Twitter pal Chris Titchenal (@drquest)’s mother was lucky enough to have been at Disneyland on its opening day. He was kind enough to send me a copy of some of the photos and scans of literature to post here on the site. I was at EPCOT within a few weeks of its opening and I was wow’d into a frenzy as a kid. I cannot even imagine how his mother must have felt to be at Disneyland on July 18, 1955. It blows my mind.
You can also see other great retro photos and scans at bear vs kung fu’s photostream.
