today in history...

July 17, 1955
Disneyland opens

Disneyland, Walt Disney's metropolis of nostalgia, fantasy, and futurism, opens on July 17, 1955. The $17 million theme park was built on 160 acres of former orange groves in Anaheim, California, and soon brought in staggering profits. Today, Disneyland hosts more than 14 million visitors a year, who spend close to $3 billion.

Walt Disney, born in Chicago in 1901, worked as a commercial artist before setting up a small studio in Los Angeles to produce animated cartoons. In 1928, his short film Steamboat Willy, starring the character "Mickey Mouse," was a national sensation. It was the first animated film to use sound, and Disney provided the voice for Mickey. From there on, Disney cartoons were in heavy demand, but the company struggled financially because of Disney's insistence on ever-improving artistic and technical quality. His first feature-length cartoon, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1938), took three years to complete and was a great commercial success.

Snow White was followed by other feature-length classics for children, such as Pinocchio (1940), Dumbo (1941), and Bambi (1942). Fantasia (1940), which coordinated animated segments with famous classical music pieces, was an artistic and technical achievement. In Song of the South (1946), Disney combined live actors with animated figures, and beginning with Treasure Island in 1950 the company added live-action movies to its repertoire. Disney was also one of the first movie studios to produce film directly for television, and its Zorro and Davy Crockett series were very popular with children.

In the early 1950s, Walt Disney began designing a huge amusement park to be built near Los Angeles. He intended Disneyland to have educational as well as amusement value and to entertain adults and their children. Land was bought in the farming community of Anaheim, about 25 miles southeast of Los Angeles, and construction began in 1954. In the summer of 1955, special invitations were sent out for the opening of Disneyland on July 17. Unfortunately, the pass was counterfeited and thousands of uninvited people were admitted into Disneyland on opening day. The park was not ready for the public: food and drink ran out, a women's high-heel shoe got stuck in the wet asphalt of Main Street USA, and the Mark Twain Steamboat nearly capsized from too many passengers.

Disneyland soon recovered, however, and attractions such as the Castle, Mr. Toad's Wild Ride, Snow White's Adventures, Space Station X-1, Jungle Cruise, and Stage Coach drew countless children and their parents. Special events and the continual building of new state-of-the-art attractions encouraged them to visit again. In 1965, work began on an even bigger Disney theme park and resort near Orlando, Florida. Walt Disney died in 1966, and Walt Disney World was opened in his honor on October 1, 1971. Epcot Center, Disney-MGM Studios, and Animal Kingdom were later added to Walt Disney World, and it remains Florida's premier tourist attraction. In 1983, Disneyland Tokyo opened in Japan, and in 1992 Disneyland Paris--or "EuroDisney"--opened to a mixed reaction in Marne-la-Vallee. The newest Disneyland, in Hong Kong, opened its doors in September 2005.

ugh... wasn't the greatest diet day. i couldn't get up this morning so i decided to sleep in. i didn't get to work till after 10... so when i get my paycheck it will suck but i don't care right now, it felt so good to sleep in.

back to the grind tomorrow, stupid weekend really threw me off

and then i didn't do anything after work like i planned... well i kinda did some laundry but i just getting back into the groove of stupid depression of doing nothing and i'm staying up too late and not getting up for work in the morning. it's like i don't even hear my alarm until 550 and that just screws everything.

crazy ass weekend...

this weekend was long and full of a bunch of fun stuff.

friday was just a relaxing time with spencer and watching a movie... he had to work in the morning so we didn't stay up late and left his place saturday morning and came home to get ready for working out and reno. ash and i did the 11 mile bike ride up at cascade shores. it was rough and it really made me wonder if i'm going to be able to do this triathlon. fuck. it's scary. so after that craziness we met up with brit and went up to reno. those kosher cousins are crazy party girls. i would never be able to live up there, but we got some special treatment at the club we went to and didn't have to beat anyone up. i felt very good looking... i don't like to say things like this but seriously... there aren't very good looking women in reno. we stayed out late but really had a decent time :) i'm still in pain from the cigarette smoke though. sunday we drove home and luckily avoided 2 accidents, one closer than the other and i made it home later than expected but had to hurry and get ready for megan's birthday/going away party. it was decent but the sorority girls aren't really my favorite people to talk to, megan is cool, and she has a friend named erica who's was nice as well. but austin looked miserable having to hang out with them. i wonder about their relationship sometimes. they've now been together for 5 years. megan leaves tomorrow for her job training in chicago and austin leaves on saturday to texas to get set up for his job training. crazy crazy... now if spencer will just call that recruiter.
