The 55ers: The Pioneers Who Settled Disneyland
Signed by the Author!
Meet All the Original Disneylanders:
When Disneyland first opened in 1955, the employees weren’t pretending; the park was staffed with true-to-life characters: cowboys in Frontierland, jungle explorers in Adventureland, saloon performers at the Golden Horseshoe, and small-town shopkeepers on Main Street.
Now for the first time you can get too know these fascinating personalities in The 55ers: The Pioneers Who Settled Disneyland. You’ll meet over 700 Year-One cast members from every department in the park, from Disneyland’s notorious first general manager, C.V. Wood, and his “Texas mafia,” to bristly band conductor Vesey Walker, on to spacemen, sweepers, magicians, firemen, mule wranglers, and can-can dancers. The book also features more than 300 never-before-published images, most of them provided by the original Disneylanders themselves!
This is the most unique cast of Disney characters you will ever encounter!
