1956 Convention Brochure
From the time Jack Wrather first began plans for the Disneyland Hotel, he wanted to include convention facilities at the Hotel. The pictures below show the very first convention brochure from 1956. As they clearly state, Jack wanted to appeal to families. "By having your convention at the Disneyland Hotel, you can bring the whole family. They can enjoy Disneyland while you attend the convention." He also wanted to state that they could accomodate all different sized groups from 10 to 300 people. The first convention facilities were upstairs above the shops and restaurants. Tomorrow, I will post more pictures of the convention areas from the Molly Wrather Dolle collection.
