Disneyland Opening Day Pictures

1955 was a much simpler time

Alan Taylor at The Atlantic put together a bunch of photos from the opening days of Disneyland back in 1955.
Some things I find interesting:

  • In the photo above, a character is photographed without their head. This would never happen these days.
  • The faces on the masks are absolutely terrifying
  • Disneyland was small.
  • Disneyland’s opening was very, uhhhh… white.

So much has changed.
