Welcome to Bonus Sunday. I hope everyone's 4th of July celebration was happy and safe, mine sure was.
From Tuesday's “Goin’ Quackers! This Summer at Disneyland” post, here is the complete mint Disneyland Guide for 1984.
Disneyland Guidebook 1984 (version 2) - 14mb
From 1984, this is a great soft cover book called "The Spirit of Disneyland". I think this was produced for cast member's, I haven't seen too many of these. Some of it is repeat stuff, there is a great Walt Disney quotes section at the end and lots more.
Today's post is a reprint from within this book of the original concept text that was used to sell Disneyland along with Herb Ryman's great concept art. It's fun to read this and realize some of the concepts were off base, but most of them were right on, and still work today. Enjoy...
The book is filled with lots of photos, none are in color, but some fun ones, here's a few.
Tomorrow; Its back to Knott's Mondays for part one of a two part comparison series.
