54 Years Ago Today: Thailand at Disneyland



Dipping into the USC Digital Archives again, we have these images from 54 years ago today showing the King and Queen of Thailand visiting Disneyland on June 22, 1960. In the first photo, we see the Royal Party arriving through the gates.

Walt greets King Bhumibol, Queen Sirikit, Prince Vajiralongkorn, and Princess Ubol Ratana on the steps of City Hall in Town Square.



Enjoying the Alice in Wonderland attraction:



Get a look at the paparazzi and those vintage cameras!



Can you imagine touring Storybook Land with Walt himself?



A closer look at the boat and the Royal Party:



and a better look at Pinocchio's village:

Great pics! Imagine all the things you'd ask if Walt gave you a personal tour.

This king is still alive and has reigned since 1946! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bhumibol_Adulyadej
