Walt Disney’s First Hand-Drawn Map of Disneyland To be Auctioned

Though dozens of Disneyland attractions that were in the original park have since been torn down or replaced, there are some still standing today that were a part of Walt Disney’s vision from the very beginning.

In 1955, Disneyland opened its doors and became Walt Disney’s first theme park dream-come-true. But before that day could come, Walt needed investors.

The New York Times reported that a hand-drawn map, created by Walt himself and a friend named Herb Ryman, was completed “over one rushed weekend in September 1953 as part of a frantic effort to secure funding to build Disneyland.”

Now that map – the first piece of paper that shows Walt’s vision for Disneyland – is going to be auctioned off to one serious Disney fan.

Van Eaton Galleries will auction the map in June and its value is currently estimated at $750,000 to $1 million,

Take a closer look at the map HERE.
