(Almost) Wordless Wednesday | Happy Birthday, Disneyland

17 Jul

Happy Birthday to Disneyland Resort! The magic of Disney Parks began 58 years ago today! ºoº.•:*¨¨*:•.ºoº

To all that come to this happy place
– Welcome –
Disneyland is your land.
Here age relives fond memories
of the past…and here youth may savor
the challenge and promise of the future.
Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams, and the hard
facts that have created America…with the
hope that it will be a source of joy
and inspiration to all the world.
