Hey guys and gals! Lauren here!(vlog and blog here, respectively!)
So, I was checking out my youtube and saw a link for these series of videos, which I've seen before, and knew it was be a really cool thing to post.
These videos are basically videos found from the disney vault. When Walt was building Disneyland, he had the whole construction filmed. It was rotting away for years until a few employees came across it.
Here's the synopsis:
Archival footage of the park's birth. Using time-lapse and traditional eye-in-the-sky photography, this is a dazzling piece of history, presenting how the fearless construction crews had Disneyland up and running in just under a year. Again: just under a year. commentary by Tony Baxter, Ed Hobleman, and Walter Magnuson, who discuss the frantic construction of the park. Courtesy of Walt's persnickety insistence to document everything.
Here they are, in parts 1-5
So yeah, if you've got some time on your hands, these are AMAZING videos. Also, check out this persons youtube channel, theeditor84 for some GREAT disney videos!
Have a magical evening! :)
