California Adventure Wing is now open!

Announcing the rope drop for the newest section of the Earchives, Disney’s California Adventure! I have scanned and uploaded every California Adventure map that I currently possess, which marks another milestone: a park that I don’t have to revisit immediately. Every other park has accumulated additional maps in the time it took to scan that collection. Of course, it has not even been 24 hours since I finished the processing for California Adventure, so maybe that’s not saying too much…

Some parks will need a very large update. For example, MGM/Hollywood Studios has a stack that is probably 4 inches high. But first I want to scan my maps of overseas parks. Those will not take a very long time, and could probably be done in one installment like California Adventure.

I really want to get through these maps, though, because I have SO much other source material I would like to share. Things like historical Eyes & Ears issues going back to the 1970’s (that’s the cast member newsletter for Walt Disney World if you aren’t aware). Ride operations manuals. Vacation planning guides. There are so many wonderful vintage photographs, illustrations and articles that I want you all to see!

Stay tuned, and keep checking back! Also, if you have anything you’d like to contribute I would be so grateful. Just contact me if you do!

P.S. In case you’re keeping track, the collection is currently at about 382 maps online for you to browse!

Disneyland filled up to the present

I was able to get all the 2010 through 2013 maps for Disneyland scanned and uploaded for your enjoyment today. Even through it is only 4 years worth, there were quite a few maps during that period so it took a bit of time.

I will be heading to California Adventure next. Even though the park is only a bit over a decade old, there are a number of maps to scan for that park.

Even though I “finished” Disneyland, I have recently acquired a number of older maps and guides from its history including the 50’s, 70’s and 80’s. I’m really excited to make those available to everyone, but I really want to get all the parks represented first. After California Adventure I am going to get all my international Disney Parks maps scanned. I don’t have a lot of those yet, so that shouldn’t create too much of a delay before going back to fill in maps for the parks I already started on this site.

Thanks again for looking! I welcome any feedback, either through comments or email. I look forward to hearing from you!
