"Disneyland The Inside Story", was written by Randy Bright and published by Harry Abrams, Inc. copyright 1987. Complete with its dust jacket, this hard to find, out of print book describes the struggle Walt Disney endured to bring this now integral part of American society to fruition. It is the exciting account, told for the first time, of Walt Disney's dream to build the ultimate fantasyland. This fascinating book shows Disneyland from the first rough sketches in the 1930's through all the stages of its development. Illustrated with 238 fabulous pictures, 151 in full color and many of which had never been published previously. All of the favorite attractions, old and new, are shown in artist's sketches, storyboards, models, and photographs of the park in full swing.
The dust jacket reads, "No other place speaks to Americans -- or, indeed, to people the world over -- so directly, enjoyably, memorably as Disneyland. And no other book captures its story so fully, pleasurably, beautifully as DISNEYLAND: Inside Story. The author, Randy Bright, began working at Disneyland as a college student in 1959. He worked on nearly every attraction in the Park and was at the time of publication Vice President of Concept Development and oversaw the creation of new attractions in Disneyland and other Disney theme parks.
