July 17: Disneyland Opens
Disneyland, Walt Disney‘s metropolis of nostalgia, fantasy, and futurism, opens on July 17, 1955. The $17 million theme park was built on 160 acres of former orange groves in Anaheim, California. Today, Disneyland hosts more than 14 million visitors a year, who spend close to $3 billion.
