The brainchild of animator, visionary, and entrepreneur Walt Disney, Disneyland Park, formerly Disneyland, is an amusement park based on all of Disney’s franchises. Walt Disney came up with the idea for the park after visiting amusement parks with his daughters and purchased a 160-acre plot of land near Anaheim in 1953. Construction officially began in 1954 and the park was opened to the public on July 17, 1955. Since it’s opening, the park has gone under extensive renovations and expansions, although Disney’s vision remains the same. Think you’re knowledgeable about the history and fun facts of the park?
