Plenty of people, they started with nothing.

Just a suitcase and a dream.


They packed up their cases and went to new places.


With a suitcase and a dream.

They made this world into a place

Like you have never seen.

It’s like they hit the jackpot

On a slot machine!


Yeah!

Yeah, yeah, yeah!


Got a suitcase and a dream,

A suitcase and a dream.

A suitcase and a dream,

A suitcase and a dream!

You and me, we got our ideas.

Other people got theirs too!


So pack up your suitcase,

And start your dreamin’!


The rest is up to you!

It don’t matter if you’re rich or broke.

It don’t matter if you’ve given up hope.

All you need is a little drive,

To make your dreams begin to come alive!

Mr. Disney traveled west with just a few bucks to his name.

Along the way, he met Mickey Mouse,

And the world will never be the same!

He got a suitcase and a dream,

A suitcase and a dream.

Suitcase… and a dream!


When you wish upon a star

Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you
If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do
Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of
Their secret longing
Like a bolt out of the blue
Suddenly, it comes to you
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true
When a star is born
They possess a gift or two
One of them is this
They have the power to make a wish come true
When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you,
If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do
Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of
Their secret longing
Like a bolt out of the blue
Suddenly, it comes to you
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true

The Night Before…

The night of July 16, 1955 was most likely a sleepless one for Walt Disney. On the very next day he would finally welcome the world to his greatest dream- DISNEYLAND. It would be one of the biggest days of his life. Would people show up? Would anyone watch the opening on television? Would the naysayers be proven correct? Walt Disney was always certain that his dreams would prove to be successful, but there had to be some doubts floating around in his head. He had bet his studio and his life savings on this crazy idea of his. Would it be a success? The answer would come soon enough.

DISNEYLAND: Not Secret

Walt Disney had a big issue when it came to DISNEYLAND- there was nothing like it in the world. How could he show the world what it would be like? He chose transparency. He would come into America’s homes every week and show them the park’s construction progress and describe in detail what they’d eventually find there.

He enlisted Davy Crockett himself to give a tour to the press. The press had been curious about the park and had doubts about its viability. Mr. Disney hoped to gain more positive mentions in the media by showing that DISNEYLAND wasn’t just some crazy carnival or circus.


The strategy worked. While people still weren’t sure about what awaited them within the Magic Kingdom, they had a better idea of what they’d find there. Beginning on July 17, 1955 people from around the world would flock to Anaheim to see what Walt Disney had built- and they continue to do so 63 years later.
