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

Lunar New Year

The Lunar New Year event kicked off today which brings us a new map with a great Minnie cover. It’s always fun to see any of the Fab 5 on the cover. I believe the Chewbacca Disneyland map will be sticking around until Monday as it still has “It’s a Small World Holiday” listed in it which closes on Sunday.

Codes are DLP-011022-ENG and DCA-012122-ENG

January Maps

Hi Collectors, January maps are here. Disneyland features a recycled Chewbacca while DCA has a new Avengers Campus picture. Codes are DLP-011022-ENG and DCA-011022-ENG. We are hopefully going to have a very busy spring for map collecting. I estimate these will be out until January 20th as the Lunar New Year Festival kicks off on the 21st.

Inside Scans: Disneyland & DCA

Estimated Schedule:

January 10th – January 20th – Chewbacca and Avengers Campus Maps

January 21st – February 13th – Lunar New Years on DCA and possibly a new cover on DL

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.

New HolidayTime 2021 Maps now with Genie+

It’s been awhile since we had a mid-season change within the maps, but the resort shocked up yesterday with new HolidayTime maps that now include a section inside dedicated to the new *cough* flawed *cough* Genie+ service. Also, looks like they designed these new maps before they were able to get It’s a Small World Holiday re-opened as they decided to swap the cover out to now feature the Lighted Castle. Happy Collecting and Happy Holidays!!!

HolidayTime 2021 is Here!

HolidayTime maps are here. They came out Friday, November 12th and we expect them to be around until the HolidayTime festivities end on January 9th, 2022. Disneyland’s cover features the Small World façade that has been used a lot in the past while DCA finally has a new cover featuring a performer from the Viva Navidad festival show. Happy Collecting and Happy Holidays!

November Bridge Maps

Sorry for the late update, November bridge maps are out. They are only out for a limited time to bridge between the HalloweenTime maps and the Holiday maps. The dates should be November 1st through November 11th. Codes are DLP-110121-ENG and DCA-110121-ENG. Looks like we got some new covers. Disneyland features Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge at night while DCA features Avengers Campus during the day. Inside scans are coming soon.

Halloween Time is Here!!!

Halloween Time arrived to the Disneyland Resort today and with that, we get new maps. Disneyland features the famous Main Street Mickey Pumpkin while the DCA map celebrates the COCO Festival show. I love both pictures but really wished they didn’t bring back the color bars at the top and the bottom. The full picture maps we’ve been getting the past couple months have been really slick looking. But happy to receive maps anyways. Happy Collecting!

Codes are: DLP-090321-ENG & DCA 090321-ENG

These maps should be out until November 1st.

New Maps, Same Covers, Updated Codes!

Looks like we got some new maps. Same covers, updated codes and some minor changes on the inside including an update on the COVID regulations and the return of the remaining attractions that have been closed. Also, looks like the added some Wifi Hotspots through out the park. Happy Collecting!

Avengers Campus is Here!!!

Avengers Campus is here and with that we have new maps for both parks. Disneyland has the same cover but features a new code in the bottom corner.

Noted changes within the Disneyland map include: New name on nametag, new food featured in the mobile ordering ad, Merchandise mobile checkout added to mobile checkout section and they moved some pet service icons around on the actual map.

I don’t normally feature the special area maps but it there is a special Avengers Campus guide and an opening day map like they did with Star Wars Galaxys Edge.

Welcome Home! New Maps are Here!

FINALLY!!! The parks are open and we got new re-designed maps to celebrate. I love the simplicity and the fact they lost the color bars across the front top. The ads on the back are now replaced with COVID warnings. These came out on Friday, April 30th and I assume will be around until June 3rd as Avengers Campus will open at DCA on June 4th.
