Taking a picture with the Disney characters at Disneyland park is a popular activity for many guests. For Walt Disney, taking a picture with the Disney characters must have felt a little like a family reunion.
By the time Disneyland park opened in 1955, Walt Disney had released more than a dozen animated features and scores of animated shorts, introducing enduring Disney characters to the world. We recently came across photos of some of these beloved personalities standing with the man who brought them to life.
This first photo we’re happy to share was taken in the fall of 1965 at Sleeping Beauty Castle. I count at least 15 characters in this picture. Do you have a favorite?
Check back soon for more pictures of Walt and the Disney characters!
