Disneyland Hotel Guest Guide 1956 to 1958

I don't know about you but I want to see the "innards" of brochures from the 50's not just the covers. It tells so much about the Hotel and what was added and what was featured.

This was given to guests after they registered either in the Hotel Lobby or from their car. This brochure is unique in that no room number was pencilled in on the cover and no building was circled on the layout page. I have several of these same brochures with these markings but only one that was left blank. This was used in 1956, 1957 and partially in 1958 until a fourth North Garden Structure was added in 1958. I love the outfit the Bellman is wearing. Wouldn't it be fun if the Disneyland Hotel went retro and had their employees dress like this? It could add a whole new theme to the Disneyland Hotel. After all, it is the original Hotel of Disneyland, even if no structures remain that are featured in this brochure.
