  1. Thanks, Rick! I hope you have future articles on post card histories of
    the Haunted Mansion,
    the Jungle Cruise,
    and a long one on Disneyland’s Tomorrowland too.
    Good article!

    • I’d love to see Tomorrowland ones. When I was a kid I used to always look at them when I went to the store.

  2. Yes, Disneyland postcards are fantastic. I send one to my 3 year old niece every month so she’ll want to come visit us. It works like a charm.

  3. I think I have about half of these post cards…
