Kodak Camera Tour of Disneyland - 1956

Did you ever wonder why there are so many spectacular Vintage Disneyland photo’s on the great blogs I have linked? It’s all because of great guides like this “Kodak Camera Tour of Disneyland”. The artwork is so fun on this; it’s one of my favorite pieces from “old” Disneyland. Printed in July of 1956.

Neat early photo’s of each “land” including Main Street. Rare early shop interior shot! Shutter Speed and fStop, ah, the good old days. (High resolution scan – 4mb)

The guide opens up to a nice big size, lots of neato vintage photos. . (High resolution scan – 5mb)

The back has more general exposure tips and of course “Pictures at Night” is that something like “Disneyland after Dark”? If you want to shoot movies at night you are going to have to use Black & White Tri-X film and open the aperture all the way!

Come back tomorrow for Bonus Sunday.

Without doubt one of the coolest DL brochures of all time. Great post.

Great brochure. I remember my first digital camera. It was a weird feeling being able to shoot past 36 exposures. Now I put in the 8 GB card and go crazy.

The one Disneyland sign I’d love to own would be a Kodak Picture Spot sign like this one in a shot over at Gorilla’s.

Thank you so much for this. This flyer is really wonderful! (My own dad could've used some of these tips when filming our family at DL in the early 70s - especially the advice against swishing the camera back and forth "garden-hose style" !)

This really is one of the nicer brochures, and thanks to ebay, it's not terribly hard to come by. Pre-ebay it could fetch a tidy sum!
