Roy O. Disney was the first Disneyland collector. When he bought Disneyland ticket number One from his brother Walt for a dollar, he was the pioneer at what would become a passion for many, and an obsession for some. Disneyland inspires visitors to cherish the experience, and find something to keep and recall that experience later. As Disneyland changed, and attractions were retired, the items associated with them became more collectible, as touchstones to a past era, both of our own and of Disneyland’s. There are different types of collectibles you can own from Disneyland. The first, most obvious are the items manufactured and sold in the park to be brought home as a souvenir. These may seem like the easiest to find, but many early and short-lived items are still much sought after, and command a high price. Next most common are ephemera, which is kind of the opposite: cups, napkins, flyers – generally anything that made to be consumed and used up, rather than preserved. Of special interest are cast member exclusives – everything that was sold or given only to those who work at Disneyland themselves. The ultimate collectibles from Disneyland are the show items – the costumes, signs, and figures that were made for use in the park – literally made to be a part of the Disneyland experience for guests. The collection outlined here is a very important one, not only in its size, but it’s reach. Rather than a belabored accumulation of, for example, every single Pirates of the Caribbean item every created, the collector has carefully curated from the history of the entire Disneyland Park to include only the most iconic and best designed pieces from its entire 60 year history, and before. Items from this collection have been showcased at the Walt Disney Studio, the National Fantasy Fan Club gatherings (now the Disneyana Fan Club), the D23 Expo, and perhaps the highest honor, at Disneyland itself. Disneyland itself is a collection, first dreamed of then carefully brought to life by Walt Disney himself. He filled the park with visions of what he cherished himself: the nostalgia tinted past, his visions of the future, and the fantasies of today. He shared his collection with all of us; now this collection is shared with you. Enjoy the catalog, and please, don’t forget to get your hand stamped on the way out.

The Story of Disneyland

I Love Disneyland. I know that’s hardly a controversial statement. Disneyland is literally Walt Disney’s imagination. It’s his creative fantasy brought to life for us to walk through, thrill to and laugh to. It’s his original dreams come true, and where new dreams are made and shared by every one of us that is lucky enough to enter the Magic Kingdom. My personal connection is a little stronger than most. I was one of the artists who was asked to move from working in animation at the studio to WED Enterprises, now Walt Disney Imagineering, in the late 50’s. At WED, I developed concepts for the Haunted Mansion, redesigned the Adventureland Bazaar, and designed and sculpted Tiki Gods for The Enchanted Tiki Room. I was a key designer on attractions for the 1964-’65 World’s Fair, particularly “it’s a small world”. When “small world” eventually moved to Disneyland, I oversaw the redesign for the new space, and the new façade with animated clock. I still love seeing people coming out of “small world” with a smile. I still love Disneyland. It’s human nature to want to hold onto that joy, which is where collecting, begins. There’s just something special about having a tangible object that instantly takes you back to your visit – whether it’s a souvenir mug that joins your collection or simply a partially used admission ticket saved from that special day. This collection is an amazing overview of the incredible amount of design work that goes into every detail of the Disney Park experience. From the Drinking Pirate Skeleton, right down that well-loved ticket stub, Imagineers and artists at Disney designed, discussed, and refined each one of those pieces to make it the best possible. This collection is a marvelous overview of the best of mid-century design work, all brought together in one place. It’s a testament to all the Imagineers and Cast Members and of course, Walt himself who made these fabulous, fanciful visions come to life in our parks. Did I mention, I love Disneyland?

Walt never told any of us early Imagineers that all sorts of materials used to design and build Disneyland would be of any value once their useful days were done. But of course, how would he know in 1955 that by the 1980s Disneyland fan clubs would burst onto the scene wanting anything from Disneyland that had been cast aside that would eventually become valued treasure. Had I known, or even anticipated this phenomenon, I sure would have snitched a trove of “used” items that would have made quite a collection for myself. But others, especially fans who love Walt Disney so much, have gathered their own treasure troves, such as what is now placed on offer at the Gallery. To all who come to this happy place, the Van Eaton Galleries, welcome! For those of you lucky enough to actually take home an early part of Disneyland, I know you’ll share the emotion with me of just what Disneyland means to all who cherish Walt’s special creation of the magic. As the Imagineer who was given the task of designing so many rides, trains, and vehicles for Walt, I feel so honored to see so many of my vehicular creations go, not to the scrapyard, but to collectors who will love and cherish them. While a ride vehicle is a lot larger and harder to care for than a Disneyland ticket book, this auction will offer the chance to acquire something of size and value that is a true piece of Americana - Walt Disney’s beloved Disneyland.

The Story of Disneyland FOREWORD GOOD LORD, WHY? Beyond the obvious primeval urges to hoard or gather, why do people collect things? Not nuts for the Winter or twigs for the nest- I’m taking about mementos. Objects which, in some way, represent something to the one who collects them. On a deep level, you could say it’s love…or at least an emblem of it, which is hot-wired to an emotional upper. If you’re a masochist, I suppose you might collect emblems of sorrow. I have no such appetites. For me, I happen to be a product of good ol’ American popular culture. One that even still radiates comfort and excess from its post-war flash point in the middle of the 20th century. No other country has had quite the same optimistically commercial trajectory that the United States did coming out of the hell that was World War II. American culture, in its wonderfully shallow way, has been shaped by greed, envy, restlessness and most importantly, commerce. Since the birth of the Industrial Age, America endured seismic cultural shifts on a regular basis. Name any other country that has had the frequency of cultural quantum leaps that America has had. When you mention the 1920s, very specific cultural symbols come to mind. Compare that with say, the 1960s. Not exactly the same, yet each built on a foundation of what came before it. Cut through the strata of America’s cultural pyramid and you gain perspective on an incredibly rich and diverse popular heritage. I collect America’s pop-culture relics because they trigger my happy place. In many cases, it’s not necessarily the objects in of themselves. Rather, my interest lies with the mavericks that initiated such pop-culture. Just knowing that same wonderful combo of greed, envy, restlessness and commerce fueled them too, is exciting; Each generation inspiring the next yet, always ending up with something different. WHO? Walt Disney. Not the logo. Not the “one man’s dream” schmaltz or his unfortunate corporate image, violated like a thrift store ventriloquist dummy. No. Simply the man himself and what he was about. That’s what I dig. It’s because of Walt, and how his theme park represented a mid-point in the life path for this “builder of ideas”, that I collect Disneyland. Everything he had done up until Disneyland’s realization had progression. Walt’s business motivation, it seems to me, is unlike many corporately run “creative” companies today. Walt was a thinker AND he was a responsible businessman. He was never glib about being both, which is important. Each step he took was forward and with each of those strides, his confidence grew. Walt truly believed, and his record shows, that if you have talent and have true creative initiative, you will be rewarded. “Follow your gut.” “Don’t get hung up on the nickel and the dime will come.” “Give the best presentation you can and your customers will return your investment with loyalty.” Ya know, there’s a reason Disney park attendance is bursting 60 years after it’s inception. HOW? I suppose because I work in his chosen vocation of animation, I can clearly see Walt’s creative progression. Disneyland is everywhere in Walt’s past and why it’s so naturally a jumping off point to the audacious plans in Florida he unfortunately did not live to realize. Walt’s work has always been about bettering an “experience”. He was an appreciator of others work and being an innovator himself, was always looking for a way to distill the subject at hand into a potent, easy to swallow pill. The push for realism in his films was about nothing more than magnifying his audience’s immersion into the entertainment he was selling them. Mainly though, his record shows that his creative motivations often involved the challenge of solving a simple problem. EXAMPLE: While attending a classical concert in Los Angeles with his wife, Lillian, Walt began to reason why classical music wasn’t “for everybody.” If a common consumer didn’t like classical music, perhaps it’s because

