Disneyland Hotel Special Picture Books

I am making available custom made picture books. These are full of rare, unique and many never before published pictures from the Disneyland Hotel's past. These are pictures only unless otherwise noted below. I have really researched and have carefully prepared these to come up with extra special items for each of these books. Each volume is chock full of pictures from the personal collection of the Wrather family,  (some with supporting documents) set to a particular theme, see below. I will be making just 50 copies of each title listed below.

If you have a personal theme and you would like a custom photo book, please let me know and we can put together something really special.

Books are 11 1/4" x 8 3/4" in size and 30 pages each. Price is $30 per standard book or $40 each for custom/personal books plus $3 each for shipping. Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery as these are print on demand. Allow one extra week for personal/custom books.

For PayPal, please use to remit payment. Due to the special nature of these books, we will not honor refunds. All sales are final.

Volume 1: Polynesian themed. From the early 1970's to the early 1980's, the Disneyland Hotel celebrated the Polynesian culture. Beautiful and rare color shots which are Tiki themed.

Volume 9: From the late 1960's to the late 1970's, many rare shots taken from the Sierra Tower showing the Hotel's changing landscape. Olympic Pool, Plaza Building plus newly discovered shots from the mini-golf course and other golf facilities at the Disneyland Hotel. This edition is full of never before seen or published photographs and is my personal favorite.

Volume 7: 1982-1983 convention center construction and opening. Many overhead shots plus vintage ads and brochures announcing the Hotel's newest convention facilities.

 Volume 6: Late 60's early 70's Marina Tower construction and opening. Includes colorful shots of the brand new lobby and interior design of the Disneyland Hotel from 1970. This book does have limited text as well as photographs of rare documents relating to the building of the Marina Tower.

More volumes soon to follow. These books contain pictures from the Wrather families own private and personal collection.
