    Question 1955 Disneyland Opening Speech

    Hello to all!
    Does anyone know where I can download some of the opening ceremony video, preferably Walt’s opening speech? Thanks for your help.

    You can get just about the whole opening day ceremony footage on the Disney Treasures: Disneyland USA DVD.

    Set your TiVo to anything on ABC. You'll get "some" of the Disneyland opening speech in a commercial. In front of WDW's Cinderella Castle.
    "Here You Leave the World of California Today and Enter the World of, um, er, California Today."

    Dont you just love how they make the castle black and white, and smack him infront of it and pretend it's WDW's opening day?

    Well, to be honest, I think the commercial was purposely done poorly (images roughly put together, I mean) so that people would KNOW it wasn't deceptive.
    Very much not unlike using Bogart in that Coke commercial. It's like, "Yeah, everyone KNOWS what we're doing here with our new technology. If you drink Coke, you could be new technology, too!"
    Trust me, it could be done a lot better. I've seen commercials that look extremely realistic only to be notified that that it's just computer generated.

    My theory: every "mistake" in WDW/DL commercials are put there on purpose by WDI. They're like Hidden Mickeys. "Did you see the Matterhorn in that WDW commercial?" Well, that's just for you, the serious fan, to catch.
    "Here You Leave the World of California Today and Enter the World of, um, er, California Today."