8


they aren’t quite sure how to enjoy it. Is there a way to make classical music available intellectually to everyone? Disneyland you can say has it foundations in Disney’s 1940 film, Fantasia. With his animated “concert feature”, Walt took on the broad thematic subject of classical music. He sought to refine it to its core, how HE saw it at least, and strove to present it in a perspective the average person might have overlooked. Fantasia has a hub, just like Disneyland. In the case of the film, that ‘central hub’ is a familiar landmark of the live action narrator and his orchestra. With each new piece of music, the audience is sent on a musical journey of a different classical composition and then returned to home base to be launched off to yet another. Fantasia, Walt said, “will never be completed and new animated chapters will be inserted from time to time.” Sound familiar? EXAMPLE #2: Sitting on a park bench along with other patient parents, all watching from a distance while their children enjoyed the local carousel, Walt again put his creative problem solving to work. How about a place where children AND parents can have fun together? I love Disneyland because of that personal, creative motivation of Walt’s curiosity. Disneyland was created for him. His genius is that what usually worked for him, generally hit that hard-to-target central emotion nerve in the common man. I could truly go ON and ON about what I think is so wonderful about Disneyland. Its concepts, its execution, its kitchy status in the annals of pop-culture. The fact that the place is a virtual television set, offering its participants the option of ‘changing the channel’ every time they re-enter the Hub. It’s artistry? My lord. Just go down the roster of absolute creative masters that make up the WED Imagineering staff and you realize what a genius Walt Disney was at choosing staff and delegating to them. Surely, Walt didn’t make Disneyland on his own. This collection in its totality, represents all these things I have and will always appreciate. The collection is not about every ticket or every attraction poster ever made. It’s a narrative that evokes what Disneyland is about. Its artisans, its cast members, its master designers and most importantly, its creator. This collection is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams and the hard facts that make up the Story of Disneyland.

The Story of Disneyland

INFLUEN CES When Archivist Dave Smith first opened Walt Disney’s desk, tucked in one drawer were dozens of rolls of 35mm b&w still negatives that Walt had shot himself. Many of these showed his family gatherings and travels, but they also documented his visits to many of the places that inspired Disneyland. In the 1930’s, Walt lived in Los Feliz, and Griffith Park and its carrousel were just down the hill. Walt sometimes took his daughters, Diane and Sharon, and nephew Roy E. there. He sat on the concrete bench eating peanuts and watching as the children rode, and he said that was the moment he was inspired to create an amusement park himself, one that children and parents could enjoy together. Knott’s Berry Farm was also an inspiration for Disneyland, and Walt was good friends with Walter Knott. Walt’s negatives show that he carefully studied the old west shops and figures in the ghost town that Knott had bought and transported to Buena Park to entertain visitors as they waited for dinner at Cordelia’s chicken restaurant. It’s likely that’s when he first imagined Frontierland. Beverly Park in Los Angeles also inspired Walt. Opened in 1943, it operated on less than an acre in the heart of the city, featuring about a dozen “kiddie sized” rides at most times, and a nearby pony ride. Walt visited with owner David Bradley repeatedly, and liked to ask kids themselves what they like most in the park. In 1950 Bradley began consulting with Walt for Disneyland by photographing amusement parks in Europe, and guiding Walt towards such keen design points as building Main Street at 7/8th scale to help give it a quaint, nostalgic look. A visit to Coney Island – with tawdry, run-down rides and surly barkers and operators – almost discouraged Walt from pursuing his own dream of opening an amusement park. That turned around when he visited Tipoli Gardens in Copenhagen, Denmark on a trip with Lillian. Well kept, tame rides, immaculate landscaping with profuse flowers, and spotless facades and walkways renewed Walt’s inspiration. “Now this is what an amusement place should be!” he’s said to have exclaimed to Lilly. Visitors strolling the pathways of Tivoli Gardens at night well recognize in the light bulb-traced outlines of the buildings, their influence on Main Street U.S.A. at Disneyland.

1. WALT DISNEY HAND-PAINTED AND HAND-CRAFTED “LILLY BELLE” MINIATURE POT BELLY STOVE. (Walt Disney, 1950) Walt Disney was known to have a love for minatures and a fascination for trains, both of which heavily influenced him when conceiving his idea for a theme park. In the late 1940s Disney built a small-scale railroad, the “Carolwood Pacific”, in the backyard of his home on Carolwood Drive. He crafted a miniature pot-bellied stove for the caboose as a training project to acquaint himself with the tooling equipment. He so enjoyed crafting and painting the stove, that he made several more. Some he gave to friends and some he sent to an antique gift shop in New York, where two were purchased by Mrs. James Ward Thorne, known to have one of the most famous miniature collections in the world. All in all, Disney crafted and hand-painted about 100 of these miniature stoves, each with a different design. This example, hand-painted by Disney in a turn of the century motif, measures 5.5 in. tall. Although missing its doors, it still retains the charm of the maker and the attention to detail that Disney would eventually devote to his theme park. $15,000-$20,000

The Story of Disneyland

OPENING DAY On July 17th, 1955, the big day finally came: Disneyland was opening. Since October of 1954, the Disneyland TV show on ABC had been giving the public tantalizing peeks at the amazing experiences to come, and progress reports on the herculean effort of the Park’s construction. For the opening day press preview, about 6,000 reporters and VIPs were invited, and a staggering 22,000 extra guests showed up with counterfeit tickets! Beyond those attending in person, the entire country was watching as ABC televised the opening ceremonies. For the fledgling television industry, this meant the largest live broadcast production attempted to that date, requiring enough equipment for twelve complete TV stations, including over 85,000 feet of broadcast cable, 20 audio mixing boards, and 29 television cameras. Equipment was borrowed from TV and radio stations all over the country, as far away as Seattle and New York City. Art Linkletter, a beloved television host and personal friend of Walt Disney, hosted the broadcast and recruited two of his friends to co-host, Bob Cummings and future President, Ronald Reagan. Fess Parker, star of the hugely popular Davy Crockett episodes of the Disneyland series took part in the opening ceremonies, and viewers were also introduced to a group that would soon be the next national sensation, the Mickey Mouse Club. It’s hard, from today’s perspective, to imagine a world before Disneyland and the other Disney theme parks. The mid-50’s was already a time of great change in American Pop culture. The first rock and roll song, Bill Haley and the Comets “Rock Around the Clock” debuted in 1954, changing the music industry forever by creating a new sound that brought together the youth of the world. In April 1955, Ray Kroc opened his first McDonald’s franchise in Illinois, transforming the restaurant industry. Disneyland however, changed how we view and experience entertainment forever, becoming the world standard of what a theme park should be. While Disneyland will always be studied and copied, it will never be duplicated. 2. ORIGINAL TITLE CEL “PRE-OPENING REPORT FROM DISNEYLAND”. (Disneyland, 1955) Rare original title cel used for the Disneyland TV show on July 13th, 1955, just days before the opening of the park. This was the final episode of the show devoted to the building of Disneyland. The untrimmed cel measures 10.5 x 12.5 in. In fine condition with very light grazing in paint. $1,500-$2,000

