Spring 1976 Disneyland Guide Book - Complete

For your leisurely weekend viewing pleasure, today we present a Spring 1976 Complete Disneyland Guide Book!

First However, take this 11 Adventure book with you, be sure to make wise choices, over forty attractions and you only get eleven.



Ok, some of you may notice this is a June 1976 ticket book with a 50 cent higher price than is listed in the Spring 1976 Guide. Oh well, I didn't have a complete April 1976 ticket book and I wanted to be sure you had a full book of tickets for your adventure today.


This person obviously had more than 11 tickets, plus the book is full still??? I bet they had a passport or another ticket book.




This little guide book came to me (via EBay) in mint condition. It looks like it was printed yesterday. The paper is bright white and all the print is shinny. These usually start to get yellow after a few decades, but someone must have kept this one sealed up tight.



















WOW, that was fun!!!!

I have finally started to get my website together. It's not even close to ready yet, in fact all I have done is register the name (http://www.vintagedisneylandtickets.com/) and pay for a years worth of hosting. I'll post on my blog when there is actually something on my website, it's just blank for now...

I will be working on it in the next couple months. In addition to putting up all my tickets, I am going to create a section just for Guide Books, and I will scan all my guide books in there entirety. I don't think anyone has done that yet? I will post a list of all the Guides I have soon, I am missing some. I will be taking any and all scan contributions of Guides and Tickets, thanks for viewing my blog!

Sounds like your website is going to be a fantastic reference source for tickets. Good luck!

You might consider packaging the guidebooks as PDFs or CBR/CBZs (basically renamed rar and zip files that can be read as multi-page documents by comic-book reading software). Much handier than opening and closing individual jpgs.

Hey Anonymous, I like that idea! My new scanner came with the software to do just that, hmmm. I'll have to try it out. Thanks for Comments :-)

Much appreciated! I really look forward to your web site. I've only see a few scattered guidebook scans (in their entirety) around the net; the closest I've seen to something comprehensive is scans of guidebook covers over at Jan's History of Disneyland pages (http://www.jansworld.net/DL_pages/disneyland_pages_index.htm). I'll be happy to help with any I have that you're missing!

I recently came across my Disneyland Guide (from my first visit) from fall-winter 1972-73 with the Country Bear Jamboree on the front cover. I believe this is the first guide that they didn't use a photo on...is that correct? Also I've had several people interested in buying it and I'm not sure of it's worth. Are you able to help me out? It's not mint, but I would say it's good condition.

Thanks for any help, Tracey
