1962 Guided Tour Script

This one goes out to Jason Schultz, Mr. Disneyland Almanac, and his amazing new book about Disneyland.  Visit him at Disneyland Nomenclature.

This is the 1962 script a Disneyland host or hostess would have memorized in order to conduct paid (and, I presume, VIP) guided tours around the park.  Lots of cool information about extinct or semi-extinct (the Treehouse) attractions.

Why not take this with you on your next visit to the park and treat your friends and family to a good ol' retro Disneyland experience?  Riding crop not required.

No, the riding crop IS required. Thanks, Jed!

Wow, that is fascinating! And also an impressive feat of memorization. I would have to write the whole script on various parts of my body as a cheat sheet.

These scripts are great. Well, you learn something every day. Free vitamin pills!? I once stopped in at an information booth on Main Street to find out where to purchase some aspirin. Instead they gave me 2 free aspirin and a cup for the water. I’ve always thought that was a nice courtesy. Sometimes it's the little things.

That's a lot to memorize! Great peek into the past.