3. PRE-OPENING CAST MEMBER EMPLOYEE PACKET. (Disneyland, 1955) Rare intact packet of new hire materials for Disneyland cast members just one month before the parks official opening. The amazingly scarce materials within include a lovely mat finish portrait of Walt, application and hire documents, a temporary employee ID card, an insurance plan booklet, a hand-signed introduction letter by C.V. Wood Jr, Disneyland Vice-President, and one of the most rare employee booklets in the realm of Disneyland collecting, the first employee handbook; “Your Disneyland - A Guide For Hosts and Hostesses. These packets were available to pre-opening employees and contain early information on employment and operating procedures as a new cast member. Packet measures 8.5 x 10.5 in. All in fine condition. $1,600-$2,000 4. “DATELINE DISNEYLAND” RAW SOUNDTRACK FOR OPENING DAY BROADCAST. (Disneyland, 1955) Incredibly rare set of (16) acetate disks used for the live music soundtrack on the opening day broadcast, Dateline Disneyland. The 16 in. diameter disks were used during the broadcast to supply all music and musical cues. Technology at the time required a sound man in the control booth literally playing the music from each record on cue to mix with the live broadcast. In very good condition, but not tested for playability. $2,500-$3,500

12


5. WALT DISNEY SIGNED OPENING DAY “THE STORY OF DISNEYLAND” GUIDEBOOK. (Disneyland, 1955) Beautiful opening day guidebook hand-signed by Walt Disney. Titled “The Story of Disneyland”, this was the first guidebook issued by the park. Signed on the inside cover by Walt Disney on opening day, this is an extremely rare piece of Disney history. So much so, that we have never come across another offered. The guidebook has been professionally framed and presents the open guidebook and signature beautifully. In fine condition.

Known as the “Pre-Opening Concept Cards”, these cards were produced for sale at the various souvenir outlets in the park on opening day. Because they were printed before any finished images existed, concept art was used for early souvenir imagery as opposed to actual photographs of the park.

(Disneyland, 1955) This gorgeous full color news supplement was issued by California area newspapers a mere two days before the grand opening of Disneyland. It was a no-holds-barred push on Disney’s part to saturate the media markets with everything Disneyland right before the premier. This paper was a paid advertisement, brimming with info and amazing concept art from the park’s development. Hard to find in good condition as they were printed on newsprint with the daily run by participating newspaper presses. $200-$300

14


10. FESS PARKER SIGNED OPENING DAY DAVY CROCKETT FRONTIER MUSEUM AND MERCANTILE FLAG. (Disneyland, 1955) A very scarce silkscreened flag that decorated the Davy Crockett Frontier Museum and Mercantile in Frontierland on opening day of the park and throughout the next year. At the time the park opened, Disney’s Davy Crockett franchise, starring Fess Parker, had grown to record breaking status in popularity. To meet the consumer demand for everything Davy Crockett, Walt made sure the “King of the Wild Frontierland” had a major presence in the park. The Davy Crockett Frontier Museum featured historic artifacts, props, and a deluge of merchandise to appease the masses. This flag was hand-signed by Fess Parker and was acquired by the collection owner directly. Measuring 13 x 17 in. and in good condition with wear from use. $1,000-$2,000

11. OPENING DAY PRESS PREVIEW TICKET. (Disneyland, 1955) Rare silver opening day press preview ticket.

WELCOME TO DISNEYLAND When you’re a kid, the trip to Disneyland begins the moment you hear you’ll be going. The days – maybe weeks! – until that special event are sheer torture of anticipation – plotting and planning which attraction you’ll go on first, where you’ll eat lunch. If you’re able to get any sleep the night before, you’re up at the crack of dawn and ready to leave. On the drive to the Park it was impossible not to play the game of “Who can spot the Matterhorn first.” Once that white-capped mountain peak was spotted, you know you were finally close. In recent years, it shares that landmark role with California Adventure’s Tower of Terror or Mickey’s Fun Wheel ferris wheel, depending on the direction of your approach. Before 1998 and the construction of the Mickey and Friends Parking Garage, you parked right in front of Disneyland where California Adventure and Downtown Disney are today. Next came noting which section of the lot you parked in – is it a favorite character, Bambi or Pinocchio perhaps? How close is it to the Monorail track that flies right through the middle of the lot? Getting into Disneyland itself provided you with a wealth of paper ephemera that’s all highly collectible today. Admission or Main Gate tickets, attraction ticket books (before 1982) varied through the years, and those with particularly short runs are most valued.Entering the turnstile brought colorful flyers announcing new or upcoming attractions, and weekly guides to the shows, parades you could choose from to experience in your visit.

25. CONSTRUCTION USED DISNEYLAND BROWNLINE PLOT PLAN. (WED, 1950s) An absolutely stunning artifact from the construction of Disneyland. This February 14, 1955 plot plan overview featuring the main section of the property is a rarity. It covers the last formative stages as construction of the park hurtled towards its opening, a mere five months later. It’s fascinating to still find at this late period, unfamiliar areas and attractions that never came to be; features such as an “Open Skeet Range”, “Arboretum” and “Archery Range”. Drawn by famed Disneyland planner, Marvin Davis, it is the ultimate park map in both detail and history. Construction artifacts are rare and brownlines such as this are almost non-existent. The process is similar to blue-printing where a scale mechanical drawing is photographically reproduced through a photo-chemical process. This technique was almost exclusively used by WED Enterprises during the planning and construction of the park. Rendered at 50’ feet to the inch, the piece measures 43” x 63” and is professionally framed. The brownline has been conservation restored, de-acidified and mounted on linen. Special shipping arrangements will apply. $12,000-$15,000

