In this documentary Walt Disney himself, shows us among many things, different props that will be used at the 1964 New York World’s Fair in which Disneyland will play an important role.

Classical rides such as General Electric’s Carousel of Progress, Ford’s Magic Skyway, Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln and It’s a Small World were all devised at this World’s Fair by the Walt Disney Imagineers.
