    Filmmaker Jeff Altman found this footage taken by his grandfather of Disneyland in 1956. This was one year after the park opened and in the video you can see his grandmother shaking hands with Walt Disney.

    Nice! Although, hardly any trees and a carnival style - looks like WDW's fantasyland. (Sorry couldn't resist)

    Nice footage. But man, does that music ever NOT go with the video, haha. Didn't realize Casey Jr. was an original attraction.

    Technically it wasn't, it opened a few days (weeks?) after the rest of the park did.

    Wow, great footage!

    It's funny how much 1956 Disneyland looks like ... an amusement park...!

    Actually, it may just be the other way around... Today's regular amusement parks look like they're straight from 1956. lol
