42: Countdown to Parkstinction – Disneyland: 1955

The 60th Anniversary Diamond Celebration is in full swing at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, so this week we take a break from our regularly scheduled Walt Disney World programming to bring you the latest news from the original Disney park. First we discuss the many exciting things Disneyland has planned for its birthday celebration, including a bedazzled castle, updated attractions, sparkly merchandise, sweepstakes, animated windows on Main Street, U.S.A., and more!

Then, we hop once again into our Time Rovers and journey to the past, this time ending up at Disneyland in its opening year: 1955. Tour the park with us as we check out opening-day attractions like Space Station X-1, Canal Boats of the World, and the pack mules in Frontierland.

Plus, in a Mad Chatter game, we celebrate another Disney anniversary: the opening of Splash Mountain! Play along and test your knowledge of this classic Disney attraction.
