From 1964, here is "Disneyland Goes to the World's Fair" where Walt Disney talks about the history of the World's Fairs and of course a preview of the Disney attractions that are first appeared at the 1964-65 New York World's Fair where they include "It's A Small World, "The Carousel of Progress" and others. And then, Walt talks about Audio-Animatronics. All this and much more.
This was featured on the "Wonderful World of Color". Portions of the episode was shot in Queens, NY in the Flushing Meadows section where all the Disney characters and guests are arrived at the 1964-65 New York World's Fair.
The 1964-65 New York World's Fair was a 2-year exhibit and it was closed in 1965 to become what we know today as Flushing Meadows Park. It is located in Queens, NY. Shea Stadium where it used to be since it has been which is now Citi Field, the home of the New York Mets.
After the fair ended, the two big attractions moved to Disneyland and opened two years later in 1966. By 2008, they added Disney characters to the ride. So this is a classic attraction for all ages. I used to go to Disney World twice back in 1994, but I hope I'll share with you.
NOTE: This is a complete video for the first time ever on YouTube, and it is 38 minutes long. Enjoy!
