On November 6, 1967 Disneyland held one of the magical “Private Parties” for the Illuminators (not to be confused with the Illuminati) and the California Grocers Association. “California Grocers Nite” was held from 7pm to Midnight. I wonder how many tickets were sold?
Refund only allowed if the party is cancelled due to inclement weather. Wouldn’t it be neat to know the weather at Disneyland for any particular day in history? Someone should write a book about that (link).
From this Sunday's upcoming Summer 1968 Vacationland post, I bet the Illuminators were pillaging and plundering on their private nite! Exactly what detail in Pirates of the Caribbean was an aspect taken from Adventure Thru Inner Space, which actually opened 4 months after Pirates!
