Was Disneyland really this quaint once upon a time?, 9 February 2001
Author: moonspinner55 from las vegas, nv

It's hard to believe the crowded, chaotic Disneyland theme park in Anaheim, CA was once so under-populated and innocent. Walt Disney himself opens this TV show/European theatrical release buying popcorn from a vendor ("Lots of butter, sir, just the way you like it," the young man tells him) and is soon surrounded by autograph-seekers (watch for the one who takes Walt's popcorn!). Soon we are in Tomorrowland for a nighttime concert featuring Annette Funicello (warbling her way through "Dance Annette") and Bobby Rydell (very ingratiating while performing "Around The World") and then it's on to Frontierland for a jazz bit by Louis Armstrong. The movie is a simple, friendly tour of a theme park which used to be quaint and homey, and it makes one really miss the Disneyland that used to be. Of course, this is a time-capsule relic now, but a must-see for Mouse-fans. Disneyland has always been a nice place to visit, but from the way it looked in 1962, I'd want to live there.
