Trivia

NBC was loyal to the show throughout the 1960s and most of the 1970s, but by 1979, ratings were declining, and they demanded changes in the format. The studio updated the visual look of the show with a disco theme song and a fancier opening sequence. This convinced NBC to renew the show until 1981. But the ratings did not improve and NBC canceled it. CBS then picked it up and featured an even more elaborate opening sequence using then-state-of-the art computer graphics. Disney canceled the show in 1983 due to the start of The Disney Channel. The show was revived in 1986 on ABC then moved to NBC in 1988. It was canceled in 1990 after 36 consecutive seasons on network television. In 1997, the show was revived by ABC as The Wonderful World of Disney (1997). See more »

Probably one of the best variety style show ever made
14 September 1999 | by (Newport Beach, California) – See all my reviews

Disneyland was most likely one of the best variety style shows ever made. Each week there was something different to watch and many of the shows were nominated and/or received Emmy's for their consistent quality and interesting subject matter. My personal favorites include Monsters From the Deep('54) and Operation UnderSea('54). Disneyland can be seen occasionally in the "Vault Disney" timeslot on the Disney Channel which begins at 11:00pm every night. Please note that this show was not specifically about the Disney Theme park and was renamed appropriately following Disneyland's opening in 1955
