“Uncle Walt packs his new park with the stuff children’s dreams are made on.”

On August 15, 1955, Life Magazine was released, featuring a four-page article on the opening of Disneyland, a few months after it had opened. The article featured pictures of early park attractions, and described the chaos that was opening day, with over 20,000 guests trying to mill about the park. The article covers the Golden Horseshoe (known as a “children’s saloon”), Casey Jr. as it passes by the canal, and a large image of Sleeping Beauty’s Castle.
