Over the past 65 years, Disneyland has been the setting for scores and scores of magical memories for people all over the world. Fans are flooding social media with those memories and their hope they can return to the magic once again, and the magical happiness of those memories continues to spread far and wide.
Disneyland was originally scheduled to reopen for its 65th Anniversary, but circumstances due to the current pandemic have caused that reopening to be pushed back for the time being.
