I'm a Disney fanatic. I first went to Disneyland in 1955. I have returned at least once a year every year since. I have stayed in the Disneyland Hotel and the Grand Californian multiple times I have seen the changes to the parks and resorts.

One of the most fun ride was added in 1989, Splash Mountain. It's opening was perfect for a hot day in July. My family loves this ride. What is my family's favorite? Sure have trimmed the bushes.

Happy anniversary! I have had the good fortune to have visited Disneyland every year since that 1955 opening. Here are some pictures of two of the milestone years. the 25th and the 50th. To me Disney is reality and everything else in the world's fantasy.
Every year! That's awesome! - JenGwen323  1053.3 #130 8:07AM

July 13, 1957, they installed the petrified tree stump in Frontierland near the Rivers of America. Walt had bought it for his wife, Lillian, the year before at the Pikes Petrified Forest in Colorado. She said, "It won't fit on the mantle, let's put it in the park."
Lillian was shrewd. Walt gives her big rock, so not to rock Walt's boat, one can hear it go done "it's wonderful dear. Now where can we put it? How about your neat park where everyone can enjoy it?! Walt: great idea Hunny." Whew rock goneπŸ˜‚πŸ‘ - Plumiegirl  7674.8 #3 11:03PM

#Flashback Friday In 1997, Toontown had a little park with Toontown looking items. CC was playing on one of them, she slipped and fell and scraped up her nose. As I held her, AJ has to try it out. You can see her poor little nose while she is being hugged by Goofy in Frontierland.

#TBT I miss the days of the center geyser. If you were hit by that, you were definitely soaked.
They don't do that anymore? Β Nothing woke you up like that geyser going down your back! Β :-). (PS - Nice collage!) - redsoxcarlos  845.0 #172 6:50PM

On July 4, 1976 as a Californian I figured the best place to celebrate on the West Coast was at Disneyland. It was incredible. The energy of crowd, and it was a big crowd, was electric. I've been to the 4th before and since. But this one was the best.
That would have been an exciting time, with the Bicentennial! - Thumper13  337.7 #612 8:44AM

When the New Tomorrowland open in July 1967, I had just graduated from high school. I brought my little brother and I to Disneyland for the first visit without parental units. With the new Peoplemover and the Carousel of Progress, we knew we were seeing the future. We also went to the All-Star game at the Big A.

Nice pics!  I sat next to you at magic map show this past may and we traded stories of the good old days. I showed you an old ticket book I had from 1971.  Good to see you here and I'll say hi when I'm there in early sept. I graduated in 67 also! - disneybob49  25.7 #5497 6:32PM

Admin asked me to post a picture when I got to Disneyland of my favorite rock. Well I found my favorite rocks in DCA. They kind of resembles a Mickey. I bent down and took the picture fell down hit my knee, wrist, and elbow. But I met some nice medical staff to stop the bleeding.
Oh geesh. The price you pay for a great picture - amyb1076  190.6 #1954 6:56PM
