My Disneyland Resort Guide Maps Collection & Blog

To all that come to my Map Blog, Welcome!

A complete source for everything about Disneyland & 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 20 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 that were once available at Disney California Adventure.  To view the complete list, check out the Buena Vista Bugles page

HalloweenTime 2022

HalloweenTime 2022 maps have arrived. Disneyland went with a Haunted Mansion Holiday cover which seems like a slightly different angle of a previously used map cover. DCA went with “A Celebration of COCO” cover featuring Dante the dog. These maps should stick around until October 31st when the HalloweenTime event ends. Two puzzling findings about the inside of the maps were they still haven’t added Finding Nemo Subs back as an attraction on the Disneyland map and they still never added the World of Color logo over the Pixar Pier Lagoon look they used to have when the show was active. Happy Collecting!

Codes are DLP-090222 ENG & DCA-090222-ENG

Inside Scans: Disneyland and DCA

Summer Maps are Here!!!

We got a new Disneyland map on Saturday featuring a new Fantasmic cover. I don’t see any changes on the inside other than they changed the shaded gray ground color a little in Toon Town. The link on the official website show these as 6/18 to 9/1 so I suspect these will last the whole summer. Happy Collecting!

Codes are DLP-061822 ENG & DCA-052822-ENG

New May Maps – Same Cover – Different Code

We received new maps for each park on May 28th. They are the same Electrical Parade and World of Color covers but with new 052822 codes. The main change I can see are expanded details on the inside flap for the Genie and Genie+ services. For Disneyland, there are also new food offerings on the inside flap. For DCA, they also changed the nametag name from Kasie to Mike and the sponsorship of Luigi’s Rollickin’ Roadsters from Alamo to Enterprise.

I noticed in the web url they used on the official website, they coded this map as 5/28-6/17. So hopefully, we’ll see some new maps on June 18th. Happy Collecting!

New Disneyland Map (Same Cover)

Hello, thanks to user MouseGuide, we have word that Disneyland updated their map but kept the same cover. We don’t have a full list of all the changes but we do know it now has a DLP-052822-ENG code and they updated at least the food suggestions inside (picture attached). I was hoping for a 30th Anniversary Fantasmic cover, oh well. No change at DCA yet. And for those who collect the foreign language guide maps, they have switched to a castle cover instead of the Mickey ones that were out for awhile. I’ll update the listings once I have scans available. Happy Collecting!

New April Maps

I don’t have the official scans yet but wanted to share that both parks updated their maps on Friday, 4/22. Disneyland with a 50th Anniversary of the Main Street Electrical Parade Cover and Toon Town shaded grey inside and DCA with the return of World of Color.

Codes are DLP 042222-ENG (missing a dash) and DCA-030422-ENG (old date which is odd). Inside Scans coming soon.

Also, curious to see if the Disneyland maps will update this Friday when Hyperspace Mountain comes back.

Updated Estimated Timeline:

April 29th – Disneyland – Hyperspace Mountain coming back

May 28th – Disneyland – possible Fantasmic on Disneyland cover

Just Kidding, Disneyland did update…slightly

So, it seems Disneyland did update their maps on March 4th. Same Chewbacca cover, same code, but slight changes on the inside. The changes I can spot are new name on the nametag (it’s now Rick, was Joelle before), different Magic Key ad on the back and the mobile area features two new food items. I still wonder if they’re going to update again tomorrow after Toon Town closes for a year long refurb. Time with tell.

Codes are: DLP-020122-ENG & DCA 030422-ENG

Inside Scans: Disneyland and DCA

Updated Estimated Schedule:

March 4th – Disneyland – New Chewbacca with slight changes on the inside.

March 4th – April 26th – DCA – Food & Wine Festival on Disney California Adventure cover

March 9th – Disneyland – possible update to reflect ToonTown being closed for construction?

