50 years of Souvenirs

I just found two great sites that cover the last 50 years of amazing souvenirs from Disneyland. If I had the dough I’d buy all this stuff as often as it came up on eBay.

First is MouseMaps (featured yesterday on TDB: Kid’s World) which has images from most of the Disneyland park maps. Starting with Sam McKim’s excellent 1958 map and continuing through the 2001 version, MouseMaps is like a walk through the parks history. Don’t miss the 1995 error version. It’s a hoot.

I love the Frontierland Game from 1995 (board pictured at right); the Adventureland Game from 1956; and  the Haunted Mansion Secret Panel Chest from 1969. There’s lots more treasure to be found on this website.

One final mention, the it’s a small world game from 1967. The board features a weird layout and the lost Tower of the Four Winds so amazingly designed by Imagineer Rolly Crump. Why don’t they rerelease these games for todays youth and their nostalgic parents?
