New York World's Fair 1964-65 Discount Ticket Book

Is everyone ready to visit the 1964-65 New York World’s Fair? Let’s save some money and get one of these “discount books” sort of like an “Entertainment Book” for the World’s Fair.

Several of these tickets are “Mail Order Only” and require some work on your park, no emails accepted. You can save an entire 15¢ on Walt Disney’s “It’s a Small World”. I wonder if there was a song that goes with this attraction - Maybe Daveland knows? Here's one of the actual tickets from the attraction (link).

Mail your check or money order to Time Square New York and hope for the best. By the way, that little logo at the lower right is for Local One of the Amalgamated Lithographers Union, still in existence (link).

The A.M.F. Monorail looked scary and fun at the same time, 50¢ off, lets all go!

The Log Flume sounds neato, is 10 feet per second fast?

Your guess is a good as mine for the rest of these, I’m more impressed by the variety of “safety” papers that were used, but alas, no “Globe” paper.

All the backs of the non-mail in tickets look like this. I'm wondering how many places had signs up saying "We no longer accept Sav-Pak Book coupons"!

Wow, what a great item! I wish I had one. The mail-in concept is kind of a lot of work to save 15 cents, but back in 1964, 15 cents was the equivalent of $1000.

I do have a complete, unused ticket book from the 1939 New York World's Fair, I'll have to try to post that some day!
