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!
