Family Fun Night at Disneyland - May 25, 1978

Here's an interesting ticket. On the surface it seems like the basic private party ticket. A quick Google search on Studio One and The Tavern Guild reveals this wasn't your average Family Fun Night! I wonder if the folks at Disneyland knew what these folks were about? Maybe, it is the Happiest Place on Earth ya know!

Wow! If only they had gotten Sylvester to perform on the prow of The Mark Twain – now that would have been something special indeed! Lol!

This is pretty interesting from a history standpoint; you would expect an outwardly conservative place like Disneyland to sweep gay people under the rug, especially on "Family Fun Night", and in 1978!

I happened to be there for that night and it was incredible being the First gay night at Disneyland. I still have my pink ticket. My understanding is that contracts were signed and paid for and then Disney found out that Studio One and the Tavern Guild was an all gay nightclub organization and tried to get out of it but couldn't. People (gays) were waving their tickets from car windows on the fwy as you got closer to Disneyland.
