Disneyland Records is the original name of the Walt Disney Company's record company.
After long associations with primarily RCA Victor Records, with a few select titles on Capitol, Disneyland Records was established by the Disney studio in 1956 with its first release entitled A Child's Garden of Verses. Most of its output is mainly children's music and recordings, mostly based on (or around) Disney cartoons, though the label has also produced several recordings that do not involve any Disney characters, such as the "Children's Favorites" series. An extensive catalog is listed below, including read along records, full-length albums, singles, and EPs on all three speeds traversing many children's classical and jazz titles ensued before the company changed its name to Walt Disney Records in 1988.
Today, Walt Disney Records still occasionally uses the Disneyland Records name on special products that are often "retro"-themed, such as the CD soundtrack to Up, or The Silly Symphony Collection LP album set.

Six-inch 78-RPM Disneyland records were made from 1956 to 1966 by A.A. Records, (later a part of Pickwick International) who had made Little Golden Records from 1948 to 1968. The Mickey Mouse Club records were made of orange styrene, and other Disney titles were molded on black styrene, often with a teal-blue label. These discs were created in a double-inventory with their 45-RPM counterparts and played with the same LP needle used for 45's. The only difference was up in the corner of the sleeve, the words `78 RPM' were either printed on the sleeve itself, or in earlier editions, as the call numbers for the titles were the same, a sticker saying `78 RPM' was pasted over the `45 RPM' statement underneath.

7-inch singles and EP's
For the first ten years of its existence, Disneyland Records created all single-song titles in both 6-inch 78 RPM as well as 7-inch 45 RPM formats. Made of styrene, both wore out quickly under the heavy tonearms then featured in children's phonographs and due to the brittleness of the styrene broke more easily than old shellac 78's. Finding a Disneyland 45 pressed onto vinyl is rare (even rarer if it's in good condition). Unlike Pickwick's other accounts such as Peter Pan Records or Cricket Records, no Disneyland 7-inch 78 RPM's exist, however a very limited selection of 7-inch 45-RPM EPs exist featuring up to five minutes of playing time per side, similarly to the 10-inch 78's.

10-inch 78 RPM EP's
These often featured a related collection of Mickey Mouse or other Disney songs and stories which would normally have taken up 5 or 6 of the six-inch 78's or 7-inch 45's. Made in the same factory as the Mercury Childcraft ten-inch orange styrene EPs and Big Golden Records series of 10-inch yellow styrene 78-EPs, these were typically cheaper than THREE of the aforementioned six-inch or seven-inch single titles, (79 cents in the Woolworth's for example when the 6-inch and 7-inch were 29 cents each and full albums were around $1.49). They often had five or six minutes on each side as opposed to the one-or-two-minute programs on the 6-inch and 7-inch discs, however the series was very short-lived and were only issued on brittle styrene from 1956 to about 1959 or 1960 depending on the source referenced. Vinyl versions are extremely rare to find.
Unlike conventional 78's of the period, of which production by the major labels was winding down by 1956 when Disneyland Records was starting up, Disneyland 78's were played with the same LP stylus as conventional 45's and 33's. However, listeners typically never paid attention to the notice on the label stating that they should only be played with an LP stylus, and as a result many of these ended up being torn to shreds by both the heavy tonearm weight of the period and the oversize 78 stylus.

12-inch DQ series LP's
These were nominally the same as any other normal LP record. The earliest titles from the late 1950s were recorded at and pressed from Capitol Records on Hollywood and Vine. They are identified by the words "hi-fidelity" on the cover under the Disneyland name in place of the word RECORD as on the later editions. On the disc itself, instead of a circular groove at the end of each side as on a modern LP, there is off-center/eccentric groove at the end of each side, causing the stylus to slowly wander back and forth if left unattended. Most of these have a plain yellow label, however some have a blue, green or red label. Beginning in 1976, the records would be pressed with a yellow "rainbow" label.
Later pressings were made by varying companies. RCA pressings have a slightly blue tinge to the vinyl similar to many conventional RCA pressings of the mid-1960s. MGM pressings have a slightly brown tinge to their vinyl similar to any MGM/Verve/Metro pressing of the same period and the Columbia pressings of the early 1970s have a slightly red tinge to their vinyl similar to their conventional pressings.

The DQ Series seems to have been a value-oriented LP series with new and re-released versions of soundtracks. Some of the albums, however, were cover versions of the songs in the various films, and not true soundtracks. Prices were advertised at $1.98 each.

