This Mattel Music Map was designed as a souvenir for the 1955 opening of Disneyland in Anaheim California and depicts sixteen attractions originally available to parkgoers. What makes this view of the park so exciting is not what can be seen, but rather what can be heard.

Five 78 RPM records were included to accompany the map; an introduction (voiced by Tinkerbell and Mickey), Adventureland, Frontierland, Tomorrowland, and Fantasyland. Each record plays voices and musical tones ranging in duration from one to three minutes, and provides a unique, comprehensive sensory experience for Disney lovers everywhere. Cutouts were even included (upper left) to be folded and sat atop the arm of the record player.

A fascinating piece of cartographic ephemera commemorating the opening year of ‘The Happiest Place on Earth.’ Includes the original case, making this a scarce collectible. Copyright Walt Disney Productions.
