Disney-MGM Studios – A Pictorial Souvenir – 1989

This is a souvenir book that was published in 1989, but was probably created in late 1988, as it has plenty of concept art, and only a few photos of specific attraction scenes that were completed. But, that's not all bad, as the concept art is awesome. It's a far cry from what Hollywood Studios... Continue Reading →

Disney Will Stop Printing Disney Dollars This Week

When I was a kid I loved Disney Dollars. For those unfamiliar, they’re Disney’s paper notes that look like real money and feature cartoon characters such as Mickey Mouse and Dumbo on the front. They’re only good at Disney Parks and stores, making them essentially like gift certificates. But Disney will stop printing Disney Dollars... Continue Reading →

Disneyland and California Adventure Guidemaps – February 2016

Well, these aren't that old. But they are from our trip to Disneyland last month. I'm not thrilled with the cover of either guidemap, but they're still Disney guidemaps, so I love them. 🙂 You can download the full PDF of the Disneyland guidemap here, and the California Adventure guidemap can be downloaded here. .
