Warm up the time machine and set it for February 26, 1977 because we are going to "A Private Party at Disneyland"! Yes it's the Sears Family Fun Party - Saturday Nite 8:30pm to 1:30am!
What, you don't work at Sears? Well it just so happens I did! Yup, Sears was my first real job, employee number 2519 (why do I still remember that?) Anyway, we'll pretend you're part of my family and therefore part of the Sears Family, so you can come along.
Free Parking too! I'll drive my 67' Olds Toronado, it seats six no problem!
I am sure you are wondering what I did at Sears? (probably not, but I'm gonna tell ya anyway). I was hired at the "Customer Convenience Center" but I quickly got promoted to work the Ticketron Machine. That was a blast, and it made me suddenly VERY popular in High School (psssst, need Journey or Styx Tickets?).
I still have a couple of "Voids" I saved. These are from when you loaded the tickets backwards or misaligned them. Snow Summit all day for $6.50! Ah the Laserium for $3.50. Starship, hey I went that one!
And for some reason (my ticket obsession started earlier than I thought?) I saved a big stack of these "Blanks" from June of 1980...
And from my donated copies of a ticket binder that I believe still remains at Disneyland, here is a printed Ticketron Disneyland ticket from December 31, 1981.
It's 1:30am, the party is over..... I'll drive home, the Toronado rides nice so sit back and take a nap...
