Court of Honor | Disneyland

Last Updated on: March 26th, 2024

The Court of Honor was an opening-day attraction at Disneyland in California when it first opened in 1955. It was a dedicated area near the entrance of the park that showcased various exhibits and displays, paying tribute to important figures and organizations.

The Court of Honor featured plaques, sculptures, and displays honoring individuals and entities that contributed to the creation and success of Disneyland. These included Walt Disney himself, as well as corporate sponsors, partners, and supporters.

The area served as a way to recognize and acknowledge those who played a significant role in the development and realization of Disneyland. It allowed guests to learn about the individuals and organizations that were instrumental in bringing the park to life.

Over time, the Court of Honor evolved and changed, with some exhibits and displays being relocated or replaced. Today, the area has been transformed into the Disneyland Main Entrance Plaza, where guests are welcomed into the park.
