He described it as his "latest and greatest dream"- DISNEYLAND. Other theme parks claim to be the first ever, but most of them were glorified carnivals or fancy roadside attractions. There was NOTHING like DISNEYLAND before Walt Disney decided there should be one.
Practically no one thought DISNEYLAND would be successful. It quickly became the next project to be called "Walt's Folly" by outsiders. Predictions were made that DISNEYLAND would be closed and forgotten in six months.
Nearly sixty years later, DISNEYLAND is still entertaining millions of people who trek there from around the world. Walt Disney's One and Only Magic Kingdom has defied the "experts" and has become a world treasure- just the way Walt wanted it.
