The Highly Awaited "Walt Disney's Disneyland" Book is NOW Available For Pre-order !

It's On July 1st that Taschen will finally release the awaited 352 pages "Walt Disney's Disneyland" hardcover book by Author Chris Nichols. Taschen is always doing beautiful books so chances are that this one will be at the height of our expectations.

The not-to-be-missed book is already available in pre-order mode on Amazon HERE and for $50 only which is a very good deal. Here is the book presentation:

"Walt Disney dreamed for decades about opening the ultimate entertainment venue, but it wasn’t until the early 1950s that his handpicked team began to bring his vision to life. Together, artists, architects, and engineers transformed a dusty tract of orange groves into one of the world’s most beloved destinations, one that every child in America begs to visit.

Today, there are Disney resorts from Paris to Shanghai, but the original Disneyland in Anaheim, California, remains one of America’s most popular attractions, drawing over 16 million visitors each year. From the day it opened on July 17, 1955, Disneyland brought history and fairy tales to life, the future into the present, and far-off cultures and even farther galaxies right before our eyes.

This bountiful visual history draws on Disney’s vast archives, private collections, and the golden age of photojournalism to provide unique access to the concept, development, launch, and enjoyment of this sun-drenched oasis of fun and fantasy. Disneyland documents Walt’s earliest inspirations and ideas; the park’s extraordinary feats of design and engineering; its grand opening; each of its immersive “lands” from Main Street, U.S.A. to Tomorrowland; and the evolution of the park in the six decades since it opened. It is a treasure trove of Disney original documentation and expertise, with award-winning writer Chris Nichols drawing on his extensive knowledge of both Disneyland and Southern California history to reveal the fascinating tale of “the happiest place on Earth.”

And to place your order directly on Amazon, HERE is the direct link. Please use this link as the price will be the same for you but, as D&M is an Amazon partner, a small percentage of the sale will go to Disney and more and it's another way to bring your support to D&M!
