Jul 13, 2013 11:10 AM  Disneyland Talk Land
Good morning! This day in Disney history, July 13th, 1925: Walt Disney marries Lillian Marie Bounds at Lewiston's Espiscopal Church of the Nativity in Lewiston, Idaho.

Since Lillian's father is deceased, her Uncle who is chief of the Lewiston Fire Department gives her away. Reverend D.J.W. Somerville performs the ceremony and Lillian's sisters, Hazel Sewell and Sydney Bounds, are the witnesses.

The Newlyweds met at work when Lillian moved to LA in 1923. She was hired at Walt Disney Studios as a inker of animated cels and secretary. Walt and Lillian had two children, Diane Marie Disney and Sharon Mae Disney who was adopted.

Below is a photo from July 13, 1955, just four days before the official opening of Disneyland. A 30th anniversary party for the two love birds was held at the Golden horseshoe. Three hundred guests were invited. A few of the guests in attendance, Spencer Tracy, Gary Cooper, and Cary Grant. Guests were chauffeured down main street U.S.A in horse-drawn surreys down to Frontierland where they boarded the Mark Twain and sipped on mint julieps. Next, they were treated to the very first, but unofficial, performance of the Golden Horseshoe Revue.

Today would have been their 88th wedding anniversary! :)

In 1957 (supposedly) The petrified tree stump was installed in Frontierland near the ROA. (although I have found a few sites that waiver on the exact date)
Originally purchased in 1956 as a 31st anniversary gift for Lillian, it was reported that she was quoted as saying it was "too big for the mantle." ::giggles:: Unsure what to do with it, she donated it to the park.

I'm guessing it was really Walt that wanted the tree for himself. ;)
The original tree was from the Pike Petrified forest in Colorado and was estimated to be 200' tall.

The plaque in front of the tree reads:

"PETRIFIED TREE 
FROM THE
 PIKE PETRIFIED FOREST, COLORADO
 THIS SECTION WEIGHS FIVE TONS AND MEASURES 7 1/2 FEET
IN DIAMETER. THE ORIGINAL TREE, ESTIMATED TO HAVE
 BEEN 200 FEET TALL, WAS PART OF A SUB-TROPICAL FOREST
55 TO 70 MILLION YEARS AGO IN WHAT IS NOW COLORADO.
 SCIENTISTS BELIEVE IT TO BE OF THE REDWOOD OF SEQUOIA
 SPECIES. DURING SOME PRE HISTORIC ERA A CATACLYSMIC 
UPHEAVAL CAUSED SILICA LADEN WATER TO OVER SPREAD
 THE LIVING FOREST. WOOD CELLS WERE CHANGED DURING THE
 COURSE OF TIME TO SANDSTONE. OPALS WERE FORMED
 WITHIN THE TREE TRUNK ITSELF. PRESENTED TO DISNEYLAND
 BY 
MRS. WALT DISNEY
 SEPTEMBER, 1957"

Again, I'm unsure why the plaque says September, perhaps someone here knows? Perhaps it is the day it was officially presented to Lillian in the park? Still very interesting on this special day for Walt and Lillian.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Thanks, as always for reading!

:) You bet! - Duchess_SMK  5819.1 #14 3:35PM
Wow what a time it must have been. Great place to celebrate 30 years. I'm guessing you are right about the tree, Walt probably liked it so much he was sure Lillian would too. I would also speculate the plaque reads September due to Lillian taking a few months to figure the best way to get "rid of it" without offending Walt. Thank you Duchess. - GrumpyPirateDad  1817.7 #75 1:15PM
I don't know many women who could appreciate a petrified tree...I'm thinking it may have been a sort of gag gift. Teehee. Thank YOU Sir! - Duchess_SMK  5819.1 #14 3:42PM
I love this post...always great info, Duchess! 👍👏 - GheeButtersnaps  377.6 #536 1:18PM

Thanks for this! The petrified tree is so cool. - missariel33  1748.8 #77 2:27PM
If I were a prehistoric tree, I would've wanted to be petrified so that I could spend the rest of my days at Disneyland. I ask people to take a picture of the stump at sunset and they cannot find it. - Midasgold  584.2 #304 3:19PM

When I went on the Walk in Walt's Footsteps tour our guide said there had been some sort of gem stone in the tree. If I remember correctly the gems were opals, and that was the real gift. - meowmixx619  299.3 #829 12:42AM
Aha, that makes sense. - NellTinkerBell  322.8 #710 12:50AM
