You will love these amazing Disneyland construction time-lapse videos! It's a real treasure, and as all treasures its find happened with a bit of luck with the discovery of a reel box with "Disneyland movie" written on it. Inside, all - or almost - of the 1954-55 construction of Disneyland, thanks to cameras that were placed up above on towers, at different places of the park. Using time-lapse and traditional eye-in-the-sky photography, this is a dazzling piece of history, presenting how the fearless construction crews had Disneyland up and running in just under a year.
It's totally fascinating, really. A pure miracle, as you would have never expect to see one day what you will see now. A Disneyland fan dream-come-true! Don't miss the third video with a commentary by Tony Baxter, Ed Hobleman and Walter Magnuson.
