(Disneyland, 1954) An extremely rare prospectus packet for Disneyland, dated September 3, 1954. The prospectus, titled "The Disneyland Story", was used to educate potential investors as to what they might expect at the park when it opened the following year. The document includes overviews of the lands in the park as well as early descriptions of some of the planned attractions of the park, including some that would never get made. The packet comes in a binder marked "Disneyland" in the lower-right corner. The binder contains (26) 8"x 10" black and white photos of concept art, maps, and various scenes which help to convey the descriptions found in the document. This prospectus packet provides an incredibly rare and seldom seen glimpse into Walt Disney's vision for his park almost a year before it opened. The 14-page document is in good condition with a few pages loose from the staple in the top-left corner. The last page has a torn portion along the left-edge. The binder is in fair condition with some separation along the spine, cover-wear, and a torn bottom-right corner. The photos are in very good condition with minor wear. Most of the photos have Disney's numbering and date codes stamped on the reverse.
