Today in Disney History

Disneyland:  July 16, 1955
The Golden Horseshoe Revue opens the day before Walt Disney’s new theme park’s official Grand Opening for a private party held for the various corporate sponsors. The show is located inside Frontierland‘s Golden Horsehoe Saloon, and marks Wally Boag’s first official performance as Pecos Bill/Traveling Salesman (and 16 years later will see a similar production mounted at Walt Disney World‘s Magic Kingdom in the Diamond Horseshoe Saloon, also in Frontierland).
