Newly discovered Disneyland home video shows park in first year of operation
By John Frost 
July 25, 2019

"While this home video was filmed in 1955, it was only just uploaded to YouTube for everyone to enjoy. According to the description on the video it was filmed by Mr. Sherman W. Carter Jr. It’s also in color, although the film does show its age.
The first part takes place in Frontierland, one of areas of Disneyland that has changed the most over the years. And yet there are many familiar sights as well. The park looks almost unrecognizable with so many of the trees and foliage still essentially saplings. Today it’s a veritable forest in the middle of Anaheim."
