Disneyland Turns 61


“To all who come to this happy place, welcome! Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams and the hard facts that have created America, with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world.” -Walt Disney {speech given on opening day}

Sixty-one years of pure, incomparable magic – thanks, Disneyland. Can you even imagine a world without Disney? Lets not even think about that.

Today Disneyland reaches its 61st Anniversary and though I am home (my mom and sisters are in the park today) we are still celebrating because we couldn’t let the day pass without giving the happiest place earth a little extra love and adoration. I am so grateful for Disneyland and especially grateful for Walt Disney and his incredible imagination and the vision he had of a family amusement park where kids of all ages could gather and feel a joy and happiness you cannot feel anywhere else in the world.

Happy Birthday, Disneyland! You make 61 look good. I love you forever.
