Disneyland's 30th Anniversary

While I’m at the beach on the French Riviera for the next few days please enjoy these “rebroadcast” posts from 2008. Magazine Monday will return with a new post this Monday.


July 17, 1985. Disneyland had a neat logo for its 30th Anniversary. From the looks of the ticket, they went for a 24 hour party this time; I suppose 30 hours would be just too long.

The official invitation. Sister Sledge and all kinds of food for the 12:01am to 8:00am party goers. You “regular” people don’t get to enter the park until after the special meals are served.

The envelope please…..

A couple of Gift-Giver tickets. The first one was guest number 246,524,591. WOW that’s a lot of people! The second ticket is a blank, and obviously not a winner.

Here’s a fun wrapper, for Hot Dogs maybe? It does not appear to have been used. It’s got some neat artwork on it for a food wrapper.

I attended the 30th Birthday party. I remember standing outside the gate in the middle of the night waiting for the park to open. I remember seeing Animotion at Videopolis (interesting that the flyer was still calling that area the Small World Meadows) and I remember leaving in the afternoon before Ronald Reagan showed up to give his speech (I don't think that was announced in advance).

Here's a link to a paper cup that matches your hot dog wrapper: Vintage Disneyland Cups

Remember to take your beret OFF before you swim. Otherwise you'll stand out as a tourist.
