The ’67 Edition of Dixieland at Disneyland

For today’s post we’ve got another rare and exciting Vintage Disneyland Ticket(s) currently up for auction on eBay (link). These tickets and the program are so out of my neighborhood I can’t see them from my front porch. The Seller was nice enough to give his permission to post his auction, so the “Thou shalt not copy” doesn't apply to the blog. Blogger disclosure: I am in no way connected to the seller or the auction and will not profit from its sale.

“The ’67 Edition of Dixieland at Disneyland” Saturday Night September 30 1967 - 8 PM ‘til 2 AM, wow 2 AM! Can you imagine admission to Disneyland, unlimited rides and tons of incredible entertainment all for $7.






Interesting how the back of the ticket refers to the event as the “Special Dixieland at Disneyland Party” – Jason; you better cross check these titles…






This is part of the reason the auction is out of my bid range, that’s one awesome and rare souvenir program – Matterhorn1959, do you have this one? See plenty of super Dixieland programs of at Matterhorn's blog Stuff from the Park.






7th annual presentation. I believe Dixieland at Disneyland ran for 10 years, 1961 thru 1970.






Why is Louis Armstrong on the Tomorrow Stage? Shouldn’t he be over in the “new” New Orleans Square or back on the Mark Twain?






When did Disneyland start printing the phrase “the happiest place on earth” – I would guess around 1965. I bet Jason knows, I already owe him $231,955.22 in Disney Dollars for previous Magic Kingdom Club research so we’ll just add this to the bill.

Egads... how exactly does one determine the true value of paper Disneyland memorabilia?

Whoa! One thousand???? Dollars???? Good luck to that seller!

I don't know when they started printing the phrase on various paper items, but The Happiest Place on Earth dates back to the mid-1950s, at least (1956 or 1957, depending on if you include "The" or not).

I would call "Special Dixieland at Disneyland Party" a non-preferred/lead-in term.

Dixieland at Disneyland occurred from 1960 to 1970. In 1971 it was Dixieland and All That Jazz, then in the mid-1970s to early 1980s it was Disneyland and All That Jazz.

Whoa. I sure would love to have one of those flyers!! It's super rare, and certainly valuable, but I'm not sure it's in the $1000 category. Still, if I was rollin' in dough, I might buy it!!

For that kind of money I want Louis Armstrong and The Firehouse Five with Ward Kimball at my doorstep ;-)

P.S. This is the right way to spell Kimball. What the hell was I thinking... must be early or way to hot here!

Hey Progressland, I didn't know that they had changed the name of this event! I have a "Disneyland and All That Jazz" entertainment guide from early eighties. I'm going to put it on ebay with a "Buy It Now" price of $500. I'm just saying....

TokyoMagic!, I'll give you $750! (After VDT makes good on his invoice.)
