The Disneyland Bandstand was originally going to be placed in town square, but was moved before opening day near Sleeping Beauty Castle. Walt found that it was interfering with the scale of the buildings on Main Street as well as obstructing the view of the castle. Later the bandstand was donated to the city of Anaheim and is currently in a nursery in Newport Beach.

What if instead of throwing your pencil stubs away when they´re too short to use, you could plant them, add some water and watch them grow? Meet Sprout, a pencil with a seed!

July 24 1966: New Orleans Square opens at Disneyland

Disneyland, California, premiered their new area; New Orleans Square. This land is based on 19th Century New Orleans, Louisiana. The debut featured a ceremony presided over by Walt Disney and the real mayor of New Orleans, Victor Schiro. “I had the honor of standing next to Walt for the opening of New Orleans Square. His eyes missed no detail and he spoke of how he would improve on the concept. Accompanying us was the mayor of New Orleans” (Disneyland Ambassador Connie Swanson.) This was the first new “land” to be opened since Disneyland’s opening in 1955. This expansion cost $18 million and encompassed 3-acres. This land debuted without a single ride, though it housed many shops and restaurants, for example, the One of a Kind shop and Mademoiselle Antoinette’s Parfumerie. Due to his failing health, this turned out to be Walt’s last major public appearance in the park.
