I think this video has been making the rounds, but when I stumbled onto it I had to share. It's a beautiful look at Disneyland from the past. Filmed in 1957, about two years after Disneyland first opened, you can see that the park is not nearly as crowded as you'd find it today. You can also see that the "Disneyland experience" is not just about the rides, but also about walking through this new fun place. A permanent, themed amusement park such as this was a fairly new and radical idea at the time. There are a few things that I find striking after watching this video--- how clean-cut and well-dressed the park goers all are, and... how white everyone is.
