  1. Jeff,

    Recently, I had my boys watch the series of videos (one video broken into something like 8 pieces) that have been loaded on YouTube that is the opening day event of Disneyland. It was hosted by a young Art Linkletter and Ronald Reagan.

    It is also the video of the famous Walt Disney opening-day quote, “To all who 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.”

    And you know, I believe Disney still holds to those ideals.


  2. Bob, thanks for a great reminder of Walt’s speech. And yes, still holds true today. That’s why I’m still here. 🙂
