    Disneyland Research!

    As I have said a few times before, I'm doing a speech on how Disneyland came to be. Today, my question is what books have the best info on the history of disneyland?

    Disneyland: Inside Story by Randy Bright has excellent information. I did a powerpoint, so send me a message through email if you need any help.

    I have an Imagineering book of Disney (made around 2003 and 2004) and it explains how they made Indiana Jones! It has a lot of interesting Disney history.

    Walt Disney - by Bob Thomas, talks a lot on how Walt became the person he is and how he built the park he did off of a drawing. Talks a ton about the park...

    Not sure if you are able to but contact press relations and see if you can visit the Disney Archive in Glendale... books are great but "hands on" is much better.

    See if you can find the old Disneyland shows that were shown on ABC in 1954 while they were building the park and Walt was introducing the world to his creation. Those will have a lot about it and its history.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    This book and the new Neal Gabler book. Walt Disney and the Triumph of American Imagination. Both are good. I also found the Roy Disney biography by Bob Thomas to have more of the business end of the creation of DL.

    I believe that one or two of these episodes was in the first issued Disney Treasures.
