While the use of these tickets and ticket books had stopped by 1982, today these types of tickets are very collectible as fond reminders of favorite attractions from the past or of significant years that guests visited the park.

MOVIES

Walt Disney was well aware of the power that film had to reach a worldwide audience. Having created such popular feature films as “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” and “Cinderella”, and knowing that his mascot Mickey Mouse had his start on the big screen as well, it was a natural fit for Walt to want to create films to help promote his park. These theatrical shorts would highlight some of the most enjoyable entertainment found only at Disneyland, and the posters for these films would often showcase the celebrities and performers seen at the park. Surviving examples of these posters are beautiful representations of the early Disneyland that so many movie-goers would be thrilled to see.

BOOKS

WALT DISNEY’S DISNEYLAND

Just as important as film, was the power of print.

MUSIC

WALT DISNEY’S DISNEYLAND

Music has always played a pivotal role for Walt Disney ever since the debut of Mickey Mouse in 1928. Mickey’s first two shorts, “Plane Crazy” and “The Gallopin’ Gaucho”, failed to secure distributors until music and sound was added for the third short, “Steamboat Willie”. Today, the music of Walt Disney’s films and the music found within Disneyland attractions can be as iconic as the stories and rides themselves.

On August 6, 1970, Disneyland was taken over by “Yippies”, an extension of the anti-Vietnam movement known for their political activism. The Yippie invasion of Disneyland consisted of drug use, altercations, chanting, and inappropriate behavior that caused Disneyland to close during operating hours for the first time in the park’s 15-year history. The invasion was billed as the “Yippie Pow Wow” and leaders of the group handed out flyers throughout the area to promote the event. The list of activities that were planned for the day included a “Black Panther Hot Breakfast,” a “liberation of Minnie Mouse from her male oppressors in Fantasyland,” a “Self-Defense Collective at the Frontierland Shooting Gallery”, and a “3pm Barbecue of Porky Pig.” Humorously, Porky Pig is not even a Disney-owned character. As a precaution, Disney had the Orange County Police Department on hand to protect the regular park guests and employees. These officers showed up at the park dressed in full riot gear, and could be seen patrolling Main Street as well as other areas of the park. The event turned what was normally the “happiest place on Earth” into a spectacle that frightened many of the approximately 25,000 regular guests that were at the park that day. The Yippies smoked marijuana throughout the park, climbed the mast of the Captain Hook’s pirate ship, and even hoisted a Viet Cong flag on Tom Sawyer Island. The group paraded down Main Street singing the Mickey Mouse March, and raised flags with marijuana leaf imagery throughout Main Street. Disney responded by closing the park and police officials had to search section by section to remove all of the Yippies. Images of riot police in formation on Main Street and arrests being made inside the park are some of the rare images from that historic day. As a result of the Yippie invasion, Disneyland implemented a new dress code which barred long-haired men as well as anyone who they felt embodied the “hippie” lifestyle. The dress code is no longer in place but the day of the Yippie invasion remains as one of the most unusual days in Disneyland history.

VIEWMASTER

WALT DISNEY’S DISNEYLAND

Sawyer’s, Inc. first introduced the View-Master at the 1939 New York World’s Fair. Their stereoscopic viewers and picture reels were extremely popular and gave people some of their first looks at historic locations such as the Grand Canyon and Carlsbad Caverns. When Disneyland opened in 1955, Sawyer’s View-Master reels gave the general public some of the first and most beautiful images of the park, and certain reels have become extremely rare for their imagery of short-lived attractions such as the “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” exhibit in Tomorrowland or the “Mickey Mouse Club Circus” in Fantasyland. ViewMaster reels continued to be made for the later Disney parks as well as Disney’s tv shows, films, and animated characters until Sawyer’s ceased production in 2009.

Only a small handful of View-Master figures are known to still exist, and finding one from an iconic ending scene of a film such as this one is virtually unheard of.

