All Started by a Mouse
Disneyland in California opened in 1955. Florida's Walt Disney World opened in 1971, and Epcot Center followed a decade later. Today, Disney operates theme parks in France, Japan, and China, too, while its U.S. parks have been upgraded and expanded repeatedly over the years. Take a trip back in time to the Happiest Place on Earth (as Walt used to call it) with these vintage photos from California, Florida, and beyond.
