Excerpt from the back cover of the book
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 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 (above right) – that was used to sell the idea of Disneyland to investors.
Unfold this book bursting with 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 six decades worth of skillful creativity.