1964-65 NEW YORK WORLD’S FAIR

The importance of the 1964-65 World’s Fair to the development of Disneyland cannot be overstated. As soon as Disneyland proved itself successful, Walt Disney began discussing plans to build a second park East of the Mississippi. Walt felt the 1964 New York World’s Fair would be a perfect stepping-stone towards his East Coast park, and had a group within WED Enterprises contact and seek sponsorship for attractions at the fair. Disney hoped that with the financial support of large corporations, WED could develop new technologies and new attractions that could be used to expand Disneyland as well as the future East Coast theme park. WED was hired to build four attractions at the World’s Fair which included Ford’s “Magic Skyway”, General Electric’s “Progressland”, the “Hall of Presidents” for the state of Illinois, and “It’s a Small World” for UNICEF and Pepsi. The World’s Fair, and Disney’s partnerships from it, allowed Walt to expand Disneyland as well as make progress towards the East Coast. Since the Fair was so instrumental in the growth of both parks as well as the beginnings of some of the greatest park attractions, souvenirs and artifacts from the World’s Fair are prized as a perfect complement to any Disney collection.

CAST MEMBER

Disneyland has always used theatrical terminology to describe elements of the park; uniforms became “costumes”, Disneyland was the “stage”, and employees were the “cast members”. Walt himself would often refer to what he called the Disneyland “show”, as his park would entertain guests, with cast members there to play their role alongside the attractions and entertainment. The significance of the cast member cannot be overstated, and the Disney Company takes a lot of effort to ensure that they are wellequipped for their specific roles. This includes detailed training manuals, unique wardrobe depending on the area they will be working in, and various badges and pins that show that they are proud to be part of the Disneyland experience.

WALT DISNEY’S DISNEYLAND

THE HISTORY OF THE ORIGINAL 1953 DISNEYLAND PRESENTATION MAP For the full history of this map with photos visit www.vegalleries.com/themap

In 1953, Walt Disney’s dream to build a theme park was met by opposition and difficulty at almost every turn. Unable to get financing from his own studio and even after mortgaging his own home, Walt was still millions of dollars away from being able to build his park. Walt and his brother Roy decided their best bet would be to get financing from one of the major television networks in New York: ABC, NBC, and CBS. In September of 1953, Roy was able to arrange a series of meetings with the major networks, but Walt knew that just using words to describe his park wouldn’t be enough to convince the potential investors of how great Disneyland could truly be. On Saturday, September 26th, 1953, Walt called on artist Herb Ryman to meet him at the Disney Studio. Walt needed Ryman to draw the first large map of Disneyland that Roy could take to New York as his main presentation piece the following week. Over that Saturday and Sunday, Walt described every detail of his proposed park and Ryman drew what Walt described on a large vellum sheet. Vellum, a more delicate and ttranslucent paper, was used in this first step so that the pencil lines could be easily transferred to the final map which would be taken to New York. The line-work was transferred to a more durable sheet using the brownline process. The new sheet was hand-colored, inked, and mounted to a tri-fold presentation board so that it could be taken to New York. This map was the main presentation piece for Roy’s meetings in New York, which were successful in securing the necessary financing from ABC to build Disneyland. The deal with ABC still remains the largest network deal in history. In October of 1953, this map came back to the Disney Studio after returning from New York. The map now had some wear and push-pin holes along the border from its use during the meetings and from its air travel. Walt had this map displayed at the Studio, and used it extensively in 1953 and 1954 in meetings with developers, investors, and designers. Towards the end of 1954, the map had newly embellished and enhanced areas such as an additional train car, a new monument in the hub, and a more stylized Disneyland scroll. By September of 1954, Ryman was called on again to give this same map newly inked lines and enhanced color. This newly enhanced map was used as the first full-image of the park that the general public ever got to see. The map was first shown to the public in an article in “This Week Magazine” on September 19, 1954. The article shared some of the first information about Walt’s park, and stated “for the first time, too, a map of Disneyland is here released to the general public”. Additional images of the map would appear in other magazines and promotional materials throughout 1954 and leading up to the park’s opening in July of 1955. Between September 17th and October 3rd of 1954, the map was presented behind a model of “Sleeping Beauty Castle” at the Los Angeles Fair. This display helped promote the upcoming “Disneyland” television show on ABC which would debut on October 27, 1954. For many, this map display at the fair was the first image of Walt’s park that they ever saw. In March of 1955, Walt Disney gave this original map to his employee and companion, Grenade Curran. Walt had known Grenade’s family, and had developed a friendly relationship with him due to his unique first name. Grenade was present at the Opening Day of Disneyland and even helped drive special guests around the park in original “Autopia” vehicles. This map, one of the most significant artifacts in Disneyland history, can be traced through historical photos and written record, from its creation in 1953 until it was given to Grenade by Walt in 1955. No other map such as this exists, and arguably no other item has had as great of an effect on the creation of Disneyland for the full history of this map with photos visit www.vegalleries.com/themap 66

