Walt Disney December 5, 1901 - December 15, 1966

Walt Disney
December 5, 1901 – December 15, 1966

While all these attractions left in the name of progress, the past did arrive in the land of the future through Primeval World. This addition, part of the Disneyland Railroad, debuted in Disneyland on July 1, 1966, after being on exhibit in the New York World’s Fair in 1963-64.
