Old Disneyland Maps

Postby sfmmfreak101 » Mon Feb 11, 2008 11:24 am

After searching through the garage, I have found a few of my mom's old Disneyland maps. I find these maps very cool because you can see how much the park has changed through the years. I'm only going to post one of the maps right now. If you have an old map from Disneyland, please share, I would love to see it.

Here's the fist one. I estimate it 1967-69 because the Haunted Mansion is built, but is listed as a future attraction, along with Space Mountain. Pirates is open, which means this is 67-69, between the opening of POTC and HM. First thing I noticed was no Splash Mountain(1989). The Rainbow Caverns Mine Train is still in the map, and This is before the Fantasy land Re-do.

I used to have a 1978 map which my mom gave me, but I gave it to my friend who's a hard core Disneyland fan and would appreciate it more than me (not that I didn't already) ;)

Very interesting map you have there from an earlier time. Yes, the attraction "Pirates of the Carribean began operating in 1967, so that map was probably from that season.

I was at Disneyland in the year 2000 and I can honestly say that park has undergo massive changes and additions over the year. Walt Disney once said that his park would never be completely builded, and was he ever right.

The castle is even small on the map. ;)

Thanks for posting this. I think I like this map more then the new ones, I don't know why it just looks cool.

That is strange that in 1967 or so they would put Space Mountain on the map. It looks like a really cool concept for Space Mountain. They must have really side stepped this project for several years since it didn't finally open until 1976.

Also notice that unlike recent maps, they actually show you the actual ride buildings.

I found the very small date of the map in the lower left corner. It is dated 1968.

So does anyone have any maps?
