On this day, July 17, 1955: Disneyland Grand Opening in Anaheim, CA.

On opening day 58 years ago, the 160-acre, $17 million park had twenty different attractions and five themed lands: Adventureland, Tomorrowland, Frontierland, Fantasyland, and Main Street USA. Despite overcrowding due to counterfeit tickets, record-high 100 degree temperatures, and paint that still hadn’t dried in some areas, Walt Disney’s Magic Kingdom still lives on as “the Happiest Place on Earth.”
