Here's Walt during a test run of the Matterhorn before the mountain was completed. Sitting in front is Admiral Joe Fowler, who oversaw the initial construction of Disneyland, and was the General Manager of the park for it's first 10 years. He later moved to Florida and was instrumental in the construction of Walt Disney World.
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