DISNEYLAND SIGN AND PICTORIAL DEPARTMENT

175. DISNEYLAND SIGN & PICTORIAL DEPARTMENT REFERENCE PHOTO ARCHIVE. (Disneyland, 1950s-1970s) Incredible 1950s-1970s Disneyland Sign & Pictorial Dept. reference photo archive. For the casual collector or dedicated Disneyland scholar, here is an unprecedented historical photo archive directly from the original Disneyland Sign & Pictorial Department. Before digitally created imagery and computer inventory, the best way for the prolific DS&P department to archive their work was to literally, walk around the park and shoot photographs of recently completed projects. This way, the photo archive could be referenced when any type of signage needed to be replicated. Before Photoshop and the ink-jet printer’s use at the park, practically every single letter and image of posted signage at Disneyland was hand-rendered by absolute masters of the craft. Upon the initiation of the Disneyland project, Walt rounded up as many of the old movie studio masters who were quickly becoming extinct in Hollywood. He created a haven for these artisans with the park’s Sign & Pictorial Department. Once in place, Walt insisted this department install a mentorship program, where young apprentices would inherit the tricks of the trade. This insured the park would benefit, while an incredible artisan-trade would not wither and die. This absolutely stunning visual record of that department’s work in Disneyland’s ‘golden age’ is testament to the artistry of this division. The archive was handed down to the apprentice-turned-eventual supervisor of the department from his mentor. This personal record of the department’s work through the years shows detail after detail of rarely seen areas in Disneyland. Perhaps the occasional bit of rare signage or an elusive ticket booth might show up in the blurry background of a guest’s photo, but rarely are these details centered on as the object of focus. Amazing, rarely seen details throughout such as the ticket booths for the Viewliner and Space Station X-1, area directional signage, posted ticket denomination signs, the Main Gate ticket booths and rare attraction marquees. This collection (not all pictured), stands alone as an undeniable record of Disneyland’s high standards. Everything from directional signage to the Main Street credit window….restroom sign to exit sign…buckskin banners to works in progress are all represented. Black and white contact sheets to color snapshots and 8 x 10 prints make up the collection. A one of a kind collection, worthy of publication. The archive contains (60) 8 x 10 in. black and white prints, (1) 8 x 10 in. color print, (8) 8 x 10 in. black and white contact sheets, (1) 4 x 6 in. color print, (65) 3.5 x 5 in. color prints, and (48) 3.5 x 3.5 color prints. Collection is in fine condition. $5,000-$7,000

176. DISNEYLAND SIGN & PICTORIAL DEPARTMENT GLASS CHIP MIRROR SIGN. (Disneyland, 1970’s) What a beauty! An absolute testament to the pride, artistry and craftsmanship present in many of the original maintenance and creative divisions of Disneyland. This stunning piece of art was created by the Sign & Pictorial Department’s Supervisor and hung in the main office of said department within the park. Done in the centuries-old technique of reverse-painted, glue chip glass; a method of silk-screening paint and frisket to glass and following up with acid etching, sand blasting, chemical glue-chipping the surface and finally gilding with silver and gold leaf. This technique was passed down from the earliest artisans hired at Disneyland in 1954 to the apprentices working under them. Some original examples can still be found within Main Street, USA and subtle parts of New Orleans Square such as the Club 33 address sign. This is a breath-taking reminder of the workmanship and pride held by this valued division of Walt’s theme park. The sign itself measures 27.5 x 16.5 in. and 39 x 25.25 in. in its original frame. $8,500-$9,500

195. MAIN STREET FIRE DEPARTMENT CAP BADGE. (Disneyland, 1957) A rare original hat badge for a member of the Disneyland Fire Department, located on Main Street. The numbers were small for the department as they were more a themed organization than fully fledged fire department.

197. 1955 HORSELESS CARRIAGE GAZETTE MAGAZINE. (Disneyland, 1955) A rare club newsletter/magazine for the “Horseless Carriage Club of America”. Disney was very keen on hosting various themed clubs events in whatever area of the park the organization specialized in. In this case, the “Horseless Carriage Club” would hold an annual event on Main Street in keeping with the turn-of-thecentury theme. With a parade of early automobiles, the events would traverse Main Street and have a parked display in Town Square. Usually, these events called for themed attire as well. In Walt’s mind, this type of inclusive exposure helped both the clubs and the theming of his park’s various lands. $100-$200

(Disneyland, 1970/80s) Hand-painted metal hanging sign that was made to be mounted to one of the two stops for the Main Street Fire Engine between Town Square and the hub plaza.

198. MAIN STREET HORSE CARS TICKET SIGN TOPPER. (Disneyland, 1956) Hand-cut metal figural sign topper that was mounted on one of the two stops for the Main Street Horse Cars between Town Square and the Hub.

To make the readability easier, these hand-jigged metal silhouette images were mounted above the corresponding conveyance stop sign. Amazingly delicate in its detail, there were perhaps only two of these made for the park and once they were removed, they were not replaced…perhaps because of the difficulty in manufacturing them. This came from the collection of a former 1950s-60s Disneyland Maintenance Supervisor who rather than throw out outdated artifacts from the park upon removal, kept a growing collection in his garage. Measuring 6.25 x 19 in. and in very good condition. $2,500-$3,500

The Story of Disneyland

GREAT MOMENTS WITH MR. LINCOLN STAGE LIGHTING MODELS As in any live stage production, the balance of lighting, make-up, costume and set design combine to create an effect. When done well, that effect is wholly one of purpose and intention. In the bold stage presentation of Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln, these theatrical elements are even more pronounced and important. In this case, a “Robot” is the focus of the presentation and all of these theatrical tools are what will define the line between success and humiliating failure. Needless to say, Disney succeeded, and this amazing attraction from 1964, still entertains guests to this day. These particular Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy (Kennedy is from the 1971 Disney World attraction) “stand-in” head props were used for make-up, costume and stage lighting tests while the actual Audio-Animatronic figures of the Presidents were still under construction. The likenesses of Lincoln and Kennedy were created by master WED sculptor, Blaine Gibson. He was featured in promotional films of the period along with Walt, explaining his techniques to create these likenesses. Although considered a sleeper attraction today, historically the Lincoln show’s boldness is often overlooked. One needs only to project themselves to 1963 and acknowledge the sheer nerve it took for such a presentation. Walt Disney and his team of wizards created a show for a world stage, featuring a technology in its’ infancy. It is difficult to imagine the high-stakes gamble he took. Yet another reason to celebrate the art of WED Imagineering.

325. TIKI’S TROPICAL TRADERS RETAIL SHOPPING BAG. (Disneyland, 1957) An early paper shopping bag from the Tiki’s Tropical Traders souvenir stand in Adventureland.

IIn 1963, a new form of life emerged from the jungles of Adventureland: audio-animatronic. The Enchanted Tiki Room opened, with 150 Polynesian plants, birds, and Tiki figures all performing to delight the audience. Previously, the animals seen in the attractions like The Jungle Cruise and Mine Train Through Nature’s Wonderland were limited to simple, mechanical movement loops. The birds of The Tiki Room could not only sing, but also turn their heads and look around, and even puff up their chests as they took a deep breath to hit a high note. The Enchanted Tiki Room represents a very unusual arrangement between Walt Disney and Disneyland. Initially, the Tiki Room was owned by Disney through WED Enterprises and his personal management company, RETLAW (Walter spelled backwards). He funded the project independently through WED (whenever Disney’s ideas grew too fast to go through the normal studio red tape, he simply did it himself). For the first several years, a separate ticket had to be purchased directly from the Tiki Room ticket booth which repaid the WED investment. WED in turn, actually rented space within Disneyland to operate the attraction. The Tiki Room was an immediate hit, and commanded its own 75¢ admission ticket at a time when the adult Main Entrance ticket cost just $1.60.

