Disneyland's Big Band Festival - May 27 & 28, 1972

Two wonderful ways to enjoy Disneyland”. I’m really digging the cool blue ink of this parking lot flyer from May 27 & 28, 1972.   You better read what’s inside, it’s IMPORTANT!

Another Disneyland Entertainment Special at Regular Prices!” I bet that weekend was indeed “two fun-filled nights of entertainment”. Then a Memorial Day Parade on Monday and the new Bear Country!

Here’s your two wonderful ways to chose from. Come on, go for the Deluxe 15 Ticket Book, its Disneyland!

For goodness sakes “don’t misplace your car”! Oh and Pluto says I have permission to kick your rear-end if you leave your pets in the car.

How about some vintage color? This snap shot is naturally undated. I could try and pass it off as 1972, but I think the Upjohn Pharmacy left Main Street around 1970, so let's call it 1968.

I do like the "attractive tour guide" for your guided tour :-)

I find something interesting as well:

This is the second spam posted by Diaz Howard on Disneybogs I have come across this morning.

Diaz Howard not only seems grammatically challenged, he has spammed numerous Disney blogs this morning. What a jerk!

I wonder why they felt it was necessary to tell folks how "important" that flyer info was? I mean, other than not leaving your pet in the car, it's all pretty tame stuff....

Katella Gate said...

Major: Why did they tell you it was "important" when it wasn't really?

It's a technique I call it "false alarm" advertising, just like when you get letter that looks like it's from the IRS, but you find out it's really from a local car dealership, advertising "Independent Rear Suspension".

My guess is that they wanted to boost the guided tour numbers, since that has top billing in the folder. Locals will walk on that offer, but out-of-towners might not know that the service is available.

Sometime in the early '90's (I think) General Motors Corp bought out Hughes Aircraft Co. (They thought they could tap into the vast retirement fund . . . NOT !)

Anyway; as a big kick off, all Hughes employees were given the run of Disneyland. The park was rented out for us, and us alone (no other folks allowed). It was great fun, but dumb me . . . I didn't keep anything from that night. Not even photos.

Do you, or anyone, have some stuff from that night?