WALT DISNEY’S DISNEYLAND

MARVIN DAVIS During the early planning of Disneyland, Walt had grown tired of working with unimaginative architects and turned to his Studio artists to help him design his park. One such artist, Marvin Davis, drew the first diagrammatic sketch for Disneyland in August of 1953. Davis would later report that he drew over 100 variations of layout sketches for Disneyland while working with Walt to get the look just right. One of these sketches was used in the bottomright corner of Herb Ryman’s famous Disneyland map that first sold the idea of the park to investors. After Disneyland opened, Davis became an art director for Disney live-action films and TV series. In 1965, Davis returned to WED as a project director on Walt Disney World. He designed the master plan for the Magic Kingdom and contributed to the design of the hotels. Davis was inducted as a Disney Legend in 1994 for his work in turning Walt Disney’s dream into a reality. Many of the early plot plans and brownlines used in the construction of Disneyland were drawn by Davis, and his work is widely collected as a historic aspect of the park’s creation.

This brownline features Davis’s design with a revision date of 6-7-54.

This plot plan is linen-backed for its preservation, and measures approximately 42.5”x61.5”. This item is in good condition with some spots of discoloration and wear from its use during development. $12,000-$15,000 70

This item has an image size of 12”x32.5” within its 20.25”x41.25” frame.

This 12.5”x15.5” graphite drawing on animation paper gives us an idea of what this attraction might have looked like. This item is in very good condition overall with light wear and creasing. $1,000-$2,000

GREAT MOMENTS WITH MR. LINCOLN

The first iteration of the “Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln” attraction was built for the 1964-65 New York World’s Fair.

The attraction had a long life on Main Street, but was met with controversy when it closed in 1973 after Walt Disney’s death, in favor of a biographical film on Walt titled, “The Walt Disney Story”. Public backlash led to a combination of the two attractions in 1975 titled, “The Walt Disney Story featuring Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln”.

In order to help finance the building of the park, some of the earliest Main Street shops were sponsored by businesses which included Bank of America, Hallmark, Upjohn Pharmacy Co., Ruggles China & Gifts, and others.

By having such a wide variety of sponsors and shops, park guests were able to enjoy unique and varied shopping experience at Disneyland that was unlike anywhere else in the world. Today, Main Street shopping is no different, as guests can see animated window displays at the Emporium, costumed performers walking the streets, and confectionaries preparing sweet treats in the windows of the Candy Palace.

The technique involved the silkscreening of paint and frisket to glass, acid etching, sand blasting, chemical glue-chipping the surface, and gilding the piece with silver and gold leaf. This technique was passed down from the earliest artisans hired at Disneyland in 1954 to their apprentices which worked into the 1960s.

ECHANTED TIKI ROOM & TAIHITIAN TERRACE

WALT DISNEY’S DISNEYLAND

Attractions featuring moving animals had been a popular aspect of the park since opening day. However, the early animation seen within attractions such as the “Jungle Cruise” and “Mine Train Thru Nature’s Wonderland” were limited to simple mechanical motions. While those early figures were still quite a technological achievement, a significant step forward was achieved when the “Enchanted Tiki Room” opened in 1963. By pairing pre-recorded dialogue with more realistic movements, the “Enchanted Tiki Room” featured “audio-animatronics” that would sing, interact with the audience, and even appear to breathe. Walt Disney was so impressed with the potential for the show, that he funded the project independently through his company WED Enterprises.

