Disneyland Park was opened to the public on Monday, July 18, 1955.

 Disneyland Resort -- 50th Anniversary Tour (Disney Lies)
Disneyland's newest guided tour is either "From Imagination to Celebration" or the "50th Anniversary Tour" or "What tour?" depending on who in the park you ask.

This is a difficult part of Disneyland's history, encompassing as it does the period of time after which all of Walt Disney's unused ideas had been mined for any last vestige of usability and company executives found that they were pretty much on their own.

Few places of entertainment on Earth have garnered as much wonder, legend, or controversy as Disneyland, the Walt Disney Company amusement park, which was the first large-scale implementation of Disney approach to fantasy, story, and crowd control.