April 22nd – Disneyland – possible 50th Anniversary Main Street Electrical Parade cover

April 27th – DCA – possible World of Color on Disney California Adventure cover

April 29th – Disneyland – Hyperspace Mountain coming back

May 28th – Disneyland – possible Fantasmic on Disneyland cover

Food & Wine Festival 2022

We received a new DCA map featuring the Food & Wine Festival. The Disneyland map stayed the same for the time being. I’m guessing a new Disneyland map will come March 9th after ToonTown closes on March 8th. I’m still waiting on the official scans so I do not have the inside scans.

Codes are DLP-020122-ENG & DCA 030422-ENG

Inside Scans: Disneyland and DCA

Updated Estimated Schedule:

March 4th – April 26th – DCA – Food & Wine Festival on Disney California Adventure cover

March 9th – Disneyland – possible update to reflect ToonTown being closed for construction

April 22nd – Disneyland – possible 50th Anniversary Main Street Electrical Parade cover

April 27th – DCA – possible World of Color on Disney California Adventure cover

May 28th – Disneyland – possible Fantasmic on Disneyland cover

February 14th Map Official Update and Timeline Update

We now have confirmation that DCA went back to the Avengers Campus cover from the beginning of 2021 with a code of DCA-020122-ENG which matches up to the current Disneyland code even though it doesn’t match up to the date when the map came out – 021422. I believe it’s safe to assume these two guide maps will be out until the Food & Wine Festival starts March 4th. With all the promotion of the trams returning today even though it’s technically an amenity at the resort, I’m surprised we don’t have the trams on the covers (LOL). Also, we got official return dates for the nighttime entertainment at DL and DCA today so I updated the estimated map release schedule below. Happy Collecting.

Codes are DLP-020122-ENG & DCA 020122-ENG

Inside Scans: Disneyland and DCA

Updated Estimated Schedule:

February 14th – March 3rd – Avengers Campus on Disney California Adventure cover – Code 020122

March 4th – April 26th – Food & Wine Festival on Disney California Adventure cover

March 9th – Updated Disneyland map to reflect ToonTown being closed for construction

April 22nd – Possible 50th Anniversary Main Street Electrical Parade on Disneyland cover

May 28th – Possible Fantasmic on Disneyland cover

February Update

We don’t have full confirmation but thanks to map collector “mouseguide” for letting us know that DCA went back to the Avengers Campus cover from the beginning of 2021 with a code of DCA-020122-ENG which matches up to the current Disneyland code. I don’t believe Disneyland had any reason to change their map so it’s safe to assume these two guide maps will be out until the Food & Wine Festival starts March 4th. I will have scans and will update the lists as soon as I get a hold of the maps. With all the promotion of the trams returning even though it’s technically an amenity at the resort, I’m surprised we don’t have the trams on the covers. LOL. Happy Collecting.

Updated Estimated Schedule:

February 14th – March 3rd – Chewbacca and Avengers Campus – Code 020122

March 4th – April 26th – Food & Wine Festival on DCA and possibly a new cover on DL

April 27th – New Cover on DCA and possibly a new cover on DL

Keep in mind, the resort announced that Main Street Electrical Parade, Fantasmic and World of Color are all supposed to return soon but they have not provided dates. We could also see new maps at anytime featuring those returning shows.

Chewbacca – Same Cover/Updated Inside

Disneyland released a new map yesterday that features the same Chewbacca cover but with some updates on the inside that include the rename of “It’s a Small World Holiday” back to normal and a special add for the Magic Key Celebrations in February. DCA still the same map featuring Lunar New Year.

Codes are DLP-020122-ENG & DCA-012122-ENG

Inside Scans: Disneyland and DCA

Updated Estimated Schedule:

February 1st – February 13th – Updated Chewbacca DL Map and Lunar New Years DCA Map

February 14th – March 3rd – Bridge maps between Lunar New Year and Food & Wine Festival

March 4th – April 26th – Food & Wine Festival on DCA and possibly a new cover on DL

April 27th – New Cover on DCA and possibly a new cover on DL

Keep in mind, the resort announced that Main Street Electrical Parade, Fantasmic, World of Color and Mickey’s Mix Magic are all supposed to return soon but they have not provided dates. We could also see new maps at anytime featuring those returning shows.
