Two years ago this month, we were looking forward to exciting things at Disney Parks, but we were also looking back at some memorable milestones. Take a look at these three trips back in time that we took our readers on in March 2013.

A Look Back: 1958 Opening of the Grand Canyon Diorama at Disneyland Park
George shared these rare photos of Walt Disney at the 1958 opening of the Grand Canyon Diorama.


  • I love the Dreamfinder pic! I still miss the original version of Journey into Imagination sometimes, though the current version is a family favorite nonetheless. We love Figment and the Imagination song!

    But couldn’t they please rotate the scents in the Smell Lab? It’d be so nice to smell pine or rose once in awhile!

  • I love the look back! Any time you can post vintage photos of Walt, please do!

    As a lifelong fan of the Journey into Imagination, I especially appreciate the picture of the Dreamfinder & Figment!
