Disneyland Pictorial Souvenir and Guide

By Nick 

This came in a surprise package from my Aunt Sandy. From 1968, “Walt Disney’s Disneyland: A pictorial souvenir and guide”

The inside front cover folds out, and on the this fold out and the 1st page we get a short history of the creation of Walt Disney’s “new concept in family entertainment”.

We then look at each of the lands, starting with Main Street, U.S.A.


New Orleans Square opened on July 24th, 1966, and Pirates of the Caribbean opened March 18th, 1967

Fantasyland, the happiest land of all.


Great shot of  the Monorail. I can’t tell if this is the Mark II or Mark III, as the Mark III arrived in 1968

More Monorail, this time in front of the Disneyland Hotel, a sight you won’t see today, as it no longer makes a stop there.

A vibrant back cover.

A great look back at my favorite Disney park!
