I love checking out Disney Park footage from back in the day! Comparing the park now to what we have today is always a blast! Last year Jeff Altman came across 62 year old Disneyland footage his grandfather shot and shared it on YouTube.
That video is gaining more attention than ever thanks to a Reddit threat it was shared in.
But really, the coolest part of the video, at least to me, is seeing Altman’s grandmother meeting Walt Disney himself. Talk about magical!!
The video was filmed in 1956 by Altman’s grandfather on a Bell & Howell Filmo using 16mm Kodachrome film stock. You can see iconic parts of Disneyland that still draw visitors to the park today – like Dumbo and even the entrance with the Disneyland Railroad and iconic Mickey Mouse face!
And we get a glimpse of other parts of Disneyland that are just distant memories now!
You can check out the video here – and no, there is nothing wrong with your computer or phone, the video has no sound!
While we can’t take you back to 1956 and get you a meet and greet with Walt Disney, there are still plenty of amazing things, classic and new, to experience at the Disneyland Resort!
