Disneyland Anaheim CA 1955 - Before Opening Day

Yes indeed, at least this is what Mom always told us kids. That she and Dad took a drive out to Anaheim when they first moved here to California in 1955.

The park was not open yet, so Dad snapped a few photos from the parking lot. The dirt parking lot.

Above we see the now famous entrance into the park, in the process of being built.

Mickeys castle, at the entrance, right? Where the train comes along.

And some very space age looking building. What is that? Does anyone know? I've been to Disneyland many times and I'm not sure what it is.

And viva Las Vegas, baby! Classic Vegas, same year, 1955.

Just remember, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. ;)

How many of you have been to Disneyland?

Best Disneyland memories?

Been to Las Vegas?

And did you remember going to Vegas? lol...