ENCHANTED TIKI ROOM LANI PRE-SHOW As Disneyland grew, so did the crowds and the wait times for attractions. With the opening of the Enchanted Tiki Room, and its’ twenty minute show turnaround, Disney and his Imagineers knew that they would have to keep the guests entertained as they waited for the next show. The pre-show at the Enchanted Tiki Room entrance not only entertained, but also gave guests a crash-course in Polynesian Folklore. At the finale of the pre-show, “Tangaroa”, the Tree of Life, the father of all Gods and Goddesses, pronounces “From my limbs, let new life fall!” Tangaroa-Ru Babies, symbols of new life magically fall from his branches. These Polynesian-style figures were partially based on figural carvings from cross- Polynesian cultures. Designed by Imagineer Rolly Crump (who incidentally, designed the entire pre-show), each figure is unique in size and décor. Extremely rare.

The Story of Disneyland

346. ENCHANTED TIKI ROOM “COUROC OF MONTEREY” SOUVENIR DECORATOR TRAY. (Disneyland, 1965) Couroc of Monterey was a well-known artisan gallery and manufacturer of high quality, specialty craft items using hand-inlaid materials. The owner and operator, Moira Wallace was the wife of Guthrie Courvoisier, owner of Courvoisier Galleries, a longtime business partner and friend of Walt Disney who had a very successful partnership in the 1930s and 40s marketing Disney animation artwork. “Couroc” is a combination of the family name, Courvoisier and ‘rock’ to imply strength for its specialized black resin used to create elaborate inlaid products. The company made many decorator items from the 1940s through the 1990s. Just as with animation art in the 1930s, Disney continued to give the Courvoisier family access to his creations at Disneyland. A natural fit for their products in the park was Adventureland. Taken with the Enchanted Tiki Room attraction, Wallace made this very rare tray based on the cast member costume textile design. The materials making up the design are inlaid metals, woods, sand and rocks. An extremely rare piece, so much so that this is the only tray of its kind that we have seen offered for public sale. Overall size 12.5” x 18” x .75” deep $1,000-$2,000

357. DISNEYLAND ENCHANTED TIKI ROOM ANIMATRONIC® TIKI BIRD. (Disneyland, 1970s) Opening in 1963, the Enchanted Tiki Room was the first attraction to use Audio-Animatronic® characters in the park.

The presentation features a cast of over 150 talking and singing birds, tikis, and flowers. The innovative and advanced technology for the time required a massive computer system, which required the attraction to be air-conditioned; a first at Disneyland. Purchased from an Imagineer that worked on the attraction, this animatronic female bird was a member of the “chorus” and still has her pneumatic cables and control mechanisms inside. Constructed of Fiberglass, paint, feathers, and wool, the 27 in. bird (from bottom feather to top) has been mounted in a custom lit display case measuring 64 x 17 x 17 in.

In early 2000, the original A-frame structure, entirely made of wood and bamboo, began to collapse from age. The finial was removed and placed backstage for demolition. The piece was purchased from an Imagineer that rescued it from demolition. He later commissioned tiki carver, Leroy Schmaltz of Oceanic Arts to construct the wood base for the finial.

The Story of Disneyland

The Golden Horseshoe Review actually debuted four days before Disneyland did; the first show was at Walt & Lilian’s 30th wedding anniversary party, held at the soon to be opened park on July 13, 1955. That first performance went off without a hitch (including a moment when a tipsy Walt climbed over the rail of his private box and down to the stage!), and was followed up with a record 47,250 performances. Wally Boag led the show as Pecos Bill from the beginning, but in 1956 was joined by Betty Taylor, who took over and owned the role of Sluefoot Sue for the next three decades.

(Disneyland, 1960s) Frontierland’s first citizen, well-known landmark and popular photo subject was this Cigar Store Indian, who stood watch in front of the Frontierland Trading Post for years. There were always two cigar store Indians at Disneyland, a red-caped one in front of the Main Street Tobacco Store, and this green caped one in Frontierland. Originally sculpted at the Disney Studio, a mold for fiberglass castings (“pulls”) was created so that the Indians could be replaced after wear and tear from use in the park. To this day, “pulls” are made from the original molds and are still in place at Disneyland. It is estimated that these fiberglass props would be replaced every five to ten years. This figure was removed sometime in the late 1970s and was sent to the Burbank Prop Department for use by the studio. Eventually it was placed in a Disney Studio prop department sale. The figure stands 70 in. tall and is in very good condition with paint fading and chipping as well as scratches and nicks from years of silently entertaining guests at the park. An amazingly rare and important artifact from the park. $30,000- $35,000

The Story of Disneyland

Opening in 1966 as the first new “land” since opening day, New Orleans square covered about three acres. The intricate series of streets that weave through the area are based on 19th century New Orleans and feature shops, restaurants, and the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction. The following year, the Haunted Mansion attraction opened and the square has remained mostly intact since then. The dedication ceremony in July of 1966 was Walt Disney’s last public appearance at Disneyland before his death.

480. NEW ORLEANS SQUARE “NEAR-ATTRACTION” POSTER FROM THE MAIN STREET EMPORIUM. (Disneyland, 1966) A very scarce ”near-attraction” poster from the Summer of 1966. This beautiful 30 x 22 in. printed poster was part of a set of (6) images that were actually displayed in the park as attraction posters, but also formally sold individually at the Main Street Emporium. They were only available that Summer and as such, are very hard to come by. In very good condition with minor wear, some pin holes and light foxing. $400-$600

Initiated by Walt as part of the New Orleans Square expansion for The Pirates of the Caribbean attraction, this exclusive club was to take the place of Walt’s previous backstage showplace within the Red Wagon Inn.

484. RARE CLUB 33 MEMBERSHIP SALES BROCHURE.

485. CLUB 33 TABLE AND CHAIR SET. (Disneyland, 1967) Table and (2) chairs from the first years of operation at the mysterious Club 33.

487. WROUGHT IRON HANGING STORE SIGN FOR MASCARADS D’ARLEQUIN. (Disneyland, 1965) A very rare, wrought iron suspension bracket, sign and frame from the original New Orleans Square in 1965. This sign hung in Disneyland from 1965 to sometime into the early 1990s. The location was originally the La Boutique D’Or”shop and sometime in the 1970s, the ‘business was re-themed as the Masqarade shop. The signs were changed at that point. This was purchased directly from the estate of a park supervisor. It is most probable that the iron bracket frame dates from a much earlier period than ’65 as it is well documented that the WED art directors were sent to New Orleans with the purpose of securing vintage architectural salvage from the city for aged authenticity in the new themed land. This quality and apparently very old iron sign was part of that acquisition. See the period photo from the 1960s taken from an actual slide in the collection. Note the white paint drip on the lower bracket of the crest frame that matches the marking on the actual piece today. Very heavy. $2,500-$3,000

488. NEW ORLEANS SQUARE PERFUME SHOP BOX. (Disneyland, 1978) A beautiful, graphic folding presentation box from Mlle. Antoinette’s Perfumier Shop in New Orleans Square.

