A recent post on Disneyland Nomenclature asked about New Orleans Square and if it is was a new “land” or an attraction. (link)
This got me thinking about the Summer 1966 edition of Vacationland.
Just inside the cover is the introduction page and this neato artist rendering of the stair case in New Orleans Square. Notice the text: "This major Disneyland attraction will open this summer."
Two pages discuss New Orleans Square. Obviously New Orleans Squareland sounds silly, but you will notice the writer(s) are careful not to use the word “land”. This fun artist rendering seems a little different than the actual version as built or is it just me?
In fact, the restaurants’ are in an “area”. Let's call it “New Orleans Squareland Area Attraction” or NOSLAA for short. They are also calling it the "French Quarter" my head hurts...
Come back this Bonus Sunday for the entire magazine. Here’s a great ad for the “new” Universal City Studios Tour. They still had the McHale's Navy "make your on movie set" when I first went to Universal in 1975!
