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

New March Maps

2019-03-01

Since the Food & Wine Festival at DCA kicks off today, we got some new maps!   Other than the recycled Lunar New Year Map, I’m really loving the covers this year.  They’re all original and all fun.  Disneyland features the Mickey Mix Magic Show and the DCA features a family enjoying the Food & Wine Festival.  I’m assuming these will be around until April 23rd when the Festival ends.   Happy Collecting!

Codes are DLP-030119-ENG & DCA-030119-ENG

New February Maps

2019-02-18 Covers

Now that the Lunar New Year celebration ended yesterday, we got some new maps today and I’m happy to see some new original covers.  Disneyland features the original lead float from the Soundsational Parade and DCA features a daytime shot of Guardians of the Galaxy.

These maps should only be out for the next two weeks as we should receive at least a new DCA map reflecting the “Food & Wine Festival” on March 1st.

Codes are DLP-021819-ENG and DCA-021819-ENG

January Maps – Scans Added & Timeline Confirmation

Here are the scans for the new maps that came out on January 25th.

Inside Scans:   Disneyland & DCA

The Maps listings have also been updated.  The link on the official site show the date range on these maps as 01/25-02/17 so my timeline seems to be fitting so far:

January 7th – January 24th – Train & Pixar Pier Maps

January 25th – February 17th – Both Parks update maps to reflect Get Your Ears On official kickoff at Disneyland and the Lunar New Years’ Event at DCA (Lunar New Year ends Feb 17th).

February 18th – February 28th – DCA updates map to no longer reflect the Lunar New Year Event. (Possible change to Disneyland too?)

March 1st – April 23rd – DCA updates map to reflect the Food & Wine Festival Event at DCA. (Possible change to Disneyland too?)

New Get Your Ears On & Lunar New Year Maps

2019-01-25 covers

New maps are out today reflecting the “Get Your Ears On” celebration on the Disneyland map along with “Lunar New Year” on DCA’s map.  I love the Disneyland cover even though I read online it’s a picture from the WDW parade.  The DCA map is sadly the same exact cover from last year.  I was hoping for something new.

Codes are: DLP-012519-ENG and DCA-012519-ENG

I’ll upload the inside scans once I receive them.  These maps should be around until February 18th which is the day after the Lunar New Year celebration ends.

Happy Collecting!

Thank you to @touringplans on Twitter for the pictures.

January 2019 Maps and Timeline Update – Inside Scans Added

2019-01-07 covers

Inside scans have been added to the site.

Codes are: DLP-010719-ENG & DCA-010719-ENG

Inside Scans:  Disneyland & DCA

In a interesting note, on the Disneyland website in the coding of the link to the maps show them labeled as 01-07 – 01-24.  So, my theory of having new maps on the 18th for the debut of Mickey’s Mix Magic nighttime show is blown.  I’m guessing they will just now update the paper show guides instead.

Based on this finding, here is my updated guess of a timeline for new maps:

January 7th – January 24th – Current Train & Pixar Pier Maps

January 25th – February 17th – Both Parks update maps to reflect the return of the Soundsational Parade at Disneyland and the Lunar New Years’ Event at DCA (Lunar New Year ends Feb 17th).

February 18th – February 28th – Both Parks update maps to no longer reflect the Lunar New Year Event.

March 1st – April 23rd – Both Parks update maps to reflect the Food & Wine Festival Event at DCA.

Happy Collecting!

January 2019 Maps & Timeline Thoughts

20190109_195252

Sorry for the lack of update.  I’m still waiting on scans of the insides but thought I would share the covers for the January maps that came out on the 7th.  I’m assuming these should last until approximately January 18th.

Codes on these new maps are DLP-010719-ENG and DCA-010719-ENG

Scans are coming soon.

January 18th is when Mickey’s Mix Magic night show is supposed to begin at Disneyland so I would assume there will be a new map to reflect that but  January 25th is when Soundsational Parade returns to Disneyland and the Lunar New Year event begins at DCA so we should get new maps to reflect that.  I think we’ll have a busy beginning of the year for map collecting.  Here is my guess on the activity:

January 7th – January 17th – Current Train & Pixar Pier Maps

January 18th – January 24th – Disneyland Update to reflect Mickey’s Mix Magic (possible DCA update too to reflect it on the inside highlights)

January 25th – February 17th – Both Parks Update to reflect Soundsational and Lunar New year (Lunar New Year ends Feb 17th)

February 18th – February 28th – Both Parks Update to not show Lunar New Year

March 1st – April 23rd – Both Parks Update to reflect DCA holding the Food & Wine Festival

Happy Collecting!

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!
