  • A Whitman Giant tell tale book Walt Disneys Disneyland 1964

    While browsing a local book store my Fiance and I came across this Book from 1964 And its all about Disneyland, Its really a neat book, it has pictures of The trolley, The Firewagon, The Disneyland Band, A popcorn stand "Popcorn was 15 cents" Sleeping Beautys Castle, Mad Tea Party, King Arthur's Carrousel, Dumbo Ride, Casey Jr Circus Train, Mr Toads wild Ride, Storybook land, Great Photos of tommorowland, "The trees were so small", Astro Jet ride, Midget Autopia, Submarine Ride, Bobsled The Matterhorn, The frontierland entrance, Indian Village, Indian Chief, Living Desert, Mine train, The Mule Train, Tree House, Fishing on Tom Sawers Island, Great Photos of Mark Twains Steamboat, The Adventureland entrance, Jungle Ride, The Tiki House Courtyard, Swiss Family Robinson Tree House, The Haunted House, The Disneyland Train. These are the names that were in the book I dont know if they changed them later on. I hope you enjoy this book, I like it alot, maybe because it is 46 Years old, I hope you enjoy it too.

        Thank you Snorks I was shocked by the lack of trees, and the 15 cent popcorn was a trip as well.

          Thanks for sharing that wonderful book.

          Disneyland is a special place, and when I think of all the people who have visited it since opening day in 1955 it just makes me smile. It has brought a lot of happiness to a lot of people, and hopefully that will never stop.

            You know I think of that quite often, after were all long gone what will the parks become? Most of the people in these books are long gone except the kids of course. Its amazing how time flies.

              Great to see that. Are you sure about the date? I believe that the Subs and Matterhorn weren't there until 1969.

                          It's entertaining seeing the large area devoted to the Haunted Mansion -- which wouldn't open for another 5 years after this book was published -- and no references to Pirates of the Caribbean nor New Orleans Square.

                            Thanks for posting, I loved seeing all those great old photos, many of them brought back childhood memories for me.

                              So from what I have found, they started building the Haunted Mansion in 1959? But didint finish until 1966. Is this true and what took so long?
