Disneyland is the happiest place on earth for a reason. Can I share a little history of the park with you, if you're interested stick around? Disneyland is 64 years, 9 months 3 weeks and 4 days as of me typing this message. The park opened on July 17, 1955; it was broadcasted over the television on the ABC network. It took a little over a year to construct and opened with 5 themed lands. On opening day there were 18 attractions today the park currently has 58 attractions. The first day was open to invitation only, and the park was with celebrities, a total of 28,000 visited Disneyland that day. The following day was open to all, tickets cost $1 plus tax for adults and .50 cents for kids, parking back then was only .25 cents. Disneyland is home to the world's first Monorail and about 50 million park guests ride the rails each year.
