One lonely "E" Ticket - October 1963

This Disneyland ticket book from October 1963 has only one ticket left and it’s an “E” ticket – how could that have happened?

All five of Walt's realms are represented on this classic longer form “E” ticket. Ironically, 48 years later four of the realms still have the same attractions! If only they had kept Nature’s Wonderland.

It’s all good.

$3.95, that’s about the price of a Churro.

It’s been a while since we had a vintage Vacationland, here’s the cover to the Fall 1963 issue.

Even though the “River Belle” has been remodeled a few times it still looks pretty much the same today.

The entire show is presented in “Audio-Animatronics”.

Great early color photo of the interior – I want one of those chairs!

Yummy! Come back on Bonus Sunday for the entire issue.

What did they do with those chairs now that it is all bench seating in the Tiki Room?

How weird, usually a ticket book has a few A, B, or C tickets, but no D or E tickets.

Love the Dolly Madison ad!

Whow! That photo really takes me back. I was lucky enough to be part of the group of employees (we were NOT cast members back then) to "test out" the Tiki Room. We would enjoy the show about 5 times a day for two weeks before the show opened for real. I remember the chairs, and it seemed less personal when they were replaced.
