Disneyland Hotel - 1957

Time for a vintage look at the Disneyland Hotel. From November 1957, this brochure tells the tale of one neat hotel, the pride of ownership sure shines thru on these pages.

"Disneyland Park… Now open 7 days a week". Huh? I thought the park was closed on Monday’s and Tuesday’s during the winter well into the 1980’s???

Look at this size of the “Sport Fish” that guy caught - WOW!

A planned trip is a more pleasant trip” and $10 for a room is sure sounds pleasant to me.

To go with our vintage Disneyland Hotel brochure here’s the cover of the Winter 1957-58 edition of Disneyland Holiday.

More explanation of “Disneyland Now Open Every Day” – I wonder how they explained why they went back to being closed Monday’s and Tuesday’s in the winter months for the next few decades?

This panorama shot reminds me of Major's fantastic April fools post from 2008 (link).

Come back Bonus Sunday for the entire Winter 1957-58 issue of Disneyland Holiday.

Nice post, this is still pretty cool I think it would have been pretty neat to have seen! Picture one has me spinning' with its mid-century coolness.

Best Regards,

I really like the vintage DLand Hotel brochure: who needs full color when you have a well-designed piece with cool retro drawings?

That is a great piece, I wonder if I have one? If so, it's in a box somewhere. There might be a variation or two.

"Disneyland Park", they definitely used that name in the old days. And yes, what's up with the seven days a week statement?

Where's Jason when you need him? Bet he'd know the dates for this 'on again, off again' seven days a week policy.

Nice post!

That Disneyland Hotel booklet has some sharp graphics.
