On Sunday July 17, 1955, Disneyland opened to the public and it was telecast live on ABC. The telecast was hosted by Art Linkletter, Bob Cummings, and Ronald Reagan. The first five lands opened on that day were: Main Street U.S.A., Adventureland, Frontierland, Tomorrowland, and the Happiest Kingdom of them all, Fantasyland. Some big celebrities back then were at the opening of the park.
They were: Fess Parker, Buddy Ebsen, Alan Young, Danny Thomas, Sammy Davis, Jr. and Frank Sinatra.
On my next blog, I will reveal which attractions opened on the park’s opening day.
