Souvenir Friday- September 1955 Issue of Coca Cola Refresher

The Coca Cola Refresher was the in house magazine for employees of Coca Cola. In September of 1955, the magazine featured Disneyland and the Coke Corner located on Main Street. Not only did the magazine tout the fantastic corner, it also promoted Disneyland. One of the more interesting photographs in the article is of Eddie Fisher, Debbie Reynolds and Walt Disney on opening day. Over at Daveland was a post featuring s similar photograph of the same trio. Eddie Fisher was sponsored by Coke on the radio at the time with his program Coke Time. I have scanned just the article that features Disneyland.

I love old in-house magazines of Disneyland sponsors like this.

"160 acres of Fantasy". Yeah right, and almost half of those acres were parking lot. Some fantasy.
