Filmmaker Jeff Altman's grandparents went to Disneyland with a 16mm camera — and met Walt Disney.

Alman posted the colour-corrected home video to Vimeo three years ago, with the magical video of spinning teacups, flying Dumbos and his grandmother shaking a legend's hand resurfacing on blogs this week.

"Shot by my grandfather on his Bell & Howell Filmo using 16mm Kodachrome film stock. This footage was taken a year after the California theme park opened," Altman wrote. "It was quite a surprise going through this and seeing my grandmother meeting Walt Disney himself! I've been doing my best to find out what they were shooting at the front of the park. So far I've been unsuccessful."

Fifty-six years later, kids still find Disneyland worth joyfully crying overand rapping about.

The 1956 nostalgic home video is going viral just months after another piece of Disney history went public for the first time. An 85-year-old cartoon of "Harem Scarem" was recently unearthed. It's the oldest known cartoon from the company's eponymous creator.