JUNGLE CRUISE

The “Jungle Cruise” attraction has remained largely unchanged over the past 60 years. With boats partially inspired by the feature film, “The African Queen” and designed by Imagineer Harper Goff, guests take a narrated journey through the lush jungles which are inhabited by dangerous and exotic creatures. Originally, Walt Disney had wanted to use real animals throughout the attraction, but mechanical ones were decided upon when the Imagineers realized it would be impossible to get the animals to behave as they needed them to. While today we know the “Jungle Cruise” to be full of joke-cracking tour guides and a certain level of cheesiness, prior to 1962, the attraction operated as a serious and authentic attempt to recreate an animal-viewing experience, much like Disney’s “True Life” nature documentaries that inspired the attraction.

COUNTRY BEAR JAMBOREE & SPLASH MOUNTAIN

WALT DISNEY’S DISNEYLAND

The “Country Bear Jamboree” attraction opened at Walt Disney World in 1971. Its immediate popularity led to the opening of the attraction in Disneyland the following year in the new area titled “Bear Country”, which had formerly been the location of the “Indian Village”. By 1988, excitement and guest traffic in the area had waned, and “Bear Country” was renamed “Critter Country”, with the new “Splash Mountain” attraction set to open the following year. The hope was that “Splash Mountain” would be able to reinvigorate public interest in that section of the park. “Splash Mountain” was a huge success and helped bring new life to the area, despite going over-budget and requiring the re-use of some animatronics from the “America Sings” attraction. Its interesting cast of characters and catchy songs has made “Critter Country” a very whimsical and unique location of the park, with its original souvenirs and artifacts often being very fun and character-driven.

482. Original “Country Bear Jamboree” Attraction Poster. (Disneyland, 1972) An original lithographic poster for the “Country Bear Jamboree” attraction.

The following year, the attraction opened at Disneyland and the posters were redesigned to read “Disneyland & Walt Disney World” so that they could be used for both parks.

While the “Pirates of the Caribbean” attraction didn’t open until March of 1967, beginning in the late 1950s, an idea of the attraction existed as a planned walk-through educational wax museum that would pay homage to early historical pirates.

Disney incorporated similar ride vehicle elements within “Pirates”, and the attraction was set on the path to what we know it as today. “Pirates of the Caribbean” was the last attraction to be overseen by Walt before his passing, and the success of the attraction cannot be overstated. As a marvel of Imagineering ingenuity, the attraction has also led to the creation of some of the most fun and imaginative souvenirs at the park.

MICKEY MOUSE CLUB CIRCUS

Despite being one of the shortest-lived Disneyland attractions of all time, the “Mickey Mouse Club Circus” has one of the richest histories in the entire park. Walt had always dreamt of owning a circus, so when his circus opened at Disneyland in November of 1955, he filled it with some of the rarest and most exciting acts he could find. The MMC Circus included live performances from Disney’s popular Mouseketeers and wild animal tamer George Keller, as well as aerial-acrobats, clowns, exotic animals, and other amazing performers. Despite the high quality of the acts Walt selected, the general public largely felt that while at Disneyland, they should use their time to see the attractions that were unique to Disneyland. The result was the closure of the MMC Circus less than 2 months after it opened. Due to its short life, artifacts and souvenirs from the MMC Circus are some of the rarest that can be found and offer a great look at one of Walt’s more unusual projects.

MATTERHORN BOBSLEDS

WALT DISNEY’S DISNEYLAND

Despite its historic achievement as the first roller coaster in the world to use a tubular steel track, the “Matterhorn Bobsleds” attraction came about from very humble beginnings. During the initial construction for Disneyland, the excess dirt from the construction of “Sleeping Beauty Castle” was moved between Fantasyland and Tomorrowland. That mound of dirt was used as a picnic area before the idea of a toboggan ride began to surface. The attraction officially debuted in 1959, having been designed to allow the “Skyway” to pass directly through it. Over the years, the Matterhorn has seen several refurbishments including one in 1978 which added improved design components throughout, and saw the addition of “Harold”, the iconic abominable snowman. Additional refurbishments have occurred in more recent years, which have helped keep the popular attraction up to date and enjoyable as time and technology have progressed. As one of the four “Mountains of Disneyland”, the fanfavorite attraction has been featured on numerous Disneyland souvenirs since it first opened.

