2014 is the 50th anniversary of the 1964 World’s Fair. Disney imagineers built dinosaurs for the Ford Magic Skyway. These dinosaurs were later reused in the Primeval World diorama at Disneyland.

"There is a static nature about the castle structure itself that makes you think it’s been standing there for centuries,", said John Hench. "And yet there is motion. The motion of those flags, and the trees around us made by the wind. The movement of people, vehicles, and boats, water, balloons, horses, and the white clouds passing by overhead." He also suggested standing in front of the castle was "the best stereo or quad system in the world" with "an ever-changing background." The rock work, the horses, appeal to the guest’s sense of touch, and the flowers are real and one can smell them. Finally, "That popcorn, you can go over and taste it." The result was that "every one of our senses was coming more into play", said Hench. "This is total involvement. You can never capture this moment and take it home with you in a camera or tape recorder. You can only take this experience home in your mind." -quoted from The Disneyland Story by Sam Gennawey and an original discussion with Disney Imagineer and designer John Hench.
