"A Fun Party" at Disneyland - January 25, 1974

How about a “Fun Party”? Exclusively for all of you San Diego County Families, January 25, 1974 is your private party night at Disneyland. Private parties are great, usually low crowds and short wait times; however San Diego County is pretty big! Look who found their "Happy Place" in the tea cup!






Free parking too! Refund will be allowed on if cancelled due to inclement weather? That will never happen at Disneyland (link).






Here’s the cover to a mint condition Vacationland from Fall/Winter 1973-74. This photo also appears on the Fall/Winter 1973-74 Disneyland in park Guide (future link, I haven't posted it yet!).






The Wildest Show indeed, sorely missed.






Sara Lee was the sponsor for CafĂ© Orleans, I never knew that! “The Showboat” dessert sounds yummy – “a delicious butter pound cake with a scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream smothered in hot fudge sauce and topped with whipped cream and walnuts”! I see the practice of putting a sign up listing the food with no prices isn’t new to the park. I guess if you have to ask, you can’t afford it.






Is there still a crystal shop on Main Street? Oh boy, I should know this, having loitered about on Main Street for hours on end. I’m going to say yes; at least I know they sell fragile glass type things somewhere on the east side of Main Street.

Yes, there was a crystal shop on the east side of Main St, at the time of my last visit in 2008. It had some overlap with the the New Orleans shop. Beautiful things, for which I have no use whatever.
