Three Wonderful Ways to Enjoy Disneyland - 1961

Here's a super vintage Disneyland parking lot brochure from 1961.  The "tri-fold" design was introduced in 1961 and this is version 3.  You can see versions 4 and 5 over at Stuff from the Park (link).  

This is a "Special Season" version with special tickets choices. The guided tour is a few cents cheaper than summer season.  The "Special Season" ticket books were full of "any ride" tickets just like Magic Kingdom Tickets (I'll have to check and see if I have any of this 1961's my collection). And the "Passport" with unlimited rides was also available.

The best part of this little brochure is the on the spot accounting. It appears our party had three adults and two children. It also appears they either didn't but the ticket books and paid full price for the attractions OR they were doing the math to see if they saved money!  Passports for everyone would cost $25.50 so lets hope they chose wisely.

Looks like my average lunch at Disneyland.

How can you tell that your version is "version 3"?!?

Looks like they should have purchased the passports.

$32 equals about $250 in today's dollars!
