    I got this off of the Walt Disney site

    Several days before Disneyland opened, Walt and Lilly celebrated their 35th anniversary at the park. It was a happy night for the family, complete with Walt and Lilly dancing on the stage of the Golden Horseshoe. Diane recalls her father in the backseat of the car on the way home, holding a rolled-up Disneyland map: "He was tooting through it like a little boy with a toy trumpet. And then he was singing a song. And before I knew it, there he was like a little boy, sound asleep, with his trumpet folded in his arms." Opening day of the park was televised on a 90-minute live television program that was the most-watched TV event up to that time. Some 20 cameras posted around the park telecast a vision of exciting attractions, heartfelt dedications, and relaxed commentary from Art Linkletter, Bob Cummings, and Ronald Reagan.

    crashbunny, it just goes to show you can't believe everything you read on the Internet, even from a Disney site. Walter Disney and Lillian Bounds were wed in Lewiston, Idaho in the living room of her uncle, the fire chief, on July 13, 1925. Which would have made their 30th wedding anniversary, which was celebrated on the Mark Twain Riverboat, right before Disneyland opened.

    ok

    then it happened in an alternate universe


    sorry - then why doesnt someone tell whoever takes care of the site that the number is wrong

    it doesnt look good for an official site to be inaccurate

    and it upsets those of us who thrive on accuracy (engineering nerds )
