Forty five years ago today Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room opened its doors and thrilled audiences for the very first time. Today let’s celebrate with a few vintage items.
First up is a pair of what I believe to be the original style of Tiki Room tickets from 1963. I have seen these for sale (rarely) for lots of money (too much) and they always state they are from 1963. They are not dated, but they do match the style of all the original 1963 Enchanted Tiki Room art work. Those of you that have been with the blog since the early days will recognize these from a prior post (link). These have been rescanned and hey, it’s a celebration so we get to see them again.
The back is not very interesting, consisting of just this:
Here is a rare ticket; this is from a “Magi-Pak” ticket book from February 1964. The ticket book contains 15 “Any Attraction” tickets, but since Walt’s Tiki Room was owned by him, not Disneyland, it required a separate ticket (like the ones above). This ticket book has 15 tickets, but one is special, it’s also good for the Tiki Room. The accounting on all of this must have been interesting. How much did “Disneyland” pay Walt to include this ticket in the book? It’s kind of like moving money from your left pocket to you right pocket!
How about some Vintage audio visual fun? “A Disneyland Record” presents songs from Walt Disney’s The Enchanted Tiki Rook. The cover is dated 1968. The 29¢ price was “blacked out”; I wonder what it was changed to?
The record itself is in fine shape for being 40 years old.
This must be the original sound track, it sure sounds fun. I broke it into two pieces, blog spot was not letting me load part two, check back later, I’ll try and update it.
Tomorrow; More Grad Nite? Sure, why not....