ST Storybook LP series
This was normally a standard 45-minute 12-inch disc over which the story as well as any related songs were split fairly evenly over the two sides. The earliest of these had a hole through the front cover called the Magic Mirror through which a portion of the first page of a 12-page book could be viewed. The book usually would have illustrations and some text to describe what happens on the record, though some later titles (in the late '70s and early '80s) would contain a transcription of the record's dialogue (excepting song lyrics.) The earliest pressings have a plastic barrier over the "magic mirror" hole.
These titles told a story from the viewpoint of a main character, often voiced by any one of a number of famous Disney voice actors such as Robie Lester, Ginny Tyler, Dallas McKennon, Grey Johnson, Teri York, Rica Moore, Verne Smith, and Dennis Day, and featured extracts of dialogue and original songs taken directly from the film soundtrack and included in the production. Therefore it was often more economical to buy the storybook edition for the same price as a normal Disneyland LP record because both the story and all the songs from the normal record were included.
In other cases, cast members often came in specially to reprise their roles on record, for example in Babes in Toyland where Ed Wynn reprised his role as the Toymaker and other long-time Disney actors filled in for the rest of the cast. In other cases, such as in Heidi (1968), new musical numbers and a new script were written especially for the record and recorded fresh with a new cast, many of which featured famous radio personalities.

The WDL Series was marketed as a premium line of soundtracks and music from Disney films rather than children's albums. However, many of the albums (e.g. Disney's Merry Christmas Carols) were not derived from Disney films. Prices were advertised at $4.98 each.
The exception is WDX-101 which is the original soundtrack for the film Fantasia featuring Leopold Stokowski and the Philadelphia Orchestra. This was first released in 1957 on a Bel Canto two-track deluxe stereo double-reel set and subsequently released on both a monaural as well as stereophonic three-record set with a full color 16-page book which retailed for $12.98 for both the stereo double-tape as well as the LP editions.
The vast majority of WDX-101 copies are monaural, as the vast majority of stereo LP editions were produced by Buena Vista Records. Stereo Disneyland Records editions can be found, however and can be discerned by either the white oval STEREO or yellow DISNEYLAND STEREOPHONIC sticker on the upper right hand corner as well as on the discs themselves.
Even more rare are the RCA Victor editions of the album. So far, only Stereophonic RCA Victor editions have been found which can be discerned by the white outline of the Dog and Phonograph logo and the words RCA VICTOR in the upper right hand corner.

7-inch Little-LP books and records
- Main article: Disney Read-Along
Disney Read-Alongs are a series of illustrated books for children with accompanying recordings of the books being read. The first Read-Alongs, book-and-record sets, were released in 1965 by Disneyland Records; several hundred titles have been produced.
These were typically adaptations of popular Disney movies, cartoons, and other stories, running 24 pages. A narrator (or in some titles, a character from the story in first-person) read the story, and dialogue and songs from the original source were included. The sound of Tinker Bell's chimes was the signal for the reader to turn the page. The books always contained the tag line "SEE the pictures, HEAR the record, READ the book." The first editions typically had this introduction:
- "This is a Disneyland original Little Long-Playing Record, and I am your story reader. I am now going to begin to read the story of [insert title here]. You can read along with me in your book. You will know it's time to turn the page when Tinker Bell rings her little bells like this: (sound of 'chimes' ringing). Let's begin now."
Meanwhile, the second editions (released beginning in 1976), and new titles released thereafter, typically had this introduction (since the second editions were also released on cassette), and still do to this day:
- "This is the story of [insert title here]. You can read along with me in your book. You'll know it's time to turn the page when you hear the chimes ring like this: (sound of chimes ringing). Let's begin now."
(Note: Both editions of Peter and the Wolf did not include a chimes ring and thus that part of the introduction was skipped.)
Some titles also had different signals for turning the page, but most were presented in this manner. Also the way the story was presented differed from the first and second editions. In the former, the story was presented in its entirety on side 1 (on some shorter ones, the story was read twice), with one or two songs related to the story on side 2. In the latter, the story was spread out across both sides of the record with the related song(s) playing after the story was finished.
In the late 1970s, Disney started releasing Read-Along titles on cassette in addition to the versions on records. The cassette versions usually had the story in its entirety, plus the songs (if applicable) on both sides making it unnecessary to turn the cassette over to listen to the rest of the story. As such, the sides were not designated. The cassette versions were based on the second editions.
- "That was the end of the story. If you would like to hear it again, turn the tape over." (1977–88)
- "That was the end of the story. If you would like to hear it again, just turn the tape over." (1988–97)
There are the CD editions in now, too.
- "That was the end of the story. If you would like to hear it again, just put the disc back to track one." (2009–present)
Disney also produced titles based on non-Disney properties, such as the Star Wars films; these were released under the Buena Vista name (one exception was E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, which was released under the Disney name). They also produced titles adapted from the Peanuts animated specials under the Charlie Brown Records banner, and which had a specialized introduction:
- "Hi. I'm Charlie Brown. You can read along in your book as you listen to the story. You'll know it's time to turn the page when you hear the chimes ring like this: (sound of chimes ringing). And now we present [Peanuts-related title]."
