Looks Like We Started Something! - Disneyland ’86. I’ve heard a story about how some cast members altered the slogan to “Looks like we stepped in something”! The graphic of Mickey does look like he is about to step on “something”. This Golden Passport is on thick paper and almost feels like a real “Golden Ticket”, OK maybe not, but it shines pretty.
Looks like we’ve got a Complimentary ticket here, NOT FOR SALE, nothing to see here, keep moving. Interesting that this passport may not be used on the day it was issued, but otherwise appears to never expire. I suppose the missing stub portion could have an expiration date, something else I need to find out!
Here’s the colorful cover to a press package for the big “something” promotion (what did they start, Something to Celebrate maybe?) The press kit is missing the information sheets, which is too bad, they are always fun to read. I have more from other years, stay tuned.
The press kit does include the great black & white press photos. All kinds of wonderful things coming to the Magic Kingdom in ’86; Captain EO would come in September and Star Tours would wait until January 1987.
“The prizes keep coming” They gave away a 1986 Firebird everyday thru May 31st! That a lot of Birds! Hey, that family of five is going to have to leave one of those kids at Disneyland, Firebirds only seat four. I say leave the little girl with the fashion violation suspenders!
As stiff and uncomfortable as the Country Bears look I’d take them back even dressed up like this.
Same for Videopolis, I’d take it back too; everyone get their Guess jeans ready, let’s evict the little princess’s.
Hey, Disneyland can use this same photo and text next year, just change the dates.
Circus Fantasy. There was a reason Walt got rid of the Circus at his park, why did they try to bring it back?
