On the Web side, the Orange County Register has all kinds of goodies posted to commemorate today’s 60th anniversary of the opening of Disneyland in Anaheim, including a selection of wallpapers and a look at Walt Disney’s Main Street apartment. On the print side, the paper has doubled up.
Above is the front page of a special 16-page section published by the Register on opening weekend, 1955. It has been reprinted and is free to seven-day newspaper subscribers (as well as Disneyland employees, all of whom are receiving a complimentary copy). Non-subscribers can purchase, while supplies last, the 1955 section reprint for $2 or the section bundled with today’s edition for $6.95.
Another fun piece today collates memories from longtime theme park photographer Renie Bardeau. Below is the bottom portion of today’s Register front page. Happy diamond anniversary, Disneyland!
