Disneyland Construction Time Lapse

It's hard not to love this fantastic time lapse footage of Disneyland's original construction.

Rare and unseen footage of Disneyland's construction narrated by Imagineers. Includes some amazing new footage of Walt Disney walking the site before construction even started and some never-before-seen timelapse footage of the park from groundbreaking until opening day. This film was on the way to deep storage and was found by a curious employee, otherwise there's a good chance we'd never get to see this.

Thank goodness that curiosity doesn't kill the Disney employee or we would have all missed out on this great find.

I grew up near Disneyland too. It was great fun seeing my old stomping grounds being built.

Anyone else immediately recognize Walt Disney when he rode in on his bicycle?

I grew up close to Disneyland and this video brings back so many great memories. I can remember looking into a small monitor and seeing a featured video in Disneyland that contained perhaps parts of this one as they built the castle. Thanks for posting this! I had to tweet about it ;-)
