The Imagineering Field Guide to Disneyland is a 2008 Disney book about Disneyland.


The fourth in a series of pocket-sized paperbacks answers the question, “What would it be like to walk through Disneyland with an Imagineer by your side?” The Imagineering Field Guide to Disneyland provides that experience: pointing out details and telling stories, back stories, and Imagineering insights never before heard, condensed into a portable, easily-referenced park guide. You'll never spend time at Disneyland the same way again.

Each spread contains fascinating textual information and related images (drawings, photos, graphics) such as:

  • Set-up, backgrounds, and origins of each park/land/mini-land
  • Concept art to compare to the finished show
  • Timeline information (opening dates, previous shows in the same venue, alterations and updates)
  • Photography of the details and big pictures being discussed
  • Special props, design sources, artistic inspirations, nomenclature gags
