    Tokyo Disney Pre-Opening Map from 1980

    Hello folks,

    I'm hoping one or some of the knowledgeable people here can assist me in identifying and providing more information on this map:




    It measures 28" x 42.75" on heavyweight paper. On the lower left it says: "In 1983, discover a new world of fantasy and adventure, yesterday and tomorrow. This special-edition map salutes the beginnings of a Magic Kingdom to be...Tokyo Disneyland. December 3, 1980."

    Any assistance would be very much appreciated, can't find a thing about it online.

    I like it. No other input to provide.

    So am I to assume nobody has seen this before?

    ^ I sure haven't. Is that Glacier Bay way in the back behind Fantasyland? And what's that 2nd river/boat area in Westernland?

    Hard to tell unless you post a bigger picture to look at or attach a link to a bigger pic (Plus we all want a copy to snoop at closer)

    I have a lot of ephemera from the Tokyo Disney Resort, but have never seen this particular map before. It's quite similar to the actual map released at park opening. Want to sell it?

    Thanks for the replies so far folks, I'll work on getting a bigger picture(s) posted this weekend.

    Fukai, don't know that I'm looking to sell it, just looking to learn more at this point. However, if you offered some absurd price for it, I could be persuaded

    Alright, so here are some bigger pictures. As you can see, the poster is a Printers Proof, and as such, I'm a bit reluctant to say where I got it. The fact that I can't find any info on it is leading me to believe that it may never have been released. Any more help would be much appreciated, enjoy the images!
