The time to book your Disneyland hotel is now! With an exciting month ahead full of birthdays, come celebrate 50 with Disneyland. This month is an exciting month as ‘It’s a Small World’ breaks the half century mark and turns 50! Created by Walt Disney in 1964, this iconic ride originally debuted at the World’s Fair in New York before being rebuilt right here in California’s very own Disneyland. With musical accompaniment composed by the Sherman Brothers, the composers who created music for the hit musical Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Mary Poppins.
Disney’s childlike vision of the world was not the only attraction that he created for the 1964 World’s Fair. “Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln”, which is now housed in the Main Street Opera House was also a hit exhibit featuring a 15 minute audio-visual display. Focusing on the major theme during Lincoln’s presidency, the word ‘slavery’ is only mentioned one time during the entire film.
While the 50th birthday is a big one, there are several other birthday celebrations coming up. The Haunted Mansion turns 45 this month and the Matterhorn Bobsled also celebrates a birthday turning 55 years old. Big Thunder Mountain, another popular ride is close on the heels of it’s fellow attractions hitting 35 years old next month. Come enjoy the excitement as the park celebrates.
