Souvenir Friday- Dsineyland News Movie Premier Edition

A rare souvenir from the movie premier of Disneyland USA held at the Fox Anaheim theater. The short film showcased Disneyland of 1956 and can be seen on the Walt Disney Treasures series of DVDs. The premiere featured lots of acts and stars from Disney including Roy Williams, Cliff Edwards and birthday girl Annette Funicello. The program is the same size as the regularly published Disneyland News but only four pages in length. Due to the size of my scanner, the images are digital pictures and the articles are not readable. Please let me know if you want to read any of the articles.

I'll bet Anaheim hadn't seen too many "Gala Premiers" at that point... and probably still hasn't!

Wow, what a great piece! Never even knew this existed. Maybe a few close up scans, huh? Thank you.

Ah, so that's where the mysterious three-train Casey Jr. image came from.

In the best of all possible worlds, some angel would scan and post the entire run for those poor deprived unfortunates among us.
And then I want a pony.
Oh, well.
