Today I want to start a brand new segment here on Disney Avenue called Disney Documentary Hour. This new segment will feature wonderful Disney documentaries for you to enjoy. We will begin with the Walt Disney Treasures documentary DISNEYLAND, Secrets, Stories & Magic which has to be one of the absolute best Disneyland films ever produced or at least in my opinion. 50,000 copies were produced and it is no longer for sale so copies on Amazon and eBay can get expensive. Today we can see it for free, rite here on Disney Avenue; so get comfy, grab some popcorn and a drink and let's have a look...
I highly recommend finding a copy for yourself, which you can find here, as the 2 disc set features some great extras. The DVD features:
- Disneyland: Secrets, Stories and Magic of the Happiest Place on Earth: A 81 minute documentary of the park, produced in 2005 during the 50th anniversary of Disneyland.
- Wonderful World of Disneyland Trivia Game
- People and Places: Disneyland U.S.A.
- Operation Disneyland: A behind the scenes look at the preparations for the live broadcast of the opening of Disneyland, filmed for ABC in July 1955.
- The Golden Horseshoe Revue: An episode of Wonderful World of Color featuring the 10,000 performance of The Golden Horseshoe Revue. Aired on September 23, 1962.
- Disneyland Goes to the World's Fair: An episode of Wonderful World of Color featuring Walt Disney's presence at the 1964 New York World's Fair. Aired May 17, 1964.
- Disneyland Around the Seasons: An episode of Wonderful World of Color featuring new additions to the park, such as It's a Small World, New Orleans Square and Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln. Aired December 18, 1966 (three days after Walt Disney's death).
