it is the only theme park to be designed and built under the direct supervision of Walt Disney . In 1998, the theme park was re-branded Disneyland Park to distinguish it from the larger Disneyland Resort complex.

He initially envisioned building a tourist attraction adjacent to his studios in Burbank to entertain fans who wished to visit; however, he soon realized that the proposed site was too small. After hiring a consultant to help determine an appropriate site for his project, Walt bought a 160-acre (65 ha) site near Anaheim in 1953. Construction began in 1954 and the park was unveiled during a special televised press event on the ABC Television Network on July 17, 1955.
