Things From the Gate- Educational Brochure 1956
Disneyland pretty quickly found out that many groups wanted to visit Disneyland. In order to make the park more attractive to school groups, Disneyland created a program and brochure to entice teachers to visit the park with their classes. I love some of the benefits the group could receive (a free ride on the Mark Twain or one of the Disneyland Trains, free parking, lectures by the sponsors especially in Tomorrowland) as well as the educational aspects of each land (history in Frontierland, natural history in Adventureland, civics and government in Main Street, literature in Fantasyland.) Enjoy the brochure and check out the spot illustrations.
