My sister asked me to help with her school project, and she needs some photos of Disneyland that were taken on opening day, July 17th, 1955. I figured if there's one place that can fulfill that request, it's here. If those inclined to help could post them in this thread, they would be interesting to look at for the rest of us too.
Specifically she asked me if Mickey Mouse was on hand that day. I figure he must have, I mean it seems like a given, but thinking back I don't recall ever seeing him on opening day! And costume characters were, um, interesting back then.
