Those folks over at The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks had their very own Private Party at Disneyland 40 year ago, May 8th 1970. Do you think the serial number represents 14,380 tickets sold? That number seems about right based on the “estimated attendance” figures for private parties on weekends as shown in my recent post of the Parkalendar (link).
There’s that weird wording we’ve seen before about “excess monies” being "retained by the Lodge for its services". What excess monies are they talking about? How could you ever have excess money, its sure never happened to me!
Here’s the cover to an excellent Vacationland from Winter/Spring 1970. The 1970 Vacationlands are some of my favorites, and this is the first 1970 version I’ve posted.
This issue has only two main articles; however they are lengthy and detailed. Knott’s Berry Farm Revisited is SEVEN pages long, almost unheard of in a Vacationland magazine. Eight pages if you count the Knott’s advertisement on the back cover!
“One Step at a time” is a five page article all about the Matterhorn Mountain climbers. Come back on Bonus Sunday for the rest of these two great articles and the entire magazine.
Why don’t you go a head and “Take Disneyland Hone”…
A dandy of a centerfold. Check out that line for the New Haunted Mansion!
And lastly here’s a scan for all you sugar sack on a drinking fountain fans (we know who we are).