The Story of Disneyland

The Pirates of the Caribbean attraction opened in March of 1967, three months after the death of Walt Disney, who was heavily involved with the creation of the attraction. Originally conceived as a walk-through attraction, development was put on hold in 1963 so that Imagineers could concentrate on the World’s Fair. When development re-launched in 1965, the success of the boat-ride concept being used in It’s a Small World made Disney re-think the idea and re-design the ride. Relying on the talents of some of the great minds at the studio, WED created a thrilling ride and an amazing world populated by audio-animatronic characters. After “punching up” such attractions as Nature’s Wonderland and The Jungle Cruise, storyman Marc Davis was at his peak as he built the scenes and story for this attraction. X. Atencio (responsible for most of the unusual stop motion animation seen at the time in shorts like Noah’s Ark (1959) and the opening credits of The Parent Trap and The Misadventures of Merlin Jones) tackled the difficult task of building out stories from Marc Davis’ already rich scene designs for the Pirates of the Caribbean. He wrote full scripts for this attraction, including the lyrics to the iconic song, Yo Ho (A Pirate’s Life for Me). 490. MARC DAVIS SIGNED PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN SOUVENIR GUIDEBOOK.

495. PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN ORIGINAL GLASS E-TICKET ENTRANCE SIGN. (Disneyland, 1967) Iconic E-Ticket sign from the original entrance of the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction in New Orleans Square. One of only two produced to flank the entrance, it was created by the Disneyland Sign & Pictorial Department. Constructed with high-quality materials it consists of a mounting frame with metal bolt hardware surrounding the delicate glass sign. The glass is “glue-chipped” with reverse silkscreened paint and silver gilding. This technique dates from the 19th Century and was used in several locations within Disneyland, but mostly in New Orleans Square and Main Street (*see other examples in this collection).To this day, there are two surviving signs in New Orleans Square done at the same time in the mid1960s, using the same technique. One at the entrance of Club 33 and the other hanging above the entrance to the ‘Crystal D’Orleans’ shop. Both stunning examples of the signmakers art. This sign notified guests of the ticket denomination required for entrance as found on all attractions in the ticket book era. It remained in position for many years, from 1967 to 1984, when the ticket system was dropped in favor of the universal Disneyland Passport. There is perhaps no item more representative of vintage Disneyland than the iconic, E-Ticket. Acquired directly from a 20+ year ex-supervisor of the Disneyland Sign & Pictorial Department. It gets no more rare than this fabulous item! In fine condition. Special shipping arrangements will apply. $20,000 -$30,000

Especially noteworthy is that Disney hand-picked this particular image to be used as promotional art for the attraction. It is featured in the preview and post-opening guidebooks for both Disneyland and Disney World. The artwork is also featured in the famous set of (12) postcards issued for sale in the newly-opened Pirate Arcade in 1966.

(Disneyland, 1967) Extremely rare complete set of the first postcards issued for The Pirates of the Caribbean attraction in 1967. Walt was so taken with Marc Davis’ concept paintings for the attraction, he insisted that his actual artwork be used in the promotions. Walt commissioned the Pirates of the Caribbean souvenir program and this set of 12 postcards before his death. The cards were available in only one place in the world: a custom pirate-themed coin-op postcard dispenser in the Pieces of Eight shop at the exit to the attraction. They were available in two separate groups of six cards, named Set A and Set B. In later years, the machine was removed and the cards with then sold on a rotating rack of postcards in the same shop.

499. PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN ORIGINAL CURSED DRINKER PROP. (Disneyland, 1967) An extremely rare and iconic attraction-used prop from The Pirates of the Caribbean attraction. The attraction is a story of pirate greed, crime and indulgence. As guests drift through the haunted grottos, a story of demise unfolds. Here lies the mortal remains of pirates, forever frozen in their final moments. In a scene entitled, The Crew’s Quarters, a visual gag was created to evoke to the drunken excess of pirates. Here, the pirates had built a makeshift tavern using gear from their victim’s ships as a refuge to enjoy their pillaged booty. In what must surely be one of the most iconic images from the attraction, a skeletal pirate is forever locked in an eternal guzzle of ill-gotten spirits. The never-ending flow of wine pouring down his mouth and right through his empty torso, creates a magically graphic display. So well-known, the gag was recreated in a scene for the 2003, Gore Vorbinski feature film, “Pirates of the Caribbean”. The figure is placed in the position of a drinking pirate. From the raised bottle over his head, a twisted column of transparent plexiglass runs through his boney chest, giving the appearance of swallowed liquor. This was the first installed figure for this scene dating from the attraction opening in 1967. The wood base and wear are consistent with the damp and humid conditions of the ride building, in particular, the cave grotto sections. The figure comes with a custom display stand, consisting of an old, weathered whiskey barrel featuring a sunken motor mechanism to operate the falling rum effect and internal LED lighting. $60,000 - $80,000 Special shipping arrangements will apply

The Story of Disneyland

The second of the Marc Davis and X. Atencio masterpieces, the Haunted Mansion attraction opened in 1969, however the concept of the attraction had been in development prior to the opening of the park. In 1961, gate flyers announcing the attractions opening in 1963 were distributed. However, just as with the Pirates of The Caribbean attraction, the New York World’s Fair caused development to be halted.

The Story of Disneyland

What began as a hobby for Anaheim residents Randy and Dotti Smith (Randotti) became a sustainable business making early souvenirs for Disneyland (and Disneyland only) in 1956. Their solid plaster cast tikis, skulls and tombstones could be found in the Main Street Magic Shop, Adventureland and later New Orleans Square.

There is perhaps no attraction created by WED Imagineering that more embodies the light-hearted, goodwill and optimism of Walt Disney than, “It’s a Small World.” Offered here are two absolutely unparalleled treasures from this world beloved Disney presentation. Dating from the first incarnation of the eventual Fantasyland attraction, these two exquisite dolls were used in the creation and most probably played an on-stage role in the Pepsi Cola presentation of “It’s A Small World” at the famed, 1964-1965 New York World’s Fair. The figures are an early design of the children. Here, they have large, bright eyes and more broad stage coloring than later versions. The figures are stationary designs where they would be bolted through their foot plates to either a fixed stage position or platform. Because the faces are solid fiberglass, these figure filled silent roles in the show. They each have access doors on their rear sides where access to any mechanical armatures and servos would be fitted. The mechanisms have been long removed. These figures are in wonderful, vintage condition and have been through conservation restoration, and have had clothing recreated using authentic materials by Imagineering specialists. An absolute rarity in the open market and perhaps a once-in-a-lifetime chance to acquire such an iconic treasure of Walt Disney’s lighthearted masterpiece.

626. ORIGINAL BRUCE BUSHMAN CONCEPT FOR TOMORROWLAND. (Disneyland, 1954) An early original concept drawing of Tomorrowland by legendary Imagineer Bruce Bushman. In 1954, the premiere episode of Walt Disney’s “Disneyland “ TV show, featured Disney introducing his theme park and the “lands” it comprised. Of course, since this was still early in the planning and construction phase, there were no photographs or concrete images to show. Therefore he commissioned his top art director, Bruce Bushman to render exciting images of each; the Fantasyland Castle, Adventureland, Frontierland, and Tomorrowland.

