    Riding in the very first sled down Disneyland's Matterhorn in June 1959, were Walt Disney, his wife Lilly, their daughters ... and vice president Richard Nixon.

    A new Fantasyland opened at Disneyland in 1983. The medieval fair design of the original Fantasyland was converted into elaborate themed facades.

    And he at one point lived near to me, and in the garden where he lived is a "secret garden", a large park has a black iron fence running around it (with hedges behind), on a small spot is the shape of a heart, dimond, spade and clubs and its actually a gate, and you can go into the garden (which now belongs to a nursing home), and theres a statue of Alice coming through the looking glass, many locals dont even know its there

    Walt Disney, excited by the new technology already in use at Disneyland, approached Las Vegas officials in 1960 with the idea of running a monorail down the strip. He was turned down.

    And now 40 some years later, Sin City finally has a monorail on the Strip. Uncle Walt knew they were going to need one. I wish it was completed when we visited 2 years ago.
