Disneyland’s 10th Anniversary on Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color


Lets return to 1965, where to celebrate Disneyland’s 10th Anniversary, Walt showed viewers and Disneyland ambassador Julie Reihm what people could expect from Disneyland in the near future. What sort of things? How about timeless attractions like It’s a Small World, Pirates of the Caribbean and the Haunted Mansion. Then after that we are transported to Disneyland for a magical guided tour that captures the magic of the park at its Tencennial.

I did not get to see this when it was part of Wonderful World of Color, but instead would see it in reruns on the Wonderful World of Disney. Like most of the older programming that appeared on that show, this thrilled me to no end. I could not wait to visit any Disney Park and I am very happy that I have been lucky to have been to as many as I have. Still, while all of those experience were Disney magical, none of them lived up to the park I dreamed up on my head, based on what I saw on these TV shows.
