Description

The film shows a family visit to Disneyland in California whilst on a business trip. Shots of the Disney attractions include the Matterhorn, Astro-Jet, Submarine Voyage, Burning Settlers Cabin, views from aboard the Skyway through the Matterhorn, riding the Omnibus trams, and costumed characters (five of The Seven Dwarves and the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland).

The second part of the film shows the family group at 'Marineland', watching a sea life show with performing killer whales, sea lions jumping through burning hoops and a dolphin and porpoise show. The sequence ends with a wide shot of the families hotel next to a marina.
