(Disneyland, 1955) A 9-page memo circulated by Bill Cottrell, then president of WED Imagineering, updating the official nomenclature for all the lands and attractions of Disneyland and dated May 25, 1955. The memo provides a summary of every land and attraction in the park, imparting the proper terminology to describe each and furnishing information such as the number of ride vehicles and their names, as well as the back story behind every aspect of the park (e.g. Tomorrowland is set in 1986, the year Haley's comet was due to return). This rare internal document offers fascinating insights into the Imagineers' original intent behind every element of the park on the cusp of the grand opening. Measuring 11"x8.5", the stapled memo is in very good condition with some faint darkening from age, spot soiling, surface impressions, corner wear, and handling.
