Keeping up with the Christmas at Disneyland images, here is one of the Christmas from Many Lands parade unit, this is Germany with the group pulling a nicely decorated Tannenbaum while wearing Lederhosen. I will be showing a whole series of this parade all from the same perspective. I believe the photographer was standing in the old Dixieland bandstand that was right on the Rivers of America. I also want to point out the old Slue Foot Sue sign out front on the Golden Horseshoe Revue building, featuring Slue Foot Sue from the animated cartoon.

SOP Saturday- Your Role in the Disneyland Show 1957
Rather than a specific attraction SOP, I have decided to showcase one of the first new employee orientation guides to the new fangled park of Disneyland. The title Your Role in the Disneyland Show should sound familar as Disneyland has used it for a number of orientation training guides throughout the years. This one is special as it is dated 1955 and sets down the culture of working at Disneyland that was to remain consistent for a long time...maybe even up to today. Another interesting note about this is it is copyright Disneyland Inc in 1955 but states information about 1957 and the characters that are used are under Walt Disney Productions copyright and used with permission. You can see that Disneyland was set up as a completely different company in the beginning, just in case it failed. So sit back, take some notes if you want, and pay attention on how to become a Disneylander in 1957.
