Disneyland Lines - Christmas Editions

Welcome to a special Holiday post featuring a few Disneyland Line’s from holiday’s past. The Disneyland Line was (is?) a weekly publication for Disneyland employees.

In reverse chronological order, up first is the December 22, 1994 edition with a wonderful cover photo of the Candlelight celebration. I saw the setup for this last week; it still looks pretty much the same except that parking lot in the background is gone…

For those who don’t know where the idea of Mistletoe and Christmas Trees came from, here are some answers.

Next from December 23, 1982 this issue had a super cover.

The inside cover is actually the real cover.

You'll have to download the entire issue to find out who these people are.

December 22, 1977 has some gift giving on the cover…

A Very Merry Christmas Party.

And last up for today, December 10, 1971. These Lines are just Xerox copies stapled together, but still lots of fun to read.

Non-permanent employees are out of luck, maybe you’ll get a sack of coal as a consolation prize?

That sure is a bunch of ugly guys in that caricature collection! If I saw them all coming towards me dressed like that, I would head for ze hills.

The Disneyland Line has been biweekly for the past several years and mostly distributed electronically to the Cast (although some printed issues are still distributed).

I have no idea who the guys in the Santa suits are, but with all the crows feet and receding hair lines, I suppose they are upper management.

And they all look very scary.
