Looking at the success of Disney parks around the world today, you'd think that Disney was always destined to succeed, right? Well, many people believed Disneyland would actually fail, and industry 'experts' came up with 10 reasons Disneyland would fail, including that the theming, such as Sleeping Beauty Castle, was unnecessary and expensive, and that a park without a rollercoaster would never work. Walt Disney tried to find shareholders for Disneyland, but due to the belief that the park couldn't work he was unable to do this, but a news channel agreed to broadcast the creation of the park from early construction to opening day, which received a lot of excitement from the public about the world's first theme park. After a rocky opening day Disneyland was a huge success, leading to the building of many more Disney parks around the world!
