When Bill Muster worked for Acme Newspictures, his boss assigned him to take Walt Disney to the 1948 Chicago Railroad Fair. Dad said he wanted to get ideas for a theme park. Years later, when he opened Disneyland in Anaheim, my dad became a fan. Whenever people visited from out of town, we made a trip to Disneyland.

Years later, I found validation at Wikipedia, confirming Disney was at the fair, and he was there to get ideas for Disneyland.

Wikipedia. Growing up, our family always shared the story of how he showed Walt Disney around the Fair because Disney was looking for ideas because he wanted to build an amusement park in Anaheim. For my dad, it was the greatest place to take out of town visitors, so we went there a lot in the 1960s. My last two visits to Disneyland were 1995 and 2017.
