This article from the Spring 1977 edition of the Disney News explains the new “Exclusive” Passport to Disneyland (available only to Magic Kingdom Club Members). The article refers to some vintage passports that were “brightly colored wrist ribbons” has anyone ever seen one of those?
Here are two unused passports from the first run in 1977, just think of those unrealized happy memories. These Passports were only good until May 31, 1977, so forget about using them in the busy summer months and you’ve only got 4 days to use them for the new Space Mountain.
The basic disclaimers are on the back. What if you have nowhere to tie the little string?
The 1977 passports are HUGE! As you can see here by 1978 they got the passport down to a more reasonable size. And they added a little brass grommet to prevent the string from tearing loose; I wonder how many complaints City Hall got with the first tickets “All I have left is this stupid sting!”

On page 18 you’ll find the prices for Disneyland and fun note about the up coming Space Mountain – is that Space Mountain font great or what?
A nice two page article about the La Boutique d’Or in New Orleans Square. Is this shop still there? With 35+ visits to Disneyland in the past 2 years you’d think I would know this!!
Artificial snow at Disneyland, like that’ll ever happen!
Possibly more than you ever wanted to know about the Disneyland Band.
“Ooo-la-la” Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo, I remember waiting in line to see this in a theater that had only one screen, do they still have those?
