Maps of the Disney Parks: Charting 60 Years from California to Shanghai

Maps of the Disney theme parks are more than just atlases used by guests to find their way to the nearest restroom. They’re snapshots of a place and time, relics treasured by collectors, and gorgeous pieces of artwork. After all, it was a map – imagined by Walt Disney and drawn by Herbert Ryman – that was used to sell the idea of Disneyland to investors.

Maps of the Disney Parks: Charting 60 Years from California to Shanghai by Vanessa Hunt, Susan Neary and Kevin Neary is bursting with beautiful maps dating back to Disneyland’s opening day in 1955, right up to the recent opening of Shanghai Disneyland. It features dozens of gorgeous full-page spreads, as well as some fold-out reprints of vintage maps!

What a cool way to discover details on how and why the domestic and international parks have changed over time, and enjoy six decades worth of skillful creativity.
