Orange County Photographer Mell Kilpatrick was given unlimited acess to Disneylands three Attractions; Disneylands Matterhorn, Mornorail & Submarine . Mell Kilpatrick was the perfect guy to get the perfect angle. As one of Orange County’s best-known cameramen, he covered Disneyland in every possible manner by air and on foot from 1954 to 1962.
Mell Kilpatricks style was so unique, that it captured Walt Disney attention. A friendship-business relationship began between the two of them.
