The First Feature Filmed in DISNEYLAND

Many studios wanted to film inside DISNEYLAND, but other than official Disney productions, nobody was allowed to film inside Walt Disney's Magic Kingdom. That changed in 1962 when Universal Studios was permitted to film inside the park, approved by Walt Disney himself. Starring Tony Curtis and Suzanne Pleshette, the film featured 20 minutes of vintage DISNEYLAND in vivid color.

While the movie takes many liberties (Tony Curtis is shown looking down Main Street from the monorail platform, a total impossibility) it is a glorious look at DISNEYLAND in the time of Walt Disney and remains a marvelous treat for any DISNEYLAND fan.
