Flushing (New York, N.Y.); New York World's Fair (1964-1965); Walt Disney Company; Disneyland (Calif.); Amusement rides; Corporate sponsorship
The Honorable Robert Moses, President of the New York World’s Fair 1964-1965 Corporation, visited Disneyland as a personal guest of Walt Disney. During his visit Mr. Moses expressed an interest in seeing greater Disney participation in the 1964-1965 New York World’s Fair. In particular, interest was expressed in the possibility of generating sponsorship for the Monorail, Rocket to the Moon, and Circarama attractions presently at Disneyland and the proposed show called “One Nation Under God.” The purpose of this report is to provide Mr. Moses and the staff of the New York World’s Fair with descriptive material which will assist in generating appropriate sponsor interest. The report contains a brief description of each attraction, summary data on performance of the attraction in Disneyland and elsewhere, and projected data on the attendance potential of each attraction (appropriately modified) in the New York World’s Fair. Data on the monorail will be presented in a separate report. The material in this report is preliminary in nature. The Disney organization was prepared to develop detailed brochures and presentations for organizations which express interest in any of these projects.
