Bonus Sunday

Welcome back to Bonus Sunday. Things have been rather busy here as summer winds down, but expect to see "Bonus Sunday" more frequently as we move into fall. Today's amazing item was donated to the blog along with several vintage and mint Vacationland's, a HUGE thanks goes out to "Tom"!!!!

From the summer of 1967, this issue (Vol. 2 No.2) of Disney News is seriously "Disneyland" heavy with over half of the issue devoted to Disneyland. You may recognize the cover (which is pretty darn incredible huh?) its the same exact cover used on the summer 1967 issue of Vacationland (link) but ironically, this issue of Disney News is even better than the Vacationland.







Below are the pages that are about Disneyland, you can also get the entire issue here:


Disney News Summer 1967 - 81mb










The Tomorrowland Terrance must have had its name finalized at the very last moment before the New Tomorrowland opened. Once again it's referred to as "Refreshment Gardens". Climate Controlled yet devoid of walls, it could only happen at Disneyland.

I love these magazines, and this one is particularly good. The cover all by itself would make a fantastic post. Check out that one segment, with the Douglas Flight to the Moon and the astronaut. Herb Ryman illustration? Sam McKim? It's awesome!

Man, 1967 was a big year at Disneyland. Notice the astronauts in the rendering?

Great post, thank you!

Awesome. I looked at the pages but I gotta grab the whole thing now. Thanks for all the work scanning this and for sharing it. Now, no shilly-shallying, no dilly-dallying, I'm off to read it now!
