Disneyland Math — Celebrating 60 Years!

Disneyland Entrance
On July 17, 1955 Disneyland officially opened in Anaheim, California. Happy 60th Birthday to the Happiest Place on Earth!

Walt Disney created a magical world of nostalgia, fantasy, family fun and futurism.

Some people may even remember the live donkeys and E-ticket rides. Which one was (or still is) your favorite?

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. Somehow, the instructions did not translate properly (or the person coordinating the cutting was color blind) and most of the trees Walt Disney wanted spared were the ones that got cut down!
