1970 Disneyland Vacationland Book and Guides

Guest Contributor: Nick Maglio

Aunt Sandy comes through once again, finding me some more of her great Disney ephemera from her past vacations.
This is a Disneyland Vacationland booklet from Summer of 1970. This magazine was “published three times yearly by Walt Disney Productions, Disneyland Division”.

.
.
Our inside cover, interestingly, opens with a Dolly Madison ad, featuring the Peanuts Gang.

.

This is Volume 14, No. 2 of this publication.
.
.
Next is a look at Tom Sawyer Island, told from the perspective of an adventure seeking, and very imaginative young man.
 .
 .
 .
“Disney on Parade” was an arena show that toured the United States and Canada from 1969 to 1973.
.
 .
A too short look at one of my favorite attractions, The Haunted Mansion, and a United Airlines ad.
.
 .
A nice montage of Disneyland photos for the center-spread.
.
.
A look at the clock on the facade of It’s a Small World, with a cute, if not very well illustrated, look at time through, er, time.
.
 .
Fun events coming to Disneyland for it’s 15th Anniversary, including “Show Me America”, a 45 minute musical tour of the United States that appeared on the Tomorrowland Stage.
.
 .
A few pages of ads.
.
.

A page showcases other attractions in the Orange County area.

.
.

And more ads.

.
.
The last page is an ad for Disneyland. Wait, what, it’s for Knott’s Berry Farm and Ghost Town?!
 .
.
I also received some other great stuff, such as this brochure for “Show Me America”, and other fun Summer activities throughout Disneyland.
.
 .
 .
.
Finally, we have another Disney Guide and ticket book.
.

.
So how many of these things do you have in your collection?
