April 14, 1962 – The First Spring Fling is Held at Disneyland

Spring Fling

“If you were a teen in Southern California during the 1960s, then Disneyland’s Spring Fling was the place to be and be seen.”

On April 14, 1962, the first dance event known as the Spring Fling took place in Disneyland. Teenagers dressed to the nines and came to the park to dance the night away to popular 60s sounds, with the occasional celebrity guest in attendance, including Annette Funicello. The first Spring Fling featured special prizes for guests, including the chance to win a new car, a trip to San Francisco, and Disneyland tickets. Tickets could cost up to $4.40.
