DISNEYLAND RESORT Disneyland Park, originally Disneyland, is the first of two theme parks built at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, opened on July 17, 1955. It is the only theme park designed and built under the direct supervision of Walt Disney. It was originally the only attraction on the property; its name was changed to Disneyland Park to distinguish it from the expanding complex in the 1990s. Walt Disney came up with the concept of Disneyland after visiting various amusement parks with his daughters in the 1930s and 1940s. He initially envisioned building a tourist attraction adjacent to his studios in Burbank to entertain fans who wished to visit; however, he soon realized that the proposed site was too small. After hiring a consultant to help him determine an appropriate site for his project, Walt bought a 160- acre (65 ha) site near Anaheim in 1953. Construction began in 1954 and the park was unveiled during a special televised press event on the ABC Television Network on July 17, 1955. Since its opening, Disneyland has undergone a number of expansions and major renovations, including the addition of New Orleans Square in 1966- 1969, Bear County (now Critter Country) in 1972, and Mickey's Toontown in 1993. Disney California Adventure Park was built on the site of Disneyland's original parking lot and opened in 2001. Disneyland has a larger cumulative attendance than any other theme park in the world, with over 650 million guests since it opened. In 2013, the park hosted approximately 16.2 million guests, making it the third most visited park in the world that calendar year.  According to a March 2005 report from the Disney Company, there are 65,700 jobs supported by the Disneyland Resort, which includes, at the Resort itself, 20,000 direct Disney employees and 3,800 third-party employees (that is, independent contractors or their employees 
ANAHEIM CONVECTION CENTER The Anaheim Convention Center is a major convention center in Anaheim, California. It is located across from the Disneyland Resort on Katella Avenue. The original components, designed by Adrian Wilson & Associates, opened in July 1967 — including a basketball arena followed shortly by the convention hall. The center has subsequently undergone five major expansions (1974, 1982, 1990, 1993, 1999- 2000) and currently encloses 815,000 square feet (75,700 m 2 ) of exhibit space, 200,000 square feet (19,000 m 2 ) of pre-function space, and 130,000 square feet (12,000 m 2 ) of meeting and ballroom space. It is the largest exhibit facility on the West Coast. The arena of the Convention Center has a capacity of up to 9,100 people, depending on the configuration and sport played HOSTINGS: Originally, the arena was home to the Anaheim Amigos of the American Basketball Association during the first ABA season, 1967-68. The franchise relocated to the Los Angeles Sports Arena and became the Los Angeles Stars following the season. The team eventually moved to Salt Lake City and became the Utah Stars, capturing the 1970-71 ABA Championship. The Stars' subsequent fan support in Utah set the foundation for the NBA's Utah Jazz.. The San Diego Friars of WTT played some of their home matches in the arena between 1975 and 1977. In 1978, the Anaheim Oranges of WTT used the arena as their primary home venue. The arena was also home to the California Surf of the NASL for one indoor season (1979-80).
