The Disney Gallery Presents: Disney 100 Years of WonderExplore an exhibit that showcases Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park attractions based on Disney films—and shines a spotlight on original attractions that have, in turn, inspired Disney films of their own.
No matter their origin, they all share in the rich tradition of Disney stories filled with beloved characters, extraordinary settings, unforgettable adventures—and, of course, a touch of magic and imagination.
Where Dreams Become Reality
In reference to Disneyland Park, Walt Disney said, “It all started from a daddy with two daughters wondering where he could take them where he could have a little fun with them, too.” The park was also an opportunity for Walt to tell stories in a whole new way, bringing Disney films to life in the real world.

Off the Rails
Step into the whimsical universe of a Mickey Mouse short and hitch a ride on Engineer Goofy's train. What could possibly go wrong?
Cue hilarious hijinks! A relaxing train ride suddenly turns into a zany, free-ranging romp through ever-changing and rearranging cartoon scenes. You’ll quickly learn that anything can happen in this out-of-control animated world.
But don’t worry, with friends like Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, you’re bound to get back on track. All aboard!
A Modern Mouse-terpiece!
You’re invited to the grand world "prem-ear" of Mickey and Minnie's latest cartoon short, "Perfect Picnic"—and where better to watch it than Toontown's favorite small-town movie palace, the El CapiTOON Theater!
As you tour the lobby inside, you'll encounter "Mickey Through the Ears," an exploration of the illustrious film career of the world's most famous mouse, featuring movie props and memorabilia.
And when it's your turn to step inside the auditorium to enjoy the premiere, you'll soon learn to expect the unexpected!
Walt Disney and Joe Fowler inspect the construction of Disneyland’s monorail in 1959. Walt’s desire to include a monorail in Disneyland dates back to before the park opened in 1955. In fact, early concept drawings include a monorail track above Tomorrowland. A lack of proper engineering and cost constraints prevented the monorail from being built at the time, but Walt’s interest never waned.
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