IT’S A SMALL WORLD

When Walt Disney was approached by Pepsi and UNICEF to build an attraction for them to debut at the 1964 New York World’s Fair, he was only given 11 months to complete the attraction before the Fair would open. With Disney artist Mary Blair at the helm of design and color choices, and Marc Davis and Rolly Crump designing scenes, characters, and toys, the water-based dark ride featuring children of the world not only debuted in time, but was incredibly successful. The attraction sold 10 million tickets to adults and children, with proceeds donated to UNICEF. When the attraction opened in Disneyland in 1966, additional scenes were added from the World’s Fair version, and the success of the boat-ride method influenced a change in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” attraction from its original walk-through concept. The iconic music and imagery of the “It’s a Small World” attraction have led to the creation of many early park souvenirs, including records, dolls, toys, and more.

One of the most iconic images of early Disneyland was the TWA Moonliner that dominated the Tomorrowland skyline and signaled the location of the “Rocket to the Moon” attraction.

SUBMARINE VOYAGE

One of the very first rides to require an “E” ticket, the “Submarine Voyage” opened to great success in 1959 as part of Disneyland’s first major expansion. The initial design called for live fish and sea animals to inhabit the lagoon, but it proved unfeasible, and Disney Imagineers went to work creating a realistic submarine mixed with fact and fantasy. The “Submarine Voyage” made use of the space formerly occupied by the problematic “Phantom Boats”, and was a popular park attraction for almost 40 years. The “Submarine Voyage” closed in 1998 and later became “Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage” in 2007. The original incarnation’s four decades of operation have created millions of “Disney Memories” and have made artifacts from the attraction extremely collectible.

A skilled sculptor and modeler, O’Brien helped design the face used on the Mr. Lincoln animatronic figure and aided in other attractions at the park in addition to his work as an animator. O’Brien created many of the models used to design the “Western River Expedition” attraction for Walt Disney World. Although the attraction was never completed, the lucky few who were able to see O’Brien’s work in the miniature model of the attraction described it as one of the greatest achievements to come from Imagineering.

WESTERN RIVER EXPEDITION

WALT DISNEY’S DISNEYLAND

The “Western River Expedition”, designed by legendary Imagineer Marc Davis, was a massive attraction that depicted the exciting American Wild West. The attraction’s structure would be disguised as a Frontierland Mesa, or a large flat-top hill, which guests could climb to take in the amazing views of the park. Within the mesa structure would be a riverboat excursion, a runaway mine train ride, an Indian Village, many audio-animatronics, and much more. The effect of the final product would have been an immersion experience unlike any other, which many theorized would have felt more like another “land” than simply just an attraction. However, the scope of Davis’ work may have in fact been its downfall, as the project proved too costly to implement in time for the opening of Walt Disney World. Aspects of the attraction did however make it into the Disney parks, as attractions such as “Big Thunder Mountain Railroad”, “Splash Mountain”, and “Thunder Mesa” at Disneyland Paris, have been inspired by portions of the “Western River Expedition”.

The new park, the “Magic Kingdom”, officially opened on October 1, 1971, as the first of four theme parks that now make up the “Walt Disney World Resort”. The success of Walt Disney World led to Disneyland’s expansion with California Adventure, as well as a multi-park model with Disney’s other parks around the globe.

EPCOT

Described by Walt as his company’s most exciting and challenging assignment ever attempted, the “Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow”, or EPCOT, was a futuristic city designed to show off imagination and ingenuity. Walt’s original ideas for EPCOT involved a fully-sustainable city that would be home to approximately 20,000 residents who would live, work, play, and contribute within the community. After Walt’s passing, plans for EPCOT changed dramatically, with EPCOT currently comprised of two sections, Future World and World Showcase.
