Disneyland Main-Gate Map (1965)

This 1965 Disneyland main-gate map commemorates the park’s “Tencennial Celebration,” marking a full decade of themed entertainment, the likes of which the world had never seen.

The copyright information for Walt Disney Productions can be found on the front panel, along with the official “Disneyland ’65 Tencennial Celebration” logo. The five themed cartoon figures, representing the lands of the park, again front the brochure, although enlarged and in different poses. The “Welcome to Disneyland” headline is retained, but in a new blue-gold color-scheme which persists throughout the publication, as well as five translated versions of the title in Spanish, German, French, Italian, and Japanese. The introductory text has been re-themed to the park’s anniversary milestone.

All of us in Walt Disney’s Magic Kingdom hope that your visit today will be a happy and memorable one. We are particularly pleased to have you with us during our Tencennial Celebration—commemorating a Decade of Disneyland.

 

Since it opened on July 17, 1955, people from all fifty states and more than one hundred nations have come to be transported to the world of fun and fantasy in Disneyland. …We are glad that you are among them.

 

Your enjoyment of this and future visits is the first consideration of all Disneylanders.

 

As you explore Disneyland, we suggest that you keep this folder. As you explore Disneyland keep it handy for reference. The information it contains has been prepared to help make your visit as pleasant an experience as possible.
