Walt Disney’s Disneyland Book

Aug 24, 2018

Category: Entertainment

Walt Disney and his talented team of Imagineers transformed a sooty tract of orange groves into the happiest place on Earth, taking inspiration from Cinderella’s fairy godmother. Award-winning writer Chris Nichols has put together a visual history of that magical place in Anaheim, California, allowing you to drive down memory lane with Mickey.

Filled with 352 pages of the world’s megalopolis of magic, this book draws from historical collections, private archives, and the golden age of photojournalism to give us an insider’s look at a paradise dedicated to youthful souls. This book documents a plethora of Disney magic, including Walt’s initial ideas, the park’s inspirational and timeless design, and the grand opening on July 17, 1955. It also delves into each of the immersive lands, as well as the evolution of the park throughout the six decades of its existence. When reality has you bursting at the seams, you can always take a restorative trip to Disneyland or open up this book until you find the time to make it there.
