Tag Archives: where did disney think of disneyland?


If you know anything about the history of Disneyland, you know that Walt used to love spending time with his daughters at Griffith Park in Los Angeles, and it was there that he dreamed of a family park. One without, presumably, litter all over the ground. Now over by the Disney Gallery, there’s a bench.

Look how nicely displayed it is!

Just in case you should doubt its authenticity, there’s the plaque.

"Walt Disney sat here!"

There’s also a carousel horse from the carousel there, which is where Walt got the idea for King Arthur Carrousel.

Except without litter on the ground.

Anyway, I didn’t take a picture of that, but I took a picture of this

Get yer fresh roasted peanuts!

Apparently they used to sell those at Griffith Park. And at first I wondered why they don’t sell them at Disneyland, but I thought well, maybe it’s because they don’t want all of those peanut shells all over their litter-free ground?
