Disneyland. Keith Murdoch, the City Manager of Anaheim in 1955, tells the story
of how in October of 1953 Anaheim was being considered as the location for a new
theme park called Disneyland.
On August 6th, 1970, Disneyland, the famous Disneyland park founded by Walt
Disney, was not the The Happiest Place on Earth when it was invaded by Yippies.
Disney prepared for the day by asking the Orange County Police Department to be
on hand. When the officers showed up before the park opening, they were decked
out in full riot gear. On this DVD you can see one of the largest collection of
images of that day ever seen by the public.
