Here are a few pics of Marceline, MO. Walt’s hometown! So many stories can be told here. One is the visit Walt and Roy made to Marceline in 1956 to present the Midwest premiere of the live-action film, THE GREAT LOCOMOTIVE CHASE. July 4th, 1956 beginning at 2pm Walt and Roy greeted each child as they entered the Uptown theater. The kids sang the Mickey Mouse Club March, and the film (shown for free) ran continuously until 1:30 the next morning.
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
