Description


This deluxe Disney atlas is bursting with gorgeous park maps from around the work and across the six decades!
It all started with a map. . . . Maps of the Disney Parks are more than just atlases used by guests to find their way to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. They are snapshots of a place and time, relics treasured by collectors, and gorgeous pieces of artwork. In fact, it was a map (imagined by Walt Disney and drawn by Herbert Ryman) that was used to sell the idea of Disneyland to investors. Unfold this book of beautiful maps from when the very first Disney Park opened in 1955 right up to today. Discover details on how and why the domestic and international parks have changed over time, and enjoy sixty years worth of skillful creativity.

PRAISE FOR MAPS OF THE DISNEY PARKS"I've been intrigued by the process of mapping Disneyland and the other parks since I first pored over the fold-out map in the August 1963 issue of The National Geographic. Years later I had the privilege of meeting Herb Ryman who mapped 'The Happiest Place on Earth' for Walt Disney before it was even built (!) and Sam McKim who created many of our treasured Disney maps. To look at a map of a Disney park is to relive visits past and dream of visits yet to be. . . This book promises to satisfy those twin emotions!"—<strong>Brian Sibley</strong>, writer, broadcaster, and Disney scholar
