Nice pictorial book, published by the Walt Disney Company
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 16 years ago
This is a very nice hardcover book that you could purchase at Disneyland. It was only sold in the Disneyland Park and not in any stores. Disneyland has been producing a hardcover book every year for some time, and most years there are only slight changes made from the previous years. But when a big Anniversary year comes like this years 50th, they change the title and cover to reflect the special occassion. New attractions and attractions that are under construction are usually shoe-horned into the last few pages each year. There are a few pages with some brief articles, but this is mostly about the pictures - which do have captions. The book is made up of very high quality full page and half page color photos of attractions, buildings, and people having fun in the Park. The binding and hardcover are the best quality, as are the glossy thick pages. I have the 25th year, the 35th year, and a few others to make comparisons of the changes each year, and it intersting to see the progression of the book over time. This usually sells for about $25 new in the Park. Old anniversary books sell for anywhere from $10 to $100, depending on where you buy them.
A must have Life-Long keepsake book to remember your visit
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 19 years ago
A fabulously interesting, detailed book with hundreds of beautiful pictures of all aspects of Disneyland. Includes the Disneyland Park, as it is in 2000, as well as it's history, it's seasons, and even some behind the scenes. Includes fabulously interesting articles to give more insights, details, background and often some history to go along with the beautiful photos. This book is a treasure to both kids and parents. Something the family will keep and look back at many many times. It brings back the memories, the feelings, the fun of our past trips to Disneyland. As the park changes we can always accurately remember how it was during our recent visits as well as show the kids how it all started as just a dream of Walt's and how it got to be such an amazing place. This book is a must have, even if you buy the newer 2002 edition called Disneyland Resort - Magical Memories of a Lifetime. The 2000 edition (the full title is Disneyland - Memories of a Lifetime) has the history and behind the scenes. The 2002 edition has the new California Adventure theme park as well as the Resort Hotels, but does NOT include the fascinating history and behind the scenes. So, if you can find them, buy them both. You'll be truly happy you did.
