Guest Contributor: Nick Maglio

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

Frontierland
.
 .
Fantasyland, the happiest land of all.
.
 .
Tomorrowland

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!
