Walt Disney didn't invent the theme park industry, but it's safe to say that he sure did perfect it. Although Disneyland is the smallest of all the Disney Parks found around the world, it has the most attractions. When it opened to massive fanfare back in 1955, it soon blossomed into a one of the most beloved world-class destinations on the face of the earth, and remains that way to this day. Join us today as we take a trip back to Walt Disney's Magic Kingdom of the 50s and 60s with these delightfully vintage Disneyland scenes of yesteryear...
