Theme Park of the Week: Disneyland

Even if other amusement parks may have opened before Disney's first park, 

Disneyland was the first to define what a theme park could be and ignite a boom in park construction over the following two decades. 

What size park was this? Even today, anytime a developer brings up the prospect of establishing a new theme park, they always refer to it as "Disneyland" for their neighbourhood.

On the anniversary of Disneyland, I enjoy sharing the ABC broadcast of the park's inaugural ceremony, 

which also featured Walt Disney himself and future US President Ronald Reagan

Star Wars Rise of the Resistance, the top-rated attraction in the world according to Theme Park Insider readers

as well as the acclaimed Indiana Jones Adventure and the original Pirates of the Caribbean are all located at Disneyland.