DISNEYLAND ALWEG MONORAIL ORIGINAL SIDE PANELS Opening on June 14th, 1959 the monorail began as a sightseeing attraction through Tomorrowland. It was the first daily operating Monorail in the Western Hemisphere. Imagineering legend Bob Gurr headed the team that designed and manufactured the cars, completing the red Mark 1 just in time for the re-dedication of Disneyland. A Blue train was added shortly after, and then in 1961, a Yellow Train was added as the Monorail became a true transportation system, expanding 2.5 miles outside the park to the Disneyland Hotel. These two panels, one from the Mark 1 red monorail and one from the Yellow train could be found on the front sides of the first passenger cars on each. Although Disney was in general partnership with ALWEG corporation for the development of the system, the actual sponsor was Santa Fe. Their contract with Disney stipulated that they were to sponsor all Railways at Disneyland which included the Monorail. These panels were removed from the trains in 1973 when Santa Fe dropped its sponsorship. In 1985, the monorails were replaced with the new Mark V trains.

The Story of Disneyland

Taking on the creation of the world’s first theme park was not a natural step for a motion picture studio. To Walt, it was probably just the next logical step in storytelling – to move from film to interactive, interpersonal experiences. To design Disneyland, Walt created WED Enterprises (later Walt Disney Imagineering), the name taken from his own initials. It’s not surprising that Walt found many of the creative geniuses behind Disneyland in the Studio staff. Mary Blair, who had created visionary and defining concept art for films like So Dear To My Heart and Cinderella, came to design murals for Tomorrowland, and of course was the dominant influence on It’s a Small World. John Hench started in the Disney story department in 1939 before moving into special effects on 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, mainly the hydraulic squid that attacked the Nautilus. In 1955 he moved to WED to work on the Tomorrowland area of Disneyland, and later Space Mountain and Cinderella’s Castle at Walt Disney World. He’s also best remembered for painting Mickey Mouse’s birthday portraits on his 25th, 30th, 35th and up anniversaries. When Walt searched for someone to oversee the construction of an old-fashioned paddle steamer (the Mark Twain) for Disneyland, he found retired Navy Admiral Joe Fowler working as a construction supervisor, and hired him as construction boss for the whole Disneyland project. He stayed on as General Manager of Disneyland for its first ten years, and assisted with the construction of Walt Disney World. Marty Sklar started at Disney with the Disneyland News for opening day, and returned in 1956 (after graduating UCLA) responsible for the park’s publicity and marketing materials. In 1961, he moved to WED where he oversaw the design of attractions for the World’s Fair, and later EPCOT and Tokyo Disneyland. Marc Davis is equally well known for his role as one of Disney’s Legendary Nine Old Men – animating iconic characters such as Snow White, Tinker Bell, and Cruella de Vil – as for his character design and story work at Imagineering on the Jungle Cruise, Pirates of the Caribbean, and The Haunted Mansion. Davis had the unique ability to encapsulate in a single drawing an entire story – implying humor and animation on a piece of paper. His wife Alice Davis designed costumes for the animatronic figures of it’s a small world, General Electric’s Carousel of Progress, and Pirates of the Caribbean. X. Atencio was a Disney artist as early as 1938, and was responsible for most of the unusual stop motion animation seen at the time in shorts like Noah’s Ark (1959) and the opening credits of The Parent Trap and The Misadventures of Merlin Jones. He moved to WED in 1965 to help design the Primeval World diorama that was being added beside the Grand Canyon diorama on the Disneyland railroad. He also tackled the difficult task of building out stories from Marc Davis’ already rich scene designs for the Pirates of the Caribbean and The Haunted Mansion. He wrote full scripts for both those attractions, including the lyrics to their iconic songs, Yo Ho (A Pirate’s Life for Me) and Grim Grinning Ghosts. Sam McKim’s started at WED in 1955 as a concept artist for Disneyland, drawing some of the earliest views of Frontierland and Main Street. He worked on many of the attractions for the World’s Fair, as well as drawing the first concept of the Haunted Mansion to be presented to the public in a 1958 magazine article – eleven years before the attraction opened! Above and beyond such significant work, he’s best known for illustrating some of the most popular Disneyland collectibles ever – the maps of the park from 1958 until 1964. Although he retired in 1987, he came back to draw the first souvenir map of Disneyland Paris in 1992. Bruce Bushman started at Disney in 1936 as a layout artist, and worked his way up to art director on Pinocchio, Fantasia, and later live-action television productions such as the Mickey Mouse Club. In 1953 he moved over to work on Disneyland development, contributing to Fantasyland, Tomorrowland, and the overall layout of the entire property. He’s also credited with designing the most iconic structure of Disneyland, Sleeping Beauty’s Castle. Rolly Crump was working as an animation in-betweener when Walt Disney took note of the colorful decorative propellers he designed. Moved over to WED, he worked on many of the attractions for the New York World’s Fair, including the Tower of the Four Winds and it’s a small world. The Haunted Mansion contains many of his unusual and evocative designs, although the infamous “Museum of the Weird” he planned to follow the Mansion never came to be. Bob Gurr’s contribution to Disneyland is monumental; he designed the Matterhorn Bobsleds, the first all-steel roller coaster in the world. Gurr first came to Disney in 1954 to design a body for the Autopia cars, impressing Walt so well that he soon became “the car guy” at WED. Antique cars, Omnibuses, and Flying Saucers all benefited from his oversight. Aside from the Matterhorn, Gurr was instrumental in the other major additions to Disneyland in 1959, the Monorail and the Submarine Voyage. Before retiring from WED in 1981, he contributed to all the ride and transportation systems for Walt Disney World.

763. BOB GURR SIGNED AUTOMOBILE DESIGN BOOK.

This softcover book came out the year of Disneyland’s opening, not long after he designed the early Autopia vehicles. A graduate of Art Center in Pasadena, California, Gurr was designer at the Ford Motor Company before being hired by Disney to design the Autopia cars on last minute notice. What started as a temporary design job became a life-long association with the park. Signed by Gurr on the front title page.

764. ALWEG MONORAIL LOS ANGELES PROPOSAL. (WED, 1961) Soon after the opening of his Monorail system Disneyland, Walt attempted to interest the Los Angeles government into investing in a Disney designed monorail system for city. Only proposed informally, the city did not take Walt up on the offer and with the World’s Fair project taking up most of his attention, he dropped the proposal. Alweg, the German manufacturer of the Monorail’s conveyance patent and partial sponsor at Disneyland, picked up the ball where Walt left off.

