After DISNEYLAND opened, practically everyone dreamed of venturing out to Anaheim, California to see it. Foreign dignitaries were no exception. The U.S. State Department encouraged most dignitaries to visit Walt Disney’s Magic Kingdom during their visits to the United States and they often asked Walt Disney to personally escort the foreign leaders as a way to improve relations with the countries. Walt relished the opportunity to host them.

There was no better DISNEYLAND tour guide than Mr. Disney. He loved showing off his showplace and was more than happy to assist when it came to possibly improving the United States of America’s standing in the world.
