It’s March 24th, 1971 and you’ve just been handed this flyer at the parking lot entrance. You have two wonderful ways to enjoy Disneyland. IMPORTANT: you better read this thing!
1. Personally Guided Tours. I’ve never done it. I’m not sure about 1971, but in the older Vacationland magazines the guided tours seem to be available on the off season only, which makes sense. Now they run them all year? How can they do a tour on days when there are 60,000 “guests” at the park?
2. Ticket Book Specials. “Maximum Family Enjoyment” folks, it could on happen at Disneyland.
A slightly used, kinda worn, September 1970 Junior Ticket Book, $5.45 for 15 adventures, you do realize that’s an $11.75 value; check the chart above, its true.
Spring Fling ’71. Coming April 3rd (1971) - See: Gladys Knight and the Pipps (go ahead, start singing it, "He's leaving, leaving on that midnight train to Georgia); Dawn with Tony Orlando. It wasn’t "Tony Orlando and Dawn" yet (ready; Whoa tie a yellow ribbon 'round the ole oak tree it's been three long years do ya still want me) Great prizes too. A PINTO, even hot combs!!!
For those of you who like to know wha the park hourswere 38 years ago (Progressland) here you go.
This receipt is dated March 24, 1971, it appears to be for two items and ¢18 tax (5.15 percent?). Department 89? I see sleepless nights ahead trying to figure out what this was for.
This last little item came with the stuff above, its Me-n-Eds Pizza - Order 119. I like the “It’s a small world” reference.
