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 that were once available at Disney California Adventure.  To view the complete list, check out the Buena Vista Bugles page

HolidayTime 2019 maps are here!

2019-11-08-Covers

The new HolidayTime maps were released yesterday.  Although I feel they look like pictures from prior year maps at a slightly different angle, I do like the addition of the accent shapes in the background of the plain colored areas.  Adds some character.  These should be out until January 6th when the HolidayTime celebration ends.

Codes are DLP-110819-ENG & DCA-110819-ENG

Inside Scans:  Disneyland & DCA

Estimated schedule of upcoming maps:

-Jan 7: Christmas Over (Disneyland & DCA)

-Jan 17: Rise of the Resistance Opens (Disneyland)

-Jan 17-Feb 9: Lunar New Year (DCA)

-Feb 28-Apr 21: Food & Wine (DCA)

November Bridge Maps

2019-11-01 Covers

The November Bridge Maps came out today and will be out until November 7th at which time we’ll get the next set of HolidayTime Maps.  I dig the covers.  The Disneyland map has the same overused Haunted Mansion Holiday picture but now with some eyes all over it.  The DCA has a cool Captain Marvel cover.  Get these maps now as they’ll only be out for 7 days.  Codes are DLP-110119-ENG & DCA-110119-ENG

Oogie Boogie Bash 2019

2019-09-17 OBB Cover

Here’s the Oogie Boogie Bash Map which is the new Halloween Party taking place at DCA.  This party replaces the Mickey’s Halloween Treat which used to take place at Disneyland.  This is a very hard map to get your hands on as they only hand them out after you enter the gate and they’re handing them out only 1 per person.  Happy Collecting.

Code is: DCA-091719-OBB  Inside Scan:  Oogie Boogie Bash

HalloweenTime Maps are Here!

2019-09-06 Covers

The HalloweenTime maps came out today and the designs covers are finally new images.  Disneyland features Mickey & Minnie in front of the Main Street Pumpkin while DCA features the Coco Festival.  Codes are DLP-090619-ENG & DCA-090619-ENG.  I’m assuming these should be out until HalloweenTime ends on October 31st.  Then we’ll get the November bridge maps until HolidayTime maps come out on November 8th.

New DCA Bridge Map

2019-09-03 Covers

DCA released a bridge map featuring the new Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind on the cover.  Looks nice!  This map will only be out for 3 days as the HalloweenTime maps will be out on Friday!  Codes are DLP-071119-ENG & DCA-090319-ENG.

Minor Disneyland Change and Next Week!

IMG_20190829_0002

So, to my surprise, there was a small minor change in the Disneyland map over the Summer.  It seems on July 11th, they updated the Disneyland Map.  The main change is the renaming of Space Mountain to Hyperspace Mountain and it looks like they changed one of the noted items in the inside flap.  I have updated the listing.  Code is DLP-071119-ENG. Inside Scans:  Disneyland & DCA

Next week should be interesting.  Most of the main entertainment ends on Monday, September 2nd including Tale of the Lion King which means we could possible get a bridge map for Tuesday, September 3rd through Thursday, September 5th leading into the new HalloweenTime Maps which should be out Friday, September 6th.

Disneyland Change?

I just found out that Disneyland has a new code on their map DLR-071119-ENG that I missed.  I haven’t seen the map in person so I’m not sure what changed inside but it’s the same Millennium Falcon cockpit cover.  Anyone got one of these yet? Pic Below.

Also, the Lion King show is due to end September 2nd which is currently on the DCA cover but Halloween Time doesn’t start to September 6th so we may get a bridge map in between there.  Keep an eye out.
