January 03: Disneyland's Tencennial

On this day in 1965, Disneyland's 10th anniversary officially kicked off. The park debuted its Tencennial Parade and in the evening, Walt himself introduced new attractions that were coming to the park on Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color.
This television episode also featured Julie Reihm - the very first Disneyland Ambassador (who Walt mistakenly introduced as Julie "Reihms"). Walt gave Miss Reihm (and TV viewers) a tour of such upcoming attractions as the Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean.
Reihm (today known as Julie Reihm Casaletto) went on to travel the world in 1965 as a special representative for Disneyland and the Disney Studio.
