The celebrity-studded TV special that opened Disneyland 55 years ago today, hosted by Art Linkletter, with cameos from Bob Cummings, Ronald Reagan, Danny Thomas.

The show runs to at least eight segments, and you'll find related video -- e.g., construction progress -- on the "freedogshampoo" YouYube account.
