Disney Math

Disneyland Entrance
On July 17, 1955 Disneyland officially opened in Anaheim, California. The $17 million theme park was built on 160 acres of former orange groves.

Legend has it that Walt Disney had his workers mark the trees that were to be cut down with a certain color of colored ribbons. Those trees that were to be spared were tied with a different ribbon color.
