The Disneyland News debuted in July of 1955 and was published monthly until March 1957. The tabloid sized paper was available for 10 cents at the main gate's newsstand or from newsboys on Main Street. The Disneyland News contained Disneyland events, related news and ads from park lessees. From 1959 to 1968 the newspaper was printed sporadically, never published more than once a quarter. After 1968 the paper remained inactive, until special issues of The Disneyland News were printed in 1985 (for the park's 30th anniversary) and in 1988 (Spalsh Mountain's unveiling).
Disney Legend Marty Sklar was student editor of UCLA's Daily Bruin, when he was recruited in July 1955 to work as editor of The Disneyland News.
