Why did Walt Disney create Disneyland?
We've all heard the Walt-on-a-bench-in-Griffith-Park origin story of Disneyland, and while that was one of the influences behind Walt's decision to make Disneyland, it wasn't the only one. In this episode of Distory, we dig deep into the history of the many influences in Walt's life and travels that impacted the design of this iconic theme park, exploring where the major themes and ideas came from that created the magical park we know and love today.
