Win a Trip to Disneyland - 1979 Sears Wish Book

Finally a new post!  OK, this post is way late; its been a long, hot, busy summer, I moved, I took a vacation, the dog ate my homework, etc.

This awesome scan was sent in by loyal blog reader "js", thank you kindly! Back in 1979 Sears could make your dream come true with a trip to Disneyland to see the newest Attraction: BIG THUNDER Mountain Railroad.  I hear BTMR is about to undergo a complete refurbishment, including replacing the 1979 tracks (along with that funky notch/weld in the full right helix) and I hear they are going to "plus" the scenery up a bit. I'm going to the park next week to try and ride and photograph it before the redo.




It could only happen at Disneyland...

Yes, take lots of photos of Big Thunder! It will be interesting to see how it will be changed. An animatronic of Johnny Depp would be nice!

The "Big Thunder Strikes" part of the narration is quite familiar to me so I think I saw this commercial back in 1979.

I also find it interesting that they added the text about being open "Wednesday Thru Sunday."
