This classic episode is called "Disneyland Around the Seasons".
Before I go on, a special note about this episode. This episode originally aired on December 18, 1966, three days after Walt Disney died. As a result, when this episode aired, NBC, who aired the Disney series in those years, did not air the first few minutes of the episode, instead airing a special tribulte to Walt. So the first viewers of this episode never saw the first few minutes. That material wasn't seen until this episode re-aired on the Disney Channel many years later.
But also, you can see a visible change in Walt's appearance during this seasons of episodes, as evidenced by this video (and the film showing his plans for Disney World), so the onset of the lung cancer that claimed him was already apparent.
But in this episode, we see some highlights of Disneyland's 11th year, highlighted by a man in a jet pack flying over Tomorrowland. That would also be a part of the pre-game for Super Bowl I, which was played at the L.A. Coliseum exactly one month after Walt Disney's death.
After that, we see three new attractions, two of which we see the opening of, and one completely new land. First, we see "it's a Small World" open in Fantasyland on Memorial Day, 1966 (which fit the Disneyland tradition of opening an attraction on a hoilday) and "Great Moments With Mr/ Lincoln" on Main Street at the operahouse the year before. Then, New Orleans Square is opened, followed by "the Primevil World", which was put on a section of the Disneyland railroad.
After that, it's time for the 1965 Christmas "Fantasy on Parade", which includes some new entrants. Not only are all the old favorites there, but so are Mary Poppins and another new member to the Disney family of cartoon characters, Winnie the Pooh, who Walt Disney acquired in 1963. And of course, after the parade, we see the nighttime festivities.
All rights and credits go to the Walt Disney Company and those that created the video and audio, including the music used in the program. That includes the Disney Channel, as I recorded this program on their Vault Disney block more than a decade ago.
If there are any others who I'm forgetting, please let me know so I can add them to the list of those to credit.
There's a chance that this video will be taken down, not allowed up, or I'll be asked to take it down. If I'm asked to, I will take it down.
