A loyal blog reader sent in today’s wonderful scans, a big thanks up front, these are rare items indeed. This orange ticket has an ultra low number and is reported to be from opening day.
The ticket above came from a woman who was a square dancer on opening day. Her name badge from that day is below. Progressland, can you run “Vera Klawitter” through your Disneyland database and let us know if you come up with anything interesting. By the way, check out Progressland's blog (link) 82-83 Peterpan & Mr. Toad demo pics, WOW!
Another early ticket with the serial number 9751. Opening day? How many cars did the original lot hold? Was it full opening day?
Here’s a fun and historic letter. Dated July 5, 1955, this letter from the Red Wagon Company invited some lucky son-of-a-guns to the July 17, 1955 “Invitational Press Preview” at Disneyland. In addition to all meat products in Disneyland being provided by Swift, they also provided Brookfield butter & cheese, and “Vigoro” will be used on shrubs and lawn.
