Disneyland Dream

In 1956, a Connecticut family of five won a trip to the then-still-new Disneyland. Their dad, now 88, shot an incredibly detailed video of their trip. Ten years ago he added thorough narration.

It's a lovely trip back in time, with none of the corporate gobbledygook you'd get if it were a professional video. Kinda Wonder Years-y in its sweetness.

That's really cool. Also, that guy has the exact same speaking voice as Hugh Downs.
