Time-lapse footage of Disneyland's construction, for the first time

John sends us "Rare and unseen footage of Disneyland's construction narrated by Imagineers. Includes some amazing new footage of Walt Disney walking the site before construction even started and some never-before-seen timelapse footage of the park from groundbreaking until opening day.

This film was on the way to deep storage and was found by a curious employee, otherwise there's a good chance we'd never get to see this."

This is just fascinating — a look into the raw bones beneath one of the most polished created environments we have. The narration, from Tony Baxter, Ed Hobleman, and Walter Magnuson, is great. And I'm in heaven over the glimpses of the original Tomorrowland, another top time-traveller destination for me once I develop my Tardis.

Be sure to click through to see the whole thing; this is just part one of five.
