Disneyland Is Open View From Main Street Station

I believe this is another pre-opening ceremony shot of the park. It appears that the KABC-channel 7 camera (conveniently placed on a forklift for those dramatic overhead shots) is being moved into place, the lucky individuals with early tickets are exploring Main Street, what appears to be the Fire House 5 Plus 2 are relaxing in the shade on the Town Square lawn and in the background can be seen balloons that are flying over Tomorrowland to add a festive air. I believe the International Street has a Grand Opening year of 1956 at this time. For such an early time on opening day there sure is a lot of activity going on.

This has got to be one of the most incredible shots I have seen. I guess even Main Street has undergone some dramatic changes over the year, most notably the brick exterior on the Opera House Building.

Wowee, this is particularly beautiful with the bright sun and blue sky. You can see those odd balloons in the distance that appear on some early Tomorrowland postcards. Love the KABC camera too!
