When Walt announced the building of the first Disneyland in Anaheim, that was the easy part.
Now that he had announced it to the world, of course, he really had to built it!
So, today, here is a pictorial tribute to the building of the very first Magic Kingdom.
From the top: Walt with the first renderings of the different lands. The Disneyland model ( but i'm not sure this photo is circa 1954 ) . In 1954, Walt on the land , thinking about the "right place". The building of the city hall, of Main street, of the castle at different time of its building. Walt supervising the building of the fort at the entrance of Frontierland. The building of the Carousel. Workers on Main street. Walt looking at the "final touch". The arrival of the Tommorowland rocket. The building of the entrance before opening day, and this famous picture of Walt before the opening; walking through the castle.
