"Disneyland Goes to the World's Fair" is an episode of Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color.


Walt Disney shows the viewing audience dinosaurs that will be used at the 1964 New York World's Fair in which Disneyland will play an important part at.

Next, a cartoon history of World's Fairs cave men are shown (The Hi-Los sing us the history) that is often hilarious and nonsensical, such as a man with a giant match and another man lighting his cigar in the flame and then the cigar explodes. Some serious material is also used about World Fairs of the 19th Century. Walt then goes into a film history of World's Fairs that are facetious and often hilarious.

Walt then gets back to the dinosaurs and to cave men that will be used at the New York World's Fair as we go to the Imagineering department. The cave men will be audio-animatronic.

Next, Walt shows the Abraham Lincoln exhibit to be used at the Fair, followed by the Carousel Theatre of Progress and how audio-animatronics work (it is all recorded on tape, every movement from the mouth movements to the wink of an eye). Then we see a performance of it as the song "There's a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow" is sung.

We then are shown a model of the Tower of the Four Winds and then taken to the World's Fair itself to see the completed 120 ft. tower. The costumed characters from Disneyland gather there and entertain kids and adults alike. We then are taken through the "It's a Small World" ride and then the show concludes with fountains and fireworks at the Fair.
