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

HolidayTime 2018 is Here!

2018-11-09 Covers

Wow, just like that, another year of Disneyland Map Collecting has come and is almost gone.  The HolidayTime Maps came out yesterday and they look great.  Something a little different for a change.  Always love to see the castle covered in snow and the vintage Mickey & Minnie is a breath of fresh air for the DCA cover.

Happy Holidays and Happy Collecting!

November Gap Maps

2018-11-04 Covers

The November Gap maps are out and the parks continue to surprise me with some the best covers for these limited time maps.  I wish they would use this much variety for their normal maps that are out for months.  These maps will only be available for 8 Days (November 1st through November 8th) to bridge the time between the Halloween Festivities (ended October 31st) and the Holiday Time Festivities which begins November 9th.

Halloween Time is Back!

Covers - 2018-09-07

I’m loving the new Halloween Time maps.  It’s actually something different than the normal Haunted Mansion Holiday cover.  For DCA, although they used Dracula Mater last year, at least it’s an actual picture of him in CarsLand instead of a cartoon picture.

I thought we would get new maps for the three days between Pixar Fest ended and HalloweenTime began but it looks like the resort just used the Pixar Fest maps throughout those three days.

As for the insides, that blank spot from where ‘a bugs land’ once stood really stands out on the map and such a random shotout to the Snow White ride on the inside cover of the Disneyland map.  Happy Collecting!

New Maps Coming Soon?

Well, Pixar Fest will be coming to end on Monday (09/03) so we can obviously expect new maps after that on Tuesday (09/04) but HalloweenTime starts on Friday (09/07).  So, I would expect a three day map that will be available Tuesday (09/04) through Thursday (09/06).  Fingers crossed for some cool covers!

Pixar Fest Summer Maps

2017-06-23 Covers

So, here is the official update for the Pixar Fest Summer Maps.  I do enjoy the choices for the covers but my only gripe is the obnoxious registered symbol right in the middle of the Pixar Pier loop circle.  Doesn’t Disney own the name Pixar? Does it really need that symbol right in the middle of the image?  Don’t see many changes on the inside of the Disneyland map.  The DCA map now reflects the division of Paradise Pier into Pixar Pier and Paradise Gardens Park.  I’m assuming the next change will be toward the end of  the Summer when they’re supposed to shut down “A Bugs Land” to be changed into some sort of Marvel Land.
