Disneyland, the Happiest Place on Earth, has welcomed over 650 million guests since it opened and is one of the most popular theme parks in the world. Jeff will give a brief history of Disneyland and recount some of the most unbelievable (but true!) stories from its nearly sixty year history. He'll also share some personal experiences from his hundreds of visits to Disneyland, as well as a summer spent as a Disney employee.
