Paying Attention: Thanks to BoingBoing, we can now all get a glimpse of the proposal that Walt Disney produced in advance of creating Disneyland. It takes a lot of vision to build a Magic Kingdom and it took a lot of work to produce a document that could  convey the scale and ambition of Disneyland to potential investors. This is a very rare document–the story says that even the Disney companies and museum don’t have a copy–and it makes for great reading and keen insight. Definitely worth your time.
