This 1st-season Disneyland episode is a sequel to the series' premiere, with Walt Disney narrating films (mostly taken from a helicopter) of the construction work on the Disneyland theme park in Anaheim, California. Not surprisingly, the most colorful exhibits are presented to the viewer, with those still in skeletal form given short shrift. The second half of the episode is comprised of Disney's Oscar-winning "True-Life Adventure" short subject Nature's Half Acre, originally released theatrically in 1952. Narrated by Winston Hibler, the film follows the four seasons of nature, from the viewpoint of several species of birds, insects, and even plants.
