You may already be lining up to get an early view of “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge,” the highly-anticipated theme park area coming to Disneyland. As we look to Disneyland’s future, let’s take a trip back in time with local writer and historian Chris Nichols to remember how Walt Disney’s dream came to change the entertainment world.
Nichols’ new book Walt Disney’s Disneyland recounts the period in the early 1950s when that dream came to life, thanks to a handpicked team of artists, architects, and engineers that transformed Anaheim’s orange groves into an entertainment destination that has received more than 800 million visitors.
