There are many well known theme parks across the country and the world, but perhaps some of the most iconic are the Disney theme parks, and it was on this day in history that one of those parks opened.

Disneyland opened in Anaheim California on July 17th, 1955. The park has grown over the decades, adding multiple areas such as Mickey’s Toon Town, tomorrow land, and Disney California adventure.

Disneyland is one of the most visited theme parks in the world, as has had over 600 million visitors since it opened in 1955, with over 16 million last year alone.

Aside from rides, people can interact with those performing as characters, buy merchandise and more.
