Sounding Off at the New Orleans Square Train Station Telegraph Cable Office at Disneyland Park

In celebration of the 60th anniversary of Disneyland Resort this Friday, take a look and listen to the sounds of the New Orleans Square train station. The second stop on the Disneyland Railroad is home to the telegraph cable office, where a paraphrased portion of Walt Disney’s opening-day speech from July 17, 1955, can be heard in Morse code. The telegraph message is just over a minute long and decoded it says: “To all who come to Disneyland, welcome. Here age relives fond memories of the past, and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future.”


  • New Orleans square is the best area in Disneyland. Love taking the Disneyland Railroad there.

  • Will they be changing it for July 17?

  • Next time I’m there, I’ll have to remember to pretend that I know Morse Code. 😉

  • Thanks for sharing these extra magical tidbits! Will have to remember to check this out.
