The Walt Disney Archives’ newest exhibit, simply titled “Disneyland: The Exhibit” is by far one of the largest displays on the expo floor. Around 12,000 square feet celebrate 60 years of magic with over 300 pieces from the park’s history.  It  included themed areas that honored the park’s history, lands, attractions, parades, and entertainment. The exhibit shared historical items from the past six decades, including the construction of Disneyland, Pirates of the Caribbean, Mickey Mouse Club, Club 33, and more! Within the exhibits, they  featured attraction vehicles, costumes, props, and even Audio-Animatronics. For the first time, guests were able to see early surveying equipment from the 1950s used in the construction of Disneyland, a prototype vehicle for the Alice in Wonderland attraction, “dancing monkey” costumes used in the nighttime spectacular Fantasmic!, an early Autopia car, original artwork from Mickey Mouse Club Circus, the Abominable Snowman from the Matterhorn Bobsleds, and an original pitch book full of colorful artwork that was used to sell Disneyland to prospective sponsors on the East Coast. This 300+ exhibit was whimsical and full of magic from the past.
