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).

Disneyland Blog posted a preview of the Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge Map today.  The cover seems pretty boring to me but the land itself looks great in the map.

May Maps now out!

2019-04-24 Covers

Just a reminder, these new May maps are out with the new rule changes included inside.  This should be our last Disneyland map before it becomes Star Wars everything for what I’m sure will be years to come.   I’m hoping the Star Wars covers will at least be nice scenic shots of the land and not just Kylo Ren on the cover.  Fingers crossed.

Codes are DLR-050119-ENG and DCA-050119-ENG

More Updates & Changes

2019-04-27 Covers

They just keep changing it on us.  I visited Downtown Disney and noticed the Monorail station had no maps out at all for Disneyland which I found puzzling.  I  walked down to the gate to find the May 1st – Mickey Parade Float maps were already out.  It seems they have been busy and ran out of the Mickey Mix Magic cover maps and went ahead and released the May 1st map early.  This new map features the new rules that go in effect May 1st of no longer being able to smoke in the parks and no large strollers.  The Pixar Pal-A-Round maps are still out at DCA so I’m going to go ahead and declare the two maps above the April 27th – April 30th Maps.

Codes are DLP-050119-ENG & DCA-042219-ENG

April Bridge Map to May Rule Changes

IMG_20190424_0003

Ok, I believe I have clarification.  This new DCA map was released to reflect the opening of the PhilarMagic show at DCA today.  It’s meant to bridge the end of the Food & Wine Festival map and the new maps I shared a couple days ago which are due to be released May 1st.  The new May 1st maps will be the first to reflect and state the new Disney Parks rules which go in effect that day of no longer smoking in the parks (the smoking area symbols are now gone) and the size restriction of strollers.  So, expect these bridge maps to be out until Tuesday, April 30th and the new Mickey Parade Float and Donald cover maps to be released Wednesday, May 1st.

The codes on these bridge maps are: DLP-030119-ENG & DCA-0402219-ENG

April to May Bridge Map or Maps?

Thank you to on Twitter, it now seems DCA released a new map on Sunday 04/22 featuring a very odd choice – the backside of the Pixar Pal-a-Round wheel.  I get wanting to get the sign in the picture, but couldn’t they use photoshop to flip the wheel around and show the Mickey side on the map.  Why show the ugly backside?

Disneyland stayed the same with the Mickey’s Mix Magic cover.

Now this brings up more questions.  How long are these out for?  Are they out to 5/1 which are the dates of the new maps I posted yesterday?  I’m hearing Philarmagic may open Friday which is 04/26.  Could these maps be out for only a couple days?  If anyone knows more info, please share.  I will post more as I hear.  Happy Collecting!

New Maps for May or Now?

2019-04-24 Covers

DLR updated their website with new maps but are these maps going to come out tomorrow or May 1st?  Disneyland has the new Mickey Parade float on the cover while DCA has Mickey’s PhilharMagic image on the cover and also has it listed as an attraction on the inside.  It was announced that the PhilharMagic show will be coming to DCA in April but I  have yet to hear an official announcement of it opening.  Also, it’s odd that the codes are 050119-ENG.  Lately, the code has actually lined up with the date the map came out.

So, one of two things is happening:

  • The plan is to open Mickey’s PhilharMagic on May 1st and they didn’t want to make filler maps for between when the Food & Wine Festival ended (04/23) and then so they’re just or going to release the map now even though the attraction hasn’t opened yet.   Or…
  • There is a filler map that is coming out tomorrow and they don’t want to bother to upload the filler map to the website for only a week so they just went ahead and uploaded these maps.

I plan to head to the parks on Saturday so I will know for sure then if I don’t hear anything prior.

These maps should be around until Star Wars opens at the end of May.

New Maps?

Just curious, has anyone been to the parks lately.   It was quietly announced that Jessie’s Critter Carousel opened over the weekend so did they update the map to reflect that?  The March DCA map had the attraction listed but has “Coming Soon” written where the description should be.  If you see a new map, please let me know.
