Welcome to Disneyland in 1963! We’ve got two super ’63 items in today’s post.
This “Welcome to Disneyland” brochure came in a few different varieties, I’ve got a blue one (’62?) somewhere. Fun drawings on the front and that’s a pretty big flying saucer there in Tomorrowland.
Don’t those Main Street exhibits look neat? Are there interior photos of the Yale & Towne shop out there?
Daveland has an amazing animated version of this map on his website (link) I can watch that thing all day.
Here's a classic issue of Vacationland – Summer 1963. Its 24 pages are jam packed with great articles. Ambassador of Happiness; Disneyland’s Summer Spectacular; Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room; What’s New in “Fun” with the Movieland Wax Museum; A to Z at Disneyland; Dateline Disneyland and more!
The non-color paper hasn’t held up so well over the years, but the color paper is looking great, I love that original artwork.
Look who I found! Andre Tahon with Papotin’s Revue (link). Yes more fun with the quizzical, mop-haired marionette named Papotin. And for Major, Mr. Tahon prefers to call his puppets “marottes”. Personally I think Andre’s puppets belong in the Trilogy of Terror.
“From Disneyland to Zanzibar” sounds like a great movie title.
Come back on Bonus Sunday for the entire issue.
Come back tomorrow for a mini trip report. Please tell me this just happened and it's already fixed [hide small children] (link).
