Join Mickey and pals on a trip….A Visit to Disneyland
This is the Authorized Edition, in case you got tricked into purchasing the Unauthorized Version (though I recommend the Unofficial Guides to the Parks.)
If Saving Mr. Banks left you with an itch to recollect your first family trip, or you want to see the lands not featured in the movie, or you just got a hankering for nostalgia and bad limericks, I’ve got the book for you.
I picked up this little guidebook at our Friends of the Library sale. Because I love you.
The text wasn’t in great shape, so I apologize for the skewed images and tape marks. They don’t impede appreciation for those fine rhymes, though.
Can we pause your reading pleasure to talk about this next page? Did this really happen every day as a show? Was this a local tribe member or just an actor?
I feel embarrassed just typing the AltText for that last picture. But I like to sing the next page to the tune of “Home on the Range.”
Note that the castle in Cali’s Disneyland is Sleeping Beauty’s Castle, while the FL and TDL ones are Cinderella’s.
Casey Jr. – now that’s a story that needs to be remade into a live-action movie. I can see Ms. Mabel’s getting tired with this, as she couldn’t think of a synonym for monkey. The next page is the best, though. Rocketships AND mermaids. The author even breaks meter.
What’s your favorite place the Parks? Do you remember any of these features or were you surprised by what has changed?
