Over the last few months, we’ve asked you to join with us to prepare for the upcoming Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration by sharing your favorite Disneyland Resort memories from the past six decades. The entries have been received and now it’s time to vote for the top submissions!

Over the next six weeks, we will be sharing some of our favorite submissions, and we’re asking you to vote for the top photo from each of the Disneyland Decades. Each decade winner will receive a special Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration prize. Then, we’ll give you the chance to vote for one Grand Prize winner from among the winners of each decade. This lucky fan will win a trip to the start of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration in spring 2015. Let’s get started with the 1950s!


@morganameridius: My husband’s grandma, two aunts, and grandpa on Disneyland’s opening day!


@jessiefarra: Mom and the girls in homemade outfits by Grandma Laumann in front of the Disney Castle summer of 55!!!


@RizzosCookies: 1955 Disneyland opening week. Cousins w/ Mr. Walt Disney @Disneyland fire station


@beepbopboop17: My aunt and my mom at Disneyland in the 50s! I wish I could have seen it then!

So, which is your favorite? Vote now!

Voting will remain open until 11:59 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 17. And be sure to check back Thursday, Sept. 18, when we’ll share the top five memories from the 1960s!

  • If the rules state, “The general public may visit the Website and vote for the one (1) Qualifier’s Entry they like best in each Voting Phase. Limit one (1) vote per person per day. Subsequent votes during a calendar day by a single voter will be disqualified”, then why do I get the message, “Thank you, we have already counted your vote” when I tried casting another vote more than 24 hrs/calendar day since I last voted? Does it mean ‘we have counted your vote TODAY’, or does it mean ‘we have already counted your vote and you can’t vote again’? PLEASE CLARIFY! 🙂

  • wooow what a memories!!! I love the one that has the tea cups, I just remember the Garfio’s boat, I did my vote, and I wish I could vote for all of them, they are amazing!!!!!

  • Why can’t I cast my vote today? Is it per calendar day, or once every 24 hours? I’ve been trying since this morning.

  • While all the pictures are wonderful, the one with Walt himself is priceless!!!

  • These are all great, but the homemade dresses and the little girls with their sunglasses is just too cute!!

  • I wish I had pictures of my mom from the 50’s. She went the first week it was opened. those are great pictures. I could just imagine how happy my mother was.

  • It was so hard to pick just one because I loved all of the photos. Bravo to everyone who entered the Disneyland60Contest

  • Wow ! These are all really special Disneyland moments. Thanks for sharing !

  • I agree with Steven ^^^^ All great photos!

  • What great pictures! I’d vote for them all if I could! 🙂
