Souvenir Friday on a Saturday-The Disneyland Magazine Summer July 1960

One of my main collecting interests currently is trying to complete a set of the Disneylander magazines. The magazines were a precursor to the current Disneyland Line. The Disneylander was published by the Disneyland Recreation Club for employees of Disneyland as well as the employees of the various lessees in the park. The magazine was published monthly and filled with great information about employees and stores in the park. This issue is the fifth anniversary issue published in July of 1960. Interior articles focus on each division of Disneyland including construction headed by Admiral Joe Fowler, Publicity, Operations, Merchandise and more.

Any idea how many issues of The Disneylander there were? I have - - - one issue! Those things are hotly bid upon on ebay on the rare occasions that they show up.

Good luck getting the whole set, that would be quite an accomplishment!

When did The Disneylander begin? With the opening of the park, or sometime later?

The Disneylander was started in January of 1956 as this issue is Volume 4 Number 7. I believe it stopped publishing in 1963, so that is 7 years of monthly isues or about 100 issues.
