    Disneyland Guide Handout from 1969: Complete Scanned Booklet

    Picked this up at a local postcard/paper show a few months back and decided would be fun to share the scanned booklet It looks like something that would have been handed out at the main gates, and is rather more substantial than the modern brochure guides given. Let's have a look, shall we?

































    Thanks for looking and hope this was enjoyed!

    The Columbia was an "E"? What was Walt smoking?

    I used to have this, as well as ticket books and brochures from every year since 1964. I wish I'd kept them.

    If you think about it the Columbia and Rivers of America were extremely expensive to build.

    Thanks for sharing RegionsBeyond, very interesting how things have changed. I thought it was interesting that it referred to CMs as "employees." It makes me wonder at what point did Cast Member become the standard identifier for Disney employees?

    I guess more than he was letting on.
    Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.

    Dinner at the Blue Bayou, $1 to $3.50?!?!

    Well apparently that's $21 in today's money, but still it sounds crazy.

    This was my first ever guide. I remember vividly spending hours upon hours going through it after our first trip when I was 12 in an attempt to transport myself back to that magical place. Thanks Regions. Your continued generosity to this site is a marvel indeed.

    Great post ~ I really enjoy going over the old park guides!
    I saw the "Oaks Tavern" mentioned, does anybody know anything about this place? I've never heard of it before.

    The Oaks Tavern was what is now called The Stagedoor Cafe.'
