You're Invited to a 25 Hour party!!! July 17, 1980. For Disneyland's first really big anniversary they had a grand 25 Hour Party to celebrate 25 years! 25 continuous hours at Disneyland!
Here's a pair of those 25 Hour Party tickets. Notice the stubs are detached, but were retained. Free parking too!
One free meal was included with each ticket. It's eggs, bacon and pancakes at the Riverbelle Terrace for me!
There are two seemingly identical gate flyers for the event. Both have the same front and back as shown here.
The inside pages of each is different. Here is the left inside page of version “A”.
Here is the inside left page of version “B”, no “Special Birthday Entertainment”
This is the inside right page of version “A”
The inside right page of version “B”
Here is your party hat with that rubber band just waiting to snap you in the neck!
This is actually from the April 11, 1980 Family Reunion Night. The castle looks, well, it looks like 1980!
Check out the tons of entertainment! I wonder what "Old Mother Logo" was like in Bear Country?
How about some local newspaper articles about the big event?
From a previous post back in March 2008, here is a great Los Angeles Times supplement showcasing Disneyland's 25th anniversary.
