Disneyland Hospitality Ticket Books.

Time for a look at some Disneyland Hospitality Ticket Books. No, not tickets to Hospitals, these were ticket books sold only at Hotels and Motels in the Anaheim area.





These were pretty good deal, but I bet you would run out of tickets on the first day!






Two pages of “services”. Don’t forget you can use your BankAmericard at Disneyland.








Simple Logo, simple Operating Hours.






Here’s the admission tickets from the front of a June 1978 Hospitality Book from a previous post (link). This is my favorite serial number in my collection…






These are a couple of stray “2nd Day” main gate admission tickets. They are “Void’ because they are detached, rats! This first one is on the smaller tickets, but not two on a page as in the June 1978 example above. I’d place this around 1976, that’s about the time the prices or values disappeared from some of the tickets.





This weather-beaten “2nd Day” is the larger pre 1974 size ticket and based on the Child admission price I’d place this in the early to mid 1960’s. The Globe Safety paper is still vivid even though this ticket looks like its been through the ringer.






Speaking of Hospitality Books, the same eBay seller from my previous 1955 ticket book post also has a 1971 Disneyland Hospitality Book for sale (link). Mint and unused it’s worth the buy it now price; it's a fairly rare large format ticket book, great to near-mint shape and has a low, low low serial number. Oh, I am in no way connected to or will profit from this eBay seller, I don’t even know who it is. Also, this one is out of my league for the moment, so now's the time to stock up on that Christmas Gift for your favorite blogger (wow that was shameless…)

How on Earth did you ever snag a "00001"?

Wow, neat! Nice group of Hospitality books, as you know I stupidly sold the only one I had. Oh well...

Never even heard of these. How do you keep surprising us, Tim?

Admission for Hospitality Delhi said...

Your recent blog on the Admission for Hospitality Delhi is simply great. However, inclusion of the names of top MBA institutions in India would have added more charm to it.
