This show marked the first widescreen presentation and the first stereo simulcast on TV. The stereo simulcast required the assistance of local radio stations, but this could not be arranged in all markets. Therefore, two versions of this show had to be prepared. In the alternate version, Walt Disney explains what the viewer needed to do to be able to hear the stereo simulcast portion of the show. In this version, the explanation of how to set up the stereo simulcast was replaced with different narration and visuals.

Walt Disney began hosting his own television show for ABC in 1954 in an unusual contract: Disney provided ABC with a weekly hour-long television program in exchange for funding for the construction of Disneyland. As a result, the television show was also originally named Disneyland. The anthology series has since gone through a number of name changes over the years: Walt Disney Presents, Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color, The Wonderful World of Disney, Disney's Wonderful World, Walt Disney, The Disney Sunday Movie, and The Magical World of Disney. The series spanned an incredible 54 years—13 seasons of which were hosted by Walt Disney, himself.
