Today we continue our look back at some of the world’s most famous Disneyland Resort guests, and for me, one documented celebrity visit in our photo archive stands out.

The photographs taken on one spring day in 1963 beautifully capture the timeless style and elegance of film icon Sophia Loren enjoying her day at the equally timeless Happiest Place on Earth in a way that inspires us to this day. Speaking of “this day,” today happens to be the screen legend’s birthday!

Recently, I asked Ms. Loren about this visit. “It was my first visit to Disneyland,” she said. “It was such a great joy to be with my family, all together and having an unforgettable time.” As for what she thought of Walt’s Magic Kingdom all those years ago, she said, “It’s a dream world.”
