Walt’s first meetings about the idea, to the failed attractions, to the future plans for the park, the documentary covers all aspects of the park, and reveals previously unknown trivia about the parks to Disney fans. The documentary was part of a 2-disc set released on the Walt Disney Treasures line, and included an interactive trivia game, a theatrically-released film from the 1950s about the park, and several Disneyland anthology episodes that go into deeper detail about popular aspects.
