Placards placed in rooms to announce Disneyland Hotel attractions are very sought after collectibles these days. The one pictured below dates from some time in the early 70's. Usually printed with a feature on either side they helped guests by announcing times and locations of the numerous amenities at the Hotel.

Here is a collection of personal family photos taken either at the Disneyland Hotel or at Disneyland Park.
This first shot was used in the Wrather family's 1959 Christmas Card.
Next up were taken from the family's favorite attraction, Peter Pan.
Here is another family photo taken at the Disneyland Hotel around 1960.
Also from 1959, Bonita Granville-Wrather with son Christopher at the Disneyland Hotel.

I found a film in the storage vault title "A Special Place" and almost did not take it to have converted to DVD. It was made for convention marketing at the Disneyland Hotel and was filmed from 1961-1962. This footage was shot in beautiful living color with a soundtrack and features some incredible footage.
