  • "Walt Disney's Dial Guide to Disneyland" - Vintage 1974 Souvenir!

    My friend and MiceChatter Peoplemover1, recently got ahold of a vintage Disneyland postcard and was kind enough to give it to me - but it's not like any other postcard. Walt Disney's Dial Guide to Disneyland serves as nothing short of your own personal 1974 Tour Guide to the Magic Kingdom, and also, a neat little keepsake you can drop off in one of Disneyland's many mailboxes and send to your friends and family back home.

    With pink dots on a white paper wheel, you spin the wheel to the numbered attraction you're interested in, and a pink dot handily highlights it's location on the Park map. One the backside of the Dial Guide to Disneyland, there is a list of attractions, and their corresponding numbers, for guests to easily search for their attraction on the frontside's map. There is also a small window for the wheel on the back which highlights information on your selected attraction.

    Also, on the back is a place for a stamp, and your mailing info, so Aunt Lillian back in Missouri can enjoy a little piece of Disneyland while you're on vacation.

    Here are some scans of this very neat and interesting piece of Disneyland history and memorabillia. Enjoy!

      What an incredible find. Very cool, thanks for sharing.
      Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.

              Great find! Thanks for sharing. Once again, 1974 was very special for me...in June of that year I was hired, and began a DL career that lasted, part and full-time, until 1982. And I certainly do remember those wheels. Great memories. Thanks again.

                    I've got one of those buried in the garage somewhere, if the rats haven't got to it... I remember looking at that under the covers with a flashlight when I was little, imagining my next trip, getting to know every corner...
                    It'll be my motivation to clean the garage this year and find that!

                        Oooooo! I had one of those dial guides...from the early 80s or so. Used to look at it longingly and wish I could visit D-land more than just once a year. I'm kicking myself now, though. Don't know what happened to it. But I'm sure that I messed it up...like kids are wont to do. *sigh* If I only knew then...

                          That is really neat. I still have a first aid dial guide from the late 60s....wish I had a Disneyland one.
