July 17, 1955 Disneyland opened. A park that I firmly believe put Orange County on the map for the rest of the country. I was lucky enough to have worked there for several years and be part of the dream of a man who was not only forward thinking, but had more imagination in his little finger than most will in their entire lives.
Thank you Walt for taking a chance and giving me a place to
work play with my friends and get paid. Without Disneyland, I would not have moved to Orange County. I would not have most of my best friends. I would not be a nurse. I would not have met my wife.
Has Disneyland changed your life for the better? Worse? Please share!
