Walt Disney’s Original Disneyland Map Could Sell For $1 Million

The first-ever map of Disneyland could fetch up to $1,000.000!  The 3 1/2 by 5 1/2 foot tri-fold, hand drawn poster created by Walt Disney on a weekend in 1953, features the first ideas- hand drawn- of the legendary amusement /theme park. Some of the attractions had their names changed, others scrapped entirely. Walt and his brother/business partner Roy Disney, used the drawing to obtain financing from investors to build the park. The map fell into the hands of a collector some 40 years ago, through a former Disney worker who was friends with Walt himself. Now the avid Disney fan (who visits the park  at least 3 times a year) wants to pass on his prized possession to another die hard Disney fan. The map goes up for auction next month.
