April 26, 1958 – The First Zorro Days Event Kicks Off in Disneyland
“Yes – all of your ZORRO favorites – in person – for the first time.”
On April 26, 1958, the first event featuring the cast of the popular show Zorro, advertised as “Zorro Days,” kicked off in Disneyland. The two-day event featured appearances by the entire cast of the show, including Guy Williams, who played the titular character. The show had been an incredible success for Disney, with this live event certainly emphasizing this. The event had the cast march in parades, as well as perform in live shows in Frontierland and sign autographs. This event went on to be the first of five total events: the other events were held on May 30 through June 1, 1958; November 27 through November 30, 1958; November 26 through November 29, 1959; and November 11 through November 13, 1960.
