Walt Disney with his opening speech at Disneyland on June 17th 1955
I love this speech and every time I hear it I can't help but tear up!
"To all who come to this happy place; welcome. Disneyland is your land.
Here age relives fond memories of the past...
and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future.
Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals,
the dreams and the hard facts that have created America...
with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world.”
