It’s 1973 and the Magic Kingdom is only 2 years old but ready for some Night Time Fun! “We’re open ‘til 1” (June 11 – September 1).
New attractions! Walt Disney Story, now gone. Plaza Swan boats, gone too. Tom Sawyer Island, still there!
A 50¢ parking ticket from August 19, 1973. It looks like they parked at Goofy 46 and 47.
Hey I parked near them!
Ticket book from June 1973.
The June 1973 attraction list.
Here’s a “9 Adventure ticket book" also from June 1973 (you won’t find that on the flyer above). It's from Eastern Airlines. Looks like you got $1.05 discount and 1 more ticket.
Wait a second, if you compare this June 1973 attraction list to the June 1973 Attraction list on the above “8 Adventure ticket book” you’ll notice there is an attraction missing for the Eastern Airlines folks, too bad for them!
The Hall of Presidents from an old post card, not sure if it’s from 1973 but let's pretend it is.
And the 1973 Guide book. I’ve posted the entire guide before, but here it is again.

Come back this weekend for a two part Walt Disney World review blow out, tons of photos and this blogger's usual slightly twisted point of view.
