This is an HD video of Disneyland in 1957 | Sharapova's Thigh

HD video of 1957 Disneyland? How in the hell?

Let the Disney History Institute explain:

We cleaned the film, transferred it with a Spirit DataCine, and edited a few clips to music. But all of the images here are from 1957, before the park was even two years old.

So there you go. And here's the video:

As I said earlier today, I lived in the Los Angeles area for five years as a kid. Our family would visit Disneyland multiple times per year in that time, and I've been there (as well as Disney World in Orlando) many more times since then (most recently the day after Christmas '09). And every time, the visit to the park feels as magical as always. If you've never been to one of the parks, I urge you to do everything possible to plan a vacation for one of them in the near future, especially if you have kids. They will have the time of their lives. Guaranteed.

Anyway, as somebody that is very familiar with Disneyland and absolutely love it, I found that video to be nothing short of AWESOME. I was pretty shocked with how similar much of the park's attractions looked in comparison to their present day appearance.

And just seeing anything from over 50 years ago in such video clarity is amazing in itself, but it's even more badass when it takes you around Disneyland in just the park's second year of existence.
