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.

Printable / Downloadable Ultimate Checklist

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

The Start of the Disney100 Celebration

The Disney100 Celebration kicked off today with the debut of the Wonderous Firework show at Disneyland and World of Color One at DCA but more importantly the debut of Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway in Toontown. The Disneyland map is featuring the Castle adorned with the Disney100 decorations and now features part of Toontown on the map. One gripe, they’re showing it with the castle concept art but the actual fairies and banner hanging on the castle today do not feature the green, pink and purple colors. Everything is the platinum color on the actual castle. The DCA map is featuring the new World of Color One show.

The “Magic Happens” parade returns to Disneyland February 24th, Food & Wine Festival returns to DCA March 3rd, Toontown opens fully in Disneyland March 8th and we have yet to get a closing date for Splash Mountain. So, since they didn’t bother with a Lunar New Year DCA map this year, I’m thinking these maps will hang around for awhile. My guess, we’ll get new maps with Toontown fully reopening March 8th. Happy Collecting!

Codes are DLP-012723-ENG & DCA 012723-ENG

2023 Maps!!!

I’m still waiting on the official scans but wanted to share a quick scan of the new map covers. They’re beautiful!!! Disneyland features King Arthur Carrousel while DCA features the Pixar Fun Wheel. Codes are DLR-010923-ENG and DCA-010923-ENG. These should probably only be out until Thursday the 19th as Lunar New Year starts at DCA begins on the 20th so get them now. Plus we have the Disney 100 with it’s new firework and WOC shows starting on the 27th so maps may change a lot in the next month. Also, the 27th brings Runaway Railway to Disneyland so it will be cool to see how the maps look.

HolidayTime is here!!!

HolidayTime at the Resort is here and we got some new maps. Disneyland features an updated picture of the snow covered Castle while DCA features dancers from the Festival of Holidays street show. I got to say, not a big fan of the DCA cover. Just seems like a poorly aimed shot to choose to be a cover of a map. For those who collect the other guides; there is a Festival of Holidays taste passport with a small map included inside and there is also a Downtown Disney Holiday shopping map. I’m assuming these maps will stick through the whole HolidayTime season which ends on January 8th, 2023. Fingers cross we get some awesome 100 years of Wonder maps when that celebration begins on January 27th.

We got November Bridge Maps

I almost didn’t think it was going to happen because the Halloween Time maps probably could have lasted us through to the HolidayTime starts but the resort shocked me and released some November bridge maps. They will only be out until November 10th as the HolidayTime celebrations starts on the 11th which will bring us new maps. We got some simple character cover maps this time around as Disneyland’s map features Minnie on the cover and DCA features Iron Man. Finding Nemo submarines finally got added back as a ride within the Disneyland map and both maps now feature an ad for the newly added MagicBand+ service. Happy Collecting.

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

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!

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
