Walt Disney’s Mickey Mouse Club Magazine - Winter 1956 - Issue #1

Welcome to Magazine Monday. For today’s vintage Disneyland related magazine we are going directly to the source himself, Walt Disney. Originally called “Walt Disney’s Mickey Mouse Club Magazine” after a couple of years it was changed to “Walt Disney’s Magazine”.  Today we’ll look at issue #1, Volume #1 - Winter 1956.

Since this is the very first issue, Walt and Mickey are going to explain what its all about.

Table of contents - let me know if there is something that peaks your interest and I'll post it over the weekend.

The Disneyland article is rather thin at just 3 pages.

Pages 2 and 3 of the article consist of a "ride thru" of sorts for Snow White.

Its amazing how little this attraction has changed.  So much for Disneyland not being a museum, couldn't we apply the same (keep it forever) logic to America Sings and ATIS??

As a bonus there's a neat two page article on the rare Mickey Mouse Club Circus at Disneyland.

Those are some fun posters!

Time to meet the Mouseketeers.

Autobiography of M. Mouse.

I sure do like the mid-fifties Mickey.

Time for a Mousekatune!

And of course lastly its the Mouseka-dictionary!

These posters are too cool to leave on just one page:

I have always wanted Issue #1, but so far... no luck! These magazines are so great.

The MM Club and Disneyland both aimed at people with respect and fun, add some magic, nature, history and voila - the recipe for wonderful.
I grew up watching this and loved it.
Thanks for posting!

You know, I'm looking at these Snow White illustrations and thinking "These are pretty damn good..." only to find out they're by Ken Anderson.
