Sounding Off at the New Orleans Square Train Station Telegraph Cable Office at Disneyland Park

From Shannon Swanson, Public Relations Manager, Disneyland Resort and posted on the Disney Parks Blog.


In celebration of the 60th anniversary of Disneyland Resort this Friday, take a look and listen to the sounds of the New Orleans Square train station. The second stop on the Disneyland Railroad is home to the telegraph cable office, where a paraphrased portion of Walt Disney’s opening-day speech from July 17, 1955, can be heard in Morse code. The telegraph message is just over a minute long and decoded it says: “To all who come to Disneyland, welcome. Here age relives fond memories of the past, and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future.”
