July 1955: Dedication Day and Opening DayDisneyland Park was opened to the public on July 18, 1955 with only 20 attractions. A special "International Press Preview" event was held on Sunday, July 17, 1955, which was only open to invited guests and the media. The Special Sunday events, including the dedication, were televised nationwide and anchored by three of Walt Disney's friends from Hollywood: Art Linkletter, Bob Cummings, and Ronald Reagan. ABC broadcast the event live on its network, which added many problems of its own. Many guest tripped over the TV camera cables. Camera cuts went bad. In Frontierland, a camera caught Bob Cummings kissing a dancer. When Walt Disney started to read the plauqe for Tomorrowland, he read part way then stopped when a technition off camera said something to him. He relised he was live on air, and said "I though I got a signal.". He then started the dedication of Tomorrowland from the start. At one point while in Fantasyland, Linkletter tried to through coverage to Cummings, who was on the pirateship. Cummings was not really ready to take over, so he tired to give the coverage back to Art Linkletter, but for some reason, Linkletter had lost his mike, so Bob Cummings did a play-by-play of him trying to find a mike in front of Mr. Toad's Wild Ride.The event did not go smoothly. Traffic backed up on the two-lane Harbor Boulevard. The park was overcrowded as the by-invitation-only affair was plagued with counterfeit tickets. Only 11,000 people were expected to show up, but a staggering 28,154 was the eventual population. Movie stars and other famous figures scheduled to come every two hours showed up all at once. All major roads nearby were empty. The temperature was an unusually high 101 °F (38 °C), and a plumbers' strike left many of the park's drinking fountains dry. Disney was given a choice of having working fountains or running toilets and he chose the latter.
