Walt Disney’s Guide to Disneyland (1963)

This 1963 edition of the Disneyland “souvenir guide book” features a twenty-seven-page, color-photo tour through the five lands of the Magic Kingdom.

The cover photo and illustrations are consistent with the previous year’s guide, although the yellow color scheme has been changed back to red, similar to the 1961 version.

Other than the addition of new park offerings, which include the Enchanted Tiki Room in Adventureland, the text and photos throughout remain largely unchanged. One update to the “Coming Attractions” section brings the first mention of the formal Pirates of the Caribbean attraction to a Disneyland guidebook (it was previously mentioned as a walk-through attraction titled the Rogue’s Gallery). The Haunted Mansion and Old New Orleans Square remain.
