"Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world." - Walt
“Disneyland is like a piece of clay, if there’s something I don’t like, I’m not stuck with it. I can reshape and revamp.” - Walt
“There are many ways that you can use those certain basic things and give them a new décor, a new treatment. I’ve been doing that with Disneyland. Some of my things I’ve redone as I’ve gone along. Reshaped them.” - Walt
“The way I see it, Disneyland will never be finished. It’s something we can keep developing and adding to. A motion picture is different. Once it’s wrapped up and sent out for processing, we’re through with it. If there are things that could be improved, we can’t do anything about them anymore. I’ve always wanted to work on something alive, something that keeps growing. We’ve got that in Disneyland.” - Walt
“Disneyland is not a museum.” - WDI
“When a new ride comes and an old one drops out, there are bound to be twinges. But it has to happen, or (Disneyland) becomes a museum and an arthritic collection of things people were attached to in the '60s." - Tony Baxter in 1997
"The park needs to constantly change.... When Walt was around, attractions came and went like you wouldn't believe. He put in the Viewliner train of the future in 1957 -- then tore it down in 1958 to make way for the monorail. " Bruce Gordon
WHY do people resist any change at all?
Maybe Disney should open a third gate in Anaheim, which is a 100% faithful reproduction of Disneyland on July 17th 1955 and charge people $300 to get in so those who don't want anything to change can be happy.
