It all started with a bench?

By Guest Angela Barr

As some of you might know, Walt Disney got the idea to build Disneyland one Saturday during his “Daddy/Daughter day” One Saturday, Walt took his two daughters to the Carousel at Griffith Park. While he was sitting on the bench watching his daughters ride the Carousel, he started thinking that there should be some type of “entertainment enterprise” where parents and children could have fun together. That thought was the beginning of Disneyland.

In the “Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln” attraction, they have on display the actual park bench that Walt sat on when he conceived the idea for Disneyland.

Here is the bench:
