A Musical Tour of Disneyland on 45 rpm records - 1956

Are you ready for some super audio souvenirs? After I posted “A Musical Tour of Main Street U.S.A. – 1956” last week (link) a loyal and dedicated blog reader sent in the scans and music for all five records in the series! Since I only have the one “Main Street” 45 this came a quite a treat.


Up First, Fantasyland! Neat map/poster on the left, those only lasted the first couple years.

Frontierland showing the original “four window” Gullywhumper Keel Boat.

All the back covers are the same, with artwork this nice why not! A huge thanks to the loyal ready who sent these into the blog, a case of bananas is on its way.

I love this set and the recordings; one thing that always amused me is that Walt sounds like he recorded his narration in a bathroom. It's a little bit distant and echo-y (just a little!). You'd think they could have miked him better.

You may know that those recordings are available as a cd released some years ago, with great sound quality!
