    #28 – wonder what he was really like. portrayed as a saint and the devil.

    • R.Pgh

      Probably both.

      However anyone who can piece together classical music with a cartoon of a rodent being chased by dancing brooms in some sort of fucked up LSD trip is the tits in my book.

  • basic

    This was definitely hard to fap to, but I finally pulled through…

      If every single person who reads this doesn't thumb it up, there is no justice

    • tv_paul

      Were you sing "It's a small world after all" while doing it?

    • Livin' Legend

      What, no sunglasses?

    • Owen Smithers

      Good work! Hell, you should be hot and bothered by the fact that he got it built in a SINGLE FUCKING YEAR! Those days are certainly over. You couldn't fill out the required forms in a year now (if it would even be allowed in the first place). Aaaaah, progresssssssss….

    Where are the oompa loompas?

  • Big Poppa

    Never been is it any good?

      DisneyWorld in Orlando is much better.

      • WSU

        Disney World is better but only because it's bigger and has had more room to expand. I went there 2 years ago on a marketing trip and they are amazing at what they do. It is officially impossible not to spend some sort of money there on something you enjoy. I was 24 at the time and loved it with my 57 year old dad. There are some black marks on the company that they try to avoid during the tour but I guess that's only fair. Moral of the story, if you've got the money, go.

        That's up for debate. But Disneyland is the OG. Without it, Disney World would not exist.

    • ctrain

      It's the neck tattoo capital of the world. Go to the one in Orlando instead.

  • bmoney

    Brings back some great memories!

  • Dude here

    #1 Seth McFarlen's father helped build Disneyland?

  • Jakeman

    Last picture is of Disneyland Paris

    • Scuba_Steve33

      Yeah I was thinking Florida… All I know for sure is it isn't Anaheim!

      • america

        I'm just happy to see the American flag fly with pride over in Paris… meaning I doubt it's Paris.

        • DemBone

          The American flag is there because every Disney park has, in front of the castle, a section called 'Main Street U.S.A.' which means they will display an American flag to keep with the theme. So yes, this is Disneyland Paris. Side note, It isn't Cinderella's castle in Paris, it's actually Sleeping Beauty's Castle.

          • fourbeermilky

            Yep, that photo is definitely Disneyland Paris. Great park in it's own right.

  • Fact

    Everyone knows Disney World is better then Disneyland. That being said they are both pretty amazing and i'm glad that he didn't listen to the people that told him no.

    • katastrophe89

      I honestly think Disney Land is better. It's all in one park, and it's the original. Disney World has multiple parks with only one or two good rides in each park. You have to spend a lot more money, and plus the weather in Florida is less than ideal sometimes. Disney Land FTW.

    • Guest1

      No, it's not. That's just an opinion. Disneyland is the original, fact. Without it, Disney World would not exist.

    • paul

      Actually Disneyland is better. The rides last longer, they're more detailed, and it's the ONLY one that Walt personally supervised and the only one that he constantly walked in. Disney world has good stuff, but it lacks the personal attention and detail that the original Disneyland has.

  • Boo

    #29 is Walt Disney World's Cinderella's Castle. It's a lot taller than Disneyland's castle.

    • Static

      no.. Paris. Florida's castle isnt pink

      • katie

        that's the cinderella castle in orlando, i live there and have a disney pass.

        • Liz

          i was going to say it's Not disney LAND since i live there and i have a pass!!!!

        • Kyle

          No, it is Disneyland Paris. You can tell because the people in the picture are thin and rude looking.

        • DemBone

          If you live there and have a season pass, maybe you should go back and look at it. That is not Orlando.

          • MonkeyMadness

            I thought this was Six Flags over Texas.

            • DemBone

              Sure your not confusing it with Astroworld?

              • fourbeermilky

                I miss Astroworld…

                • DemBone

                  I only been there one time. I enjoyed it. I wanted to go back but found out that they were closed =/

  • TheBAMFinater

    They couldn't make the Matterhorn ride with the technology of the day, so they invented a new way to make rollercoasters. The steel tube design was designed by Disney imagineers.

  • Dizzle

    Disney is a pick pocket that gives your ass a little rub while he's in there.

  • tony

    It's a small world after all…

  • DannoTheManno88

    I kinda thought there would be more magic wands and Mickey wearing a wizards hat just poofing shit into place left and right.

  • Captain Grovel

    Back in the early 60s there was a one or two hour TV special on the building of Disneyland – produced by Disney, of course. No doubt lost by now, along with lots of other early TV.

    • Chuck Schick

      No, I think I saw a show like that just last year or two. Really interesting.

      • TomFoolery

        They're actually available on DVD. Disney Treasures. Yes, I'm a Disney nerd.

  • Simon

    A year to build? Is that all? Crikey!

    • Clucker

      Summer 2012 it took 8 months to resurface about 10 miles of straight road near me. Shoulda hired Disney.

  • Mike

    I still expected to see lines of people even during construction.

  • Brian

    My family owed the land on which it was built. Grew orange trees.

  • Nigel

    And somewhere in all of that is the chamber where his head is still frozen…

    • The Pict

      Sorry but no, his head is in a vault under the animation building in Burbank.
