The only major European country that did not have its Disney magazine before the war was obviously Germany. Hitler had come to power in January 1933. But there was, nonetheless, a Disney magazine in German published in… Switzerland. Micky Maus Zeitung was born thanks to publisher Bollmann from Zurich, in December 1936 (when its issue 0 was released) and lived till September 1937 (issue number 18).

I love the covers of this pre-WWII magazine and am sharing a few here.

A few years ago facsimiles of all the issues were released in Germany. If anyone knows where I could locate them, I would love to buy all of them.
