Operation M.O.U.S.E. Money

Following up on last Friday's post for Operation M.O.U.S.E., a super nice reader of the blog send in this scan of what can only be described as a "Pre-Disney Dollar". Thanks Jack!

Its even on my favorite Star and Castle paper! Notice the expiration date, I am guessing these were from the first year of Operation M.O.U.S.E.(1968) as my flyer (shown below) is for January 1969 so I would guess the Operation M.O.U.S.E.money was good for up to a year. Plus the colors don't match the 1969 flyer.

Like you, I enjoy the fact that it was printed on the "Castle & Stars" paper!

That's interesting that it says "or for admission to any DL attraction." How much was a single "E" ticket back then?

Oh, and how was the park yesterday?

Major; There's just something about that Castle & Star paper... It even feels nice!

Tokyomagic; "E" tickets around 1968/69 were 75¢ for adults & 65¢ for children.

Ok, I never made it to the park on Monday, well, I got near the parking lot and, well, its was seriously windy and 90+ degrees! Something weird happens when it gets crazy windy at the park, maybe the wind blows away some of the pixie dust? I went in late Oct. 2007 and it was the same wind & heat and it wasn't any fun at all. I will be going next week however!
