My Disneyland Resort Guide Maps Collection & Blog

To all that come to my Map Blog, Welcome!

A complete source for everything about Disneyland Maps and Disney California Adventure Maps

Disneyland Maps?  You mean those paper maps you grab at the gate, fold up, stick in your pocket and end up throwing away at the end of the day.  No, not me!  I love them and collect them!  I know there are probably cooler Disney items to collect.  Pins?  Dolls?  Stuffed Animals?  Mickey Ears?  No, I collect the ultimate free souvenir that you can always go back to.  As Walt wanted it, Disneyland will always change and grow, so to have these mementos and see what came before is awesome.  I started collecting about 10 years ago and continue to this day, I’m constantly checking to see if the parks release a new map and I’m always looking for other collectors who hopefully have the same obsession that are willing to trade and share their collection.

I want to share my collection with everyone in hopes this becomes a community where everyone can connect, trade or just admire the maps of the past.

As you can imagine, it’s hard to collect all the maps especially when the parks produced weekly / bi-weekly maps.  Perhaps you can help with my collection.  Do you have extras? Do you have a box of them you no longer want?  Do you want to trade?  Please see my list of maps I’m missing and let’s talk (email me at DLRMapCollector@yahoo.com).

List of Maps I’m Missing

I’ve had several requests to add a section for the popular “Buena Vista Bugle” newspapers available at Disney California Adventure.  To view the complete list, check out the new Bugle page

New DCA Maps!!!

2018-01-26 Covers

In a strange turn of events, DCA actually updated the cover of their maps to reflect the Lunar New Year Celebration.  The past several years, the practice had become to just use a standard map for the season and then just update the paper entertainment schedules to reflect the special events.  I like this way better as it gives us a better variety of maps to collect.  It’s safe to assume this map will be around until February 18th, so expect a new DCA map on the 19th.  The Disneyland map stayed the same.

Codes are DL-010816-ENG and DCA-012618-ENG

Welcome 2018!!!

2018-01-08-covers

Happy New Year!  2018 is here and along with it comes some new maps.  All I have to say I was shocked when I saw them.  No overused attraction or another version of Mickey and his Friends.  This time they went with two small kids in ears.  Although they maybe too much on the cutesy cheesy side, I do have to say I like them because they’re finally something different.  Disneyland went with a girl in Minnie ears holding a Mickey Pretzel over her face in front of the Castle while DCA went with a boy in Mickey ears being carried in front of Mickey’s Fun Wheel.  Also, DCA’s map inside shows the updated route around the Paradise Pier remodel and doesn’t list Mickey’s Fun Wheel or California Screamin’ in the ride detail.

Codes are DLP-010816-ENG and DCA-010816-ENG

The Holidays are Here!!!

The Holiday Time maps are here.  Disneyland went with the classic Small World Front but DCA finally did something new with the Cars Land Christmas Tree.  These maps will be out until early January. Codes are: DLP-110117-ENG and DCA-110117-ENG.

November Maps

Hurry to the parks as the November Maps are out and will only be around until the HolidayTime starts up on Friday, November 10th.  I’m happy to see some brand new covers that have never been used.  Disneyland went with the Mark Twain which I don’t think has been on a cover since the 60s/70s and DCA went with a new nighttime shot of Guardians of the Galaxy.

Codes are DLP-110117-END & DCA-110117-ENG

Halloween Time is Here!!!

The Halloween Festivities kicked off today so that means we get some fun festive maps.  Disneyland sadly went with the same tired cover they’ve used for the past several years but DCA switched it up with a Vampire Mater being followed by little bat Maters which I love.

Summer of Heroes is Gone!

The summer of Heroes promotion ended yesterday!  So, because of this, we have a new DCA map for the remainder of this week before the HalloweenTime maps come out on Friday.  Same cover, just without the details of Summer of Heroes inside.  Disneyland maps stayed the same.

Codes are: DLP-082117-ENG and DCA-091117-ENG