766. DISNEYLAND TENCENNIAL 1965 TEN YEAR SERVICE AWARD PLAQUE. (Disneyland, 1965)In 1965, Disneyland’s “Tencennial” or the Tenth Year Anniversary was a heavily celebrated milestone. Walt held a particular pride in how far his gamble had come in only one decade…both in how long and fast it took to get there. Because the ‘gamble’ had paid off so handsomely in both financial and critical success, Walt held WED and Disneyland staff very close to his heart. Perhaps even more so than Studio personnel. Disneyland was his baby in 1965, Walt held a huge cast member event at the Disneyland Hotel to kick off the year’s festivities and at this event, cast members who had been there since the beginning were issued this special service award for their loyalty. Displays beautifully, still in its original presentation box. $400-600

770. WED FLORIDA PROJECT EPCOT AND WALT DISNEY WORLD MASTER PLANNING BOARD. (WED, 1967) A 34 x 23 in. photo mounted on board featuring the early planning stages of Walt Disney World and EPCOT as originally planned by Walt Disney. After the World’s Fair, Disney knew his far reaching goals could not be contained in his small Anaheim property and new territory was needed. After much secrecy, Disney’s Florida “land-grab” was made public and master planning went into full swing. At the WED offices in Glendale, California, a “Florida War Room” was erected. Here, master planning took place for what became e known as “The Florida Project”. Imagineers such as Marvin Davis, John Hench, Joe Potter, Marty Sklar and Walt himself tirelessly used this room to translate one man’s fanciful notion into a sprawling reality. This WED board room was lined with huge drawings and high altitude photographs to offer the designers a proper perspective on their project. Walt’s final on-screen pitch, “The EPCOT Film” was shot in a recreation of this planning office using actual maps and drawings from the room itself. Walt intriguingly motioned to the towering maps and photographs around him to explain his far-reaching plans. This photo mosaic is from that war room as planning progressed shortly after Disney’s death and features master planning drawings laid over high altitude photographs of the whole Disney World property. At this stage, EPCOT was still very much an actual city of tomorrow, complete with residential green belts and a high-volume airport of the future. The Magic Kingdom “theme park” is present and takes up a tiny portion of the North-West corner of the property. The piece is still in its original studio wood frame. A very rare artifact from the offices of WED Enterprises in Glendale, California. Acquired from the estate of Imagineering President, Mel Melton. In fine condition. Unexamined out of frame. $3,000-$4,000

The Story of Disneyland 771. RARE WED “PROJECT X” DOCUMENT FILE. (WED, 1965-67) Fascinating group of documents from the desk of WED Enterprises President, Mel Melton. Perhaps no other Walt Disney project provides more mystery, speculation and simple fascination than the far-reaching plans of the mysterious, ”Project X’. “The Florida Project” was the public working title of the development, which eventually became known as Walt Disney World. Even though the Magic Kingdom theme park grew to become the cornerstone, Walt’s original concept for the “Experimental Prototype Community Of Tomorrow” was actually what the Florida land acquisition was all about. WED Enterprises in Glendale, California re-engaged their colleagues in project development, Economic Research Associates to study everything from market research, population growth, legislative opportunities, Government assistance, alternative financing and tourist projections. Just as they had done in 1953-4 for Disneyland, Harrison Price and William Lund worked in tandem with the execs at WED to find the best solutions to maximize their plans for “Project X”. This file, (55) pages in all, covers the engagement of E.R.A. and correspondence within and outside of WED Enterprises. The file begins in early 1965 and continues through 1967. Many of the now legendary names of the WED brain-trust are mentioned and/or are directly related to documents in this file. Filled with concepts, mission statements, budgets, invoices, status reports, inter-office memos and personal notes, the file gives a fascinating glimpse behind the scenes at WED Enterprises in this most exciting period of its history. Many key figures are represented here with signatures including, Mel Melton, Donn Tatum, Ken Moline, Joe Potter, William Lund, Larry Tryon, Willie Disbrow and Harrison Price. More names are mentioned and/or directly corresponded through including Walt’s brother, Roy. During the time period covered in this file, Walt ends his involvement with the New York World’s Fair, re-invigorates Disneyland and finally engages an ambitious plan for the future before his tragic death in late 1966. No project so encompasses the totality of Walt’s career than “Project X” and his plans for E.P.C.O.T. Documents such as this remind us that his venture in Central Florida was more than a cheesy tagline about “one man’s dream”, but rather a concrete vision of the future he fully intended to bring to reality. $2,500-$3,500

The Story of Disneyland

As soon as Disneyland had proved itself successful, and the naysayers had to admit it was a hit, conversation began around building a second park east of the Mississippi to attract vacationers from the east coast. When the World’s Fair was announced for 1964 in New York, Walt set up a group within WED Enterprises to contact corporations and seek sponsorship for attractions at the Fair. Participating in the Fair this way provided several opportunities for Walt. First, it provided funding to develop new technologies, like audio-animatronics. Second, the attractions created there could find a home at Disneyland after, expanding the Park. And finally, it was the perfect testing ground of Disney-style entertainment on “sophisticated East Coast audiences.” The Carousel of Progress, it’s a small world, Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln, and Ford’s Magic Skyway were all developed for the Fair by WED, and all were hugely popular. They found a home at Disneyland afterwards, with the Magic Skyway contributing to both the Peoplemover and the Primeval World diorama. 794. NEW YORK WORLD’S FAIR SWIS SKY RIDE CONCEPT ARTWORK BY JOHN WENRICH. (Worlds Fair, 1964) John C. Wenrich was commissioned by the 1964-65 New York World’s Fair corporation to create a series of official renderings of the fair for promotional purposes. He was one of the key artistic figures of the previous New York World’s Fair in 1939 and created many of its key conceptual images. In 1964, his most famous, a view of the Unisphere with the “Rocket Thrower”” sculpture in the foreground (entitled, Plaza of the Astronauts) was one of the key images used before the fair opened to the public. This stunning painting features the iconic Unispere theme symbol with the Swiss Sky Ride as its main feature. The image was used on postcards, calendars and even school textbook covers! Most of the Wenrich promotional art is in the possession of the Queens Museum. Here’s a rare opportunity to acquire historic Fair art by one of the key figures in its visualization.

Good Faith Bidding: Auctioneer reserves the right to refuse to honor any bid or to limit the amount of any bid. All bids must be made in good faith.

Auctioneer is only selling the right, title and interest of any lot that has been consigned to the auctioneer by virtue of any consignment agreements. The auctioneer disclaims any warranty of fitness or merchantability. 33. Disclaimer of Damages; Sole Remedies: Auctioneer disclaims any damages, consequential or otherwise. Auctioneer shall not be responsible for consequential damages, incidental damages, compensatory damages, or any other damages.

A bidder or buyer acknowledges that there is a risk that subsequent to the execution of this Agreement, one or more of them will discover facts or will discover, suffer or incur claims and/or damages relating to the subject matter of this release, which were unknown or unanticipated at the time of the auction, which, if known on that date may have materially affected their respective decisions to give the herein release. Despite this knowledge and understanding, each bidder and buyer agrees that it is assuming the risk of such unknown and unanticipated facts and claims, and in connection herewith, each hereby expressly waives any and all rights under California Civil Code Section 1542, which section has been explained to and is understood by each party and which reads as follows: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.” 37. Arbitration: By placing a bid in the auction, a Bidder agrees to the dispute resolution set forth herein. All disputes shall be arbitrated by the American Arbitration Association in Los Angeles County, California. Costs shall be split equally among the parties. This replaces the right to go to court, including the right to a jury trial. 38.
