Today, Disneyland's Tomorrowland is populated with characters from "Star Wars," "Toy Story" and, increasingly, figures from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But long before there were meet-and-greet sessions with the likes of Captain America or Thor, Tomorrowland was home to a different sort of critter.
When the park opened 60 years ago today (July 17) in 1955, Tomorrowland was ready to welcome a friendly swine named KAP.
Not familiar? Well, that's probably because you're not up on your aluminum history. As KAP was representing the firm Kaiser Aluminum. His name, in fact, was short for "the Kaiser Aluminum Pig."
