All of the ABC episodes were filmed in color, even though they aired in black and white. In general, ABC did not broadcast in color until the mid 1960s. During the years on ABC, the show went by the title of "Disneyland", with one of four weekly sub titles, either "Fantasyland", "Frontierland", "Adventureland", or "Tomorrowland", depending on the category of that week's show. When the show moved to NBC, in 1961, the different sub titles were dropped. Additionally, many of the ABC episodes that re-aired on NBC were shown in color, and have been that way ever since, even those episodes aired on The Disney Channel, as well as those released in the theater ("The Adventures of Davy Crockett") and on home video.

Probably one of the best variety style show ever made
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
