As we approach the launch of the Diamond Celebration on May 22, let's continue our six-part series remembering each of the past six decades of the Disneyland Resort. Here, we take a look back at the magical years of 1965-74, the second decade of Disneyland.

1965... The yearlong "Tencennial" celebrates the 10th anniversary of Disneyland, complete with special de`cor,events and a new parade.

 Julie Reihm is selected as Miss Disneyland Tencennial, beginning the Disneyland Ambassador Program- a tradition that continues today.


 "Great moments with Mr. Lincoln" opens at the Opera House at Town Square , Main Street, U.S.A., after debuting at the 1964-65 New York World's Fair. The attraction  features an Audio-Animatronics figure of Abraham Lincoln that's so life-like, "National Geographic " magazine called it "alarming" in its realism.

Plaza Inn opens along Main street, U.S.A., replacing the Red Wagon Inn and bringing Victorian-style surroundings to Guests looking for a memorable dining experience.


 The new Christmas spectacular "Fantasy on Parade" includes extraordinary new floats and more than 350 performers.



After debuting at the 1964-65 New York World's Fair, "it's a small world" opens at Disneyland. Waters from all seven continents are poured into its Rivers of the World at the attraction, with its almost 300 Audio-Animatronics children, represents over 100 regions of the world. And then there's that unforgettable song written by the Sherman Brothers.


The Disneyland Hotel adds the Sierra  Tower Annex with 150 additional rooms. The Plaza Building shopping center is completed a few months later, and the Marina Tower is added in 1970 with the popular "Dancing Waters" show amphitheater.


 Primeval World Diorama brings the world of the dinosaurs to life for Guests riding the Santa Fe and Disneyland Railroad. The giant dinosaurs, including a colossal Tyrannosaurus Rex, were first displayed at the Ford Magic Skyway in the 1964-65 New York World's Fair.

 Walt Disney and New Orleans Mayor Victor Schiro preside over the dedication of New Orleans Square, a new area along the banks of the Rivers  of America that would go on to house several popular shops, eateries and attractions.



One of the most elaborate uses of Audio-Animatronics in Disney history, Pirates of the Caribbean takes guests by boat through scenes of vast treasures , cursed skeletons and plundering pirates.  The Blue Bayou Restaurant gives Guests a themed dining experience by seating them inside the building that houses the attraction.


 After being closes for a year, Tomorrowland reopens with seven new attractions,including:

PeopleMover, which takes Guests on a tour of Tomorrowland from above in a perpetual-motion transportation system.

General Electric Carousel of Progress, highlighting electricity's significance to the past and the future on multiple sets, which the audience rotates around.
