Disneyland Park is magical anytime of the day, but the park really comes to life when the sun sets and the lights twinkle along Main Street, U.S.A.
Capturing the nighttime magic at Disneyland Park, a special episode of "Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color" aired on April 15, 1962, titled "Disneyland After Dark."
Joining Walt Disney were some of the '60s hottest celebrities including Louis Armstrong performing on the Mark Twain Riverboat, Annette Funicello singing "I Love to Dance," and making their network televison premiere, the Osmond Brothers. To end the program, Walt Disney appeared in front of Plaza Gardens,decked out in a purple feathered cap and snacking on popcorn while wishing everyone good night.
