Theme Parkology

In July of 1955 the drawbridge of Sleeping Beauty's Castle lowered within Walt Disney's dream theme park, Disneyland. It is the entry way to a charming, whimsical land simply known as Fantasyland.

It is here that Walt Disney's animated characters came to life in the form of exciting attractions. Children of all ages can scour the sky on the back of Dumbo the Flying Elephant or journey through Never Land and Wonderland. Here kids can drive erratically with Mr Toad, spin dizzyingly inside a tea cup and scream wildly on the coaster of Matterhorn Mountain.

In an effort to always add to the wonderment of Fantasyland, several changes have bee made through the years. Pinocchio's Daring Journey was added in 1983, Skyway to Fantasyland and Tomorrowland were closed in 1994 and Sleeping Beauty's Walk Through was reopened in 2008. Gone is the Renaissance stone theme that resided behind the castle's wall and in its place is the new Bavarian-style village.

Explore the many changes in the attractions and entertainment that occurred within the Happiest Place on Earth with photos and video footage taken from various eras.
