If you’ve ever been to the Magic Kingdom or one of its clones, you know that magic is real and our future is filled with wonders.

Trivia question:  When Disneyland first opened in 1955, what was the tallest structure?

At 76 feet tall, the TWA Moonliner, adjoining the Flight to the Moon attraction, was eight feet taller than Sleeping Beauty Castle.  The Matterhorn was not yet constructed. TWA’s Howard Hughes partnered with Walt Disney as the Moonliner’s sponsor.  Later Douglas Aircraft would sponsor the rocketship.

“Flight to the Moon” would later become “Mission To Mars” in 1975.  Today a smaller version of the Moonliner advertises the delicious beverage, Coca Cola.
