As a long-time Walt Disney World book collector, I recently started collecting Disneyland coffee table books (so, not the smaller souvenir books) after falling in love with Disneyland after visiting for the first time last August.
You can read my full reviews and see photos of the books here: Disneyland Books - Disney Tourist Blog
Here's my list (in order of preference) -
1. Disneyland Nickel Tour
2. The Art of Disneyland
3. Disneyland: Inside Story
4. Disneyland: Then, Now, and Forever
5. Disneyland, Memories of a Lifetime
6. Disneyland: Dreams, Traditions and Transitions
7. The Magic of Disneyland and Walt Disney World
8. Disneyland: The First Thirty Years
9. Disneyland: Celebrating 45 Magical Years
10. Disneyland: The First Quarter Century
11. Disneyland: The First Thrity-Five Years
I know I'm missing at least the current book, Disneyland Through the Decades (is it any good?), but what else, if anything, am I missing? I'm not really interested in the yearly souvenir books nor am I interested in books produced by third parties (yes, I realize Nickel Tour is one such book, but it's an exception). Should I also make an exception for the Disneyland Hotel book?
