So This Is What Disneyland Looked Like, Back in the Day [Pics]

It may seem hard to believe, but the childlike dreamscape called Disneyland is almost 60 years old. While still keeping in step with Walt Disney's vision of the park as a "happy place," it sure has changed a helluva lot since opening its doors in 1955. These pics, taken in Disneyland's early days, show the now $100-per-ticket park during simpler (and cheaper) times.
