Magic Kingdom Club - 1980

Ready for more Magic Kingdom Club goodness? From May 1980, here’s the Club price guide. Remember, these ticket prices are NOT for the general public!

Operating Hours - still closed Monday’s and Tuesday’s for the off season.

Here’s a 1980 Passport. By 1980 they had abandoned the little “hole & string” idea, I’ve seen these with safety pin holes, but this ticket must have been kept in the guest's shirt pocket.

No date on the back, just Globe Ticket company’s weird little logo and “S 260” which appears on lots of non-lettered tickets and I still have no idea what it means?

How about an 11 adventure “All E ticket” book?

I like how Dumbo is used on the Magic Kingdom Club banner!

By 1980, the courtesy and MKC ticket books no longer had a separate “Welcome” sheet, its combined on the first page with the first of 11 “1/2” sheet tickets.

Although these little tickets are for ANY attraction (basically all E tickets) the small size makes them seem less valuable.

1980’s attraction list is quite impressive!

Since we're all vintage Magic Kingdom Club members here on the blog, lets check out the 1980 membership guide.

Neat photo of Alice and her buddies in Fantasyland and is Goofy trying to tell us something?

1980 is Disneyland’s Family Reunion year.

What a great grand prize, round trip airfare, a 5 night stay at Disneyland and $1,955.00 is CASH!! Canada residents have to answer a “skill testing question” should they win. This contest in only open to MKC members, is that fair?

You’ve got lots of choices for your vacation stay at Anaheim.

Awesome Knott’s photo!

Opens December 21st, I can’t wait!

That IS quite a list of attractions - it would be perfect except that there's no Nature's Wonderland. There's that "S-260" at the bottom of the list again.

As a kid, I loved the fact that those tickets could get you on to any ride, but of course I miss the A thru E tickets now!

Ha...that Knott's photo of the Corkscrew is reversed!

I have that 25th birthday plate and the book...I bought them both in the park that year.

Very cool!

Just checking in again....I remember a lot of people (myself included) pinning their passports to their clothing. I'm guessing the park sold a lot of pinback buttons once they eliminated the passports with the string.
