Shane, I believe the design on the map was taken from an original art concept by Herb Ryman, 1966
. When The Disney Gallery existed in New Orleans Square, they had a showing of "The Art of Disneyland," and I picked up a print of the artwork of Space Mountain. Always loved it and wished they had stuck to the original design, as seen below and on those early DL maps, before it actually opened.
And the photo below it, is of the 1962 Disneyland Map, I picked up (Easter Weekend, 1963) the following year on my first ever visit to the park, at age 10. There are lots of interesting things to note on it, and when I get better photos and comment on the Lands and various "Future Attractions," I will post again.
