(Disneyland, 1953) This is the original presentation map of Disneyland that was created by Walt Disney and Herb Ryman in September of 1953. This map was the main presentation piece for Roy Disney's meetings with potential investors in New York, which succeeded in getting Disney the financing from ABC that was necessary to build Disneyland. This same map returned from New York and was displayed at the Disney Studio where it was used by Walt in numerous development meetings throughout the remainder of 1953 and into 1954. Later in 1954, this map received newly inked outlines and additional color, and was used as the first publicly released full-image of Disneyland. The significance of this map in the history of Disneyland cannot be overstated. This remarkable artifact measures 40"x68.5" on its presentation board backing and comes custom-framed for a beautiful presentation. This map is in very good condition with some wear throughout from its extensive use in some of the most important meetings in Disneyland history.
