The Disneyland Story

"The Disneyland Story" aired on October 27, 1954. This is the very first episode of Disney's long-running anthology series, which back then was entitled "Disneyland", named after the theme park on which the show was based.. First, the viewers are treated treated to a quick tour of the Walt Disney Studios and then are introduced to Walt Disney's newest venture: a theme park called Disneyland. Future episodes are also previewed (and they would parallel the themes of the lands in the park). For the Fantasyland portion of the episode, several animated films are featured (some in whole, others in part): "Peter Pan", "Alice In Wonderland" (which is also the next episode of the show, as previewed at the end of the show), "Cinderella" and the "Laughing Place" segment from "Song of the South". The rest of the episode is pretty much a Fantasyland episode, as it deals with a little history on Disney's first success, Mickey Mouse. Again, several of his cartoons are depicted, both in whole or in part, including "Plane Crazy", "The Pointer", "Lonesome Ghosts", and "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" from "Fantasia".

This episode was released on DVD in 2001 as Walt Disney Treasures: .
