A Christmas Adventure in Disneyland

By Keith Mahne

Let's kick off the Holiday Season the vintage Disney way. I'm talking about the tale of A Christmas Adventure in Disneyland. We are about to have a listen to the story from a 1958 Disneyland Records LP that is sure to get those Christmas memories flowing. It's about two children, named John and Jane, on an adventure at Disneyland during Christmas Eve. This grand LP even included a full size booklet with some beautiful art that you'll see as well and covers eleven pages and has poems and song lyrics accompanying it. So, let's get in the Christmas spirit, shall we?! Join me after the page break for A Christmas Adventure in Disneyland brought to you by Disney Avenue...

(For your listening pleasure, please pause the Disney Avenue Music Player prior to playing A Christmas Adventure in Disneyland below if you are on the desktop version of the site.)
