Did you know that Walt nearly missed the opening ceremonies of Disneyland?
He was in his special apartment above the fire station, preparing for opening, when the time came that he needed to leave. However, when he went to open the door, it wouldn’t budge. The door frames had just been painted that morning and as luck would have it, they dried while Walt was in his apartment, sealing him inside. After numerous attempts ramming the door, he finally got it open and made it with only moments to spare for Disneyland’s opening ceremonies.
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
